Spain’s Jon Rahm won the US Pro Golf Tour Genesis Invitational and regained the world No. 1 ranking in 11 months. Ram, Schaeffler, and McIlroy are providing golf fans with something to see for the first time in a long time as they engage in a fierce battle for supremacy every week. This is reporter Park Ji-woon.
Yon Rahm of Spain became the first player to reach the 3-win mark this season, beating Max Homa of the United States by two strokes.
By winning the Genesis Invitational, he won 3.6 million dollars in prize money and about 4.68 billion won, while also rising from 3rd to 1st in the world rankings.
It is the first time in 11 months since March of last year that Ram regained the world number one.

“I have never won three championships in one season on the PGA Tour. With Rahm’s victory,
the PGA world No. 1 changed twice in the past three weeks, and Scotty, who overtook Rory
McIlroy last week and returned to No. 1 after four months Schaeffler gave up the top spot to Ram again within a week, and 메이저놀이터
while Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson, who once commanded the PGA stage, were sluggish, men’s golf seems to be flowing into a three-person match.
As much interest as their golf fight is whether Tiger Woods, the ‘Emperor of Golf’, can return to his heyday.
I had to be satisfied with a tie for 45th in an official competition that came out after 7 months, but I left open the possibility of ‘return of the emperor’ by completing 72 holes in the 4th round.
The PGA Tour greatly increased the number of special events with a total prize pool of over $20 million this year.
Golf fans are delighted to watch those who are about to become the new emperor, and those who are recovering from injuries and trying to regain their former reputation.
