Reporter Kwon Hoon = Ahn Byeong-hun (32) lost his second top 10 chance of the season due to a shot hunting on the last day.
On the 27th (Korean time), Byeong-hun Ahn shot a 3-over par 73 in the final round of the PGA Tour Honda Classic (total prize money: $8.4 million) held at the PGA National Champion Course (par 70) in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA. .
Ahn Byeong-hoon, who was tied for 6th place the previous day and was likely to enter the top 10 for the second time in the season after a tie for 4th place at the Fortinet Championship in September last year, fell 15 places to 21st place (5 under par, 275 strokes).
Ahn Byeong-hun hit a long shot of up to 348 yards, but struggled due to poor shot accuracy.
He missed the green eight times, pouring out six bogeys. Birdie caught three.
Korean Justin Seo (USA), who competed for the championship, lost one stroke, but tied for 5th place (9 under par 271 strokes) and was named in the top 10 for the first time since his debut.
Justin Seo, who was ranked No. 1 in the amateur world rankings and boasted the strongest performance on the American college stage, entered the PGA Tour last year with No. 1 in points on the Corn Ferry Tour, but has not lived up to expectations.
Lee Min-woo (Australia), a Korean with a 4-under 66, raised the rankings to a tie for 26th (4-under 276).
Lim Seong-jae (25), who was ranked as the first candidate for the championship prior to this tournament, finished in a tie for 42nd (2 under par, 278 strokes).
Im Seong-jae caught 3 birdies that day and hit an even par 70 with 1 double bogey and 1 bogey.
Kim Seong-hyeon (25), who lost one stroke in the final round, tied for 63rd (2 over par, 282 strokes).
The championship went to Chris Kirk (USA) who defeated Eric Cole (USA) in overtime. 메이저놀이터
The two played overtime with a 14-under 266.
In the overtime played on the 18th hole (par 5), Kirk dropped the third shot 50cm next to the hole. Cole’s 2m birdie putt grazed the hole.
Kirk, who hit 1 under par on the day, drowned his second shot in the 18th hole of the 4th round, wrote down the bogey, and allowed an overtime game to Cole, who hit 3 under par.
After winning the Crowne Plaza Invitational in May 2015, Kirk rose to a career high of 5 wins in 7 years and 9 months. The winning prize is 1.512 million dollars (approximately 1.98 billion won).
Rookie Cole, who made headlines last month by proposing to his girlfriend at the Pebble Beach Links 18th hole tee box during the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am practice round, failed to overcome the last hurdle, but posted his best performance since his debut.
