Rory Hie, USC All-American, has continued his comeback with an impressive tie for 19th place finish at the Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open played at the Phokeethra Country Club, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Rory shot 69-67-72-73 (281).
Rory has been fighting injury’s throughout his short professional career. Turning professional and being as successful as one was as an amateur is never a guarantee. When Rory moved back to Jakarta after his growth and development in the United State’s, he was greeted as a semi rock star. With all of the media attention pulling at Rory while he is trying to compete is a difficult task at best. Couple that with his injury’s and it is understandable why he has struggled.
Rory’s U.S. coach, George Pinnell, said, “Rory is one of the hardest working player’s that I have ever seen. I am not surprised that Rory is finding his way in Asia. Let’s hope he continue’s his improved play into the 2011 season.”
