Michael Kim carded a 66 on Sunday at TPC Deere Run to win the tournament. He set a new 8-under record finishing at 27-under 257 and broke Steve Stricker's record set in 2010 by one stroke.

''To be able to finish out in style like this, it means a lot,'' said Kim. ''To be sitting here with a trophy, I'm at a loss for words.''

Kim will now head to the Open at Carnoustie, a great bonus for a player who had previously had only one top-10 finish in 84 career starts when he finished third at the Safeway Open two years ago.

''Even the last couple of weeks, I felt like my game was getting there,'' Kim said. ''I just felt like I needed just a couple of good starts to the rounds.''

Bronson Burgoon, Francesco Molinari, Joel Dahmen and Sam Ryder finished second at 19-under.
