Si Woo Kim youngest Players Championship victor, Ian Poulter second at Sawgrass

All that could stop him was the final two holes, when Kim had a two-shot lead and faced a tee shot to an island green, and then a closing hole with water all the way down the left side.

Kim Si-woo became the youngest Players Championship victor after triumphing by three shots on Sunday.

"It's still unbelievable that I won this championship and I am very excited I'm the youngest champion for this tournament and I'm very honored to be that", Kim said.

"Money matters, world ranking points matter, and I get it", Chamblee said.

"I've had the kids up here all weekend and had some fun on the beach and it's kind of taken my mind off things. That's why I could do well".

Kim began the day two shots back of JB Holmes and Kyle Stanley, but a birdie on the first hole on Sunday moved him up the leaderboard as the others faltered in the blustery conditions.

Kim claimed his second win on the PGA Tour in just his second appearance in the tournament after finishing tied for 23rd a year ago in his debut at The Players.

McIlroy, who will have an MRI scan on Monday after suffering a recurrence of the back problem which ruled him out for seven weeks earlier this season, carded four birdies and three bogeys in a 71 to finish one under par, with world number one Dustin Johnson two over after a 74 which included five dropped shots in the last six holes.

In doing so, Kim became the youngest victor of THE PLAYERS Championship in history.

"When I look back and I reflect on this week, it's been a big week".

South Korean Kim Si-woo has rallied to capture The Players Championship, one of the biggest tournaments on the PGA Tour.

Kim, almost two years younger than Adam Scott when the Australian won in 2004, is also the first player from Asia to win twice on the PGA Tour before the age of 22.

Kim gets $1.89 million for his second PGA Tour victory, and a three-year exemption to the Masters. 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. However, due to tour rules, Kim couldn't become a full-time member until he turned 18, which he did in the summer of 2013.

Two weeks ago, Poulter thought he had lost his PGA Tour card until officials realized a clerical oversight that restored his status and even gave him a spot in The Players Championship. He even admitted he shanked his second shot on the last hole, sending the ball way off in the right trees.

Adding up to his rude behaviour Mann indicated that the party's team acted like a "mohalla cricket team". He said he would reach out to those upset with decisions, including his appointment.

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.

It was a horror final round for Day, scoring two-over through his first nine holes before a disastrous quadruple-bogey nine at the 16th and a double-bogey at the famous par-3 17th to score eight over for the round. "But the fourth shot was pretty special, from one of the worst shots I've ever hit to one of the very best".

"I know he hit a couple of incredible shots yesterday to get himself out of trouble, driver off the deck on 14 was a pretty impressive shot".

His best hope was a mistake from Kim, who played bogey-free for a three-shot victory.

Poulter went 39 consecutive holes without a bogey and he was tied for the lead until Kim made a 25-foot birdie putt on No. 7.

Holmes wasn't alone. Defending champion Jason Day closed with an 80, keeping very much in tact the streak of no victor ever repeating in the Players.

It was the highest score - by five strokes - among 54-hole leaders in tournament history.
