Sungjae Im has received a positive COVID-19 test before the KPGA Woori Finance Championship this week and has withdrawn, casting doubt on his ability to play in next week’s PGA Championship.

Check out the latest comprehensive and most trusted Sportsbook Reviews by SBR here.

Im is priced at +5000 at DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook, and +6000 at Caesars Sportsbook to win next week’s PGA Championship.

The 24-year-old sits 10th in the FedExCup rankings this season and ranks 16th in scoring average on the tour. He has one win and five Top 10 finishes this season, making the cut in each of his last six tour events. His most recent finish was a tie for 14th at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Im won the Schriner’s Children’s Open in October of 2021, his second career PGA victory. He has played in four PGA Championships, missing the cut twice, and finishing a career-best 17th in last year’s event.

As noted, there is still uncertainty about Im’s availability for next week’s tournament because of travel restrictions following a positive test for COVID-19.
