Lim Seong-jae (25) jumped into a tie for fourth place in the third round of the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of $8.7 million) with an exciting bunker shot eagle.
On the 28th (Korean time), on the 3rd day of the tournament held at Torrey Pines Golf Club South Course (par 72) in San Diego, California, U.S., Lim Seong-jae hit 5 under par 67 with 1 eagle, 4 birdies and 1 bogey. Im Seong-jae, who recorded a total of 7 under par 209 strokes over three days, started the final round on the 29th in a tie for 4th with Colin Morikawa (USA) and others.
Lim Seong-jae, who was tied for 24th until the second round the previous day, raised his ranking by catching a pleasant eagle on the last hole 18 (par 5). Im Seong-jae’s second shot went into the bunker around the green, but the shot from the bunker went straight into the hole, reducing two strokes at once. Lim Seong-jae, who was in 10th place until the 17th hole, also ranked 4th. 토토사이트
While Sam Ryder (USA), who scored 12 under par 204, maintained the lead for three days in a row, Jon Rahm (Spain) is chasing second place by two strokes alone. Ram won both of the two competitions she participated in this year, and if she reaches the top in this competition, she will win three victories in January alone.
Ram won the 2017 tournament held at Torrey Pines and the 2021 US Open, and in line with the recent rise, he was designated as a strong candidate for the championship even before the opening.
He was tied for 116th with 1 over par on the first day, but in the second round he reduced 5 strokes and climbed to 14th, and on this day he hit 6 under par and jumped into the competition for the championship. Ram, who is currently world number 3, will become world number 1 next week if she wins this tournament.
In the case of a solo second place, we have to see the results of Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), who is currently world number one, who is participating in the DP World Tour Hero Dubai Desert Classic (total prize money of 9 million dollars) being held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) during the same period.
If Rahm finishes second alone in this competition, McIlroy must perform worse than third place alone in the UAE competition to become world number one. Also, if Rahm finishes in third place alone, McIlroy must rank below 27th in order for Rahm to become world No. 1.
Tony Finau (USA) is in third place with an 8 under par 208 strokes. Rookie Kim Seong-hyeon (25) cut 3 strokes and finished 8th with 6 under par and 210 strokes, while Ahn Byeong-hoon (32) reduced 1 stroke after making two double bogeys to place 5 under par and 211 strokes, tied for 9th place.
