Kim opens four-shot lead in Wyndham

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Si Woo Kim followed his tournament-record 10-under 60 with a third-round 64 on Saturday to increase his lead to four strokes in the Wyndham Championship.

The 21-year-old South Korean player had an 18-under 192 total at Sedgefield, a stroke off the tournament 54-hole record set by Carl Pettersson in his 2008 victory.

Kim is in contention for his first PGA Tour victory for the second time in a month after losing a playoff to Aaron Baddeley in Alabama in the Barbasol Championship.

"I think tomorrow is much pressure, but I'm just trying to keep confidence. That's it," Kim said. "I feel very good now. My shots like much more consistent. Only problem have pressure. ... I'm experienced before like Alabama in Barbasol, that's good experience. Good for tomorrow."

Kim played the front nine in 3-under 35 on Saturday with four birdies and a bogey. He added birdies on the par-4 13th, par-5 15th and par-4 18th.

Rafa Cabrera Bello was second after a 65 in the PGA Tour's regular-season finale.

Jim Furyk, Luke Donald and Kevin Na were 13 under.
