FINAL RANKING

EQUIPMENT NOTES:

  • As always, Sungjae’s victory was built on a flawless hitting the ball, the Korean hitting all but one in regulation on the last round, a feat he also achieved in the second round. I hit over 86% of TPC Summerlin’s greens in regulation for the week, with the 23-year-old opting for the new 2021 T200 3-iron, a club that has been a popular long-iron option on the Tour since its release, while he still has the previous T100 irons in the bag.
  • When Im lines up with a good week hitting the ball, he’s inevitably on the hunt. His second PGA Tour victory came in a week where he finished 9e in strokes won: putting. Im’s Scotty Cameron mallet model is a center shaft putter that is quite rare on the PGA Tour today.

  • Part of a Korean double on the PGA and LPGA tours this week (Jin Young Ko won on the LPGA tour), Im is also part of a hat-trick for Titleist. The company’s drivers and golf balls won all three grand tours in action last week. The 2019 Presidents Cup representative also gave Titleist’s Pro V1 model its second victory at three PGA Tour events so far this season.

QUOTE: “It was very difficult to get my first win, but I felt the second was getting harder and harder, but I kept my patience. I tried to stay calm throughout the period and I’m glad it happened. ” – Sungjae Im.
