The green jacket that Kim Ha-seong was asked to wear was taken by Spain’s Yon Ram. Ram, who won the come-from-behind victory in the Masters, which is called the ‘great match’, regained the world number one spot.
This is Reporter Seongryong Ha from Augusta, USA.
When the remainder of the third round, which was postponed due to bad weather, ended, Yon Rahm, who was two strokes behind the leader Brooks Koepka, reversed the game early in the final round.
Until the 8th hole, while Koepka shook with two bogeys, Ram caught only two birdies and took a two-stroke lead.
And he landed a counter punch on the 14th hole, where he was leading by three strokes.
He landed a ball low under a tree and exquisitely put it on the pin to add a birdie, widening the gap to Kepka who committed a bogey by 5 strokes, effectively driving a wedge.
With a final total of 12 under par, Rahm, who beat LIV Golf’s Koepka and Phil Mickelson by 4 strokes, became the first owner of the green jacket given to the winner of the Masters in his 7th challenge.
He returned to the top of the world rankings with a winning prize of 4.2 billion won, the highest ever in the Masters. 메이저놀이터
