After the 134th appearance… World No. 80 Clark ‘First PGA Championship’

Lim Seong-jae (25) 먹튀검증and Lee Kyung-hoon (32) tied for 8th at the Wells Fargo Championship, a “special tournament” on the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour has created several special tournaments with a total prize money of more than 20 million dollars (approximately 26.4 billion won) this season to compete with LIV Golf, which was founded with Saudi Arabian capital last year, and the Wells Fargo Championship is one of them.

In the final 4th round of the tournament, which ended on the 8th at the Quail Hallo Club (par 71) in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, Lim Seong-jae shot a 1-over-par 72 for a final total of 9-under 275. Lim Seong-jae, who was expected to compete for the lead by tying for 5th place until the 3rd round, caught an eagle and 3 birdies that day, but recorded 4 bogeys and 1 double bogey and eventually lost a stroke. However, Lim Seong-jae has been in the top 10 for three consecutive competitions following last month’s RBC Heritage (joint 7th) and Zurich Classic (6th). This is the 7th top 10 this season. Im Seong-jae, who finished the tournament, will immediately return to Korea and participate in the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship, which will be held at the Ferrum Club in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province from the 11th.

Lee Gyeong-hoon, who was tied for 20th until the third round, reduced three strokes with three birdies and no bogey in the final round to rise to the tie for eighth place. Lee Kyung-hoon, who made his 3rd top 10 this season, picked up his pace ahead of the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson, which starts on the 11th at TPC Craig Ranch, Texas, USA. Lee Kyung-hoon, who won two PGA Tour victories last year and the previous year at AT&T Byron Nelson, is challenging for a third consecutive victory.

The Wells Fargo Championship was won by Wyndham Clark (30, USA), who ranked 80th in the world. Clark recorded a final total of 19 under par 265 strokes, beating 2nd place Zander Shopley (USA, 15 under par 269 strokes) by 4 strokes. Clarke, who won her first victory in her 134th PGA Tour event, took home 3.6 million dollars (approximately 4.75 billion won) in prize money.

Clark, who started the 4th round with a two-stroke lead, sent a tee shot to the cart road in hole 1 (par 4) and bogeyed. In the meantime, Shopley caught a series of birdies and was briefly pushed to second place. However, after tying for the lead again with a birdie on the 8th hole (par 4), he added 4 birdies in the 9 holes in the second half and lifted the championship trophy.
