I missed the win… ‘Defending Champion’ Spieth earned 1 billion more than last year

The power of the ‘Express Tournament’토스카지노.

Jordan Spieth (USA) was satisfied with the runner-up at the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour RBC Heritage (total prize money of 20 million dollars) held at Harbortown Golf Links (par 71) in Hilton Head, South Carolina, USA on the 17th (Korean time). .

Spieth, who won this tournament last year, reduced 5 strokes by making 6 birdies and 1 bogey while aiming for a second consecutive victory. Co-leader Matt Fitzpatrick (England) jumped into overtime, but gave up the championship to Fitzpatrick, who made a birdie in the third game.

Despite finishing runner-up, Spieth took more prize money than when she won last year. In 2022, RBC Heritage had a total prize money of $8 million, and the winning prize was $1.44 million.

However, this year, the PGA Tour designated RBC Heritage as a ‘special event’. The total prize money jumped to 20 million dollars, and the winning prize is 3.6 million dollars. The runner-up prize money is also $2.18 million. 

So Spieth took home $740,000 more than last year despite not winning this tournament. When converted into Korean currency, it is close to 1 billion won.

The PGA Tour has created a “special tournament” from the 2022-23 season. It is to fight against LIV golf. The prize money was raised about twice that of regular competitions, and the participation of top players in the Player Impact Program (PIP) was guaranteed. 

PIP players are fined if they do not compete in two or more top-level competitions. Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) has been fined $3 million for not participating in a high-end event for the second time.

Spieth applauded the winner, saying, “I wish it had been different,” but “I didn’t expect it to be this windy. I knew I could make it with a 5-under par. I played well in the playoffs, but Fitzpatrick played really good golf.” . 

He said, “After the Masters, I also defended my title at RBC Heritage. I think I should take a break for at least two weeks. My next competition is the Wells Fargo Championship, which will be held at the Quailhalo Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.”
