Tom Kim is one of the PGA Tour's hottest new talents. At only 22, the South Korean phenom has already won three times on the PGA Tour. 

Throughout his relatively short career, Kim has had a few changes in his caddie lineup. He started with Jacob Fleck, then moved on to Joe Skoron, and even had a brief stint with Daniel Parratt at the beginning of 2024.

For now, though, Kim has experienced looper Paul Tesori on the bag. 

Tesori is one of the most experienced caddies on the PGA Tour and notably worked with Webb Simpson for 12 years before a short stint on the bags of fellow Americans Cameron Young and Brendan Todd. 

Kim has won three PGA Tour events, including back-to-back wins at the Shriners Children's Open in 2022 and 2023. 

The young South Korean star also made history with his win at the 2022 Shriner Children's Open by becoming only the second player since Tiger Woods to win two times on the PGA Tour before turning 21.

Kim's current caddie, Tesori, enjoyed a successful career with Simpson, with the pair winning seven PGA Tour titles together, including the 2012 US Open. 

Tesori and Simpson also featured in three Ryder Cup and three President's Cup teams. 

During their time together, Simpson reached a career-high 4th in the official world golf rankings. 

Kim will be hoping to draw on Tesori's experience in order to replicate Simpson's achievements. 

Kim has already been a part of one President's Cup team in 2022. Despite finishing the event with a losing record, the media hailed him for his swashbuckling style of play, which saw him win both his foursome and fourball matches on Saturday. 

Discussing his partnership with Kim, Tesori told GolfWeek:

“I’m looking forward to what will hopefully be another long term relationship on the bag.”

“Tom is obviously extremely talented but having faith as a common denominator is something that I believe will help when golf gets difficult, which it seems to always be!”
