'It Was Pretty Fun Today' - Teenager Kris Kim Shoots 68 On Sparkling PGA Tour Debut


  • English teenager Kris Kim makes PGA Tour debut at CJ Cup Byron Nelson
  • Kim shoots a solid 68, finishing just five shots off the leader

In his PGA Tour debut at the CJ Cup Byron Nelson, 16-year-old English amateur Kris Kim impressed with a three-under 68, finishing just five shots off the leader, Matt Wallace. Kim, whose mother is former LPGA player Ji-Hyun Suh, chipped in twice during his round, including for an eagle on the last hole. Kim’s strong performance puts him in a good position to potentially make the cut, which would make him the fifth-youngest player to do so in a PGA Tour event. Kim’s talent adds to the growing list of young golfers making waves in the professional golf world, with 15-year-old Miles Russell recently becoming the youngest player to make the cut in a Korn Ferry Tour event. Kim’s impressive short game was on display during his round, with two chip-ins highlighting his skills in that area. Overall, Kim’s debut on the PGA Tour has been met with excitement and anticipation for what he may achieve in the future.
