Michael Kim captured the 2013 Jack Nicklaus Award and is exempt into the Memorial Tournament by virtue of that accomplishment.
Kim's is a non-member on the PGA TOUR, and his only other start of the 2013-14 season came at the Farmers Insurance Open, where he went 70-80 to miss the cut. He has made two of his three Web.com Tour cuts this season and ranks 151st on that money list. A collegiate star at Cal, much is expected over the next few years for this budding star.

Michael Kim has decided to turn professional after two-and-a-half years at the University of California.

The 2013 Jack Nicklaus Award recipient finished T56 at Q School on Tuesday, but he was already angling at the play-for-pay ranks. He'll make his first appearance as a pro at the Farmers Insurance Open on Jan. 23-26. "I kind of realized how much of a grind Q School is, and I really don’t want to do that again," he said. "I probably won’t get that many starts on the Web.com, so I’ll have to play well when I do. I just felt like it was time to move on. I feel like I’ve accomplished everything I can in college, other than a national championship." It was right around this time last year that another college stud, Jordan Spieth, left the University of Texas midterm. However, Kim's game won't necessarily parallel that of the 2013 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year. "I'm not going to be a Dustin Johnson, bombing it around the course," Kim added. "I want to be Zach Johnson -- hit it down the middle and then kill it with my short game and putting."

Michael Kim turned in a 1-over-par 71 in the third round of the U.S. Open and enters the final round at 4-over 214.

Kim moved all the way into a tie for third at even par with three holes to play in his third round, but swallowed two bogeys and a double bogey on his final three holes. Still, the final groups are finding Merion's finishing holes almost as difficult as he did, so his standing has improved while sitting in the clubhouse. On the 100th anniversary of Francis Ouimet's U.S. Open win, perhaps he could provide some fireworks of his own in the final round.
