Kim Si-woo (left) is on the hunt for a second win in the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour season, surpassing Yon Ram (right, Spain), who is aiming for world No. 1.

It is at the PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open (total prize money of $8.7 million), which opens on the 26th (Korean time) at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, USA. The first and second rounds of this tournament are played on the Torrey Pines South Course (par 72, 7765 yards) and North Course (par 72, 7258 yards), and the third and fourth rounds are played on the South Course.

Kim Si-woo, who won the Sony Open, which ended in Hawaii on the 16th, is the Korean player who is receiving the most attention in this tournament. Including the Sony Open, the Wyndham Championship in August 2016, the Players Championship in May 2017, and the American Express in January 2021, he achieved four wins on the tour. 메이저사이트

The atmosphere for the challenge for the second win of the season is not bad. Kim Si-woo is ranked 13th in the power rankings in this tournament. Last week, he tied for 22nd in the American Express, showing a decent shot.

Siwoo Kim’s competitor is Ram, who has shown a strong side at Torrey Pines. Ram, who ranks first in the power rankings, has never missed a place in the top 10 for the past four years, from 2019 to last year, following his victory in this competition in 2017. The momentum has been steep this year. He lifted the championship trophy at this year’s opening match, the Sentry Tournament of Champions and American Express. He also won the top twice in DP World Tour events, such as the Spanish Open in October last year and the Tour Championship in December. In this tournament, even if Ram takes 3rd place, he will rise to the top of the world rankings.

Other Korean players include Lim Seong-jae and Ahn Byeong-hun, and Kim Seong-hyun and Noh Seung-yeol, who unfortunately missed the cut in last week’s tournament. Kim Joo-hyung, who tied for 6th place in the previous competition, American Express, and was in the third ‘Top 10’ of the season, is absent to prepare for the PIF Saudi International, the opening game of the Asian Tour 2023 season held in Saudi Arabia in early February.
