Im ends season just outside top 10 at Tour ChampionshipKorean youngster Im Sung-jae has wrapped up his second PGA Tour season with an up-and-down round.
Im recorded six birdies against four bogeys and a double bogey Sunday.
He started the round in sixth place and came up just a stroke shy of notching his eighth top-10 finish of the season out of 26 tournaments.
It was an otherwise solid season for the 2018-2019 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. He earned his first career title at the Honda Classic in March, just before the tour pressed pause during the coronavirus pandemic. After the season resumed in June, Im appeared in a dozen tournaments and recorded two top-10s, while missing the cut four times.
Last season Im was the only freshman to qualify for the Tour Championship, open only to the top 30 players in the FedEx Cup points in the playoffs. He tied for 19th at last year's Tour Championship and also 19th in the FedEx Cup standings.
This time he wrapped up the FedEx Cup race in 11th.
There's no rest for the weary members of the tour, as the 2020-2021 season starts Thursday with the Safeway Open in Napa, California.
