Kim Joo-hyung pushes out Spieth and ranks 14th in the world

Rise to the limit…

Thanks to a tie for 5th in the Sentry Champions, the highest ever ranking

, Kim Joo- hyung (pictured) moved up one notch from Jordan Spieth (USA) in the golf world rankings.

In the men’s golf world rankings announced on the 9th (Korean time), Kim Joo-hyung’s average ranking point was 4.3093, beating Spieth (4.2859) and ranked 14th, up one notch from last week. It is their highest ranking ever.

Kim Joo-hyung’s average ranking points are still far from No. 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland, 8.5058). However, it is the only ranking change within the top 15. Kim Joo-hyung’s rise in the world rankings is thanks to his tie for fifth place at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first tournament of the PGA Tour in 2023. This tournament is the first schedule of a special event newly introduced by the PGA Tour this year. It has the character of a ‘King of Kings’ event, in which only the winners of the previous year’s PGA Tour and top ranking players in the FedEx Cup were invited. The total prize money has also been raised by nearly doubling to 15 million dollars (about 18.675 billion won).

Joo-hyung Kim is the PGA Tour player with the greatest interest in the United States ahead of 2023. He is expected so much that Nike, a world-renowned sporting goods company, decided to sponsor him with a huge amount starting this year. As a result, attention is drawn to whether it will be possible to rewrite the highest ranking of Korean players in the men’s golf world rankings. The highest ranking in men’s golf by a Korean player ever was Choi Kyung-joo’s 5th in March 2008. 토토사이트

In this week’s world rankings, Lim Seong-jae maintained his 19th place, while Lee Kyung-hoon moved up two notches to 36th. Kim Si-woo, who did not participate in the Sentry Tournament of Champions, fell two places to 84th. Kim Si-woo starts the new year with the Sony Open (total prize money of 7.9 million dollars), which opens on the 12th.

In the women’s golf world rankings, there is no change in the rankings of major players due to the effect that the LPGA tour has not started a new season. Korean New Zealander Lydia Ko maintained first place, Jinyoung Koh ranked fifth, Inji Jeon ranked eighth, and Hyojoo Kim ranked ninth in the top 10.
