Lim Seong-jae kept his pride in Korean golf… Tied for 4th at the PGA Farmers Open
The rise of Korean men’s golf continued. From the first competition, the top 5 or higher in each competition is coming out. Of course, Kim Si-woo has already won his first championship. This time it was Lim Seong-jae (25). Seongjae Lim entered the top 5 at the Farmers Insurance Open, raising the profile of Korean men’s golf.
Im Seong-jae tied for 4th at the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of $8.7 million) and achieved the best performance in the 2022-2023 season. In the final round of the tournament held at Torrey Pines Golf Club South Course in San Diego, California on the 29th (Korean time), Lim Seong-jae tied 4 birdies and 2 bogeys to hit 2 under par 70 strokes.
Im Seong-jae, who recorded a final total of 9 under par 279 strokes, finished the tournament in a tie for 4th with Sam Ryder and Sahis Tigala (above USA). The championship trophy was lifted by Max Homa (USA, 13 under par, 275 strokes).
Im Seong-jae’s tie for 4th place is the best result in a PGA Tour event in the 2022-2023 season. In fact, it could have been better sooner than that. At the last American Express, he tied for 3rd until the 3rd day and looked forward to winning. The first tournament, the Sentry Tournament of Champions, was the same. However, the lack of back heart always got in the way. However, this competition was different. After consistently maintaining the rankings, they achieved the best results. 메이저놀이터
Lim Seong-jae, who was tied for 4th place with a 7 under par 209 strokes until the 3rd round, made a bogey on the 5th hole (par 4) while keeping the early par in the final round, but made a birdie on the 7th (par 4) and 9th (par 5) holes. I caught it and reduced one stroke in the first half. In the second half, he succeeded in making a birdie putt of over 7m on the 14th hole (par 4) and even crossed the lead. Afterwards, he missed an additional birdie opportunity, but finished the tournament by protecting the ‘Top 5’.
On the other hand, other players except Lim Seong-jae were sluggish overall. Kim Seong-hyun (25) tied for 20th (2 under par, 286 strokes), and Kim Si-woo (28) finished the tournament with a tie for 25th (1 under par, 287 strokes). Noh Seung-yeol (32) tied for 44th (2 over par, 290 strokes), and Ahn Byeong-hoon (32) lost 11 strokes on this day alone, slipping to a tie for 62nd (6 over par, 294 strokes).
Max Homa added a multiplier four months after the opening game of this season, the Fortinet Championship in September of last year, and harvested six victories on the PGA Tour. World No. 3 Yon Ram (Spain), who was aiming for his third championship this year alone, lost two strokes and was tied for 7th place (8 under par 280 strokes), making it difficult to regain the world No. 1 ranking.
The PGA Tour continues with the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which opens on the 2nd of next month.
