Yon Ram, 3 consecutive wins at the Insurance Open, which opens on the 26th… Lim Seong-jae, etc.
World No. 3 Jon Ram (Spain), who succeeded in winning two consecutive victories by lifting the championship trophy on the PGA Tour American Express, will challenge for three consecutive victories.
Ram will participate in the Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of $8.7 million) to be held at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, USA from the 26th (hereinafter Korean time).
The first and second rounds of the tournament will be held on the Torrey Pines South Course (par 72, 7765 yards) and North Course (par 72, 7258 yards), followed by the third and fourth rounds on the South Course.
Among the players, Ram stands out the most. Rahm has lifted the trophy in both tour matches in the new year.
On the last day of the Sentry Tournament of Champions held in Hawaii three weeks ago, Ram drove a whopping 10 under par to win the come-from-behind victory.
In the American Express, which ended on the 23rd, he won two consecutive victories by beating Davis Thompson (USA) by one stroke.
Ram, who is aiming for a third consecutive win, is showing a particularly strong side at Torrey Pines, the course of this tournament.
He won his first professional win at this event in 2017 and finished in the top 10 at both Insurance Opens from 2019 to last year.
In the US Open held on this course in 2021, he succeeded in winning the first major in his life and established himself as a strong player against Torrey Pines.
Ram, who finished 2022 at 5th in the world rankings, has already won 2 wins in the season and rises to 3rd place. If he maintains his upward trend in this tournament, he can take a step closer to first place.
Candidates to stop Rahm’s three-game winning streak include Zander Shuffle (6th), Will Zalatoris (7th), Colin Morikawa (8th), and Justin Thomas (9th).
In particular, Morikawa is trying to repay the debt of the come-from-behind defeat to Ram at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in this tournament. 메이저놀이터

Among them, Lim Seong-jae has memories of finishing 6th at the Insurance Open last year, so good results are expected this year as well.
Meanwhile, during this period, the DP World Tour Hero Dubai Desert Classic (total prize money of 9 million dollars) will be held in Dubai, UAE.
Current ranking No. 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) will participate in this event. In addition, a large number of players from the LIV series sponsored by Saudi Arabia will participate.
