Kevin Na didn't hold back while defending Bio Kim, the golfer who was suspended three years from the Korean Tour for giving the middle finger to a fan last Sunday.

"First of all, I don't know where to start," Na said at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, according to Golf Channel's Nick Menta.

"Yes, what he did was wrong," he continued. "Should he be fined? Yes. (But) three years is ridiculous."

Na, who was born in South Korea, called himself a "big brother" to Kim, with their relationship growing since the two played on the PGA Tour together in 2011.

Na recently spoke with the disheartened golfer, who has apologized for his actions.

Ortega to take on 'The Korean Zombie' in UFC Busan main event

  Ortega to take on 'The Korean Zombie' in UFC Busan main event Former UFC featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega will fight "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung in the main event of UFC Busan in South Korea on Dec. 21, the promotion announced on Monday. Ortega is currently the UFC's second-ranked featherweight, while Jung sits in sixth. With featherweight champion Max Holloway set to defend his title against No. 1 contender Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 245 in December, the winner of the UFC Busan headliner could be in line to be the first 145-lb challenger of 2020.In June, Jung (15-5) bounced back from a stunning last-second knockout loss to Yair Rodriguez, dispatching Renato Moicano in just 58 seconds.

"He's depressed. I mean, I can hear it in his voice," Na added. "I said, 'You know what? I know you're going through a rough time. Be good to your wife. I am sure it's hard for her.'"

Kim's wife is pregnant with the couple's first child.

The 29-year-old won the Daegu Gyeongbuk Open after his obscene gesture on the 16th hole in the final round. He was leading the Korean Tour in earnings at the time of the ban, and Kim was set to qualify for The CJ Cup on the PGA Tour. He was also in position to earn playing status on the European Tour.

"You can't take a man's job away for three years for one incident. Everybody makes mistakes," Na said. "Like I said, if this was (his) fifth or sixth offense, I get it. But when you have no offenses and have had good behavior, you're a good guy, people like him, you can't do that to a person."

Korean Tour money leader suspended 3 years for obscene gesture

  Korean Tour money leader suspended 3 years for obscene gesture Bio Kim received a three-year suspension from the Korean Tour on Tuesday for making an obscene gesture toward the crowd, according to Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner. During the final round of the Daegu Gyeongbuk Open, the Korean Tour's money leader heard a camera shutter on the 16th hole and became upset. Kim turned around and flashed the middle finger to the gallery before slamming his club into the tee block.

Na has tried to help by reaching out to those in power in Korea. He's also provided Kim with PGA Tour contacts for possible playing opportunities.

Na's caddie wore a "Free Bio Kim" hat on Thursday at the Shriners Open.

Kim won't appeal the three-year suspension. He believes appealing would suggest his apology is not sincere, according to ESPN's Bob Harig.
