Im Seong-jae, the last Honda Classic, a strong candidate for the championship

Lim Seong-jae (25) is chosen as a strong candidate for the championship at the last Honda Classic (total prize money of 8.4 million dollars).

Lim Seong-jae will participate in the PGA Tour Honda Classic held at the PGA National Champion Course (par 70) in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA for four days from the 24th (Korean time).

He ranked first in the PGA Tour’s Power Rankings. The PGA Tour explained, “Lim Seong-jae has been operating the expansion heater in earnest since the end of July. He became a strong candidate in the PGA National, where he had considerable success. He has no weaknesses and has perfectly caught up with the military.”

In the 2018-19 season, he won the rookie award for the first time in the history of an Asian national player. The regret of not being able to win even after winning the rookie of the year was resolved in the new season. After reaching the top at the Honda Classic in the 2019-20 season and firing a flare, he also won the Shriners Children’s Open in the 2021-22 season.

At the Honda Classic, which announced the start of the championship, he will challenge for his third win in his career. In particular, this year is the last Honda Classic. Honda is the longest-serving sponsor of the PGA Tour event, but decided to stop sponsoring this tournament, the 42nd. 안전놀이터

In addition, it seems that the competition will be relatively less intense as top players such as John Rahm (Spain), Scotty Scheffler (USA), and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) do not participate.

U.S. Golf Digest said, “Lim Seong-jae is a clear candidate to start the Florida swing tournament,” and “he won his first win at the 2020 Honda Classic just before stopping due to the Corona 19 pandemic. It makes a difference,” he explained.

Meanwhile, 12 Korean players aim to win the Honda LPGA Thailand, an LPGA tour event sponsored by Honda. Ko Jin-young (28), who will compete for the first time in the new year, and Kim Hyo-joo (28) and Jeon In-ji (29), who have played Aramco Saudi Ladies International, will participate. Eight out of the top 10 in the world rankings will participate in the competition, predicting fierce competition.
