CNN mixes up photos of South Korean golfers

Several golf enthusiasts on social media called CNN out this weekend on a double bogey during its coverage of the Masters at Augusta, GA.

The Twitter account @wooTracker noticed that CNN used a photo of South Korean golfer Sungjae Im when covering a story about Si Woo Kim.

The tweet from @WooTracker was picked up by the media blog, Mediaite.

The @sungjaeTracker also had fun with the mix up.

Interest in Kim peaked this past week when he snapped his putter in frustration after earning a quadruple bogey.

No word of CNN snapped anything in its newsroom after being called out on the error.
