“ It has always been a dream of mine to play the PGA Tour, ” Kim said to Philippine Star. “ At the launch of July, I was planning on trying to get my card through the Korn Ferry Tests and now one month latterly, I’m a PGA Tour winner, so it’s enough crazy.
When I was young, I would see Tiger win on the PGA Tour, not nearly differently, so for me, that was always the thing.

Hopefully, I ’ll be then for a veritably long time ”.

Tom Kim on his name
His birth name is Joohyung Kim, but Kim decided to change it.” It’s just me being stubborn. Like, you’re supposed to let your parents name you and I was like nope, I’m going to name myself Thomas.

I loved the show as a sprat. supposedly, I really loved the train.
I was like, you know what, I’m going to name myself Thomas. And as time went on, people started calling me Tom. It was shorter, so I kind of went with Tom after that ”.

I’m a lot youngish than all the guys on the platoon, so hopefully, I can bring that youthful energy and just be a sprat out there and have all the fun we have.
As long as we come together as a platoon, we’re going to have a chance. Just be good energy out there for the platoon ”.
