Bae Sang-moon, will he revive at the tournament he won 10 years ago… Lee Kyung-hoon challenges 3 consecutive wins

 Bae Sang-moon (36) will make a comeback in the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour AT&T Byron Nelson (total prize money of 9.5 million dollars).

Bae Sang-moon got a chance to participate in this event held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas from the 12th (Korean time) on the recommendation of a sponsor.

This competition has a deep relationship with Bae Sang-moon. He earned his first PGA Tour win at the 2013 event. Afterwards, he gained momentum and lifted the championship trophy at the Open, the opening game of the 2014-2015 season, becoming the third Korean player to win the most after Choi Gyeong-ju (8 wins) and Yang Yong-eun (2 wins). Unfortunately, Bae Sang-moon, who enlisted in the military, returned to the PGA Tour after being discharged, but has not been able to recover his former skills.

Bae Sang-moon did not have the right to participate in this tournament, but he got a chance through a sponsor’s recommendation based on his experience of winning in the past. As he is an opportunity that does not come often for Bae Sang-moon, he must finish at least in the top 10 to extend his chances to the next tournament.

Attention is focusing on whether the tie for 14th place at the DP World Tour Korea Championship held at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Songdo, Incheon two weeks ago will be a sign of revival. It is his best performance since returning to the PGA Tour after being discharged from the military.

Bae Sang-moon played under par three times during the course of four days in this tournament, which was attended by strong players from Europe. It is the first time since the Corales Puntacana Championship in September 2021 that he played 4 rounds in the last two seasons and 23 competitions he participated in this season, and achieved an under par score of 3 or more rounds. In the meantime, his performance did not improve, and he passed the cut only 5 times, which was sluggish.

The key is how much he can demonstrate on the PGA Tour stage as he regained his shot sense by participating in the DP World Tour.

Lee Gyeong-hoon (32), who won the tournament in a row in 2021 and 2022, will challenge for a third consecutive victory.

In the past 40 years, the record of three consecutive wins in a single tournament has been recorded eight times on the PGA Tour. Six of them were recorded by Tiger Woods alone. The most recent three-game losing streak has stood since Steve Stricker’s three-time winning streak at the 2011 John Deere Classic.

Lee Kyung-hoon won last year with a total of 26 under par and 262 strokes. From 2nd to a tie for 5th place, all were one stroke away.카지노사이트
