Kim too strong at Wyndham


South Korea's Kim Si-woo carded a three-under 67 to record a five-stroke victory Luke Donald at the Wyndham Championship.

The 21-year-old picked up shots at the first, fifth, eighth and ninth holes to reach the turn in 31, but as he closed in on his first PGA Tour title, he bogeyed the tenth, 13th and 14th.

He recovered with a birdie on the 15th before a weather delay meant he had to wait before returning to the course, picking up another birdie on the 18th to sign for a 67.

"(I) feel confidence so I don't have any fear to attacking the pin," said Kim.

Victory means Kim is up to 15th in the FedEx Cup and he is looking forward to be in the running to challenge for the $10million bonus.

“Before this tournament I was tough to gain that top 30 but right now I can get in so I’m very happy about that and want to get through it,” Kim said.

Donald pocked up three shots on the front nine as he looked to catch Kim but his hopes of victory were all but ended when he bogeyed the tenth before a run of four-successive pars. Although he managed to birdie the 15th, the Englishman could not threaten Kim and he too signed for a 67 to finish five strokes back but one stroke ahead of Hideki Matsuyama and Brandt Snedeker.

"You had to play a perfect round of golf to catch him. If he did what he has been doing all week, he's really, really tough to catch," Donald said.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell finished in a share of fifth on 14-under alongside Johnson Wagner, Billy Horschel, Rafael Cabrera Bello and Brett Stegmaier.
