CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Anthony Kim became the youngest PGA Tour
winner in six years, cruising to a five-shot win over Ben Curtis on
Sunday in the Wachovia Championship.
With Tiger Woods home recovering from knee surgery and unable to
defend his title at Quail Hollow Club, the 22-year-old Kim turned
in a masterful performance that brought comparisons to Woods.
Entering the day with a four-shot lead, Kim birdied the first
hole and was never threatened on his way to a 3-under 69. He set
the tournament record with a 16-under 272 total, well ahead of a
stacked field that included 18 of the world's top 25 players. Curtis closed with a 65. Jason Bohn (71) finished third at 10 under.
