Si Woo Kim becomes youngest victor of Players Championship

The 21-year-old produced a nerveless display to become the youngest ever victor of the tournament while Poulter had to settle for a share of second place.

A total of 66 PGA Tour golfers have earned more than $1 million over the course of the 2017 season so far, but that doesn't mean that some players aren't trying to save money when possible.

On a TPC Sawgrass course where anything can go wrong without notice, Kim was the only player to go bogey-free Sunday and closed with 3-under 69 for a three-shot victory in golf's biggest tournament this side of the majors.

Bae Sang-moon, who won two times on the PGA Tour and played in the Presidents Cup, will finish his national service in November this year and will return to the frontline of the PGA circuit. I've played good golf. He ended the tournament tied for second and picked up nearly $1 million in prize money. He now has a five year exemption on the PGA Tour, a three-year exemption to The Masters and a cheque for $1,890,000. While 2009 PGA champion Y.E. Yang and eight-time PGA Tour victor K.J. Choi completed their military requirement before turning professional, the career of 30-year-old two-time PGA Tour victor Sang-Moon Bae has been put on hold.

Si Woo Kim may have won one of golf's most prestigious tournaments on Sunday but he might be taken away from us just as he announced himself to the world. Other than Kim, Wang Jeung-hun and An Byeong-hun are listed at 57th and 58th in the world ranking as of Sunday. He's basically been playing out here for four years.

"I really wish we could have that benefit", said Kim, whose only get-out looks to be Olympic success in Tokyo in 2020.

Adam Scott secured his fourth top-10 finish at TPC Sawgrass.

Not only did Kim not make a bogey in the final round, he also lead the field in scrambling, getting it up and down from everywhere.

"But I think I've still got some work to do".

"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.

The bogey on the 18th was only the second for Poulter over the final 46 of the tournament.

Australia's world No.3 Jason Day claimed an unwanted record for the worst final round by a defending champion since the Players moved to TPC Sawgrass in 1982, signing for an 80. Not only did Ian Poulter, Louis Oosthuizen, Lucas Glover or third round co-leaders Kyle Stanley and J.B. Holmes never catch Kim, all of them except Poulter struggled to stay within reasonable striking distance.

Oosthuizen held the outright lead after he birdied the second and Stanley and Holmes - who slumped to a closing 84 which included an eight on the 17th - both bogeyed the first.

That wasn't the case in Rafeal Cabrera Bello's round, however, as he holed out from 181 yards for the first albatross in tournament history on the 16th, then followed that with another two on the 17th, before holing from 35 feet for par on the last after hooking his tee shot into the water.
