Personal


  • Grew up playing The Club at Nine Bridges which later became the host of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES.
  • Played junior golf tournaments with Si Woo Kim in South Korea growing up.
  • First came to the United States in 2017 to compete in the second stage of Korn Ferry Q-School
  • Never uses #4 golf ball because the number is a symbol of bad luck and sounds similar to the word "death" in South Korea.
