Kim Joo-hyung, Lim Seong-jae, Kim Si-woo, Lee Gyeong-hoon, and Kim Seong-hyeon also participated.

Scotty Scheffler (USA), world number one in men’s golf, is attempting to win his 5th title of the season.

Schaeffler will participate in the PGA Tour Charles Schwab Challenge (total prize money of $9.1 million), which will be held at the Colonial Country Club (par 70) in Fort Worth, Texas, for four days starting on the 24th (Korean time).

Schaeffler, who has already won four major championships this year, including the Masters, and is ranked first in prize money, the FedEx Cup rankings, and the world rankings without any competition, is the strongest candidate to win this tournament as well.

The Charles Schwab Challenge is not a specially designated competition with a total prize of $20 million, but a general competition, so many top players do not participate.

However, Schaeffler, who grew up in Texas and still lives there, always attends competitions held in Texas.

One of the three competitions that Schaeffler, who has participated 11 times this year, participated in even though it is not a major or specially designated competition is the Texas Children’s Houston Open in March.

In the 11 competitions that Schaeffler participated in this year, it placed in the top 10 10 times, including 4 wins, runner-up once, and 3rd place once.

The worst performance was tied for 17th place at American Express in February.

From the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to the PGA Championship, which ended on the 19th, he entered the top 10 in 9 consecutive competitions.

At the PGA Championship, he was arrested by the police ahead of the second round and released after having his mug shot taken. In the third round, he showed his potential by tying for 8th place even in extremely chaotic situations, such as having to use a temporary caddy as his dedicated caddy was going to his daughter’s graduation ceremony.

Tiger Woods (USA) praised Scheffler’s performance, saying, “If you putt well, you win. If you putt poorly, you top 10.”

Schaeffler has both disappointment and confidence, as he tied for third place last year and finished second after overtime in 2022 in the Charles Schwab Challenge.

This tournament is not a special tournament, and is held following the PGA Championship, a major tournament, so many top players are missing, but the number of players participating is not bad.

In addition to Schaeffler, world rankings include 9th ranked Collin Morikawa (USA), 10th ranked Max Homa (USA), and 11th ranked Brian Harman (USA).

Morikawa is a strong competitor who will block Schaeffler’s five wins.

20th-ranked Keegan Bradley (USA), Jordan Spieth, who has won this competition, and Tony Finau (USA) are also subject to caution.

Since there are not many top players, I am also looking forward to the performance of Korean players.

Kim Joo-hyung, who tied for 26th place at the PGA Championship and showed signs of escaping from his slump, is participating in this tournament for the first time since entering the PGA Tour. Kim Joo-hyung’s house is close to the competition course.

Seongjae Lim and Siwoo Kim also entered the contest hoping to win their first championship.

Lee Gyeong-hoon and Kim Seong-hyeon were also named to the list of participating players.

Since many top players are missing, it is worth competing for the championship.

Emiliano Grillo (Argentina) will defend his title. 스포츠토토
