Next challenge for golf prodigy is Kim Jong

16 Mai, 2017, 13:35 | Author: Claudine Rigal

The strength of The Players Championship is the depth of its field, the size of its purse and the pedigree of so many winners. The South Korean became the youngest victor of the tournament, which featured 48 of the world's top 50 players. I just focused on myself and I didn't try to think about others' scores.

The top 10 at the end of the PGA Tour season automatically qualify for Nick Price's side and Kim can not wait to represent the International Team at Liberty National Golf Club.

South African Louis Oosthuizen, second after three rounds, sank a four-foot birdie at the par-five second to reach nine under but found water at the fourth and made double-bogey to fall back. Kim becomes the 14th different global victor of the championship and joins 2011 champ K.J. Choi as players from South Korea to win.

Si Woo Kim makes a play out of the bunker on the third hole of his stellar final round, which was completed with a score of 3-under par.

Kim had a two-shot lead heading into the back nine Sunday and was never out of the solo lead the rest of the way. The largest final-round, come-from-behind victory at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass is five shots by Justin Leonard (1998) and Henrik Stenson (2009). He missed the green 10 times and saved par each time.

Kim's victory burnished the South Korean's reputation as one of the best young talents on the PGA Tour but he knows his career will soon have to take a back seat to defending his country.

In search of his first victory on US soil, 2010 Open Championship victor Louis Oosthuizen posted a 1-over 73 in the final round to finish in a tie for runner-up, marking his best performance in seven starts in The Players Championship. He shot 60 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship last August and won by five. Kim's winning 278 tournament total is the highest since Sergio Garcia won in 2008 (283).

Not to be overlooked is how Kim reached this stage in the first place.

The golfer netted nearly $2 million in prize money, a five-year tour exemption and his very own locker at TPC Sawgrass.

More importantly, he has a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour, along with a three-year exemption to the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open.
