Kim Seong-hyun, who obtained the first PGA Tour seed in his life with high grades on the Korn Ferry Tour (Part 2) in the 2021-2022 season, made a surprise performance by entering the top 4 after 3 games of his debut at the Shriners Children’s Open in October last year, following Kim Joo-hyung. It foreshadowed the birth of a large rookie. In addition, at the Sony Open, where he participated for the first time in the new year, he tried to win his first PGA Tour victory with stable performance throughout the four days. The result is a tie for 12th place.

Kim Seong-hyun, a former national representative, moved to Japan in 2019 and debuted on the Japan Professional Golf Tour (JGTO). However, when the Japanese tour was suspended in the aftermath of Corona 19 in 2020, he turned to Korea and enjoyed the joy of winning the KPGA Championship, which he participated in from the Monday qualifiers. In the 63-year history of the tournament, it was the first record of winning the preliminaries. He subsequently won the 2021 JGTO PGA Championship and then made a name for himself as a player who won both Korea and Japan championships at the same time.
He also recorded a dream score of 58 in the final round of the JGTO 2021 Golf Partners Pro-Am Tournament. Only Jim Furyk holds this record on the PGA Tour.
