Bio Kim won the DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gueongbuk Open over the weekend and that’ll be his last win for a while.
He was teeing off on the 16th hole when a cell phone went off in the crowd. He immediately threw up his middle finger in the direction of the cell phone sound.

He apologized after the round, but that wasn’t enough for the Korean Tour. They unanimously voted to ban him from the Tour for three years. They also fined him just over $8,000 and released a statement reading, “Kim Bi-o damaged the dignity of a golfer with etiquette violation and inappropriate behavior.”
