Lee Kyung-hoon, the first Korean player to win 3 consecutive victories in the same event on the PGA Tour

Lee Kyung-hoon is the first Korean player to win the same tournament for 3 consecutive years on the PGA Tour.

Lee Kyung-hoon will participate in the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson (total prize money of $9.5 million), which will be held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71, 7,414 yards) in McKinney, Texas, from the 11th (local time).안전놀이터

Lee Kyung-hoon succeeded in defending his title in this tournament last year and harvested his second win on the PGA Tour.

The 2021 event win was the first in 80 tour appearances.

Lee Kyung-hoon is the only Korean player to have won the same event two years in a row on the PGA Tour.

Although Kyung-Joo Choi won the Chrysler Classic in October 2005 and the Chrysler Championship in October 2006, the two events were held at different events.

Lee Kyung-hoon, who has not yet won a championship since then, is determined to win his third consecutive tournament title and third tour win at the same time.

Three consecutive tournament victories are an elusive record that is hard to find even in the entire history of the PGA Tour.

After World War II, only 9 players achieved this, and 7 of them were outstanding enough to be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

The most recent record was set by Steve Stricker (USA), who won the 2009-2011 John Deere Classic.

In AT&T Byron Nelson, founded in 1944, Tom Watson (USA) is the first and last to win three consecutive championships from 1978 to 1980.

It is a feat that is difficult to achieve, but we are looking forward to it in that Lee Kyung-hoon has recently shown a good trend.

Kyung-hoon Lee recorded his third top-ten of the season by finishing in a tie for 8th at the Wells Fargo Championship the previous day.

He has made the cut 13 times in 16 events this season and finished in the top 25 five times.

The best result was 3rd place in the CJ Cup in October last year.

The PGA Tour also placed Lee Kyung-hoon in second place in the tournament power rankings, and the leader is world number two Scotty Scheffler (USA).

World No. 1 Jon Rahm (Spain) and No. 3 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) did not compete, while last year’s runner-up Jordan Spieth (USA) withdrew due to a wrist injury.

Among local golf fans, Kyung-Hoon Lee was nicknamed ‘TPC LEE’ because he matched well with the venue of the tournament, TPC Craig Ranch.

Other Korean players are Bae Sang-moon, Kang Sung-hoon, Kim Seong-hyeon, Kim Si-woo, Kim Joo-hyung, Noh Seung-yeol, and Ahn Byung-hun competing for the championship.

Bae Sang-moon and Kang Seong-hoon lifted the trophy in 2013 and 2019, respectively.

In 2020, as the tournament was not held due to the aftermath of Corona 19, Koreans became champions in three consecutive tournaments until last year.
