For the fifth consecutive year, South Korea’s Sungjae Lim has advanced to the Tour Championship, the final round of the PGA Tour Playoffs (PO)온라인바카라, where he participated in a video interview with Korean media prior to the start of the tournament.

After combining his regular season results with the results of the first and second rounds of the POs over the past two weeks, Lim finished 17th on the FedExCup points standings, earning a spot in the final round of the POs, which is limited to the top 30 players. The tournament will be held at East Lake Golf Club (Par 70) in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for four days starting on Sept. 25 (KST).

In a video interview on the night of the 23rd, Lim said, “I’m very happy to be playing in the Tour Championship for the fifth consecutive year. I was playing in an ambiguous position in the points rankings because of my poor performance from the middle of the season, but I think my shot feeling improved from the POs and I was able to stay in the top 10 and achieve my goal of qualifying for the Tour Championship.”

Lim entered the final round ranked 32nd in the FedExCup standings, but moved up to 17th after the second round and heads into the Tour Championship with a two-under-par bonus. He is eight strokes behind leader Scottie Schaeffler (USA – 10-under par), so the pressure is not on, but after starting last year six strokes behind the leader and finishing in a one-stroke tie for second place, there is reason to expect a good performance this year.

“Last year, I started with four under par and finished tied for second. This year, I am eight strokes behind the leader, but I plan to play calmly day by day rather than chasing the leader. Especially on the East Lake course, you have to be patient, so I think I can compete for the championship if I enjoy myself for four days and perform well.”

“Before I went to Korea, I had a lot of top 10s and consistently good results, but after I went to Korea, I lost my swing balance, especially my tee shot accuracy, so I didn’t perform well. Fortunately, when I did a swing check, I realized that my setup had changed, and I fixed it, and my shot feeling came back at the end of the season. I think I’m in the position I’m in now because my shot feeling came back when it mattered.”

The final match will feature three South Korean players in Lim Sung-jae, Kim Si-woo and Kim Joo-hyung. This is the first time since the inception of the FedExCup Playoffs series in 2007 that South Korea will have three players in the final, which features the 30 best players of the season.

“I’m proud to have three Korean players in the final 30,” said Lim. I don’t think Korean players are at all inferior to players on the PGA Tour in terms of mental and technical skills. I’m looking forward to seeing how they perform in the final round,” he said.

He also commented on Kim Joo-hyung, who is playing in his first Tour Championship. “It’s amazing that he won twice at the age of 20 while playing on the PGA Tour. It’s really hard to win a championship as a non-member, but I realized then that he is a really great player. Looking at him makes me want to work harder. I’m looking forward to the future,” he said.
