Kim Narrowly Misses First Pro Win
Springfield, Mo. – Former Cal men’s golfer Michael Kim led for much of the final round before settling for a four-way tie for second Sunday after the final round of the Web.com Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper. Kim (65-66-70-67 – 268, -20) had a one-shot advantage heading into his final hole but bogeyed the par-five 18th to drop into a tie for first. Cameron Percy (64-68-68-67 – 267, -21), who was playing in the final threesome of the day and two groups behind Kim, birdied the final two holes to win the tournament.
Kim’s bogey on the final hole was his first of the day and only his third of the tournament.
"I felt really comfortable during the entire round," Kim said. “I'm proud of how I played in pressure moments and although it was a disappointing end, it was a good week overall and I'm really excited about the upcoming tournaments."
“It was a great run by Michael,” Cal head coach Steve Desimone said. “Lots of Golden Bear fans were rooting for him. It’s always tough to come up short, especially when he was so close. But we’re really proud of him and we all know his day will come.”
The finish earned Kim a $44,450 paycheck and moved him up 50 spots to No. 46 on the Web.com Tour’s money list with a total of $83,339. The Top 25 on the money list at the end of the regular season will be guaranteed 2014-15 PGA TOUR cards with another 25 cards available during the Web.com Tour playoffs.
Homa ($190,302) is currently 16th on the money list, while Tomasulo ($83,418) is one spot ahead of Kim in 45th.
