“I endured with my mental strength”… ‘Wolcle’ Seong-jae Lim, now trying to win a major championship

Im Seong-jae, who proved his ‘world class’ by winning a come-from-behind victory by 5 strokes, is now aiming to win a major tournament.

Im Seong-jae reached the top at the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Finance Championship (total prize money of 800 million won) held at the Ferrum Club (par 72) in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 14th.

Even before the start of the tournament, Lim Seong-jae drew a lot of attention. Even in the first round, 1,834 galleries gathered. On weekends, the number increased, bringing the total number of galleries to 20,148. This is the highest number of galleries among the KPGA-sponsored tournaments held this year.

Lim Seong-jae boasted stable performance despite various homework such as jet lag and adaptation to the Korean turf. However, it seemed that the victory was far from over. Even in the third round, he was tied for 4th place, 5 strokes behind Choi Jin-ho, the sole leader.

However, as soon as the final round began, he joined the championship race at once. In particular, the 12th hole (par 5) eagle was the starting point. The tee shot fell into the rough, but Lim Seong-jae aimed for a two-on. After careful club selection, he made proper contact with the ball that seemed to be submerged in the grass, put the ball on the green, and finished with a one-putt to eagle.

On the last hole, the bunker shot shone. In the 18th hole (par 5), the second shot went into the bunker around the green. Im Seong-jae made a birdie by putting the ball 1.5m away from the hole with a skillful bunker shot.

He entered a domestic competition 3 years and 7 months after the Genesis Championship in October 2019 and greeted domestic fans with another victory. Im Seong-jae said, “I have endured with mental strength for four days. When I made an eagle on the 12th hole, I thought I could compete for the championship. From then on, I knew that I was one stroke behind the lead. I thought that the game would come out on the last hole. It was not good, but I was able to make a perfect third shot and make a birdie.”

He is scheduled to leave Korea on the 15th and participate in the major tournament, the PGA Championship. Im Seong-jae said, “I want to get good results at the PGA Championship with the winning spirit. When I go back to the United States, I think I will have to adjust to the time difference again.” Until then, I want to remain as the best player in Korea.”카지노사이트
