Sungjae Im

He had six top-five finishes.
At the end of 2017 finished second in the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament, two strokes behind medalist Lee McCoy.
2018 Notes: Played in 25 Korn Ferry Tour events, making 20 cuts. In his first start on the Korn Ferry Tour, won the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic by four strokes over Carlos Ortiz. Im became the 16th player in Korn Ferry Tour history to win on his first start. At age 19 years, 9 months, and 17 days, became the second-youngest champion in the tour's history behind Jason Day (19 years, 7 months, and 26 days). The next week continued his good play as he finished second at the Bahamas Great Abaco Classic. In the history of the Korn Ferry Tour, the second-best back-to-back rookie starts were only beaten by Ben Kohles, who won his first two Korn Ferry Tour starts in 2012. Im claimed another runner-up finish at the Knoxville Open, three strokes behind winner Stephan Jaeger, and then again at the Pinnacle Bank Championship, two strokes behind winner David Skinns. At the WinCo Food Portland Open, Im led after 54 holes and held on with a final-round 67 for his second win of the year. Went wire-to-wire as the money-list leader in the Regular Season and became the first player since 1990 to win the Tour's Regular Season's first and last event. His earnings of $534,325 were the second-highest on the Korn Ferry Tour (Michael Sim won $644,142 in 2009), and he earned a PGA Tour card for 2019. Was the Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.
2019 Notes: Played in 35 PGA Tour events, making 26 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Placed 19th in the FedExCup standings. In his first start of the season, finished T-4th at the Safeway Open, one stroke out of the Tway/Moore/Snedeker playoff. Closed with birdies on two of his last three holes in the final round. At the Waste Management Phoenix Open, recorded four rounds in the 60s and finished T-7th. Finished T-3rd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, three strokes behind winner Francesco Molinari. As one of the top-three finishers inside the top-10 not otherwise eligible for the British Open, Im earned a spot in the field at Royal Portrush. The next week, finished T-4th at the Valspar Championship, two strokes behind winner Paul Casey. Was T-7th at the Corales Puntacana Resort Championship, and shot a final-round 64 to finish 7th at the RBC Candian. He placed T-6th at the Wyndham Championship, and in the FedExCup playoffs, he finished T-38th at the Northern Trust, T-11th at the BMW Championship, and 19th at the Tour Championship. Im was awarded the Rookie of the Year award. Played in the President Cup for the first time and won twice, lost once, and halved a match. Defeated Gary Woodland in his singles match, 4 & 3.
2020 Notes: Played in 26 PGA Tour events, making 21 cuts with seven top-10 finishes. Was 11th in the FedExCup standings. Lost to Sebastian Munoz in a playoff at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He was T-3rd at the Zozo Championship, six strokes behind Tiger Woods. Posted a T-10th at the American Express. Won his first PGA Tour title in his 50th career start, shooting a final-round 66 to win The Honda Classic by a stroke over Mackenzie Hughes. At age 21 years, 337 days, he became the second player aged 21 or younger to win in 2020, joining Joaquin Niemann, who won at The Greenbrier. The next week, he finished 3rd at Arnold Palmer Invitational, shooting 74-73 over the weekend, two behind winner Tyrrell Hatton. In his first event after the break, he finished T-10th at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Was T-9th at the Wyndham Championship. In the FedExCup playoffs, missed the cut at the Northern Trust, and finished T-56th at the BMW Championship and 11th at the Tour Championship.
One big disappointment for Im was the postponement of the 2020 Olympics. That's because all Korean men are required to enlist for military service by age 28 and have to serve for 21 months. But if Im plays in the Olympics next year and wins a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal, he could bypass that service, which he would like to do.
