World No. 68 Si Woo Kim withdrew from the Shell Houston Open during his second round. UPDATE: Kim returned from his back injury at the 81st Masters and recorded rounds of 75-81=156 (+12), leading to a missed cut.
The 21-year-old was 1-over on his lap thru 16 holes, 5-over total when he called it quits. At press time, no reason has been cited. This was Kim's 10th straight week teeing it up. He started the streak with a WD after a first-round 83 at the Farmers; missed four consecutive cuts; finished T72 (of 76) at the WGC-Mexico; WD after a first-round 81 at the Valspar before T49 (Arnold Palmer) and T30 at the Match Play. Overall, this is his fifth mid-tourney WD in 57 career events, fourth this season in 15 starts. Kim is in the field at the Masters. Mar 31 - 7:06 PM

For the third time this season, Si Woo Kim has withdrawn mid-tournament, this time after the opening round of the Valspar Championship. There was no injury cited but he's struggled with a back injury in his past. UPDATE: Kim returned the following week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and finished T49 by week's end.

Kim was hitting it all over the yard today. He split just six fairways and hit even fewer greens (5). That lost him 4.225 strokes approaching-the-green but he also let it snowball onto the putting surfaces where he lost an additional 3.18 strokes putting. Kim walked off the course with just one birdie while swallowing five bogeys and a three-pack of doubles. He signed for a 10-over 81 before withdrawing.

After an opening round of 11-over-par 40-43=83, Si Woo Kim withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open citing a back injury. UPDATE: Kim returned to action on Feb. 2nd at the WM Phoenix Open and missed the cut by seven on 75-73=148.

Kim looked off his game from the start today, finding just one (of 14) fairways en route to just seven greens in regulation. He walked out of the scorer's tent losing 7.75 strokes tee-to-green. This is not a new injury for Kim, as he withdrew from this season's OHL Classic after 10 holes and also withdrew prior to the start of last week's Sony Open, presumably for the same reason. Kim is coming off a rookie campaign that featured 16 top 25s, but it's an easy decision for gamers to fade him until he proves a clean bill of health.

Prior to the start of the event, Si Woo Kim has pulled his name from the field at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii. First alternate Richy Werenski will take his spot in the field.

Kim did not provide a reason for the WD, but we can read between the lines based on the past few months of events. Kim withdrew after 10 holes at the OHL Classic in the fall, citing a back injury. He got right back on the horse the next week but missed the cut. He got some rest over the holiday break before returning last week at the SBS Tournament of Champions. He posted even-par 292 on the week to finish T30 (of 32) golfers. Gamers should remove him from all lineups this week and play it cautiously before re-investing in the future.

Si Woo Kim takes his talents across the Pacific Ocean as he preps for this week's SBS Tournament of Champions.

Kim capped off a phenomenal rookie season with a victory at the Wyndham Championship, earning him a spot in the field this week. After the win he pieced together three top 20s in the FedExCup Playoffs and then headed home to pick up a T2 at the Hyundai Insurance KJ Choi Invitational (Korean Golf Tour). The only risk for Kim this week is the recent back injury that forced him out of the OHL Classic after 10 holes. He returned with a missed cut the following week but luckily he's had five weeks to recover since. The 22-year-old has a bright future ahead of him and this may not be the last time in his career that we see him open a new year on Maui.

Si Woo Kim got through 10 holes during round one of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba before withdrawing due to a back injury. Update: Kim returned to action at The RSM Classic, posting rounds of 70-69=139 to miss the cut by two strokes.

Kim kicked off his day with a birdie at the par-4 first but things turned for the worst at the par-5 fifth when an errant tee shot forced him to take a drop, leading to a bogey. He followed that up with two more bogeys before righting the ship with a birdie at the eighth. After a bogey at the par-3 10th and another penalty off the tee at the par-4 11th he called it quits. Kim split 5-of-7 fairways and landed 7-of-10 greens on the day but swallowed a trio of three-putts. Making his 45th career PGA TOUR start this week, this goes in the book as his second mid-tournament WD.

Si Woo Kim breezed through TPC Kuala Lumpur during round four of the CIMB Classic, carding a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 to finish his week at 13-under 275 which places him inside the top 15 on the leaderboard.

Making his CIMB debut this week, Kim struggled with consistency, but rounds of 6-under 66 on Friday and Sunday certainly helped his cause. The 21-year-old swallowed at least two bogeys in each of his first three laps, but kept a clean card today as he posted his best GIR numbers of the week, landing 14 on the day. Kim walked off the course in a share of 10th place but he'll likely fall just outside the top 10 by day's end. Gamers should consider this a successful CIMB debut, making him an appealing option if he chooses to return to Malaysia in the future.

Si Woo Kim concocted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during the second round of the CIMB Classic to position himself inside the top 10 on 8-under 136 heading into the weekend.

Kim was masterful off the tee today, finding 12 (of 14) fairways but he couldn't be bothered to find the green (11-of-18 GIR). He scratched and clawed his way around TPC Kuala Lumpur and squeezed the most out of his round, circling eight birdies while squaring just two bogeys. Kim is making his 43rd career PGA TOUR start and will head into the weekend in a share of eighth place.

PGA TOUR rookie and 18-seed Si Woo Kim fired a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to post 2-under 278, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T11 and tying Sean O'Hair and Adam Scott for the low round of the week in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, three players posted better rounds of 64s and Kim finished in a five-way T10.

The 21-year-old began the final frame on 3-over (T20) after opening in 67-72-74, four shy of the overnight top 10. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.758 SG: Putting. The South Korean circled birdies on Nos. 2, 4, 7, 13 and 17, three from between 13 and 21 feet, and also dropped three par-savers from between eight and 12 feet. In a head-to-head with fellow rookie Emiliano Grillo for Rookie of the Year honors, Grillo is currently even-par for the week and playing the 15th hole.

Si Woo Kim backpedaled with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 during round two of the TOUR Championship, reaching the weekend on 1-under 139, good for T8 on the live leaderboard.

The PGA TOUR rookie opened with five pars before his playing partner Jason Day withdrew from the tournament. That is when Kim circled his first birdie, a 6'11" splash at the par-5 sixth. As the round when on, he may have got impatient playing solo as he bogeyed four of the closing 10 holes to drop four spots on the leaderboard, round-over-round. The 21-year-old lost 1.814 strokes to the field today, but he'll be re-paired tomorrow and is still well within striking distance with two more rounds to go. A good finish would go along way to help out his Rookie of the Year case.

Si Woo Kim kicked off his debut at the TOUR Championship with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the TOUR Championship to find himself right in the thick of things on day one.

The PGA TOUR rookie entered the week ranked 18th in the FedExCup race, nine spots behind his competition (Emiliano Grillo) for Rookie of the Year honors. So far, Kim is getting the better of Grillo at East Lake. The 21-year-old attacked in all facets of the game today. The tee-to-green highlight came at the par-4 eighth when he stuck his 186-yard approach to 20 inches for a tap-in birdie. Eight holes later he splashed in a 26'5" birdie putt to highlight his putting skills. To sign off in style, Kim holed out an nontraditional 88'7" birdie from off the green at the par-5 18th. The youngster will enter round two inside the top 10.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Si Woo Kim fashioned a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to open his Deutsche Bank Championship debut two off the pace of co-leaders James Hahn and Ryan Moore.

The second-year man kicked off his Playoffs debut with a missed cut at The Barclays (by one) after rounds of 74-72. That came just one week after winning the regular-season finale at the Wyndham, breaking through in his 38th career start. The South Korean found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting positive numbers in all strokes gained stats with the exception of -0.418 SG: Off-the-Tee. He outpaced bogeys at 14 and 1 (failed scrambles), with birdies on Nos. 12, 15, 18, 3, 4 and 7, three from greater than nine feet and highlighted by a 52-footer for birdie-2 at the third.

World No. 115 and overnight leader Si Woo Kim steadied a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in today's weather-delayed final round of the Wyndham Championship to match the tournament record of 21-under 259, and claim his first PGA TOUR title in his 38th career start.

The second-year man, a pre-tourney 100/1 outright, wins in his 30th start of the season, avenging a playoff loss five weeks ago at the opposite-field Barbasol, and matched the tournament mark set by Carl Pettersson (2008). He began the finale with a four-shot lead over playing competitor Rafa Cabrera Bello, his first 54-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR. The South Korean extended the lead to six at the turn with birdies on Nos. 1, 5, 8 and 9. He wobbled to bogeys on 10, 13 and 14, before a two-putt birdie-4 at 15 stopped the bleeding. Following a delay of 1 hour, 22 minutes, he returned to par the 17th and capped with a walk-off 3 from 13'6" at the par-4 18th. The 21-year-old's five-shot win over runner-up Luke Donald earns him among other things, an invite to the 2017 Masters, where he'll make his debut.

Overnight leader Si Woo Kim smoothed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship to post 18-under 192, good for a four-shot lead over Rafa Cabrera Bello.

The second-year man began the third round with a two-shot lead over four players, including playing competitor Kevin Na, who shot 67. He was coming off a career-low 60, setting the tournament and course record and yielding his first lead on TOUR after any round in his 38th career start. The South Korean squared bogey-5 at the fourth, missing a par-saver from 4'8", but camouflaged it with seven birdies, including back-to-backs to begin the round, stuffing both approach shots to inside of five feet. In fact, all seven birdies were from converted from less than seven feet, highlighted by a near hole-out (from 75 yards) at the par-4 eighth, kicking-in a 3-incher. The 21-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, and could've went lower, but missed three birdie tries from inside of six feet, contributing to a dismal -1.846 in SG: Putting.

Si Woo Kim torched Sedgefield Country Club en route to a bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-29=60 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, setting the new course record and staking claim of the early 36-hole lead at 12-under 128.

Kim was locked in from the start today, opening with a 6'5" birdie splash at the par-4 10th, adding five more circles before the turn. On the day he landed 17 greens in regulation to keep the scoring chances flowing. Kim's flat stick certainly came along for the ride, dropping in seven birdie putts from 5-to-19 feet in addition to a tap-in birdie at the par-3 16th and a 10'8" eagle conversion at the par-5 fifth. This easily eclipses his career-low round of 63 which occurred earlier this year at the Barbasol. The 21-year-old also takes ownership of the new course record at Sedgefield Country Club, knocking out five golfers that previously shared the record of 9-under 61. Kim has three top 10s on the season (and career), but he's now in great position to pick off his first career PGA TOUR win.
