- The 21-year-old followed the traditional formula for winning the Honda Classic at PGA National, an extremely strong ball striking week combined with a solid week on the greens. Im hit nearly 70 percent of greens in regulation for the week to rank second in the category and ranked first for Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green. The 2019 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year uses Titleist’s T100 irons, the most played irons on the PGA Tour this year that were also used by Cameron Smith to win the Sony Open earlier this year, while Justin Thomas carried a 4-iron of the model for his victory at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
- Unsurprisingly for a player known to tee it up at every opportunity, the Presidents Cup representative’s game is built largely on consistency. Im known as a solid ball striker and accurate driver, with his putting typically the strongest part of his game. The two-time Korn Ferry Tour winner one of the rare players at the top of the men’s game to use a centre shafted putter.
- Im uses Titleist’s Pro V1x golf ball, but never uses a number four of model due to the symbol being considered bad luck in Korea. His win the 17th from 22 PGA Tour events so far in the 2019/20 season.
