He came on with a bang to end 2022, winning two tournaments and becoming a bona fide star at the Presidents Cup. But success in 2023 came a little slower for Tom Kim until he won the Shriners Children’s Open in Las Vegas in October.

Although he had five top-10 finishes in 2023 prior to his victory, including a second-place finish at The Open, Kim fell just short of taking his spot in the winner’s circle until Vegas. A third-round 62 propelled him to an eventual total of 20-under-par to outlast Adam Hadwin by a stroke.

Kim is only 21 years old and would be a senior in college had he taken that route. As the PGA Tour seems to get younger and younger, Kim is certain to be at the forefront of this revolution.
