Michael Kim: in the bag

Michael Kim claimed his first PGA Tour title at the John Deere Classic, blitzing the field by eight strokes in Illinois. .

The 25-year-old American finished on -27 for the event, a tournament record.

"I feel like I've been running on fumes the entire back nine," said Kim.

"I'm just super thankful to my parents, team, coaches, friends and family. It's been a tough first half of the year but to finish off this means a lot. The last couple of weeks I felt my game was getting there, I just got off to a great start on Thursday and kept it going."
