The 18th hole of the final 4th round of the Korea Professional Golf (KPGA) Korean Tour Woori Financial Championship held at the Ferrum Club in Yeoju-si, Gyeonggi-do on the 14th. Lim Seong-jae (25), who was co-leader, hit the second shot and fell into the bunker in front of the green. According to the record, the distance from the bunker to the pin was 38m, but Lim Seong-jae calculated it as 50m and hit a bunker shot with a pitching wedge to put the ball 2m inside the hole. Im Seong-jae, who put this birdie putt, won a thrilling come-from-behind victory with a ‘finish birdie’.
Lim Seong-jae, who won the championship by overcoming a 5-stroke margin, showed off his world-class performance. In particular, the 50m bunker shot on the last hole in a very tense situation really made me realize Im Seong-jae’s class once again. Normally, I would grab a sand wedge in this situation, but Seongjae Lim brought out Titleist’s SM9 48 degree wedge, which he uses as a pitching wedge. The 50m bunker shot is the most difficult distance on the PGA Tour. However, Im Seong-jae is strong against bunker shots, ranking 6th in the bunker save rate (64.20%) on the PGA Tour this season. It is said that he practiced a lot of obscure street bunker practice even in the United States. The result was a great success.
Regarding this situation, Lim Seong-jae said, “The longer the club, the longer the distance even if it is hit thickly, so it is better to hit a bunker shot with a longer club than the distance. He also said that if he made a bunker shot with a sand wedge, he had to hit the pin accurately, but it was difficult because it was a tense situation. So he hit a bunker shot with his pitching wedge. He thought of putting it within five shots, and he shot with a pitching wedge, but surprisingly it stuck very well,” he explained.토스카지노
On this day, Im Seong-jae created several famous scenes. He was able to compete for the championship with Eagle on the 12th hole (par 5), but he was contemplating between choosing a hybrid and 3-wood club with 250m left from the rough to the pin on hole 12. blown The ball landed in front of the green and rolled to the side of the hole 3m away.
Im Seong-jae shows strength in wood and hybrid shots to the extent that he ranks first in the 225-250 yard rough shot index on the PGA Tour this season. Here, with a 3m eagle putt, he tied for second place by a stroke and created the driving force for the championship.
Seongjae Lim uses Titleist products for everything from drivers to putters and balls. I used Titleist TSR2 drivers (9 degrees), TS3 fairway woods (15 degrees), and 818 H2 hybrids (19 degrees) for this win, and put T100 3-9 irons in the bag. The wedge consisted of SM9 48/54 degrees and SM7 60 degrees. The putter is Scotty Cameron’s Flowback 5 CS Tour type, and the ball is Pro V1x.
