"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.

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