    BIO KIM, A FORMER PGA TOUR PLAYER, won the Korean Tour's DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gyeongbuk Open this past weekend. Kim also topped the Korean Tour money list.

    No matter.

    Now Kim is suspended until 2022 for a bad moment during that final round. According to media reports (and as seen above), Kim waved his middle finger in the direction of the gallery after a cellphone chirped during his downswing.

    By unanimous vote, the Korean Tour's action was swift and severe.

    The tour said in a statement: "Kim Bi-o damaged the dignity of a golfer with etiquette violation and inappropriate behavior."

    Here's Kim's act of contrition in front of the media, before the suspension was announced.

    Gotta be one of the wildest stories of the year: The Korean Tour money leader has been suspended for three years … for flipping off the crowd!https://t.co/S6eUpJzXkZ pic.twitter.com/htPXILKr6z
