When we think of the young guns on the PGA Tour, Collin Morikawa quickly comes to mind, as does Viktor Hovland and Sam Burns, and of course Scottie Scheffler, and it's good to say that once again Matthew Wolff is in that conversation. By comparison, Sungjae Im seems like a grizzled veteran, already having played 100 career tournaments.
But Im is really young, younger than all of them but Wolff.
Im is also more accomplished than all but Morikawa, certainly now that he has won for the second time in his career with a runaway victory at the Shriners Children's Open on Sunday at TPC Summerlin.
The South Korean blitzed the field with a closing 9-under 62 to win by four strokes over the 22-year-old Wolff, who notched by far his best result since returning to golf over the summer.
Im is only 23, and he won't even turn 24 until right before the Masters. He now has two wins, two runners-up (including at Augusta), four thirds, 20 top-10s and 44 top-25s in those 100 starts. He moved from 29th to 21st in the world rankings, still shy of his career best of 16th.
