Im Seong-jae’s first ‘Top 5’ of the PGA season

In the final 4th round of the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open held at Torrey Pines Golf Club South Course (par 72) in San Diego, California on the 29th (Korean time), Lim Seong-jae tied 4 birdies and 2 bogeys and hit 2 under par 70. 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 tie for fourth place is Im Seong-jae’s best result in a PGA Tour event this season. He has never been in the top 10 since finishing 7th at the Shriners Children’s Open in October last year, when he participated for the first time this season. After showing some ups and downs, such as a tie for 13th in the Sentry Tournament of Champions before this year’s opening game, an exit from the Sony Open cut, and a tie for 18th in the American Express, he achieved the best result of the season in this tournament. 토토사이트

Lim Seong-jae, who was tied for 4th with a 7 under par 209 strokes until the 3rd round, kept the early par in the final round of the day and wrote down a bogey in hole 5 (par 4), but made a birdie in holes 7 (par 4) and 9 (par 5). 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, but missed the birdie opportunity afterwards and finished the tournament.

The championship was won by Max Homa (USA). Homa started the final round in a tie for 4th place, 5 strokes behind Sam Ryder, who had been in the lead until the 3rd round, but after reducing 6 strokes and spreading a double play, he lifted the championship cup.

World No. 3 Yon Rahm (Spain) could have regained the world No. 1 spot if he placed in the top 3 in this tournament, but he was pushed to 7th place and had to promise the next time.

Among Korean players, tour rookie Seong-Hyeon Kim tied for 20th, and Si-Woo Kim tied for 25th.
