The Korean Brothers got off to a good start on the first day of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a special event on the PGA Tour.
The Korean players who competed in the first round of the tournament held at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72) in Orlando, Florida, USA on the 3rd (Korean time) were placed in the middle ranks.
Among the six Korean players, Lee Kyung-hoon (32) recorded the best score, tied for 23rd with 2 under par. Lee Gyeong-hoon reduced two strokes with three birdies and one bogey. Kim Si-woo (28) and Lim Seong-jae (25) followed with a tie for 35th place at 1 under par. Kim Si-woo caught 4 birdies, but lost a lot of strokes due to a double bogey on the 9th hole (par 4), and had to be content with writing down 1 under par by making a bogey on the 10th hole. Im Seong-jae recorded 3 birdies and 2 bogeys.
Kim Joo-hyung (21) and Kim Seong-hyeon (25) hit even par side by side and were ranked tied for 50th. Kim Joo-hyung made a bogey from the first hole and did not lose the number of strokes despite poor condition that day, raising hopes for the second round. Seong-Hyun Kim seemed to be continuing her upward trend by recording a birdie on the first hole of the second half after reducing one stroke in the first half. However, after immediately losing one stroke in the 11th hole (par 4), he also wrote down a bogey in the 15th hole (par 4) and finished the first round with an even par.
Ahn Byeong-hoon (32) tied for 93rd with a 3-over par, recording the worst performance among Korean players. Ahn Byeong-hun, who did not lose at bats in the first half, only made one birdie in the second half, but committed three bogeys and finished the game with a 3-over par. 메이저사이트
Kim Joo-hyung, Kim Seong-hyun, and Ahn Byeong-hoon, who performed below expectations on the first day of the tournament, need a reversal of the atmosphere in order to pass the cut. In particular, if Byeong-hun Ahn fails to significantly reduce the number of strokes in the second round, advancing to the final round will be difficult.
World No. 1 Yon Lam (Spain)’s strong wind is continuing in this tournament as well. With a 7-under par, Ram beat the tied-second group by two strokes and took the lead alone. Ram, who recently won 3 wins of the season at the Genesis Invitational and succeeded in recapturing the world No. 1, has been on the top of the leaderboard since the first day of this tournament and has begun to solidify the world No. 1.
World No. 2 Scotty Scheffler (USA) tied for 5th with a 4-under par, and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), who ranked 3rd in the world, tied for 68th with a 1-over par.
Can the Korean Brothers succeed in passing the power cut? JTBC Golf & Sports will broadcast the second round of the tournament live from 4 am on the 4th.
