Im Seong-jae (25) pledged to do well on the PGA Tour stage this year.
Im Seong-jae will sortie for the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Sentry Tournament of Champions (total prize money of $15 million) to be held on the 6th (Korean time) at the Kapalua Plantation Course (par 73) in Maui, Hawaii, USA.
Only the winners of last year and players who competed in the Tour Championships can compete in this event.
Lim Seong-jae, who finished runner-up at last year’s Tour Championship, will face off against world-class players at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, which is a royal match.
Lim Seong-jae said he wanted to maintain his performance without injury this year.
He said, “Starting with this week’s tournament, I will be playing through to the Tour Championship, but this year’s goal is to participate in the Tour Championship as well. My goal is always to do well in major tournaments. Just like I did for the past four years, my goal is to spend this year consistently. I want to compete well in the tournament for a year without getting injured and maintaining good condition.”
Regarding participating in his third Sentry Tournament of Champions, he said, “I’ve been competing for three years. I’ve been in the top 10 for two years. I have good memories. I always feel good when I come here. The scenery is good and I like the course. Last year’s winner I want to do well this year as I did in the past two years because I will play with the players and Tour Championship players.” 안전놀이터
He said that last year’s event he missed the most was the Tour Championship.
Lim Seong-jae explained, “The tournament I regret is the Tour Championship. Finishing runner-up by one stroke is the most regretful. My goal was to be in the top 5 of the Tour Championship, and I was able to participate in the championship competition, but it was the most regrettable.”
Im Seong-jae, who got married last December, said he was more motivated.
He said, “I got married, but time seems to have passed really quickly. I was hectic during the preparation process, but I think I will start this year with a new mindset after getting married. I think it motivates me to work harder in other aspects as well. “he said.
