Readers come to defense of suspended golfer Bio Kim

Tiger Woods’ act wouldn’t have played well in South Korea

If the PGA Tour took the same action as the Korean Tour did for Bio Kim’s inappropriate behavior, we would not have been watching Tiger Woods for the past 20 years (“In the news,” Oct. 2; “Koreans go cuckoo at Kim’s wild bird,” Oct. 3; “From the Morning Read inbox,” Oct. 4).

Cut Kim some slack
Bio Kim's three-year suspension is way too severe (“In the news,” Oct. 2; “Koreans go cuckoo at Kim’s wild bird,” Oct. 3; “From the Morning Read inbox,” Oct. 4). A hefty fine (say, $75,000) and suspension for three months would have been much more appropriate.

Kim showed his remorse and should be forgiven.

Toe the line, juniors … or else
So, reader John Cameron thinks that a three-year ban is an appropriate punishment for five-second lapse in judgment (“From the Morning Read inbox,” Oct. 4).

I have seen no evidence that this behavior from Bio Kim is repetitive, and from what I have read, he has apologized. To agree with the Korean Tour’s decision is absurd, but to hear it from an official with a junior-golf organization is unsettling. I hope that all of the kids with whom he associates are on their best behavior. He means business.
