Si Woo Kim wins The Players Championship

Si Woo Kim carded a bogey-free final round of 69 to become the youngest ever victor of The Players Championship - at just 21 years old.

"Korean female golfers are doing so well in the LPGA and I wanted to show that male golfers also have what it takes to play competitively in the USA tour", said Kim, who has moved up to 28th in the ranking from 75th as of Sunday.

South Korea's Si Woo Kim finished on 10 under par, three shots ahead of Ian Poulter and Louis Oosthuizen to lift the prize of nearly £1.5million.

Giving the 21-year-old his second PGA Tour victory and a hefty prize of $1.89 million. He shot a final round of 69.

Even though he was eight shots out of the lead, it was his best finish at The Players Championship.

He then returned to the Web.com Tour until he locked up his PGA Tour card for the 2015-16 season by finishing 23rd on the 2015 Web.com Tour priority list. "Never once did he look flustered at all". If you can do that around this golf course, you can outscore everyone. "You have to respect some good golf, and that's exactly what he's done".

"I saw it kick off the bank of the bunker and I was a bit anxious at the beginning because I kind of felt that it shot a little too fast", Cabrera Bello said. Oosthuizen said that's the key on the Stadium Course but what Kim did on Sunday was nonetheless impressive. He followed that with birdie on 17, then holed a long par putt from just off the 18th green.

The bogey was only his second over the final 46 holes of the tournament.

"It's a very uncomfortable tee shot because the mounds where you want to land the ball between the bunker and the green are taking the ball off into the water and so there's a kind of a soft edge that as a player doesn't feel good".

"For me, to have played well last week and locked up everything in America has now freed my summer up and meant I can come back and play in some of the big events in Europe, which Im really looking forward to", he told the European Tour's website.

Honoring Law Enforcement this National Police Week
Each year the nation loses an average of 140-160 law enforcement officers in the line of duty. May 15 is designated nationally as Peace Officers Memorial Day.

But the South African ran up a double bogey on the fourth and dropped another shot on the ninth, before following an eagle on the 11th with further bogeys on the 13th and 14th.

Rory McIlroy continued to find the going tough at the Players Championship as he finished well adrift of the leaders. He ended the tournament tied for second and picked up nearly $1 million in prize money.

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.

Kim is the youngest ever to win the tournament, surpassing Adam Scott who won the tournament at the youthful age of 23 when he finished ahead of Padraig Harrington in 2004.

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. He earned a card at age 17, but he could not become a PGA Tour member until he turned 18 the following June.
