Kim wins SK Telecom Open for first pro title

INCHEON, South Korea (AP) -- Kim Seung-hyuk sank a nine-foot birdie putt on the last hole to win the SK Telecom Open by one shot ahead of countryman Lee Tae-hee and Kim Kyung-tae on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Seung-hyuk shot a two-under-par 70 in the final round, finishing on an 11-under total of 277 for the OneAsia Tour tournament.

Australian David Bransdon (69) was fourth while star attraction K.J. Choi (68) was one shot further back.

Early in the final round the top four were tied at 10-under when Seung-hyuk appeared to fall out of contention when he made a double-bogey on the fourth before bouncing back with birdies at five and seven.
