Most recently, one of the youngest golfers on the PGA Tour, pleasantly surprised everyone with a win at the 2017 PLAYERS Championship!

THE PLAYERS Championship Winner of 2017

In 2017, Kim Si-woo became the youngest winner of THE PLAYERS Championship at the age of 21. He was also the youngest player to graduate from the PGA Tour’s qualifying school at the age of 17. However, he could not become an official PGA Tour member until 18 at which he began his professional career in the middle of the 2013 season.

Kim’s first win on the PGA Tour came at the 2016 Wyndham Championship and his second was THE PLAYERS Championship 2017. He became the second Korean to win the title after K. J. Choi in 2011.
