First-round leader and World No. 148 Whee Kim spun a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to match Alex Cejka and Patrick Cantlay on 9-under 275, and then lost to Cantlay's par with double bogey-6 on the second playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death after an errant tee shot and penalty drop. UPDATE: Kim jumps 34 spots to a career-high 114th in OWGR.
This was Kim's third cash in three appearances, brushing aside a previous-best T49 in 2015. He improves to 4-for-4 on the season with two top 10s, both doubling as top 5s, arriving off solo 4th at THE CJ CUP two weeks ago. It's the 25-year-old's second runner-up finish in 81 career starts, first in extra time, joining a T2 at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude. After kicking off in 65-72-72, the South Korean began T8, five back of 54-hole co-leaders Beau Hossler and J.J. Spaun. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome with Cantlay, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 2.989 SG: Putting, No. 1 for the week in SGP at 8.635. Kim was blemish-free 6-under thru 17 holes, circling 1, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 16, five from between 11 and 25 feet, before a walk-off bogey-5 in freshening winds. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR with 28 total putts. Nov 5 - 8:35 PM
