The only opportunity in Korea to see Im Seong-jae. World ranker Lim Seong-jae will appear on the Korean stage. Lim Seong-jae, who is currently ranked 17th in the world, will participate in the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Financial Group Championship held at the Ferrum Club (par 72) in Yeoju, Gyeonggi-do for four days from the 11th of next month.
It is the first time in about 3 years and 7 months since the Genesis Championship in October 2019 that Im Seong-jae will compete in the KPGA Korean Tour. In addition, two amateur national team members who will participate in the Asian Games in Hangzhou, such as Jo Woo-young and Jang Yu-bin, will compete in good faith with Lim Seong-jae.
Cho Woo-young won the KPGA Korean Tour Golfzon Open on the 23rd as an amateur player for the first time in 10 years, and Jang Yu-bin reached the top at the Srixon Tour.
The Woori Financial Group Championship, which was founded last year and celebrates its second year this year, raised the total prize money by 200 million won to 1.5 billion won, becoming the largest prize money tournament on the KPGA Korean Tour.
There are only three tournaments with a total prize of 1.5 billion won, including the Genesis Championship and the KPGA Championship.
Meanwhile, Lim Seong-jae returned to Korea last year to participate in the Woori Financial Group Championship, but the participation was canceled due to a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) just before the tournament. 스포츠토토
