Im Sung-jae wants to win the Masters this year. He was chasing after the green jacket after Hideki Matsuyama won it two years ago. Before the Masters Tournament returns to Augusta National this weekend, Im said he is preparing another title run at the event.
According to sports betting records, Im won two PGA Tour tournaments. Also, he knows that his track record will make him a worthy contender. His best finish in the Masters was second place during his debut in the tournament. In addition, it was the best finish for an Asian golfer at that time.
However, Matsuyama won the Masters five months later. That made him the first Asian to win the tournament. Also, it proved that earning the green jacket is no longer a pipe dream for Asians. Im believes his time to wear the jacket will come soon.
Im Sung-jae Wants to Win the Masters
Im, like many others, has fantasized about sinking the putt that would win him the Masters. But, according to betting odds experts, his parents first gave him plastic golf clubs when he was four years old, and he quickly showed promise, winning twice on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018 before making a name for himself on the PGA Tour.
According to sports news reports, Im has a strong history at Augusta National. Also, he has had four top-10 finishes this season, including a tie for sixth at The Players Championship in April. In addition, he played in the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin two weeks ago and won two of his three group matches before taking last week off to get in shape.
Many players, including Im, are interested in the par-5 13th hole’s new 545-yard length after the tee box was moved back 35 yards. The first of two par-5s on the back nine at Augusta National, Rae’s Creek meanders along the left side of the fairway, cuts across the front of a tricky green, and has tripped up many of the game’s biggest stars throughout the years.
