Kris Kim

After becoming a sensation on the PGA Tour at age sixteen, Kris Kim will now debut at the British Masters.

At the CJ Cup Byron Nelson earlier this month, Kim—the son of former LPGA golfer Ji-Hyun Suh—became the youngest player on the PGA Tour to make the cut in nine years.

On a sponsor’s invitation, the teenager put off studying for his GCSEs to compete in Texas. Kim can now look forward to competing in the British Masters, hosted by Nick Faldo, at The Belfry from August 29 to September 1.

The youngster declared: “I am so excited to play at The Belfry later this year… The British Masters is an event I have grown up watching and to have the chance to play is a dream come true.”

Celebrating the best of British Golf 

For Kim, the British Masters is not merely a competition. He admitted: “The event celebrates the best of British golf and having Sir Nick Faldo as the host is really cool. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to spend some time with him and learn from his experience.” 

The athlete also expressed that he had learned more than enough from the PGA Tour, making him prepared for what’s to come. 

“I feel like I learned so much from playing on the PGA Tour earlier this month and spending some time around the DP World Tour players will be priceless for my future, so I’m really looking forward to it,” he added. 

In 2023, Kim won the McGregor Trophy, the European Individual Championship, and the Boys’ Amateur title. He also finished undefeated in the Junior Ryder Cup in Italy, leading Europe to a victory over the United States.
