Im, Kim, Matsuyama lead Asia’s charge in play-offs

Memphis: The FedEx Cup play-offs begin at the FedEx St Jude Championship today with Asia’s magnificent seven, led by South Koreans Im Sung-Jae and Kim Joo-Hyung and Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama spearheading the charge to deliver a first ever winner from the region.

Since the FedEx Cup was inaugurated in 2007 as the PGA Tour’s season-long prize, the best Asian finish has so far been achieved by South Korean KJ Choi when he came in fourth in the first year.

Japan’s Matsuyama, who enters his ninth successive play-offs in 11th position, has a career-best of eighth place in 2017 after he concluded the regular season ranked No.1, while South Korea’s Im, making his fourth play-offs in 10th position, had a close brush in 2020 when he entered the weekend at the Tour Championship in second place before eventually finishing 11th.
