Korean teen sensation wins

Korean teenager Kim Joo-hyung yesterday become the second-youngest winner on the Asian Tour when he won the shortened Panasonic Open in India by one stroke ahead of local challengers Shiv Kapur and Chikkarangappa S. The 17-year-old, who was making just his third start on the Tour this year, fired a 7-under-par 65 in the third and final round at the 54-hole, US$400,000 tournament in Gurgaon near New Delhi to clinch the title. Kapur had a share of the overnight lead with Australia’s Terry Pilkadaris but was let down by a costly double-bogey seven on his closing hole. Pilkadaris finished fourth after carding a 71, while Indonesia’s Rory Hie, Chinese Taipei’s Hung Chien-yao and India’s Vikrant Chopra were tied fifth. “I’m really speechless. It has been a dream of mine to play on the Asian Tour ever since I was young,” Kim said. “And it’s really wonderful to come here, be in contention and win. I cannot describe the feeling now.”
