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

England's Luke Donald led the charge of contenders at 16 under.

Australian, Sooner to face off in U.S. Amateur final: BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. - Australia's Curtis Luck birdied the third playoff hole to beat MI sophomore Nick Carlson in the U.S. Amateur semifinals.

The 36-hole final was all square after 18 holes and Dalke, a 19-year-old from Norman, Okla., won the first hole after the break.

It got tight for a bit down the back nine as Kim's lead waned to three, but Kim was able to open it back up at the end and cruise home to the $1 million plus first prize.

The Victorian eventually finished 161st on the FedEx Cup standings and will miss the playoff events. Both players parred that hole and birdied No. 11 before Luck was able to reach the green in two on the par-5 12th.

Kim missed three birdie putts of six-feet or shorter in his 64 and has been producing a tee-to-green exhibition.

In a close contest with defending champion Thomas Pieters of Belgium, Peterson took the decisive lead when he birdied the par-3 16th hole for a total 15-under 273 at the Albatross Golf Resort near Prague. That is why this weekend is so important for Furyk, victory would pretty much put him into yet another Ryder Cup where his consistent style generally thrives.

"I aggressively played. I already made top 125 (in tour rankings), feel confidence so I don't have any fear to attacking the pin", he told reporters about having already retained his tour card and qualified for the season-ending FedExCup. "It was the same previous year, I was one ahead, so I've been in this position and hopefully I can just use what I learned the last time". There was an impressive calm about him on the back-nine yesterday - his birdie at the 18 was magnificent - and this great emerging talent can be fancied to finish the job today.

"I made a big jump here", he said.

"I never expected coming soon like this but I'm so happy I'm winning this tournament", Kim said. But now beginning the postseason comfortably inside the top 50, he'll likely qualify for the 70-man BMW Championship and has an increased chance to make the 30-man Tour Championship. There is nothing flukey about how Kim makes his scores - he is not the sort to roll in putts from all angles - and his style of play is ideal for defending leads. "But I'm in a good position and hope to enjoy playing". "It kept my round together". Last year, five players moved into the playoffs at the Wyndham, including champion Davis Love III. "I had to earn my way the hard way, mini tours, 15 hour drives, driving across the country and, you know, it means more to me to keep my card than it does to some of the other guys who have won because I've gone the hard road for the game".

The 2006 US Open victor carded a final round 66 at the Sedgefield Country Club to get to 10-under for the week and T22.
