Korean men’s golf new ace Kim Joo-hyung (20) rose to 13th in the world rankings, a personal best.
Kim Joo-hyung was ranked 13th in the men’s golf world rankings announced on the 23rd (Korean time), up one notch from Jeonju.
On the same day, Joo-hyung Kim recorded a total of 23 under par 265 strokes in the 4th round of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour American Express, which ended in La Quinta, California, USA, and finished in a tie for 6th place.
On the second day of the tournament, Kim Joo-hyung, who recorded the daily best with 10 under par in the second round and raised expectations for the championship, had to be satisfied with the top 10 by slowing down in the third and fourth rounds.
Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Scotty Scheffler (USA) remain in the first and second place in the world rankings. Yon Rahm (Spain), who won the American Express, rose one place from 4th to 3rd, and Cameron Smith (Australia), who moved to LIV Golf, fell from 3rd to 4th. 메이저사이트
Among Korean players, Lim Seong-jae (24) ranked 19th, Lee Kyung-hoon (31) 36th, and Kim Si-woo (27) 40th.
Korean players, including Kim Joo-hyung, will participate in the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of 8.7 million dollars), which opens at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, on the 25th (local time).
Unlike the usual PGA Tour tournaments, which start on Thursday and end on Sunday, this tournament starts on Wednesday, the 25th, and ends on Saturday, the 28th. This is because the schedule was advanced by one day to avoid the NFL Conference Championship game scheduled for Sunday (29th).
Meanwhile, Brooke Henderson (Canada) won the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions, the opening day of the LPGA tour where Korean players did not participate.
