The 20-year-old South Korean pro captured his first Tour win in his final opportunity last season at the Wyndham Championship. He then became a superstar with an entertaining performance at the Presidents Cup in September. But he wasn’t done yet. Last week, in his first start of the new season, Kim went out and won the Shriners Children’s Open for his second career victory.

This week, Kim will attempt the rare feat of back-to-back Tour titles in the limited-field Zozo in Japan. Kim tees off for the opening round at 9:40 p.m. ET on Wednesday for viewers in the U.S.
