South Korea’s Sungjae Im extends the PGA Tour’s youth movement, but more significantly, he signals that this could be the start of something big from a nation that has produced so many women’s champions
At 21, Sungjae Im wins his first title on the PGA Tour after a rookie-of-the-year season. Im’s victory in the Honda Classic prompts co-hosts Bob Bubka and Jay Randolph Jr. to wonder whether we might be witnessing the leading edge of a movement similar to what has occurred over the past couple of decades on the LPGA, with a wave of women’s champions from South Korea. Bubka and Randolph preview the Arnold Palmer Invitational and discuss other news in the game. In the feature interview, Bubka talks with Morning Read founder Alex Miceli about the latest nominees for the World Golf Hall of Fame.
