Im Seong-jae has not had a top 10 result since finishing 7th at the Shriners Children’s Open in October of last year, when he participated for the first time this season.

This year, he tied for 13th in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, was eliminated from the Sony Open cut, and tied for 18th in the American Express.

Lim Seong-jae, who was tied for 4th 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. and reduced one stroke in the first half.

In the second half, he exchanged bogey on hole 10 (par 4) and birdie on hole 11 (par 3) and was unable to reduce the number of strokes further, but dropped a birdie putt over 7m on hole 14 (par 4) and crossed the lead.

Afterwards, an additional birdie opportunity was missed, but Lim Seong-jae finished the tournament by protecting the ‘Top 5’.

Homa added a multiplier four months after the Fortinet Championship in September of last year, the opening game of this season, and harvested a total of six wins on the PGA Tour.

His winning prize is 1.566 million dollars (approximately 1.93 billion won).

Homa won the come-from-behind victory by reducing 6 strokes in the final round, which started with a tie for 4th place, 5 strokes behind Rider, who was leading until the 3rd round.

While Ryder lost one stroke in the first half, Homa from the previous group pulled out only 4 birdies and tied for the lead, and the championship competition fell into a fog.

Homa made a birdie putt of nearly 4m on the 11th hole and took the lead alone, but Ryder also tied for the lead again with a birdie on the 10th hole.

Homa broke the balance by writing down the first bogey of the day amidst the shot hunting on the 14th hole, but a tricky birdie putt of about 4.5m was bent on the 16th hole (par 3), and a tight battle for the lead continued.

It was after Rider’s 15th hole (par 4) match that the game was virtually split.

In this hole, Ryder made a series of shot mistakes in the rough and wrote down a double bogey, and the winning streak leaned toward Homa.

On the contrary, Homa, who was chased by Keegan Bradley (USA) at the last minute, confirmed the championship with a birdie on the 18th hole.

Bradley was in second place (11 under par, 277 strokes) by two strokes, and Colin Morikawa (USA) finished in third place (10 under par, 278 strokes).

Rider, who had held the lead for the previous three days, had to settle for a tie for 4th place without taking advantage of the opportunity to win the first 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. 스포츠토토
