South Korea celebrates in huge format at the 2022 Wyndham Championship, the last tournament of the PGA Tour that precedes the FedEx Cup with its three playoff events (excluding those who will not be there because, having entered LIV Golf, they are off the circuit American at present).
Joohyung Kim, results
At the age of twenty, Joohyung Kim won his first career PGA Tour tournament, the Wyndham Championship 2022, and confirms the good news of him already on the lower level circuits. He also becomes the third youngest to enter the OWGR top 20 since it was established: only Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy have done better than him.
The good conclusion of the third round, suspended yesterday and resumed in the early Italian afternoon, and the majestic -9 of the last with a frightening -8 in the first 9 holes do the rest: -20 overall for a player we will certainly hear about .
The second position is the best known of South Koreans, Sungjae Im, who by virtue of his -15 (ends with the American John Huh) enters tenth in the playoffs of the FedEx Cup. A real jubilation that comes from Asia, in short, with men with more opposite destinies that cannot be imagined.
Fourth position for Ben Griffin, who with -14 goes ahead of Taylor Moore, Russell Henley and the rather surprising Max McGreevy, who finish at -13. The round of 16 is more varied, including only two USA at -12, Chesson Hadley and a waning Brandon Wu; with them the English Tyrrell Hatton, the Indian Anirban Lahiri and the Australian Cameron Percy.
Im Sung-jae (born March 30, 1998 in Jeju) is a South Korean professional golfer who plays on the American PGA Tour. He came close to his first PGA Tour win at the Sanderson Farms Championship, but lost a playoff to Colombian Sebastián Muñoz.
On March 1, 2020, he won his first PGA Tour win at The Honda Classic at PGA National Golf Club. During the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, which were held in 2021, he was number 22.
