The PGA Championship opens on the 18th… Lim Seong-jae, Kim Si-woo, etc. sortie

The American Professional Golf Association (PGA) Championship, the second major men’s golf season, will be held at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, USA for four days from the 18th (Korean time).

Following the Masters in April, this event, which will produce another ‘major champion’, will feature 156 world-class players competing to win.

The size of the total prize money of the tournament has not yet been determined, but last year, the total prize money was 15 million dollars, the winning prize was 2.7 million dollars, and our money was 3.61 billion won.

The Wanamaker Trophy, awarded to the winner, is considered one of the most famous golf major championship trophies along with the Claret Jug awarded to The Open champion.

The PGA Tour players and LIV series players’ ‘pride battle’ that attracted fans’ attention at the Masters is also a point to watch at the PGA Championship.

Of the players competing in this year’s PGA Championship, 18 are from LIV.

At the Masters in April, on the final day of the tournament, Jon Rahm of the PGA Tour and Brooks Koepka of LIV competed for the championship, and Rahm became the protagonist of the green jacket.

However, LIV players performed well, with LIV players Koepka and Phil Mickelson tied for 2nd place, and Patrick Reed also tied for 4th place.

Since its launch in June of last year, there has been no case of a LIV player winning a major tournament since then.

Last year’s Open Champion Cameron Smith was on the PGA Tour when he won, then moved to LIV.

Last year’s winner, Justin Thomas, is also looking to win three PGA Championships, including in 2017.

Jordan Spieth can achieve the ‘Career Grand Slam’ by winning this event alone.

Korean players will also challenge for the second major championship after Yang Yong-eun in this event in 2009.토스카지노

Im Seong-jae left for the United States in a good mood after winning the Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship, which ended in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 14th, by 5 strokes, and Si-woo Kim, who also finished runner-up at AT&T Byron Nelson on the PGA Tour last week, is on the rise.

In addition to Lim Seong-jae and Kim Si-woo, Korean players include Kim Joo-hyung, Lee Kyung-hoon, and Yang Yong-eun.

This is the fourth time the PGA Championship has been held at Oak Hill Country Club, following 1980, 2003 and 2013.

‘Golf Emperor’ Tiger Woods is absent due to recent ankle surgery, and ‘Big 3’ Lam, who is ranked 1st to 3rd in the world, Scotty Scheffler, and Rory McIlroy are expected to compete for the championship.

If Rahm wins, he will stand at the top of three of the four majors following the 2021 US Open and this year’s Masters.

McIlroy, who missed the cut at the Masters, will challenge for the third time in his career following 2012 and 2014.
