It’s a scary run. “Big Van” Ahn Byung-hoon has elevated his world ranking to 23rd, ranking first among Korean players along with his lifetime ranking.

By ranking third in the Wells Fargo Championship of the PGA Tour, which ended on Thursday (Korea time), Ahn has elevated his world ranking by nine notches from last week’s 32nd. He has been in the top form lately, as he has almost won the title for two consecutive weeks following the joint fourth place at the CJ Cup byronelson. Earlier, Ahn’s lifetime best world ranking was 24th in 2016.

In particular, due to the nature of the world ranking, which combines performances over the past two years, Ahn has little to lose as he went down to the second part of the tour in the 2021-2022 season. He is most advantageous among Korean players to elevate the world ranking.

Ahn started at 60th in global rankings this year, but has continued his upward trajectory, appearing in 13 competitions this season and ranking in the top 10 five times. Having his swing corrected after meeting coach Sean Foley is finally taking effect. Ahn also said, “I am playing with trust in my swing and my golf.”

On the other hand, Kim, who had never made the top 10 this season and was mired in a slump, started as 11th in the world rankings this year, but fell to 26th this week, falling to the “Korean No. 2.” Kim thought he had virtually confirmed his qualification for the Olympics earlier this year. Things have changed, however. Lim Sung-jae, who is on the rise again, also jumped from 38th last week to 32nd this week. He is the third Korean player to do so, but the gap between Kim and Kim is only six notches. Due to the narrow difference, the rankings can be reversed at any time.

Ahn Byung-hoon, Kim Joo-hyung and Lim Sung-jae competed fiercely, and the direction of the two Korean national team members who will participate in the Paris Olympics has become foggy. The top two players in the world rankings are eligible to participate in the event.토토사이트 추천

The final decision will be world rankings dated June 17. Since the U.S. Open, the third major competition of this season, there is a high possibility that the world rankings will fluctuate.
