His first season on the PGA Tour was not successful, and he failed to secure his PGA Tour card for 2006. This meant that Wi played 2006 on the Asian and Nationwide Tours, before gaining his place back on the PGA Tour for 2007, by succeeding at qualifying school.  

    Wi achieved a few runner-up placed on the PGA Tour, including the David Toms at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, in 2011 and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in2012
