This is the potential of Tiger Woods (USA), the ‘Emperor of Golf’.
On the 18th (local time), Woods won the Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars) of the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour “Exclusive Match” held at the Riviera Country Club (par 71, 7322 yards) in Palisades, near Los Angeles메이저놀이터, California, USA. In the round, he shot a 4-under-par 67 strokes to rise to a tie for 26th (3-under 210 strokes). World ranking 3rd place Jon Lam (Spain) leads (15 under par 198 strokes), Max Homa (USA) 2nd place (12 under par 201 strokes), and Keith Mitchell (above USA) is 3rd place (11 under par 202 strokes).
Woods tied 1 eagle, 3 birdies and 1 bogey. He got off to a good start with a birdie on the 10th hole (par 4), his first hole, and caught a birdie on the 14th hole (par 3) to reduce my 2 strokes in the first half. In the second half, the Eagle on the 1st hole (par 5) and the birdie on the 5th hole (par 4) made a splash. However, the brake was applied while forgetting one stroke in the 7th hole (par 4). Woods, who returned to the field 7 months after the Open in July of last year, was only 3 strokes away from the tied 10th place group, increasing the possibility of entering the ‘Top 10’.
Ram caught 6 birdies without bogey and occupied the top of the leaderboard. It is the 3rd win of the season and the 10th win in total after winning the Sentry Tournament of Champions and American Express last month. Patrick Cantlay 4th (10 under par 203 strokes), Gary Woodland 5th (9 under par 204 strokes), and Colin Morikawa (above USA) tied for 6th place (8 under par 205 strokes). World No. 1 Scotty Scheffler (USA) is tied for 15th (5 under par, 208 strokes), and world No. 2 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is competing for strength at a tie for 18th (4 under par, 209 strokes).
Kim Joo-hyung, ranked 15th in the world, wrote down 1 eagle, 2 birdies and 3 bogeys. The best performance among Korean players is a tie for 45th (1 under par 212 strokes). Im Seong-jae, the ‘new groom’, poured out 5 bogeys with 2 birdies. He lost three strokes and fell to tied for 45th. Newcomer Kim Seong-hyun exchanged 5 birdies and 5 bogeys. He finished tied for 55th (even par 213).
