Kim Joo-hyung (21) broke his personal best in the world rankings. It was ranked 13th, a step up from 14th last week.
The men’s golf world rankings were updated on the 23rd (Korean time). Among the Korean players, Kim Joo-hyung’s ranking change was the most noticeable. The 13th place in the world is Kim Joo-hyung’s personal best world ranking. Kim Joo-hyung’s previous personal best ranking was 14th.
The reason Kim Joo-hyung was able to raise the world rankings was because he finished tied for 6th at the PGA American Express, which ended just before his world rankings were announced. Kim Joo-hyung, who was sluggish on the first day of the tournament, swung a hard hit that reduced 10 strokes on the second day, and continued his momentum in the 3rd and 4th rounds to finish in a tie for 6th place. Third top 10 of the season. 스포츠토토
Attention is focusing on how far Kim Joo-hyung’s rise will continue. As a Korean male golfer, he is challenging to enter the world top 10 for the second time ever. ‘Korean golf legend’ Choi Gyeong-ju (53) was the only Korean player to have ever ranked in the top 10. Choi Kyung-ju became the first Asian player to rise to the top 5.
Im Seong-jae (25) maintained 19th place, Lee Gyeong-hoon (32) maintained 36th place, and Kim Si-woo (28) rose to 40th place.
There have been some changes to the world top 5. Cameron Smith (Australia) fell to 4th as John Rahm (Spain), who won the American Express, rose to 3rd in the world. Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Scotty Scheffler (USA) kept first and second places, and Patrick Cantlay (USA) also maintained fifth place.
