According to ONEASIA
The pair finished their round, but before signing their scorecards they returned to the 13th and spent nearly two hours in deep discussion with officials, who also repeatedly consulted TV footage of the incident. Kim argued he had never grounded his club, but was eventually persuaded to sign for a six by the Korean Golf Association rules committee, who had voted 5-3 against him.
"I'm a really good friend of [Kim's] so at the moment it doesn't feel great," said Kang. "Even though I won the tournament, I just feel really sorry for him. I was actually out there to celebrate for him, but … I don't know … I don't know what to say. It's horrible."
A similar mishap
"I could have shot anything, absolutely anything," McIlroy told the BBC. "I only missed two greens and had so many chances, but it was like the story of yesterday. I just didn't hole enough putts. I created so many more chances today that it could have been 61, 62. It just wasn't to be."
