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. Nov 19 - 3:56 PM

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.

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.
Oct 23 - 4:33 PM

Si Woo Kim finished 10th on the 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 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 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.
Oct 13 - 8:15 AM

Si Woo Kim earned his first Tour victory at the Stonebrae Classic after carding a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round and surviving a three-man playoff at 12-under 268.

Kim birdied the par-5 18th on the first playoff hole at TPC Stonebrae to oust Jamie Lovemark and Wes Roach. Kim settled for seven pars to go with a birdie and a bogey on the front nine, and then added seven pars and two birdies on the back. The irons were the key to his success this week, as he tied for the lead in GIR at 56. With this victory, he moves from 67th to 16th on the Tour money list and is extremely close to locking up his 2015-16 PGA TOUR card. Consequently, Lovemark and Roach have now erased any doubt about their promotion to the big leagues next season.
Jul 19 - 10:02 PM

Si Woo Kim posted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Stonebrae Classic and is one of three players tied for the lead at 10-under 200.

Kim's modest lap around TPC Stonebrae included three birdies, two bogeys and 13 pars. He landed 13 GIR on the afternoon and ranks fourth in the tournament with 41 through 54 holes. Entering the week ranked 67th on the Tour money list, the 20-year-old would go a long way towards earning a PGA TOUR card for the second time in his young career with a win on Sunday.
Jul 18 - 9:34 PM

Si Woo Kim reached the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship in 8-over-par 77-71=148 and will miss the cut.

Well, that does it for one of the newest PGA TOUR members (as of June 28 when he turned 18 years of age). Prior to being old enough to accept his card officially, he went 0-for-2 with one missed cut and one withdrawal. Since he became eligible, Kim went 0-for-6, including today's result. His only shot to qualify for the Tour Finals is probably to win next week's Cox Classic on the Tour where he's currently 146th in earnings.

Si Woo Kim has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Kim was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He squeezed into the field following three withdrawals this afternoon. After failing to cash in two starts before turning 18 years of age on June 28, he's gone 0-for-3. Barring a Woody Austin-like week at Glen Abbey, the rookie is wise to focus on cracking the top 200 in the FedExCup standings to qualify for the Tour Finals. He's also 129th on the Tour money list, so no matter which road to the new qualifying process he chooses, it's a long one.

Si Woo Kim makes his first trip to The Old White TPC for The Greenbrier Classic.

Happy birthday is in order, as Kim turned 18 on June 28 and now officially qualifies as a PGA TOUR member and a rookie. He missed his cut in his two previous PGA TOUR starts, but has secured three (of five) paychecks on the Tour including a T11 at the Mid-Atlantic Championship. He has precious little time remaining to mount a charge at keeping the PGA TOUR card he earned via Q School at the end of 2012.

Si Woo Kim spun a 5-under-par 32-33-65 in the opening round of the Mid-Atlantic Championship and shares the lead with Tim Petrovic.

Kim opened on TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm on the back nine, playing that stretch blemish-free with three birdies. After turning, he quickly picked up his fourth and fifth birdies at the second and third holes. His only dropped shot came at the par-4 seventh, but he bounced back with a birdie on the ninth to end his round. This is his third Tour start, and he missed the cut in his two previous tries. He'll become a PGA TOUR member when he turns 18 on June 28.

Si Woo Kim shot a 4-over-par 36-39=75 at the open qualifier of this week's Tampa Bay Championship at Fox Hollow Golf Club in New Port Richey, Fla., eight strokes too high to join the playoff for the final two spots into the tournament proper.

Kim called it quits in Puerto Rico after one round last week so it's promising that he was able to make the trip and play 18 holes on Monday even if it resulted in two birdies, four bogeys and a double. He doesn't become a PGA TOUR member until he turns 18 on June 28, but we'll continue to monitor his progress elsewhere until he does.

Si Woo Kim withdrew following his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open with a back injury.

He signed for a 7-over-par 37-42=79 before calling it a week in Puerto Rico. It's a disappointing conclusion given he's been sitting on a valuable sponsor exemption into the event for months. The 2012 Q School grad won't be eligible for PGA TOUR membership until his 18th birthday on June 28.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 02:29:00 PM

Si Woo Kim is listed in the published field of next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Kim is a Q School graduate but he won't be eligible to accept membership until his 18th birthday on June 28. Therefore, any earnings and FedExCup points he gathers before then will be unofficial. His appearance at Pebble Beach is a bit of a surprise since the only news involving playing opportunities includes a sponsor exemption into the Puerto Rico Open on March 7-10.

Si Woo Kim closed out the final stage of Q School with a 4-under-par 68 at PGA West's Stadium Course to earn a PGA TOUR card in 2013.

The South Korean climbed from outside the top-25 bubble (at T30) to finish T20 at 18-under 414. He was all over the headlines throughout the six-round event because he's only 17 years old. PGA TOUR members must be 18, an age Kim won't reach until June 25. As a result, the 2013 rookie will be treated as a non-member until then, but with several exceptions. His earnings and FedExCup points will be unofficial until his birthday. More importantly, because his earnings are unofficial, as of right now, any prize money banked before his birthday will not contribute to his total used in the graduate reshuffle.
