Im Sung-jae won his second PGA Tour title with a victory at the Shriners Children's Open in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend. It came about a year-and-a-half after his first PGA victory at the Honda Classic in March last year.
He carded a 24-under 260 overall to finish four strokes ahead of Matthew Wolff of the U.S., after shooting nine birdies and no bogey in the final round.
Im started the final round tied for sixth, three strokes behind the leader, but shot four birdies through the seventh hole, to be tied for first place. He then secured his victory thanks to a streak of five birdies from the ninth to the 13th holes.
"After my first victory, I went through a difficult time, wondering when I would ever get my second win," Im said. "But I endured the wait for a chance at another victory and I'm happy I could make it happen."
