‘New groom’ Lim Seong-jae’s breathing.
Lim Seong-jae failed to reduce the number of strokes in the third round of the PGA Tour Arnold Palmer Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars), which continued at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72, 7466 yards) in Orlando, Florida, on the 5th (Korean time). He stayed in a tie for 19th (2 under par 214 strokes). Kurt Kitayama in the lead (9 under par 207 strokes), defending champions Scotty Scheffler (above USA) and Viktor Hovlan (Norway) are fighting fiercely for the joint 2nd place (8 under par 208 strokes).
Lim Seong-jae started in a tie for 20th place by 7 strokes. In 11 holes, he committed 2 birdies, 2 bogeys, and 1 double bogey, and was sluggish with 2 over par. Fortunately, he hit even par by adding two birdies on the 12th and 16th holes. He only hit 50% of the greens and rarely made birdie opportunities. The 100% bunker save was outstanding. Lim Seong-jae is only two strokes away from the tie for 10th place, so his chance to jump to the top remains.
Hovlan made a splash by driving 6 under par. It is the fourth win in the PGA Tour career in a year and four months after the World Wide Technology Championship in November 2021. Schaeffler, who is ranked second in the world, added a 4-under par to the championship race. If you succeed in winning two consecutive matches in this competition, you can become ‘Number 1’. World No. 3 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) reduced 4 strokes and jumped to a tie for 5th place (6 under par 210 strokes) by 3 strokes.
카지노 World No. 1 Yon Ram (Spain) was sluggish with a 4-over par and fell to tied for 44th (1-over par 217 strokes). In Korea, Kim Joo-hyung recorded 3 bogeys and 1 double bogey with 1 birdie. It was pushed from a tie for 20th the previous day to a tie for 59th (2 over par 218 strokes). Sony Open winner Kim Si-woo, Lee Kyung-hoon, and Kim Seong-hyun are also members of this group.
