Kim Si-woo Wins Sony Open; Continental Europe Claims Hero Cup

Kim Si-woo Wins Sony Open: South Korean Kim Si-woo needed two consecutive birdies to edge Hayden Buckley and win the PGA Tour Sony Open on Sunday at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, Hawaii. Kim carded his second-consecutive six-under-par 64, including two straight birdies in the 17th and 18th holes to finish the tournament at 18-under 262. The 27-year-old’s herculean effort was enough to overtake third-round pacesetter Buckley, who shot a two-under-par 68 for a 17-under 263 total. It was a surprise for golf fans who were expecting Buckley to win the tournament and reap the benefits of the sports picks and parlays favorite going into the final round. However, they hit a brick wall in Kim, who matched Buckley shot for shot and had enough grit to hold on to the win.

Kim Si-woo Wins Sony Open: Superb Chip Shot

The South Korean drilled a superb chip shot for birdie from 27 feet in the 17th hole to tie Buckley, who putted for birdie at the 16th. In the next hole, Kim blasted a superb iron shot out of the sand onto the green for a long eagle try. He settled for a birdie to take the lead. Buckley had two chances to force a playoff but he only mustered a par on both holes to give Kim the victory. Chris Kirk finished third at 15-under after a closing 68. Three players – Andrew Putnam, David Lipsky and England’s Ben Taylor – were tied for fourth on 14-under. Five players were tied for seventh place at 13-under.
