Kim Si-woo Becomes Youngest Golfer to Win PGA Players Championship

Rita Gibson | 19 May, 2017, 15:16

For those trying to catch Kim in The Players Championship, and for thousands of fans who anticipated the drama this tournament so often delivers, the infamous par-3 17th hole with its island green represented the best chance that the pressure might finally get to him.

But it didn't feel like any kind of fluke as Kim masterfully negotiated the diabolical Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, shooting a bogey-free 69 to win by three shots.

This was Kim's second career PGA Tour win after the Wyndham Championship last August.

Poulter said that even though Kim put together a solid round on Saturday at The Players Championship, to put himself in contention, he was even better on Sunday.

Ian Poulter is looking forward to getting back to the revamped Wentworth when he tees it up in next week's BMW PGA Championship.

Si Woo Kim of South Korea became the youngest victor of The Players Championship with a game and nerves well beyond his 21 years. Not Kim. Once he gained an upper hand on the field, the seventh global Players champion in the last 10 years shut the door for good.

"And then the moment that I was leading, I was very confident".

"If you're on your game and playing well, that the things you do", Oosthuizen said.

Marco Rubio is praising the Trump administration for imposing sanctions on eight members of Venezuela's Supreme Court. Ambassador Olof Skoog said the Security Council "should be on top of issues that relate to preventive diplomacy".

The International team is based on the world ranking, and Kim moved up to No. 7. He's the second-highest-ranked Asian player after Hideki Matsuyama, No. 3 from Japan.

"Thanks for the invite and help, European Tour", said the Englishman. That gave the Spaniard 70 and a tie for fourth with Kyle Stanley, a co-leader after 54 holes who shot 75. But as Stanley and Holmes started back-peddling, Kim's birdies at the 1, 7 and 9 holes had him atop of the leaderboard.

Poulter, who tied Oosthuizen for second, trailed by two shots for nearly the entire back nine. A quadruple-bogey nine on the par-5 16 followed by a double bogey five at the 17 hole saw him sign for an eight over 80 - the worst final round score ever from a defending Players Champion. He has gone over $1.25 million for the year. Kim jumped up in the money list from 114th to 13th as a result.

In 2012, just two years after he began playing competitive golf as a middle school student, Kim drew attention by becoming the youngest golfer ever to make it through PGA Tour Q-School. "That's why I could do well". (AP) - Si Woo Kim made Sunday at The Players Championship look like child's play.

Kim also said he's been battling back pain since the start of the season.

"It was a big shock to the system to hit one of those nasty shanks when I've hit it as good as I have all week", Poulter said. "I was confident that I could do well here as long as I had my short game in place".

Kim recently changed his putting grip.

"It's been a tough 18 months".
