Si Woo Kim is the highest-ranked player in the FedEx Cup standings in this week’s field.

He still has work to do to make it to East Lake, though, so accruing some points at a comfy tour stop makes sense.

Kim’s win in his second appearance at the Wyndham Championship highlights three top-fives in Greensboro.

After missing the cut in his debut at Sedgefield in 2013, Kim came back three years later and won the whole thing at the ripe age of 19. Not only did he win, but he blitzed the field for a five-shot victory. Kim fired 68-60-64-67 with his second round tying the course record at the time.

Brandt Snedeker shot a 59 in 2019 for the current record.

Kim can be a mercurial player, so fittingly he missed the cut in his return to Greensboro in 2018. He did not play the Wyndham in 2017.

The South Korean rebounded here in 2019 with solo fifth (66-65-68-64), T-3rd in 2020 (65-65-62-70), and T-2nd (66-68-67-64) in 2021. Kim was part of the monstrous six-man playoff a couple years ago.

He made the cut last year after opening in 69-68. Kim posted 72 in round three and withdrew with an illness after.

Kim is coming off a week of rest following a missed cut at The Open Championship. He’s a winner this PGA Tour season at the Sony Open in Hawaii and has three top-fives. Kim finished T-2nd at the AT&T Byron Nelson and fourth at a designated event, the Memorial Tournament.

The 28-year-old is hitting lots of fairways, which sets up well for Sedgefield. He’s 10h in driving accuracy (67.5%) and 14th in strokes gained per round tee-to-green (1.125).
