Chris Kirk made a par-saving 7-foot putt after an errant tee shot at the 18th hole, avoiding a playoff at Colonial and winning by a stroke Sunday for his fourth career PGA Tour victory. With a closing 4-under 66, Kirk got to 12-under 268, one ahead of Masters champion Jordan Spieth, playing partner Brandt Snedeker and Jason Bohn. After Kirk hooked his tee shot at No. 18 into the left rough, he hit his approach from 155 yards over the green.

Byeong Hun An shot a 7-under 65 to win the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday with a tournament record total of 21 under. The South Korean made five birdies and an eagle in a bogey-free round to finish six strokes clear of Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand (69) and Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain (67). The 23-year-old An captured his first European Tour victory after Francesco Molinari, who had at least a share of the lead for the first three rounds, only managed a 74.

By Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - South Korean An Byeong Hun became only the third European Tour rookie to win the BMW PGA Championship in the 60-year history of the event when he roared to a spectacular six-shot victory on Sunday. The 23-year-old went into the final round in a tie for the lead with Italian Francesco Molinari and pieced together a nerveless seven-under-par 65 to finish with a 21-under total of 267 on a gray but humid day at Wentworth. An's triumph earned him a check for 833,330 euros ($917,913) and meant he joined British pair Bernard Gallacher(1969) and Scott Drummond (2004) as rookie winners of the tour's flagship event.

By Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England (Reuters) - Two years ago Ignacio Garrido feared his career might be over so it is hardly surprising he has worn an almost permanent grin throughout this week's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. The Spaniard won the European Tour's flagship event in 2003 but 10 years later was told he had glandular fever. Garrido spent a long time bed-ridden and unable to walk but he has slowly worked his way back toward full fitness and last week's Spanish Open at El Prat represented his competitive return after 18 months out.

By Tony Jimenez VIRGINIA WATER, England, May 24 (Reuters) - Europe's Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke gave himself a timely lift ahead of next week's Irish Open by shooting a six-under 66 in the final round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Sunday. Clarke, however, took advantage of the closing par-fives with two birdie fours securing a two-under final aggregate of 286. Clarke was named 2016 Ryder Cup captain in February, succeeding Irishman Paul McGinley, but his form has been scratchy since his appointment.

Choi Jin-ho held his nerve to drain an 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole to win the SK Telecom Open on Sunday by one shot from South Korean compatriot Lee Soo-min. The 30-year-old, in his third tournament back following a near-two year break to fulfill military duties, had tossed away the lead after his third bogey of the day at the par four 15th before his stunning finish sealed a first OneAsia Tour win. "Amazing, I am so relieved," said Choi after signing for a final round of level par 72 and 10-under total. Choi, who had won three times on the domestic tour before his military break, held a one shot lead at the start of the day and eagled the fifth before he coughed up bogeys to keep the field in touch.
