On the last day, I overturned the 7th car… Yon Lam’s ‘New Year’s first band electrode’
In professional golf, when the final round begins, the second place, 7 strokes behind, lifts the championship cup, which is a rare event that may or may not occur once a year. Last year, only Sam Burns (27, USA), who won the Charles Schwab Challenge in May, came out with a reverse lead by 7 strokes.
Yon Ram (29, Spain, photo) did this difficult thing. On the 9th (Korean time), the United States Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions (total prize money of $15 million) held at the Kapalua Plantation Course (par 73, 7596 yards) in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii, USA, took the lead in the final 4 rounds. Ram, who started the game 7 strokes behind, defeated lead Colin Morikawa (26, USA) by 2 strokes.
On this day, Ram tied 1 eagle, 9 birdies and 1 bogey to hit 10 under par 63. Final total 27 under par 265 strokes. He added a win in 8 months after the Mexico Open in May last year, and reported his 8th win in his tour career. The winning prize is 2.7 million dollars (approximately 3.3 billion won).토토사이트
The largest margin of victory in PGA Tour history is 10 strokes. It came out in 1999 when Paul Laurie (54, Scotland) defeated Jean-Van de Velde (57, France) in the final round of the Open in Carnoustie, Scotland. The reverse lead by 9 strokes was achieved by Stuart Sink (50, USA) at the 2004 MCI Heritage Competition. There have been several reverses by 8 strokes, but recently, Justin Rose (43, England) did it at the 2017 World Golf Championship (WGC) HSBC Champions.
At the beginning of the game, when Morikawa took a 7 stroke lead in 2nd place with a birdie on the 6th hole (par 4), no one predicted that Ram would win. However, after that, Ram put pressure on Morikawa by catching an eagle in the 15th hole (par 5) with consecutive birdies in the 12th to 14th holes. On the other hand, Morikawa, who had never committed a bogey until the third round, collapsed by finishing holes 14 through 16 with three consecutive bogeys. Ram hit a wedge with a birdie on the 18th hole (par 5).
‘Nike Man’ Kim Joo-hyung (21) was listed in the top 5 from the first tournament of the new year. On this day, he cut 5 strokes and finished the tournament in a tie for 5th with a final total of 22 under par 270 strokes. Kim Joo-hyung recently signed a sponsorship contract with Nike under the condition of ‘5 years 20 million dollars + α’. Lee Gyeong-hoon (32) tied for 7th (21 under par, 271 strokes), and Lim Seong-jae (25) tied for 13th (19 under par, 273 strokes). The PGA Tour continues on the 12th with the Sony Open in Honolulu, Hawaii.
