The Korean Tour suspended Bio Kim earlier this week for making an obscene gesture aimed at a fan during the final round of the DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gyeongbuk Open.

The decision to ban the South Korean for three years has caused a massive backlash, with many suggesting the punishment was too severe.

Kevin Na was one of those who believed the sentence handed out to Kim was harsh, saying that the three-year ban was ‘ridiculous’.

“The guy’s No. 1 on the money list, he’s one of the best players coming out of Korea who plays on that tour, and you’re going to put him in jail? That’s why I wore this. We’re all behind him. The whole golf industry is behind him.”
