Kim Si-woo of South Korea celebrates after winning The Players Championship at TPC at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach Florida

Ian Poulter to play PGA Championship after European Tour invitation

When Kim Si-woo tapped in for par on the 18th green at Sawgrass to clinch victory in the Players Championship on Sunday, it represented only the fourth time in 19 PGA Tour starts this season that the 21-year old South Korean had managed to complete 72 holes at an event with a halfway cut. "He's gone clean out there today, which is extremely impressive under that pressure".

For the week, the 12th hole played to a 3.94 stroke average and ranked as the layout's 13th most hard hole.

The condemned man is often given one final request but unfortunately my plea to get out of scribbling the Tuesday column so I could nip off to buy a new semmit ahead of the big day fell on deaf ears.

It was the great Jack Nicklaus who always espoused the mantra that "success depends nearly entirely on how effectively you learn to manage the game's two ultimate adversaries: the course and yourself". 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.

The memorial includes 21-thousand names of fallen law enforcement officers dating back to 1791. Fox also honored those who have received career ending injuries in the line of duty.

"You have to respect some good golf", Poulter said.

Poulter has slipped from a career-high of fifth in the world to 197th and was seemingly without a full PGA Tour card until fellow professional Brian Gay alerted officials to a discrepancy in the points structure used for players competing on major medical extensions. He went to the turn in 40, dropped further shots at the 14th and 15th holes and then ran up an eight on the 17th and a six on the 18th.

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

"I was a little nervous before I played the final round", Kim said.

Rive said that the solar panel installer is "healthier" than it has ever been, and it is time for him to move on. Peter Rive, who was SolarCity's chief technology officer, will remain to focus on the company's solar roofs.

The 41-year-old enjoyed his best finish of the year at TPC Sawgrass just three weeks after he thought he had lost his PGA Tour card, and his share of second propelled him to 58th in the FedExCup standings after starting the week ranked 136th.

After winning The Players, Kim left Florida with a cool check for $1,890,000. "And never once did he look flustered at all". He missed the par putt, and only had one really good look at birdie the rest of the way. He ended the tournament tied for second and picked up nearly $1 million in prize money. He had to get through Tour qualifying school three times, the youngest (17 years, 5 months, 6 days) in his first go-around in 2012.

The previous youngest victor was Adam Scott who won the 2003 tournament aged 23. 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.

Kim smashed Scott's record as youngest Players Championship victor, which the Queenslander set in 2004 aged 23 years, 8 months and 12 days.
