The all-time winner of the Genesis Championship is the Titleist
The prize money is 300 million won. The champion is eligible to participate in the Genesis Open, which is co-hosted by the PGA Tour Genesis Championship, the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour, and the PGA Tour The CJ Cup. Ahead of the Korea Professional Golfers’ Association (KPGA) Korean Tour Genesis Championship, all Korean top golfers are burning their will to win.
The Genesis Championship will be held for four days from the 6th at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea Urban Link Course (par 72) in Songdo, Incheon.
In particular, there are only three KPGA tours left, including the tournament, so a player with the trophy is likely to be on the “Indigenous Golf King” this week.
All players want to win, but there are players who are especially confident. They are the players who use the Titleist ball.
At the Genesis Championship, which marks its sixth anniversary this year, five champions of all time have something in common.
Starting with Kim Seung-hyuk, the first champion in 2017, Lee Tae-hee, Lim Sung-jae, Kim Tae-hoon, and Lee Jae-kyung all used Titleist golf balls.
This is why more than 70 Titleist sponsoring players, including Seo Yo-seop, Park Sang-hyun, Lee Hyung-joon and Lee Jae-kyung, took group photos on the 4th, determined to “continue to win the Genesis Championship this year.”
Seo Yo-seop, who has two wins this year, said, “It has been a warm-up so far. “I will definitely win this tournament,” he said.
This year, the titleist is also strong on the Korean Tour, the first-division Korean Tour.
In the previous 18 competitions, Titleist ranked first in usage in all categories of drivers, wood, hybrid, iron, and wedges as well as balls.
Golf shoes and golf gloves are also overwhelmingly ranked first with 67 percent and 62 percent, respectively, including Footjoy.
The Titleist’s run on the men’s golf stage was not made in a short time. 안전놀이터
Seo Dong-joo, director of Akushnet’s leadership team, who is in charge of supporting Titleist and Footjoy players in Asia and the Pacific region, including Japan and China, as well as Korea,
“It is not just one or two years of effort that has paid off from the Korean Tour to the club as well as golf balls, but from 2006 to now
“It was possible only because of the players’ skills and the investment and efforts of Akushnett, who focused on the development of the tour for 17 years,” he said
“In the future, Titleist and Footjoy will continue to make both material and material efforts and invest in everything our players need,” he explained.
