Rising star Kris Kim will make his DP World Tour debut when he tees it up in the Betfred British Masters hosted by Sir Nick Faldo at The Belfry from August 29 – September 2, 2024.

The 16-year-old English amateur starred in Europe’s victory at last year’s Junior Ryder Cup in Italy and earlier this month made history as the youngest player to make the cut in a PGA TOUR event for 11 years when he made the weekend at THE CJ CUP Byron Nelson.

Kim, last year’s winner of the Boys’ Amateur title as well as the European Individual Championship and McGregor Trophy, is regarded as the outstanding teenage prospect in English men’s golf and showed his prowess in beating highly-rated American Miles Russell 5&4 in the Singles at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club.

“I am so excited to play at The Belfry later this year and I am incredibly grateful to the DP World Tour for the opportunity,” he said.

“The British Masters is an event I have grown up watching and to have the chance to play is a dream come true. The event celebrates the best of British golf and having Sir Nick Faldo as the host is really cool. Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to spend some time with him and learn from his experience.

“I feel like I learned so much from playing on the PGA TOUR earlier this month and spending some time around the DP World Tour players will be priceless for my future, so I’m really looking forward to it.”

The Betfred British Masters hosted by Sir Nick Faldo will be the DP World Tour’s 21st event held at The Belfry. The first tournament played at the Sutton Coldfield venue was the Lada English Golf Classic, won by the late, great Seve Ballesteros.

The Tour made a return to The Belfry after a 13-year absence in 2020, with the venue hosting a tournament each year since.
