The PGA Championship will be held at Oak Hill Country Club (par 70) in Rochester, New York, USA for four days from the 18th (Korean time). It is the second major tournament of the season following the Masters Tournament last April, and a total of 156 top players compete for the championship.
The PGA Tour players and LIV players, who faced off for the first time this year at the Masters, will clash again this time. At the Masters, on the final day of the tournament, PGA Tour’s Jon Ram (Spain) and LIV’s Brooks Koepka (USA) competed for the championship, and Ram won the championship and kept his pride. However, LIV’s Koepka and Phil Mickelson (USA) tied for 2nd place, and Patrick Reed (USA) also took 4th place.
In this tournament, on the PGA Tour, ‘troikas’ such as Ram, Scotty Scheffler (USA), and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) will come to the fore, and in LIV, Koepka, Mickelson, and Reed will face off. In addition to them, ‘defending champion’ Justin Thomas (USA) is aiming for his third championship in the tournament, and Jordan Spieth (USA) will achieve the ‘Career Grand Slam’ if he wins this tournament.
Korean players are also expected to do well. Five players including Lim Seong-jae, Kim Si-woo, Kim Joo-hyung, Lee Gyeong-hoon and Yang Yong-eun will participate in this competition. Yang Yong-eun, who won the tournament in 2009, is the only Korean player to have won a major tournament on the PGA Tour.
