Byung-hoon Ahn, who is cruising on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour in the 2024 season, will return to Riviera Golf Course for the Genesis Invitational for the first time in seven years. “I’m satisfied with my performance this season,” Ahn said in a video interview with South Korean media on Friday, “but I haven’t yet secured a spot in a major, so I’ll focus more on that.”Ahn has played in four PGA Tour events this year, including a runner-up casinositezone finish at the Sony Open and a tie for fourth at The Sentry. Ahn, who finished 2023 at No. 60 in the world, has yet to qualify for the Masters in April, where he is currently ranked No. 44 and will need to climb into the top 50 before the Masters. The Genesis, which kicks off at Riviera Country Club in California, USA, on April 16, is an excellent opportunity for him to improve his ranking as it is an exclusive event featuring the world’s top players.

“This will be my first time competing in this event since 2017 after recently missing out due to scheduling conflicts,” said Ahn.”I also want to compete in the Paris Olympics this year, but the major tournaments come first,” he said, adding, “The Olympics is still some time away, so I want to put it off and focus on the major tournaments.”Ahn, whose parents are Olympic table tennis medalists (Ahn Jae-hyung and Zhao Zemin), said, “When I was younger, my parents advised me a lot about mental strength, but after I turned professional, they trusted me to take care of myself .”In fact, he said, his coach Sean Foley gives him a lot of mental advice outside of his golf swing. “Coach Foley told me that family is more important than golf, and I didn’t have time to feel disappointment because I was busy traveling and flying with my family,” Ahn said after losing in a playoff at the Sony Open last month .Ahn will tee off in the first round of the Genesis Invitational 온라인카지노 at 0:44 a.m. on Saturday.
