Joint runner-up behind Brian Harman at Hoylake in only his second Open appearance.

Joint runner-up behind Brian Harman at Hoylake in only his second Open appearance.

The first at St Andrews came as the second youngest winner of the Asian Tour Order of Merit, and was swiftly followed by his first two victories on the PGA Tour.

He captured the Wyndham Championship by five after a scintillating closing 61 and then the Shriners Children’s Open by three. That included a third-round 62.

In between he won his first Presidents Cup cap, recording victories there alongside KH Lee and Si-woo Kim, and in October he successfully defended the Shriners title to move just outside the world’s top 10.

His Asian Tour title was clinched aged 19 at the SMBC Singapore Open, where four spots were on offer as part of The Open Qualifying Series and where he finished joint runner-up to Thailand’s Sadom Kaewkanjana a week after winning the Singapore International.

It was at the same event in 2020 that he earned a place at Royal St George's, finishing fourth, but Covid restrictions did not allow him to play.

In 2022 he came third in the Genesis Scottish Open, his first taste of true links golf, and would have been in a play-off with Xander Schauffele if he had birdied rather than bogeyed the final hole.
