Luke Donald fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the weather-delayed final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap his fifth appearance on 16-under 264, up one spot to solo second, five in arrears to champion Si Woo Kim.
The 38-year-old's runner-up is his 15th in 308 career events (303 as a pro), and second this season, joining a T2 at the RBC Heritage, his ONLY other top 10 in 2015-16. He was chasing his sixth PGA TOUR title, first since the 2012 Transitions Championship. The Englishman began the final round in a three-way T3 on 13-under, five back of 54-hole leader Kim. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered just six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, circling five birdies against two bogeys (failed scrambles). For the week, he was 74th (of 75) in SG: Off-the-Tee (-3.403), but was No. 1 in SG: Approach-the-Green with a dizzying 14.004. The Englishman connected four red numbers for the first time this season (20 starts), and first time since a previous-best T26 here LAST YEAR.
