Im Seong-jae, 10-over par on the first day of the PGA Championship, ‘tied for 151st place’
On the first day of the PGA Championship, a major men’s golf tournament, Korean players fell into a slump.
On the 19th (Korean time), Im Seong-jae hit a 10 over par 80 in the first round of the tournament held at Oak Hill Country Club (par 70) in Rochester, New York, USA.
He recorded 6 bogeys토스카지노 and 2 double bogeys without a birdie.
As a result, Im Seong-jae, who fell behind in a tie for 151st, was in a position to worry about passing the cut.
This is a disappointing result for Lim Seong-jae, who recently won the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Tour Woori Financial Championship by 5 strokes.
It seems that the failure to adjust the condition due to the forced march to and from Korea and the United States caught the ankle.
Other Korean players also performed sluggishly. Kim Joo-hyung tied for 63rd with Lee Gyeong-hoon and Kim Si-woo with a 3-over par 73 strokes.
Yang Yong-eun, the winner of this event in 2009, tied for 117th with April Masters winner Yon Ram (Spain) and others with a 6-over par 76 strokes.
The leader on the first day of the tournament was Eric Cole (USA) who hit 5 under par. He is an unknown who debuted on the PGA Tour in the 2022-2023 season.
The runner-up at the PGA Tour Honda Classic in February this year is his personal best.
Bryson DeChambeau (USA) of the LIV series is in second place by one stroke alone with a 4 under par 66 strokes.
Scotty Scheffler (USA) of the PGA Tour and Dustin Johnson (USA) of LIV tied for third place with a 3 under par 67 strokes.
Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is tied for 27th (1 over par 71 strokes).
Meanwhile, some players could not finish the first round due to bad weather.
