‘new groom’ Kim Si-woo is on the hunt for his 2nd win of the PGA Tour season, surpassing Yon Ram (Spain), who is aiming for world No. 1.
The PGA Tour will hold the Farmers Insurance Open on the 26th (Korean time) at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, USA. The Korean player who is receiving the most attention in this tournament is Kim Si-woo. He gained momentum by winning the Sony Open, which ended on the 16th in Hawaii, USA. Kim Si-woo, who showed a decent shot feeling by tying for 22nd at the American Express last week, rose to 13th in the ‘Power Rankings’ announced by the PGA Tour ahead of this tournament. Kim Si-woo was tied for 11th in this competition last year.
In order for Kim Si-woo to win the season 2, he must overcome Ram. Rahm showed a strong side at Torrey Pines Golf Course. He won this competition in 2017, and was in the ‘Top 10’ for four consecutive years from 2019 to last year. 바카라
The momentum this year is also steep. He lifted the championship trophy at the opening match, Sentry Tournament of Champions and American Express. Ram recorded 4 wins in 6 recent events, including 2 wins in DP World Tour events such as the Spanish Open in October of last year and the Tour Championship in December.
Rahm, who ranked third in the men’s golf world rankings announced on the 23rd, is aiming to recapture the ranking in this tournament. Even if Rahm takes third place alone in this tournament, he will surpass Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Scotty Scheffler (USA) to rise to the top of the world rankings. If Ram rises to No. 1, it will be his first comeback in 10 months since March last year.
Among Korean players, in addition to Kim Si-woo, Lim Seong-jae, Ahn Byeong-hun, Kim Seong-hyun, and Noh Seung-yeol will participate. Im Seong-jae ranked 7th, the highest among Korean players in the power rankings of this tournament. Kim Joo-hyung, who tied for 6th place at American Express, is absent to prepare for PIF Saudi International, the opening game of the Asian Tour 2023 season to be held in Saudi Arabia early next month.
