Every week is very important to me, especially this week, said Li Haotong, 23. This is the World Championship, and I didnt play well in the first two games.

This week is Li Haotongs 12th U.S. Tour this season - the maximum number of non-U.S. Tour members. If he can get more than 16 FedEx Cup non-member points (ranked 41st or higher), he will cross the 266-point pass line and get a special temporary membership in the U.S. Tour.

This qualification will give him the right to take part in the U.S. Tour with sponsored foreign cards without restrictions on the number of tournaments, but with only the last game left, even if Li Haotong gets sponsored foreign cards to compete, he also needs to perform extremely well to have the chance to get enough top 125 Federal Express after the regular season. Cup integral. Li Haotongs current score is 250 points, while the score of the 125th player in the FedEx Cup is 351 points. After two weeks of competition, the threshold will only be higher.

Ive adjusted a lot recently and Im getting more and more aware of my playing skills, said Li Haotong. I hope I can play well this week. This is his second time to participate in the World Championship - FedEx St. Jude Invitational, and his first time to come to TPC South Wind. Last years competition was held at the Flintstone Golf Club in Ohio, where Li Haotong eventually ranked 39th.

Over the past two weeks, a Chinese brother has been eliminated in Scotland and Northern Ireland for two consecutive games, and the world ranking has fallen to 46th this week. In the first two days of the British Open, his accuracy of kick-off was only 54%, out of 90 places. Some time ago, my No. 1 wood was not very good, and now Im trying to adjust No. 1 wood, said Li Haotong. If No. 1 wood is good, my condition will be much better.

On Thursday, in the first round of the TPC South Wind, Li Haotong will play with Mickelson and Danish player Olsen. Chinese Taipei player Pan Zhengwan will also play in the first two rounds with Baba Watson and Adam Scott. Only 63 people attended this weeks World Championships - Laurie, the winner of the New Koch UK Open, withdrew temporarily - without a promotion line. The champion of the World Championship will receive 550 FedEx Cup points. Regardless of Li Haotongs performance in the next week or two, there is a great possibility that he will automatically join the Presidential Cup International Team to participate in the Presidential Cup held in Melbourne, Australia, in December, and become the first Chinese player to appear in the Presidential Cup. Li Haotong is currently ranked fifth in the Presidential Cup international team rankings. As of August 18, the top eight players will automatically be selected into the international team. As long as we play well and achieve good results, we should take part in the Presidential Cup, said Li Haotong. I am also looking forward to my first Presidential Cup. Pan Zhengwan is also expected to represent Taipei, China, in the Presidential Cup, ranking sixth in the international teams scoreboard.
