Lim Seong-jae, the sign of Korean men’s golf, will challenge for the first win of the season, 3 wins in total, and the first ‘Major King’.
Im Seong-jae will participate in the ‘PGA Championship’, a major tournament of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, which opens at Oak Hill Country Club (par 70) in Rochester, New York, USA on the afternoon of the 18th (Korean time). Im Seong-jae, who achieved a thrilling come-from-behind victory by overturning a 5-stroke car on the last day at the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour’Woori Financial Championship’, which he participated in last week for the first time in 3 years and 7 months, said, “Continuing the come-from-behind winning vibe, good results at the PGA Championship He did not hide his desire for the second major tournament of the season.
Although카지노사이트 there are variables such as adjusting to jet lag, Seongjae Lim is showing off his stable skills by recording top 10 in three consecutive tournaments on the recent PGA Tour, including the ‘special tournament’ Wells Fargo Championship (tied for 8th place). It is evaluated that he added confidence by winning a come-from-behind victory in the domestic competition, and that his first major win was not too greedy. Lim Seong-jae’s personal best major tournament performance was runner-up at the 2020 Masters.
A total of 156 world-class players participate in this tournament, with 18 players from the LIV Invitational Series (LIV Golf) participating, predicting another fierce competition with PGA Tour players following the Masters in April.
At the Masters a month ago, Jon Rahm (Spain) of the PGA Tour defeated Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson (USA) of LIV Golf, who were joint runners-up, and became the protagonist of the green jacket. Patrick Reed (USA) also tied for 4th place, and the performances of LIV players stood out.

As for the players who will stop LIV Golf’s ‘first major supremacy’, which was launched in June of last year, the ‘Big 3’, including world No. 1 Ram, No. 2 Scotty Scheffler (USA), and No. 3 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) can be picked Ram aims to win two majors in a row, and McIlroy, who missed the cut at the Masters, sets out to restore his honor. McIlroy was the winner of the event in 2012 and 2014. ‘Defending champion’ Justin Thomas (USA) is also greedy to win this tournament three times, including 2017.
I wonder if LIV’s players will continue their major promotions. Mickelson created the myth of the first ’50 major champion’ in history in this tournament in 2021, and Koepka is also the main character who achieved two consecutive victories at the PGA Championship in 2018 and 2019.
In addition to Lim Seong-jae, our players include Kim Si-woo, who finished runner-up at AT&T Byron Nelson last week, Kim Joo-hyung, and Lee Gyeong-hoon. Yang Yong-eun, the “Son of the Wind,” who beat Tiger Woods (USA), the “Emperor of Golf” in 2009, and won the first major championship as an Asian player, will also participate. Woods is absent due to the aftermath of ankle surgery.
