2019년 시즌에서 주목할 선수

2019년 시즌 첫대회인 세이프 웨이오픈 마지막날 라운딩을 마친후  임성재는 “PGA 투어 시즌 첫번째 골프대회에서 챔피언조로 라운딩을 하면서 TV에서 만나던  최고기량의 선수들과 대회를 해서 많은것을 배웠다.”

“퍼팅이나 샷 감각을 좀 익히고 PGA투어대회를 한다면 다음부터는 편하게 칠수 있다.충분히 유명선수들과 시합해도 잘할수 있을것이다.”라고 말하고 ”어려서 부터  TV에서 봤던 스네데커와의 경기는 시합을 했다기보다 골프를 배운 하루였다.”라고 말했다.이어 임성재는”바람이 많이 불어서 첫번째 두홀에서 보기를 범하며  망가졌지만 후반에 이를 복구하고 평상심을 찿아 경기를 마칠수 있었다.”

올해 투어 첫해인데 잘해서 한국팬이나 모든 분들께 이름을 알리고 열심히 하는 모습 보여드리고 싶다는 20살의 선수이다

임성재는 1년전 PGA 2부투어인 웹닷컴에 들어와 활동하면서 상금랭킹 1위로 2019년 PGA투어 카드를  받았다.

임성재는 18일 제주 서귀포의 클럽 나인 브릿지에서 웹닷컴투어 올해의 선수상과 신인상을 수상했다.  CJ 나인브릿지 대회장에서 웹닷컴 최연소로 잭 니클라우스상(올해의 선수상)을 수상했고 신인상까지 거머쥐면서 상금왕 포함 3관왕의 영예를 안았다.
임성재는 지난 시즌 웹닷컴투어에서 개막전인 바하마 그레이트 엑수마 클래식과 정규시즌 최종전인 윈코푸드 포틀랜드 오픈에서도 우승하면서 시즌 2승을 달성했다. 투어 역사상 처음으로 한 번도 정규시즌 상금랭킹 1위 자리를 놓치지 않았다.

올해 투어 에서 열심히 대회에 임해 100위 안에 들어가는것이 소박한 목표라고 말하는 임성재는 이미 전세계 골프전문기자와 팬들로 부터 올해 주목할 선수로 꼽았다.

Players to Watch during 2019 Season

Rookie Sungjae Im makes a great impression during first event of the season

After the final round of Safeway Open, the first event of 2019 season, Sungjae Im said, “I was able to play with the championship group on my first PGA Tour event of 2019 season, and I learned a lot by playing with the best, whom I’ve seen on TV.”

Im added, “if I can learn to adapt my putting and driving feels a bit more, I think I will be more comfortable playing in PGA Tour event. I think I can hang with the most famous players. I got to play with Snedeker, whom I’ve seen on TV from young age, and I feel like I’ve learned from him rather than played against him.” On his play, Im commented, “Because of the gusting wind, I committed bogeys on first two holes, and I collapsed. But I was able to recover on back nine, relax a bit and finish strong.”

This is his first season on Tour, but the 20-year-old says he wants to make a name for himself and also impress his fans in Korea.

Last year, he came into PGA tour (secondary tour) and he ranked first on the season money list, which qualified him for the 2019 season.

On the 18th, he received the Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year award for tour in Jeju Island of Korea, at Club Nine Bridge. He was the youngest to win Jack Nicklaus award (the Player of the Year) ever, and he also gained Rookie award on top of the Money list, winning him the trifecta at the CJ Nine Bridge tournament.

During last season on Tour, Im won the opener at Bahama Great Exuma Classic and the last event of regular season at Winco Food Portland Open, winning 2 events in total. As a first in the Tour’s history, he never lost the number one ranking on the money list.

He has a modest goal for himself: he says that he will play hard on the PGA Tour and hopes to rank within top 100. But for many within the golf media and the fandom, Im is already on the watchlist.
