Lim Seong-jae ‘Magic’, tied for 16th place at RBC in special competitions

Im Seong-jae (25)’s ‘magic’ continues at the RBC Heritage (total prize money of 20 million dollars), a special event on the American Professional Golf (PGA) tour.

In the third round of the tournament held at Harbor Town Golf Links (par 71) in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA on the 16th (Korean time), Im Seong-jae hit 5-under-par 66 with 6 birdies and 1 bogey.

Lim Seong-jae, who recorded an interim total of 9 under par and 204 strokes, passed the cut with a tie for 34th and raised the ranking to a tie for 16th that day, so he could look at his 5th top 10 and 10th top 25 of the season.

Im Seong-jae’s strength is that he is a back-up who raises the rankings after passing the cut. Im Seong-jae, who started PGA Tour activities from the 2018-2019 season, is recording a top 25 probability of 61% in competitions that passed the cut. He appeared in 138 career games and made the cut 111 times, with 68 top-25 finishes.

Seongjae Lim’s ‘magic’ worked in the Masters held earlier. Im Seong-jae, who passed the cut with a tie for 49th, finished in a tie for 16th, recording his 9th top 25 this season.

Tied for 16th in the Masters, the chance of passing the cut this season has increased to 69.2% of the top 25.

In this tournament, if you maintain your current ranking or raise it further, the probability of entering the top 25 when you pass the cut increases to more than 71%. This is why Lim Seong-jae has not been pushed out of the 30th place (currently 17th) in the world rankings for over three years.

Im Seong-jae, who started the 3rd round game from the 1st hole, reduced 2 strokes by tying 3 birdies and 1 bogey in the first half. In the second half, he raised his ranking by 18 steps by submitting a clean report card of three consecutive birdies from holes 13 to 15 without bogey.
