Asian Games, Medal Hopeful Seong-jae Lim

Asia's first PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, a men's golf star who advanced to the PO final for five consecutive years and failed to receive a medal at the Tokyo Olympics... In AG, ‘Two crown winners’

Lim Seong-jae (25), a leading figure in Korean men's golf who plays on the PGA Tour, is challenging the title of 'Asian Games gold medalist'. 

As soon as Seongjae Lim debuted on the PGA 2nd Division Tour (now Korn Ferry Tour) in 2018, he swept the Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards and also won the prize money, showing his presence early on as a player who will play a key role in Korean men's golf.

Even after debuting on the PGA Tour in the 2018-2019 season, he is a player who has taken center stage in the ‘Korean Brothers’ with his consistent skills.

Although he did not win in his debut season on the PGA Tour, he showed stable performance enough to be the only rookie to advance to the 
Tour Championship, the final round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs (PO), and was the first Asian player to be named Rookie of the Year.

He gained momentum for growth with his first win on the PGA Tour at the Honda Classic in March 2020, and has two wins in total until the Shriners Children's Open in October of the following year.

In the 2022-2023 PGA Tour season, which ended at the end of last month, he was unable to add a number of wins, but performed well by participating in 30 competitions and ranking in the top 10 9 times.
This is the highest number of top 10 entries in a single season, the same as last season.

When expanded to within the top 25, there are 18 competitions, the most since the PGA Tour debut.

The FedEx Cup ranking, which is determined by the results of the Tour Championship, dropped from 2nd last season to 24th this season, but the prize money was $6,487,421 (about 8.6 billion won), the largest amount earned since the PGA Tour debut, making it a sufficiently successful season.

It is worth evaluating.

In particular, Seongjae Lim has participated in the Tour Championship for five consecutive years until this season, further solidifying his position as a top PGA Tour player in name and reality.

The Tour Championship is a tournament in which only players ranked in the top 30 of the FedEx Cup points ranking, which converts one season's performance on the PGA Tour into points, participate and compete for bonus prize money.

Participation itself means demonstrating top-level skills on the PGA Tour in that season.

Seong-jae Lim holds the record for the most appearances in the Korean Tour Championship.

All that remains for Lim Seong-jae, who is concentrating on final preparations for the Asian Games after a short break after the Tour Championship, is to let go of the burden.

Two years ago, he had the opportunity to wear the Taegeuk flag at the Tokyo Olympics, but Lim Seong-jae finished in a tie for 22nd and failed to advance to the medals.

Although he overcame fierce competition and even won the PGA Tour, which is called the 'dream stage' 
for golf players, he was unable to shake off the tension that was different from the tour competition given by the Olympics, the largest event in international sports that occurs only once every four years.

Seongjae Lim, who used his Tokyo experience as medicine, is confident that this time will be different.

There can be no such thing as an 'easy competition' for an athlete, but it cannot be denied that the competition in the 
Asian Games is much less intense than in the Olympics, where many of the world's top professional athletes participate.

Seongjae Lim, currently ranked 27th in the world, is the highest ranked player participating in this Asian Games.

Among male players from other countries, it is difficult to find many players active in top tours such as the PGA Tour or DP World Tour.

Lim Seong-jae's performance, who will lead the men's national team, is expected to play a decisive role in the 'Asian Games gold revival' of Korean golf.

Korea was the strongest country, dominating four gold medals in golf at the 2006 Doha and 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, but only one gold medal at Incheon 2014, and a disappointing result of 'no gold' at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games in 20 years. left behind

Incheon's one gold medal came from the women's individual event (Park Gyeol), and there has been no gold medal in the men's event since the Guangzhou Games.

This year, with the door open to professional players, Im Seong-jae and Kim Si-woo, who are active on the PGA Tour, participated together, and Jo Woo-young and 
Jang Yu-bin, who won the participation rights allocated to amateur players, swept the team event as they proved their competitiveness by winning consecutive wins in recent domestic professional competitions.

It's also worth a look.
