Si Woo Kim earned his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday at the Wyndham Championship, and he made sure to run away from the field in the process after a narrow miss in a playoff loss to Aaron Baddeley at the Barbasol Championship in July.

Kim finished at 21 under par for the tournament following Sunday's three-under 67, which was five strokes clear of second-place finisher Luke Donald.

There would be no playoff this time around for the 21-year-old, who did most of the heavy lifting Friday and Saturday. According to Helen Ross of the PGA Tour's official website, Kim's 60 in the second round was a course record at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, and he followed that up with a six-under 64 in the third round.

Here is a look at the final leaderboard, courtesy of CBS Sports:

Kim wasted little time creating separation Sunday. He birdied the first hole thanks to a beautiful approach shot, as the PGA Tour highlighted:

He's in the zone. Leader by 5. #QuickHits https://t.co/FRVyTcZy0S

From there, he turned in steady pars on Nos. 2 through 4 and then notched birdies on Nos. 5, 8 and 9 to end a sparkling front nine. He finished the front with a four-under 31, giving himself plenty of breathing room for the back, which proved to be important.

He struggled with a bogey on No. 10 and then looked to be in jeopardy with two straight bogeys on Nos. 13 and 14. Suddenly, veteran Jim Furyk was only three strokes back with four holes to play, and he was riding some momentum after a birdie on No. 14.

However, Kim steadied himself with a birdie on No. 15. He didn't even let a one-hour, 21-minute rain delay ice him, per PGA Tour Media, as he finished with a par and a birdie on the final two holes.

Justin Ray of Golf Channel noted the 21-year-old made history with his performance:

With win today, Si Woo Kim would be youngest international winner on PGA Tour since Seve Ballesteros in 1978... also at @WyndhamChamp

Furyk made a late charge up the leaderboard with three birdies through the first 14 holes, but his three-putt bogey on the par-five 15th and double bogey on the 18th proved costly down the stretch. He wasn't the same Furyk who shot the first round of 58 in PGA Tour history at the Travelers Championship earlier in August, but he tied for 10th at 13 under overall.

Donald took advantage of Furyk's late struggles and separated himself from the rest of the pack behind Kim. He finished in second place at 16 under for the tournament following his three-under 67 on Sunday. It wasn't the 64 he shot Saturday, but he notched five birdies to make up for his two bogeys.

The leaderboard was crowded behind Donald, with Hideki Matsuyama and Brandt Snedeker finishing at 15 under and five golfers posting 14-unders.

The leaders weren't the only ones who turned heads Sunday. Scott Brown finished nine under for the tournament, but he notched a hole-in-one on No. 3 on his way to a 65, as the PGA Tour shared:

Brown has a proven knack for acing No. 3 at Sedgefield Country Club, and Ray shared Brown's place in history:

Justin Ray @JustinRayGC

Scott Brown is only 2nd player in #PGATour history to ace same hole, same course b2b years: Joe Ozaki, '97-98, 7th hole at Bermuda Dunes.

Despite Brown's hole-in-one and Kim's victory, nobody turned in a better Sunday scorecard than Kevin Kisner. Kisner shot a seven-under 63 to bring his final tally to 13 under. Had he been more effective in the first round (even-par 70), he could have challenged Kim for the title, but he still finished in a tie for 10th.

Kisner posted three birdies on the front nine and then went on fire on the back with birdies on Nos. 12, 13 and 16 and an eagle on the par-five 15th. He didn't carry the momentum to the finish, though, bogeying No. 18.

While many of the most notable names on tour such as Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day were not in Greensboro, Rickie Fowler turned in a consistent effort after playing at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He ended with a two-under 68 on Sunday to bring his total score to 10 under for the tournament with rounds of 67, 67, 68 and 68.

Kim may not have overcome a loaded field for his first-ever PGA Tour win, but he left little doubt over who the best golfer was in Greensboro this week. 

If his play at the Wyndham Championship is any indication, he could find himself in a similar position more often as his career continues.

          

Reaction

Kim commented on his victory, per Will Gray of Golf Channel: “I’m very happy being the youngest winner this year. After (the Barbasol), I never expected coming soon like this, but I’m so happy winning this tournament.”

Snedeker talked about Kim’s performance as well, per Joedy McCreary of the Associated Press (via PGA.com): “You had to play a perfect round of golf. If he did what he has been doing all week, he's really, really tough to catch.”

Kim proved too tough to catch on Sunday with a dominant performance at the Wyndham Championship.
