The composition of the world No. 1 three-way match between John Rahm (Spain), Scottie Scheffler (USA), and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is gradually leaning toward John Rahm.
Current ranking No. 1 John Rahm recorded a 7 under par 75 in the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the PGA Tour held at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72) in Orlando, Florida, USA on the 3rd (Korean time). . Ram, who recorded 1 eagle, 6 birdies and 1 bogey, took the lead by two strokes ahead of the second-place group including Chris Kirk, Cameron Young and Kurt Kitayama. 메이저놀이터
Rahm, who lost first place to Rory McIlroy last year, has been in the top 10 in all five tournaments he has participated in this year, and is continuing his performance without ups and downs enough to win three times. After regaining first place last month, they are playing a more overwhelming game as if saying, ‘I will not give up my seat anymore’.
In the 16th hole (par 5), after succeeding in two-on, he put an eagle putt 7m away, widening the gap with his chasing competitors.
Defending champion and former world No. 1 Schaeffler shot a 4-under-par 68 with 6 birdies and 2 bogies to get off to a good start, finishing 3 strokes behind Ram for 5th place.
McIlroy, one of the players in the 3-way match, fell into the lower ranks with a 1-over-par 73 strokes.
Among Korean players, Lee Gyeong-hoon, who hit 2-under-par 70, had the best performance, and Lim Seong-jae and Kim Si-woo started with 1-under 71.
Seonghyun Kim and Joohyung Kim finished the first round with an even par, and Byeonghun An with a 3-over par.
