Michael Sim Biography
Michael Sim (born 23 October 1984) is an Australian professional golfer.
Sim was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, and moved to Australia when he was 5 years old. He was the top ranked amateur in the world in 2005 having won four titles during the year including the Sunnehanna Amateur, which boasts major winners Ben Crenshaw and Tommy Aaron amongst its list of former champions. He turned professional at the end of the year.
Sim played on the Nationwide Tour in 2006, and qualified for the PGA Tour by virtue of a 19th place finish on the end of season money list, aided by a win at PalmettoPride Classic. After a late start to the 2007 season, caused by a stress fracture of the spine, he finished 169th on the PGA Tour money list. He was granted a medical extension for 2008, but failed to win enough money in five events to retain his place on the PGA Tour, and he returned to the second tier Nationwide Tour. In April 2009, Sim's bid to return to the elite tour got off to a good start when he secured his second career victory at the Stonebrae Classic, finishing six strokes clear of the field. The following week he finished in second after losing in a playoff to Patrick Sheehan, and then in May he won the BMW Charity Pro-Am in a playoff over FabiÃ¡n GÃ³mez.
Sim played with Tiger Woods during the final round of the 2009 U. S. Open and finished in at tie for 18th. He was invited a month later by the PGA to play in the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine National Golf Club where he finished T51.
Sim won the Christmas in October Classic to earn an automatic "battlefield promotion" to the PGA Tour. The victory was his third Nationwide Tour win of 2009 and his fourth overall. With the win he also set the Nationwide Tour single season money title, earning well over half a million dollars. He was one of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings in 2009, which earned him entry into the 2010 Masters Tournament; he later withdrew from the tournament due to injury. He also won the PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit in 2009.
Sim performed moderately on the PGA Tour in 2010, with the highlight of his season being a T2 at the Farmers Insurance Open. He comfortably retained his card by finishing 65th on the money list.
