Nick Dunlap (USA), who reached the top of the PGA Tour tournament for the first time in 33 years as an amateur player, chose to turn professional after much deliberation, announcing his appearance as a special rookie on the PGA Tour.

Dunlap held a press conference at the University of Alabama on the 26th (Korean time) and announced that he would receive PGA Tour membership and participate as a professional in the PGA Tour AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which will be held for four days starting on the 2nd of next month.

Dunlap, a sophomore amateur golfer at the University of Alabama, won a surprise victory at the PGA Tour American Express on the 22nd.It has been 33 years since Phil Mickelson (USA) won the Northern Telecom Open in 1991 that an amateur player won a PGA Tour event. 안전 토토사이트

Rap, who was guaranteed the privilege of becoming a PGA Tour member and being eligible to play on the PGA Tour for the next two years if he turned professional by winning the American Express, has cut off contact with the media and has been contemplating whether to turn professional.

When announcing his decision to turn pro, he said, "It was the easiest and most difficult decision I've ever made in my life."

“Fortunately, everyone around me felt the same way,” Dunlap said. “My family and college golf teammates all encouraged me to follow my dreams.”

The PGA Tour, which is losing players to LIV Golf, is losing players to LIV Golf with the entry of Dunlap, who was famous as a local golf prodigy and has already proven his skills on the amateur stage by winning the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship and the U.S. Amateur Championship, as well as winning the PGA Tour tournament, on the professional stage. A box office star was lucky enough to walk in on his own.

However, upon turning professional, Dunlap lost the right to participate in major tournaments such as the Masters and the US Open, which he had earned as an amateur, and must win again as a professional.

In addition, there is no right to participate in specially designated tournaments, which only require being at the top of the FedEx Cup rankings, so one must be prepared for a difficult and thorny path on the PGA Tour. 카지노사이트존
