When South Koreans talk about golf, you normally hear about the success of many LPGA Korean players. It’s not often you hear a Korean name in the PGA winners circle (thinking of the days of KJ Choi, James Hahn and Si Woo Kim to name a few).
Last week at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill., a new name entered the winners’ circle, Korean-American Michael Kim.
In his first PGA tour victory in 84 career starts Kim won just over $1 million and has a two-year exemption on the PGA tour. He won by eight strokes at 27 under par on his 25th birthday weekend.
