Korean Kim Si-woo wins The Players Championship

Damon Campbell | 18 May, 2017, 22:39

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.

You might think after winning The Players Championship, especially after winning the championship as the youngest player ever, you'd be ready to go big and celebrate. He needed a circus shot to manage a bogey.

Si Woo Kim walked up to the 16th green at the TPC Sawgrass and couldn't resist looking across the water at an island.

"I wasn't nervous at all because I was leading", Kim said.

"I didn't expect that I could be the champion of this tournament at this young age", he said through an interpreter.

Ian Poulter has confirmed that he has accepted an invite to compete in next week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. It was only the third albatross in the history of the tournament and the first on that hole.

President Trump Is Confident That Israel And Palestine Will Find Peace
I have no idea if Trump was getting a simultaneous translation when Abbas was talking, but watch his body language. "I look forward to discussing with President Trump the best ways to advance peace", Netanyahu added.

Kim started Sunday's final round in fourth place, two shots behind overnight leaders JB Holmes and Kyle Stanley. Kim clinched the second PGA title of his career by concluding the Players 10-under 278, outpacing runners-up Ian Poulter of England and Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa by three strokes. Speaking after his maiden tour victory, the 21-year-old has resigned himself to serving his country. He only got into the tournament a few weeks ago when the PGA Tour realized a clerical oversight regarding his return from a foot injury previous year.

Kim will have to do the same unless he can win a major in the next few years.

The PGA Championship is the European Tour's flagship event, while the PGA Tour is a season of tournaments played mainly in the United States.

A run of nine pars in succession on the back nine was enough for Kim to seal victory, while Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello produced a far more spectacular finish to claim a tie for fourth with Stanley. But Kim opened his final round with a birdie and then added two more at the seventh and the ninth to get to 10-under.

A player of Korean descent has now won on Tour in every season since 2005, with Kim's victory this year joining K.J. Choi (8), Y.E. Yang (2), Sangmoon Bae (2), James Hahn (2), Kevin Na (1), Seung-Yul Noh (1), Danny Lee (1) and his own last year.

Now he's here to stay for at least the next five years, and based on his game, probably much longer.
