Jeong Eum caves in; Yoon Jin explodes

When South Koreans talk about golf, you normally hear about the success of many LPGA Korean players. It’s been a while since we’ve heard a Korean name in the PGA winners circle, since the days of KJ Choi, James Hahn and Si Woo Kim, to name a few.

Last week at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois, a new name got into the winners circle: Korean American Michael Kim. Kim had his first PGA tour victory in 84 career starts, winning just over $1 million and has a two-year exemption on the PGA tour. It was his 25th birthday weekend and he won by eight strokes at 27 under par.
