Si Woo Kim orchestrated an even-par 38-34=72 in the third round of THE PLAYERS for a 54-hole tally of 6-under 210, up 10 on the live leaderboard to T10.
The 20-year-old is making his PLAYERS debut along with 24 others -- 11 of whom made the cut. After opening in 68-70 and today's 72 on an extremely challenging day for scoring, he's easily pacing the first-timers; in fact, he's the only debutant currently inside the top 30. Kim was paired with Hideki Matsuyama in R3, who shot the second-best round of the day with 65, but his 72 was no small feat, as evidenced by his bump up the leaderboard. He squared four, two via 3-putts, but circled four, highlighted by a 19'11" birdie-2 at the par-3 17th and a hole-out from a greenside bunker for a '3' at the par-4 14th. May 14 - 6:58 PM

Si Woo Kim connected with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the opening round at this week's RBC Heritage.

The 20-year-old opened on the difficult back nine at Harbour Town Golf Links. He survived with a 1-under before making the turn, thanks to a 12'7" birdie roll at the par-4 13th hole and three par-savers from outside five feet. The longest roll of the day came on the par-3 fourth hole though, splashing home from 23-feet. Kim walked off the ninth green with 2.377 strokes gained:putting. The key today was avoiding trouble and making the putts when they were given to him. Kim ranks 40th in the FedExCup race and he's on his way to another strong finish through 18 holes.

Si Woo Kim splashed home an eagle to put a bow on today's 2-under-par 37-31=68, currently sitting two strokes off the lead.

The young phenom missed the cut at last week's Northern Trust Open, but is rebounding nicely through 18 holes. Kim got off to a slow start, missing a 3'4" par putt on the par-4 second to square his first bogey of the week. Adding another bogey at the seventh to make the turn at 2-over 37, Kim caught fire on the back nine. He landed his approach shot to 2'10" on the par-4 10th, grabbing an easy birdie. The final four holes is where the magic happened, rolling in three putts from outside 15 feet including the walk-off eagle from 15'5" on the par-5 18th hole. Kim has six top 25s already this season, and could be on his way to a seventh.

After three weather delays for wind and rain, the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open was suspended for the day with a restart scheduled for Monday at 8:00 a.m. PST.

For the third time in the 2015-16 season, the PGA TOUR will head to Monday to crown a champion. There were back-to-back Monday finishes in November at the Sanderson Farms and the OHL Classic. PGA TOUR rookie Si Woo Kim was one of the lucky ones, joining 22 others (of 71) to get their respective final rounds in before the stoppage. His top-10 streak will end at two, but he's on the bubble to make it three straight top 25s, as he concluded at 2-over 290, currently T25 on the leaderboard. The 20-year-old capped his tourney debut at Torrey Pines with a birdie-less 5-over-par 39-38=77 and heads to Scottsdale, Arizona, for this/next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open, where he'll also debut.
Jan 31 - 6:43 PM

Si Woo Kim crafted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the Farmers Insurance Open for a 36-hole total of 6-under 138, up 30 places on the live leaderboard to T4.

The 20-year-old entered the week off a career-best solo fourth (Sony) and T9 last week at the CareerBuilder. He finished with top honors of tourney debutantes at both. Making yet another debut at the Farmers (along with 27 others), he's co-leading first-timers once again thru 36 holes (Rob Oppenheim). Kim opened with a 2-under 70 in yesterday's first round on Torrey Pines North carding three birdies, an eagle-3, one bogey, and a double bogey-6. Today's loop on the more difficult South Course went for nine (of 14 fairways) -- for a second consecutive day -- and 12 greens in regulation. He converted scoring chances on Nos. 1, 3 (from 46'11"), 5 (from 34'2") and 8 to overshadow bogey-5s at 4 and 7 to turn 2-under. The Web.com Tour grad erased bogey at 11 with birdies at 13, 17 and the par-5 18th. At last check, he ranks first in the field at 1.560 putts per GIR.
Jan 29 - 5:42 PM

Si Woo Kim crafted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to conclude his tourney debut at 19-under 269, up four spots on the day and for the second straight week, finished with top honors of tournament debutantes.

If gamers weren't believers after last week's career-best solo fourth at the Sony, best among 20 first-timers on Oahu, perhaps this week's showing will convince them (us). Not only was Kim's two-way T9 this week his fifth top-25 finish of the season on seven events, it was also tops of 24 first-timers at the CB Challenge. The 20-year-old opened the finale on 14-under (T13) after posting 67-71-64. He erased a 3'6" birdie at the first with a three-putt bogey (from 55'9") at the second, but then played his final 16 holes in blemish-free 5-under. The Web.com Tour grad finished the week with one eagle, 21 birdies and four bogeys. He is in the published field (link below) at this week's Farmers Insurance Open where he'll be making his debut. That obviously hasn't stopped him lately.

Si Woo Kim fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge in Partnership with the Clinton Foundation for a three-day total of 14-under 202, up 41 places on the leaderboard.

The 20-year-old posted a career-best solo fourth (on 14 TOUR starts) at last week's Sony after rounds of 64-67-65-68. He's back at it again, chasing 67-71 with today's six-birdie one-eagle manhandling of the Nicklaus Tournament Course. The Web.com grad split 10 (of 14) fairways and converted his seven par breakers on 14 greens in regulation. Thru 54 holes, he sits T13 on the leaderboard, tops thus far among 24 first-timers in this week's field.
Jan 23 - 9:24 PM

Si Woo Kim carved out a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 16-under 264, good for solo fourth, and four shots back of a two-man playoff involving Brandt Snedeker and would-be-champ Fabian Gomez.

The Web.com Tour grad's solo fourth is a career best in just his 14th career PGA TOUR start. His previous best was T17 two starts ago at the OHL Classic. The 20-year-old began the finale in solo fourth on 14-under, two back of 54-hole co-leaders Snedeker and Zach Blair. He was bogey-free 3-under thru 10 holes, including back-to-back birdies at nine and 10, but played his final eight holes in a birdie-less 1-over, squaring bogey at the par-4 15th. After his birdie at 10 from 39 inches, his 17th circle of the week, he didn't have another look from inside of 12 feet the rest of the way. The South Korean's most memorable moment in the final round was a 30'6" birdie at the par-4 second. Along with the 17 birdies on the week, he also added two eagles and squared five bogeys en route to top honors of the 20 first-timers at Waialae CC.
Jan 18 - 12:06 AM

After opening his tourney debut in 64-67, Si Woo Kim tacked on a 5-under-par 34-31=65 on day three of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 14-under 196, up three spots to solo fourth on the live leaderboard.

Kim is the youngest ever to qualify for the PGA TOUR and was limited to eight starts during his rookie season in 2013 because he didn't turn 18 until June 28th. He spent the next two seasons on the Web.com Tour, finishing 10th last year in regular-season earnings to earn his second trip back to the big leagues. The now 20-year-old is one of 20 first-timers at Waialae CC this week and began his third frame in a five-way T7, three back of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker. He opened with eight straight pars before breaking the ice with an 11-inch gimme at the par-5 ninth and added mid-range birdies at 10 and 17. His lone bogey at the 13th was his only failed up-and-down going 6-for-7 in scrambles. The transplanted Californian wrapped with a walk-off eagle from 12'1" at the par-5 last.
Jan 16 - 10:14 PM

Si Woo Kim crushed Waialae Country Club with a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 20-year-old started the week ranked 50th in the FedExCup standings, and looks to be on the rise after round one. His first navigation of Waialae CC included seven birdies with just one blemish, a bogey on the par-4 fifth hole, where he missed a 5'5" par-saver. Gamers should not brush this one of as a fluke round, because Kim has a world of potential and is here to stay.
Jan 14 - 6:49 PM

In his second PGA TOUR season, 20-year-old Si Woo Kim has moved from 23rd on the Web.com Tour grad priority list to sixth following the first reshuffle post-RSM Classic.

The Fullerton, California, resident played five events in the fall portion of the wraparound season making three cuts, all three for top 25s (CUT-T25-CUT-T18-T17). Dating back to the WCT Finals, he's posted top 25s in five of his last seven events. Kim was limited to eight starts during his rookie season on TOUR in 2013 because he didn't turn 18 until June 28th. Let that sink in for a bit. He went 18-for-25 last season on the WCT (10th in Regular Season earnings) with eight top 25s, three for top 10s, including a runner-up and his first win in his 44th career start.

Si Woo Kim posted 6-under-par 33-33=66 at the Plantation Course at Sea Island Resort in today's opening round of The RSM Classic.

The 20-year-old already has two top 25s in four starts this season, so he's poised to make it three out of five. He missed only one green in regulation today and buried seven birdies, including on each of the four par 5s. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 13th where he failed to scramble for par and penciled a 5. Kim signed his card sitting just one stroke off the overnight lead.

Si Woo Kim completed two rounds of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in bogey-free, 10-under-par 68-64=132 and sits two swings in arrears of Graeme McDowell's 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Not that Kim possesses the same kind of pedigree as any of the winners this season, but he's only 20 years of age. That makes him the youngest cardholder on the PGA TOUR. He's also playing like he's going to join the bucket of breakthroughs in 2015-16 despite the fact that he's cashed only once in 11 career starts, that a T25 at the Shriners three weeks ago. Today's aggregate is his career low in 24 rounds. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies. Overall at El Camaleón, Kim is 8-for-8 in scrambling with 10 birdies. He's missed only one of 28 fairways thus far.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 01:30:00 PM

Si Woo Kim spun a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, reaching the halfway point in 7-under 135, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Despite being the PGA TOUR youngest member, he's not a rookie and he has game. It's been on display early at TPC Summerlin where he's totaled 28 opportunities to break par. Kim has nine birdies, six of which dropping today. Five of those found the cup from outside 13 feet, including tries from 26'3" and 51'4" at the par-4 second and seventh holes, respectively. He also knocked one in from off the green seven yards away at the par-4 12th. When it was all said and done, he had beaten his career low on the PGA TOUR by three shots. Granted, today's was just his 18th round, but he opened his career 0-for-9 in making cuts.

Si Woo Kim finished 10th on the Web.com Tour money list to secure his playing privileges for the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season and slots 23rd in priority ranking.

Kim is a native of South Korea, but resides in Southern California. He'll take the I-5 North for his Frys.com debut in Napa. In 2012, Kim made it through the PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament at the age of 17 years, 5 months, 6 days, making him the youngest player to graduate from Qualifying School. As a rookie on TOUR in 2013, he made only eight starts (didn't turn 18 until June 28th), missing the cut in seven and WD in the other after a first-round 79. Kim returned to the Web.com Tour in 2014 making just four cuts in 19 tournaments. The now 20-year-old played in all 25 events on the developmental circuit in 2015, cashing 18 times, with three top 10s, including winning his maiden pro title in a playoff at the Stonebrae Classic in mid-July.
