Im Seong-jae has been performing well, such as 10th in this competition in 2020, 12th in 2021, and 11th last year, raising expectations for his first win of the season and 3 wins in his career. In particular, Lim Seong-jae is a new groom who got married last December, just like Kim Si-woo (28), who won the Sony Open last week. For this reason, there is interest in whether the baton for the new groom’s victory will continue.
