Weekly Recap: Si Woo Comes Through

This article is part of our Weekly Recap series.

When you read about Si Woo Kim, the word "youngest" appears often.  Sometimes it's hard to remember he's only 25 years old. After all, he is now in his sixth full season on the PGA Tour.

That allowed him to become only the fourth player with multiple PGA Tour wins before turning 22, the others being Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth. That's pretty good company.

The South Korean's first win came at the 2016 Wyndham Championship just after turning 21.

And if you go back a few more years to 2012, Kim became, again, the youngest golfer ever to graduate Q School at 17 years and 5 months. He was so young that he couldn't even join the Tour, which had a rule stipulating you had to be 18 before getting your card.

It's all amazing stuff.

This is also Kim: He has missed the cut in 36 percent of his PGA Tour starts (59 of 164), he's missed the cut in nine of 16 career majors, he's never had a top-10 in a major, he's never so much as cracked the top 25 in the world rankings and he's finished only one year inside
