King of Kings. It is a modifier attached to the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first tournament of the new year of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, which opens on the 6th (Korean time). It deserves to be called the ‘King of Kings’ because only the winners of last year’s PGA Tour competitions or the top rankers in the FedEx Cup playoffs can compete. On this stage, Kim Joo-hyung and Lee Gyeong-hoon, winners of last year’s PGA Tour, and Lim Seong-jae, the top ranked FedEx Cup playoffs (2nd place), will appear on this stage. 스포츠토토

A total of 39 players will take part in this tournament with three Korean players. As golfers who have won the championship last year are participating, not only the Korean players but also the participating players are all gorgeous. Seven of the top 10 players in the world rankings will compete. World No. 2 Scotty Scheffler, No. 4 Patrick Cantley (US), No. 5 Jon Rahm (Spain), No. 6 Zander Chopley, No. 7 Will Jaratoris, No. 8 Justin Thomas (US), No. 9 Matt Fitzpatrick (England), etc. In addition, Jordan Spieth, Colin Morikawa (above), Victor Hovlan (Norway), and Hideki Matsuyama (Japan) are also golfers who are ranked within the top 20 in the world golf rankings and are considered candidates for the championship.

There are situations that can motivate the athletes who competed. If Schaeffler finishes in the top 3 in this competition, she will overtake Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and regain the world number 1 spot. In addition, the total prize money is expected to be 15 million dollars (approximately 19 billion won), which will attract the top rankers who have won the PGA Tour last year.

The tournament will be broadcast live simultaneously by JTBC Golf and JTBC Golf & Sports. The first round will be broadcast live on JTBC Golf & Sports from 6:00 am on the 6th, and JTBC Golf from 8:00 am.
