Golfer Im Sung-jae is set to compete in next month's Presidents Cup in Australia.
International team captain Ernie Els on Thursday included Im in the roster for the match, as one of four golfers who can be selected by the captain out of the total 12. Im will be the sixth Korean to participate in the event.
Jason Day of Austrailia, Adam Hadwin of Canada and Joaquin Niemann of Chile have been also named.
Established in 1994, the Presidents Cup is a men's golf competition between a team representing the U.S. and another representing the rest of the world except Europe. The international team has defeated the U.S. only once, in 1998.
The event will be held in Melbourne on Dec. 12-15.
