Si Woo is a four time winner on the PGA Tour. His biggest win came at the 2017 Players Championship, where a flawless final round 69 saw him win by three strokes. Since 2016, he's finished every year inside the top 100 in the official world golf rankings. Most recently, he won the Sony Open in 2023.
Si Woo can sometimes have a temper and this was evident when he broke his putter in Round 2 of the 2021 Masters when he was in 5th position! He was forced to play the remaining holes of his 2nd round with no putter and had to use a 3 wood.

2021 Wyndham Championship
"I always come here, like so comfortable and like I can do this. Yeah, I love this place."
2021 American Express
"I have great memories with this course. So for Q-School, I passed the Q-School on this course, and then I have great memories and then that's why I feel confidence whenever I come to this course. So that helps a lot for me this week, especially I try to focus on the memories that gave me good scores, so that's why it drove me to the win."
Question: As a follow-up, the last two times you held the third-round lead you shot even par in the final round on both events. Just wondering if the experience there had made you change your strategy at all today to this final round?
"So when I missed the win, when I had the chance to have a win, I didn't play very well. I had a lot of ups and downs. So I tried to play aggressive and then that actually made me lose. So actually, my coach talked to me about it a lot and even this week we talked about it and he told me just, you know, There will be chance anytime, so you just have to keep waiting and be patient, keep composure, and just believe in yourself. So that's what I tried to do and then I tried not to be emotional and that helps me to the win."
