Tom Kim

Joo-hyung Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea, and is the son of a professional golfer, Kim Chang-ik, who played on the Buy.com Tour before becoming a teaching professional. As a result, Kim lived in various countries including China, Australia, the Philippines, and Thailand for a number of years. His father started him in golf at the age of six and at 11 he decided to become a pro as he wanted to become like his hero Tiger Woods. Kim once saw Tiger play in Australia and had him sign his cap. To balance golf and studies, Kim was home-schooled in the lead-up to his professional career. While growing up in Australia, Kim was looking around for a suitable first name and chose Tom as he was a fan of the Thomas the Tank Engine television series.
In 2018 he won the Philippine Amateur Open Championship and the W Express RVF Cup Amateur Championship. Kim turned professional in June 2018, playing on the Philippine Golf Tour.
2019 Notes: Started his year on the Asian Development Tour. In March was T-4th in back-to-back events in Malaysia at the PGM ADT Johor Championship and PGM UMW ADT Championship. Was T-9th at the PGM ADT Penang Championship.

He then won the Raya Pakistan Open by nine shots in October. His third win gave him an automatic promotion to the Asian Tour for the rest of 2019. In November, he won the Panasonic Open India, becoming, at 17 years and 149 days, the second youngest professional to win on the Asian Tour. The event was reduced to 54 holes because of smog. He won $126,679.50 and was 25th in the Asian Tour order of merit.
2020 Notes: Started playing on the Asian Tour and then played in Korea. He has played on various golf courses in different conditions. He was not born into a well-to-do family, so he had to work really hard to receive sponsorships and reach the level he has achieved. Kim didn't even have his own set of customized golf clubs for the first time until after he signed a sponsorship with Titleist in December 2019. Now at 94th in the world rankings (before WGC-FedEx), he said his goal is to play on the PGA Tour in the U.S. and grab the No.1 ranking in the world. His role models are Woods and Korean golfer Sungjae Im. The PGA Championship was Kim's first event outside of Korea, Asia, or New Zealand. Also, Kim will be the second-youngest PGA Championship competitor in this millennium at 18 years, 1 month, 16 days. The youngest was Ryo Ishikawa at 17 years, 10 months, and 4 days old when he played in 2009. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship. Had a successful year despite COVID, won his first title in Korea at the KPGA Gunsan CC Open by two shots. The victory made him the youngest golfer to win the tournament at 18 years and 21 days old, beating the previous record of Lee Sang-hee who had won the NH Nonghyup Championship at the age of 19 years, six months, and 10 days in 2011. Ended his year with three events on the PGA Tour, his best finish was T-33rd at Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship.
