Im was the PGA TOUR’s Rookie of the Year last season, the first Rookie of the Year from Asia. In his first year on the TOUR, Im finished in the top 25 in 16 of 35 starts and was the only rookie in the TOUR Championship field. He made the Presidents Cup team as a captain’s pick for the International Team. Two seasons ago, at age 19, Im was the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year.
Korea’s Sungjae Im has recorded his first PGA TOUR victory, winning The Honda Classic last week in south Florida. The 21-year-old golfer, sponsored by CJ Logistics, is the youngest player to win the tournament.
