Kim is in the field for this week's Quicken Loans National.
Kim withdrew from last week's event for an unspecified reason -- likely either soreness or rest -- but he will return to action this week at TPC Potomac. Kim's injuries have certainly affected his play this year, but he has proven he can produce a quality result when he is feeling good, winning THE PLAYERS Championship and finishing 13th in his last start at the U.S. Open.
Kim (undisclosed) withdrew from this week's Travelers Championship, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.
Kim will take the upcoming week off from competition after notching his best career finish at a major. He placed T13 at the U.S. Open on Sunday despite final-round struggles, and he's now climbed to No. 29 in the Official World Golf Ranking. His next chance to return will be at the Quicken Loans National in late June.
Kim closed with a three-over 75 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish six-under and tied for 13th.
Kim, who withdrew from his previous start at the Memorial Tournament due to an ankle injury, bounced back nicely at Erin Hills as he posted his best career finish at a major. The 21-year-old failed to card a single birdie during his final round, however, falling into a tie for 13th. He was eighth among the field in SG: tee-to-green, hitting 74 percent of his greens in regulation. Kim will be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship where he snuck into the top 25 last year.

Kim, who withdrew from his previous start at the Memorial Tournament, appears to be past the ankle injury that forced him to the sideline. Other than a win at the PLAYERS Championship, Kim's 2016-17 campaign has been plagued by back issues and mediocre play. He's just 197th on Tour in GIR percentage, but remains inside the top 35 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
Kim was forced to withdraw from the Memorial after injuring his ankle hitting a bunker shot.
Kim has been plagued by a back injury for a good portion of the season, and he is now dealing with another setback just weeks before the U.S. Open. The extent of his latest injury is uncertain, so it remains to be seen if it will threaten his availability for the season's second major.
