Korean players include Lim Seong-jae (25), Kim Si-woo (28), Kim Seong-hyeon (25), An Byeong-hun (32), and Noh Seung-yeol (32).

In early February, Kim Joo-hyung will go to the PIF Saudi International (total prize money of 5 million dollars), the opening game of the Asian Tour 2023 season in Saudi Arabia.
Lim Seong-jae, who finished 6th at the Farmers Insurance Open last year, is expected to perform well this year as well.
Yon Rahm (Spain), who won both competitions in 2023, is the strongest candidate to win this competition.
Ram showed a particularly strong side at Torrey Pines.
He won this event in 2017, and maintained the top ranks of the Farmers Insurance Open held at Torrey Pines, including 5th place, runner-up, 7th place and 3rd place for 4 years from 2019 to last year.
He also won the 2021 US Open at this course.
He won both the Sentry Tournament of Champions and American Express, which he participated in this year. He earned 4.14 million dollars (approximately 5.11 billion won) in prize money alone for winning the two tournaments.
He also reached the top twice in DP World Tour events, such as the Spanish Open in October last year and the Tour Championship in December.
Last year’s Farmers Insurance Open winner Luke List, Zander Chopley, Justin Thomas, Colin Morikawa, and Will Jaratoris (both from the United States) are among the world’s top players appearing in this tournament. 메이저사이트
