Jordan Spieth (USA), who is ranked 10th in the world in men’s golf, overcomes a wrist injury and challenges the Career Grand Slam at the 105th PGA Championship.
Spieth said at a tournament press conference held at Oak Hill CC (par 70, 7394 yards) in Rochester, New York, USA on the 18th that he was happy that his left wrist injury had recovered satisfactorily. Confidence expressed verbally. Although he still wears a wrist brace, Spieth went through two practice rounds with ease.
If Spieth wins this time, he will achieve a career grand slam by winning all four major tournaments following the 2015 Masters, US Open and 2017 The Open. It is a feat that stands shoulder to shoulder with legendary players such as Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen, Tiger Woods (above USA) and Gary Player (South Africa).
Spieth, who missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship two weeks ago due to a wrist injury, said, “The injury happened by accident at home. In the meantime, he tried to recover by mobilizing all methods such as stem먹튀검증 cell treatment, laser treatment, and cooling treatment, and fortunately, since last Wednesday, he has been able to swing to his liking.”
Ahead of the second major tournament of the season, the world’s best players are also competing fiercely. World No. 1 John Rahm (Spain) and No. 2 Scotch Schaeffler (USA) compete for the major title and world No. 1 spot.
Following last month’s Masters victory, if Ram, who is aiming for a major win streak, wins, he will win 5 wins in the season, 12 wins on the PGA Tour, and 3 major wins, including the 2021 US Open. Schaeffler can take away Ram’s world No. 1 ranking with 3 wins in the season, 7 career wins, and 2 major wins.
Ram said, “I am confident. I am confident of winning, saying, “I feel good,” and Schaeffler also said, “My game is going well. I am in a good position.”
Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), ranked third in the world, is gaining strength as he slowly overcomes swing hunting after dropping out of the Masters cut. After winning the US Open in 2011, the PGA Championship in 2012 and 2014, and The Open in 2014, McIlroy, who has been suffering from a thirst for major championships, is paying attention to whether he will find a clue this time.
The chances of winning a major championship for LIV golf players such as Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson (above USA), and Cameron Smith are also not low. Koepka and Mickelson are aiming for another major championship by collecting the upward trend from a tie for second place at the Masters last month. Koepka has four majors and Mickelson has six.
