Recording his first PGA TOUR victory, Joohyung Kim won the Wyndham Championship on Sunday, with a 9-under par 61 in the final round at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. The victory came after Kim started the tournament with a quadruple-bogey 8 on the first hole. Kim came back to finish the first round with a 3-under 67 and added rounds of 64 and 68 before Sunday’s 61, tying the second-lowest nine-hole score in PGA Tour history.
The 20-year-old Kim, sponsored by CJ Logistics, is the second-youngest PGA TOUR winner since World War II, and the first player born in the 2000s to record a TOUR win. With the victory, Kim is eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs and in the conversation about the international team for the Presidents Cup next month.
Sungjae Im, another CJ Logistics-sponsored golfer, tied for second, finishing five strokes behind Kim. Im’s T-2 finish moved him into the top 10 of the FedEx Cup standings for the regular season. He also finished T-2 at the 3M Open in July.
