World No. 42 Si Woo Kim fashioned a 4-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions for a four-day total of 11-under 281, up two places to solo 10th.
The 22-year-old was making his second appearance after T30 (of 32) last year. It's his second top 10 of the season in six events, joining solo 3rd at the OHL Classic two starts ago. After kicking off in 69-71-72, the South Korean began T12 on 7-under, one shy of the overnight top 10. He landed 11 (of 15) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 1.632 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.202 tee-to-green. Kim opened with bogey-5 at the first (3-putt from 47'3"), but then played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 5-under, circling 5, 9, 10, 14 and 15, all from inside of nine feet. He posted 1.813 putts per GIR and -0.515 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. Jan 7 - 9:31 PM

Si Woo Kim slowed his pace but still managed a 2-under-par 36-35=71 during round two of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, entering Saturday in a share of eighth place on 6-under 140.

The 2017 PLAYERS champion was locked in on Thursday. He ended the day gaining 4.960 strokes approaching-the-green. That ball-striking was so good that he still sits in 1st place on the week in SG:APP, despite gaining just 0.371 strokes on approach today. At the midpoint, the 22-year-old ranks T6 in fairways hit (21 of 30) and T3 in GIR percentage (29 GIR). If Kim maintains his steady striking, he should remain in the mix come Sunday night.

Si Woo Kim put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a 4-under-par 34-35=69 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, grabbing the early lead with play still in progress.

Kim was clicking on all cylinders today, except for his putting. The 22-year-old split 11 (of 15) fairways and then pelted 16 greens in regulation. They weren't just-barely GIRs, either. He gained 5.072 strokes approaching-the-green at the time he signed his card. Unfortunately, he missed seven scoring chances from the 5-to-11 foot range. Kim finished T30 here last year in his debut, but he's off to a much better start this time around. If his putter can warm up then Kim could be one to watch closely over the weekend.
Jan 4 - 8:00 PM

Si Woo Kim heads out into the Pacific ahead of this week's Sentry Tournament of Champions.

The 22-year-old is already becoming a regular at Kapalua's Plantation Course. Kim won the 2016 Wyndham Championship to qualify last year then went on to finish T30 (of 32). This time around he cracks the field through his massive win at THE PLAYERS. World No. 42 is still searching for the consistency gene but the upside is clearly there. Gamers should continue to treat Kim as a boom-or-bust option in all fantasy formats until he proves otherwise.

With preferred lies in effect, World No. 45 Si Woo Kim spun a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to wrap on 15-under 269, up four places to solo 3rd, four adrift of champion Patton Kizzire.

This is the 22-year-old's fourth career top-3 finish in 76 career events and his first top 10 since winning the second (of two) TOUR titles at the 2017 PLAYERS 26 weeks ago. It's his second cash and second top 25 at the OHL in three tries (T17/2016) and his first top-40 finish of the season in four starts (T44, CJ CUP). After kicking off in 67-68-69, the South Korean began T7 on 9-under, six back of 54-hole leader Kizzire. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, carding eight birdies, highlighted by five straight at holes 5-9. Kim's only blemish was a costly one, double bogey-6 at 14. He posted 1.462 putts per GIR with 24 total putts.

Si Woo Kim smoothed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=68 during the second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, jumping inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard with a two-day tally of 7-under 135.

Kim swallowed just one bogey in his opening round to position himself just outside the top 10. He continued his steady play on day two, circling three birdies and 15 pars. The 22-year-old is known as one of the elite short-game players on TOUR and that has held true this week, carding just one bogey thru 36 holes despite ranking T55 in GIR percentage (25 GIR). Kim hasn't recorded a top 35 over his last 10 starts, but he's proven that when he gets into contention, he doesn't shy away from the fight. A two-time PGA TOUR winner already, Kim will be one to watch closely this weekend.

Si Woo Kim gears up for his third full season on TOUR as he sets his eyes on TPC Kuala Lumpur for this week's CIMB Classic.

The 22-year-old already has a pair of wins on his CV, but there is still plenty of potential to untap. In particular, his consistency needs improvement, missing the cut (or withdrawing) in 28-of-64 starts since becoming a full-time PGA TOUR member, two years ago. The WDs are what is most alarming. Perhaps we can chalk that up to age at this point, feeling the need to grind every week instead of picking his spots. Next up for the youngster, is a second look at TPC Kuala Lumpur (finished T10 last year) to kick off the new season. With the next three events in Asia, Kim has a good chance to jump out to a quick start this season and perhaps springboard him to the best season of his young career.

Si Woo Kim settled for an 8-over-par 40-39=79 before withdrawing from the 99th PGA Championship, citing a shoulder injury. UPDATE: Kim returned to action Aug. 24th at THE NORTHERN TRUST and shot 2-over 72 in Round 1.

Kim split nine (of 14) fairways today but parlayed that into just seven greens in regulation. He found water once and had one three-jack, as well. Kim was playing in his fifth career major championship and has now missed the cut in four of them (T13 at the 2017 U.S. Open). In 69 career starts, the 22-year-old now has a whopping seven mid-tournament WDs on his resume, six of them coming this season. Kim generally has no troubles getting right back on the horse, so gamers should expect to see him next week at Sedgefield Country Club, where he'll be defending his title. If he doesn't show up next week then gamers should consider this a pretty serious injury. UPDATE: Kim is NOT listed in the Wyndham Championship field, opting for rest instead.

Si Woo Kim makes his final preparations at Royal Birkdale as he readies for his Open Championship debut this week in Southport, England.

After a consistent rookie season, Kim has been all-or-nothing this year as he battled through injuries. It appeared that was behind him after winning THE PLAYERS but since then he's just 1-for-5 including a mid-tournament WD at the Memorial Tournament. The 22-year-old is 1-for-3 in major championship, with the recent T13 at Erin Hills being the clear highlight. The youngster has a world of upside, but he remains a high risk, high reward play for the foreseeable future.

Si Woo Kim is an early-week withdraw from this week's Travelers Championship. Bobby Gates will take his spot in the field.

There is no reason cited for the change of heart on Monday. He arrives fresh off a T13 finish at the U.S. Open Championship. There was a shot or two where Kim looked like he may have tweaked his back (his common injury), but it may have also just been him wincing due to him not liking the shot he executed. A few months ago, Kim would have possibly remained committed here but with a win at THE PLAYERS, he now has plenty of job security, allowing him to be more flexible with his scheduling.

With a 4-under-par 35-33=68 on Moving Day, Si Woo Kim reached 9-under 207 through 54 holes of the 117th U.S. Open Championship, good enough for solo sixth on the live board with round three coming to end and just two shots behind clubhouse leader Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With R3 play completed, Kim is solo 6th, three back of leader Brian Harman.

Martin Kaymer won the 2014 PLAYERS Championship before landing the U.S. Open soon after and Korean Kim has the opportunity to match that feat in Sunday's final round following another strong lap at Erin Hills today which included six birdies against two bogeys. Kim drained his opening birdie try from 14'3" at the 1st hole but then dropped shots at 4 and 6. But he poured in five birdies after that, scribbling circles at 7, 8, 11, 13 and 15. His longest conversion came from 32 feet at 13 while he also made a 24 footer at 7. The 21-year-old set up two more chances at 17 and 18 but couldn't get it to double digits under par. He hit 11 (of 14) fairways today, found 14 greens in regulation and took 28 putts.

The 2017 PLAYERS champion Si Woo Kim styled a 2-under-par 36-34=70 during round two of the U.S. Open Championship, tossing his name inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard at 5-under 139.

The young South Korean was attacking flagsticks all day, giving himself seven birdie looks from inside 12 feet. The putter never warmed up, though, as he converted on just three of those seven chances. Luckily, he added a long-distance birdie from 20'2" at the par-4 17th to pad his scorecard and offset a pair of bogeys. Kim entered the week with an 0-for-2 record in major championships and also withdrew during his last prep event (the Memorial Tournament) due to an ankle injury. While he's not the most consistent golfer, his game rarely falters when he's clicking. He's positioned himself inside the top 10 after R2 on six occasions and produced top 20s in all those events.

World No. 32 Si Woo Kim withdrew during the third round of the Memorial Tournament due to an ankle injury.

After opening in 76-71, the 21-year-old was one of 14 players to make the cut on the number (T64). He was 2-over thru 17 holes, overshadowing two birdies with four bogeys when he called it a day after reportedly injuring his ankle playing a bunker shot. This is the South Korean's sixth mid-tourney WD in 63 career events, fifth this season in 21 starts. His next scheduled start is the U.S. Open in two weeks, where he'll be making his debut.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, World No. 75 Si Woo Kim, a pre-tourney 400/1 outright, painted a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to post 10-under 278, up three places on the day and good for a 3-shot win over runners-up Ian Poulter and Louis Oosthuizen. UPDATE: Kim vaults 47 spots to a career-high 28th in OWGR.

At 21 years of age, the South Korean is the youngest-ever to hoist the crystal in the tourney's 44-year history. He adds his second TOUR title in his 61st career event, joining the 2016 Wyndham (23 starts ago), where he was the 54-hole leader by four and won by five. The victory comes in Kim's second PLAYERS (T23/2016) and his 19th start of the season, and is a second top 10 (T10, CIMB Classic). Among a throng of other goodies, it comes with a 5-year exemption on TOUR and a 3-year exemption into the Masters. After kicking off in 69-72-68, Kim began in solo 4th, two shy of overnight co-leaders J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and only eight greens in regulation, but went 10-for-10 in scrambling and needed just 23 putts. Kim circled three birdies at 1, 7 and 9, each from between 17 and 25 feet, recording the only bogey-free lap in R4 and was blemish-free over his last 20 holes.

World No. 75 Si Woo Kim orchestrated a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to reach 7-under 209, up 13 spots to T3 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Kim is in solo 4th, two back of 54-hole co-leaders J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley.

After kicking off in 69-72, the 21-year-old began T16 on 3-under, six shy of 36-hole co-leaders Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.635 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 3.228 around-the-green. The second-year man was blemish-free 5-under thru 15 holes, circling holes 2, 9, 10 and 12, before suffering a lone bogey at the par-5 16th after putting his second in the drink. He bounced back with birdie-2 at 17 from 5'8", his fourth conventional birdie, adding a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 10th from 22'4" away. The South Korean recorded 4.070 SG: Tee-to-Green, the current leader in that stat with a cumulative 13.986, and gained 2.092 strokes on-the-green in R4, but is 74th (of 82) for the week in SGP at -2.824.
