2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
After years of setting the bar too high, Kim's price for the upcoming season is actually within a reasonable range for salary cap purposes. That's not to say that he's a great pick for the upcoming season, but his number of just over $2 million is his lowest in four seasons on the PGA Tour. He has already posted numbers of $3 million+ two times in his short time on the PGA Tour, so a jump of 50% this season is certainly possible. It's a sizable investment at over $2 million, but Kim has been pretty reliable in his four years on the PGA Tour and his upside is pretty high. Read Past Outlooks
Unable to convert 54-hole lead
August 16, 2020
Kim recorded an even-par 70 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish tied for third place.
ANALYSIS
Kim entered the final round with the lead as he was in search of his second Wyndham Championship victory, but he was overtaken after he hit a tee-shot out of bounds on the sixth hole that led to a double bogey. Kim played well for the week with his driver and irons, finishing third in SG: Approach and SG: Tee-to-green.

2013
Kim won just over $3 million in 2016 and it's been downhill ever since. Not like a ski hill, but more like a average driveway, with a slight decline. It's a very nice driveway however as though Kim's numbers have fallen in each of the past two seasons, he's managed to stay above the $2 million mark. He also won The PLAYERS Championship in 2017, which isn't too shabby. The issue with Kim has been consistency as he's shown a tendency to play well only a few times each season. As such, he's always going to be a high-risk player, especially in salary cap formats where the price tag is still over $2 million. On the positive side, he plays as much as anyone on the PGA Tour, so he's giving himself plenty of opportunities to find a hot streak.
Kim won THE Players Championship, which pretty much sums up his entire season. For a week in May, Kim was outstanding, but he didn't accomplish much before or after that victory. It's tough to gauge just how good he is or can be, because we haven't seen enough out of him yet. We know that he can play with the best, when he's at his best, but we know nothing about his determination to play well when things aren't going well. With so much uncertainty, it wouldn't be wise to spend this much money on him in salary cap leagues.
Kim was perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2015-16 season. He started the season well, like many rookies seem to do, but unlike most rookies, he got hot in the middle of summer. A crushing loss in a playoff at the Barbasol Championship didn't deter Kim at all as he picked-up his first PGA Tour win just a month later at the Wyndham Championship. The jury is still out on Kim, it's way too early to tell if he's for real or just a two-month aberration. As such, he's not a good salary cap option this season. In draft leagues he should go in the fourth or fifth round.
Kim, who also began his journey at pre-qualifying, finished in the Top 25 and ties (he tied for 20th, to be exact) at Q-School to earn his PGA TOUR card for 2013. The only problem here? He doesn’t turn 18 until June 28, and minors are not eligible for official PGA TOUR membership. This bad break of sorts is especially more penal in 2013, when the PGA TOUR has a truncated schedule that will limit playing opportunities for all. He can only get sponsor’s exemptions and attempt to Monday qualify into events until June 28 and once that day passes, he’ll be placed at the bottom of the Reshuffle List. He will really need to play well in the limited opportunities he’ll get to keep his PGA TOUR card for 2013-2014.
