2024 Fantasy Outlook
Ghim failed to capitalize on the 2022 success that included a T6 in the Players Championship. Although he played a heavy schedule once again and made more cuts (54.8 percent), Ghim failed to seriously contend in any event. His best results came in May and June, where he carded three top-20 finishes, including a $335,000 cash in the Travelers Championship. Although Ghim finished 1117th in the FedEx cup rankings last season, he'll enter his sixth year as a pro in search of his first career win. Read Past Outlooks

2019
Ghim is a young player that benefits from both strong play and a busy schedule. This past year represented the 26-year-old’s third season on the PGA Tour, and he appears to be developing into a top 150 mainstay. As mentioned, Ghim plays quite a bit (29 events) and converts over half of his cut appearances, but he has yet to truly contend in a large event. His best finish - by far - in 2022 was a T6 at The Players. He will need to start competing on Sundays if he wishes to continue climbing the ranks.
Ghim impressed in his first full season on the PGA Tour. He posted a total of nine top-25s and showed strong ball-striking potential. The 25-year-old ranked top-25 on tour in SG: approach, SG: tee-to-green, driving accuracy, GIR percentage and proximity to the hole. Ghim was also top-25 in scrambling and birdie average. He is definitely one of the top breakout candidates for 2021-22.
Ghim has a stellar amateur career but has failed to live up to expectations and translate that success at the professional level. In his first full season with status, Ghim only made 5 of 11 cuts and failed to post a top-10 result. Ghim also didn't light up the Korn Ferry Tour in his one season with just three top-10 results in one season. He is only 24-years-old so there's plenty of time for improvement, but he's not much more than a dart throw at this point.
Ghim has played 13 events on the PGA Tour, but he's a true rookie this season. He was a rookie on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2018-19 and played well enough to get the call to the big leagues after just one season. Ghim looks to have some potential as he fared pretty well in those 13 starts, with four top-25s and earnings more than $350k. Throw in some experience from the Korn Ferry Tour and Ghim just might be in the running for ROY by the end of this season.
