‘New groom’ Kim Si-woo (28), who was in the mood by winning the Sony Open, challenges to win two tournaments in a row.
Kim Si-woo will participate in the American Men’s Professional Golf (PGA) Tour American Express (total prize money of 8 million dollars) to be held in La Quinta, California, USA for four days from the 19th (local time). Kim Si-woo, who achieved a dramatic come-from-behind victory by one stroke at the Sony Open, which ended in Honolulu, Hawaii, on the 16th, is aiming for the championship for two weeks in a row. 온라인바카라
In particular, the reason why Kim Si-woo is especially drawn to this tournament is that he is also the winner of the Sony Open, but he has memories of winning the championship cup in this tournament. Kim Si-woo reached the top at American Express in 2021. However, in the 2022 competition, it was somewhat sluggish, tied for 11th place. Kim Si-woo expressed his determination to participate in the competition, saying, “It is a tournament with good memories of winning in 2021. If the fans support me, I will work hard.” If he wins, he will become the second Korean player to reach 5 wins on the PGA Tour after Choi Kyung-ju (53), who has 8 wins.
In American Express, rounds 1 to 3 are played around three courses, then the finalists for round 4 are selected, and the final round continues. It is also unique in that it is a pro-am type competition in which pros and amateurs compete together. This tournament and the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am are PGA Tour events in which professionals and amateurs compete together. Rounds 1 to 3 are held on the PGA West Stadium Course (par 72, 7187 yards), La Quinta CC (par 72, 7060 yards), PGA West Nicklaus Tournament Course (par 72, 7147 yards), and the last 4 rounds are held on the PGA West Stadium Course. The winner is determined through rounds.
In addition to Kim Si-woo, a total of 7 other domestic players, including Lim Seong-jae (25), Kim Joo-hyung (21), Lee Gyeong-hun (32), Ahn Byeong-hun (32), Kang Seong-hun (36), and Kim Seong-hyun (25), will be participating. The player with the highest world ranking is Kim Joo-hyung, who is ranked 14th.
Among the top 10 players in the world rankings, Scotty Scheffler (2nd, USA), Jon Rahm (4th, Spain), Patrick Cantlay (5th), Xander Chopley (6th), Will Jaratoris (7th and above) USA) and 5 players.
