Result:
LOSS

Shane Lowry is very good off the tee, but power is less important on this course with all the slopes and obstacles. Lowry finished 65th at the 2022 U.S. Open and currently ranks 124th in Strokes Gained Around the Green, 176th in Stroke Gained Putting, and 118th in Bogey Avoidance. He's also just 117th in Sand Save Percentage and 151st in Total Putting. Lowry is 87th in the FedEx Cup while Sung-Jae Im is 31st, plus 19th in the World Golf Rankings. Im is also very good off the team ranked 16th in Total Driving, Driving Accuracy Percentage, and Total Strokes Gained. And he's been terrific at picking up strokes at 20th in Strokes Gained Tee-to-Green, 17th in Strokes Gained Off-the-Tee, and 20th in Strokes Gained Around the Green. He has big advantages over Lowry in two of the key metrics for this course at 34th in Bogey Avoidance and eighth in Sand Save Percentage. Play Sung-Jae Im to win this head-to-head matchup.
