And it wasn't just that hole.

He stuffed his tee shot to 5 feet on the par-3 17th for birdie, and after hooking his tee shot into the water on the 18th, he rolled in a long putt from off the 18th green for par.

"You have to respect some good golf and that's exactly what he's done", said the Englishman, who played his last seven holes at 2-over.

"I would have loved to have won last week, and it's still a disappointment not to have got that win, but the result means I can come back over and play in the BMW PGA Championship, and plan my summer schedule, and it will obviously be great to play in front of the British fans again".

Kim's second PGA Tour victory earned him US$1.89 million (US$1=W1,123).

After winning The Players, Kim left Florida with a cool check for $1,890,000.

"I haven't decided when, but I have five years of exemption, so we will see", said Kim, whose only other victory on the US PGA Tour came at last year's Wyndham Championship. "I didn't expect that I could be the champion of this tournament at this young age", Kim told a news conference.

It wasn't a dream, even though he played so flawlessly and with so little suspense that he could easily have put everyone else to sleep.

"Overall there was lots of good stuff for me", said Scott, after his fourth top-10 finish in the Players.

McIlroy is set to undergo an MRI scan today to determine the extent of an injury which hampered his efforts at Sawgrass.

The excitement, good and bad, came from everyone else.

Poulter sure did his part.

While there was some frustration at not being able to overhaul the leader it's still a far cry from three weeks ago when Poulter thought he may have lost his PGA Tour card. Ian Poulter pulled within a stroke of the champion, but he too fall apart on the back nine.

He was forced to take a penalty stroke but then nearly holed out with a wedge from 115 yards to leave himself with a tap-in bogey. Instead, he tapped in for bogey.

Black Caps beat Ireland despite maiden O'Brien ton
Peter Chase could not continue his good early season form, going for 74 runs and taking his only wicket in the last over. Worker, in only his third global , was the more patient while Taylor scored at nearly a run-a-ball.

Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain was never going to win, but it will be hard to forget how he finished.

84 Score of third-round co-leader J.B. He started Sunday in a tie for first.

Reigning Masters champion Garcia's ace could only help him finish tied for 13th on six-over-par.

The smart money, if an worldwide player overtook American co-leaders J.B. Holmes and Kyle Stanley, was on veterans such as Poulter, Oosthuizen, Adam Scott (the previous youngest victor, at 23 in 2004) or Masters champion Sergio Garcia. "They say you need experience to do well at the majors, but if I can study the course beforehand and prepare accordingly, I think it's possible (to capture a major)". "And that's exactly what he's done".

There are still three more majors and a World Golf Championship remaining among tournaments that offer big ranking points.

Ian Poulter hopes to use his second place in the Players Championship as a "stepping stone" for the rest of the season after making the most of his second chance at Sawgrass.
