“I am an only child. I got three brothers at 65, thank you,” he said.

Meanwhile, South Korea’s Kim Ju-hyung won his first PGA Tour title at the Wyndham Championship and posted an impressive nine-under par in the final playoff.

Kim’s impressive effort at Sedfield Country Club, where the 20-year-old played the first nine holes of the final round in eight under, capped off a remarkable week with a quadruple bogey on the first hole on Thursday.

“It’s definitely a week I’ll remember forever,” said Kim, who shot the 20-under 260 in a five-stroke victory behind Im Sung-ja of South Korea and John Huh of the United States.

“I can’t believe it — I’m speechless right now,” Kim said, after a round in which his emotions were finally under control.

“I’ve worked really hard to get here,” he said, his voice cracking. “Then just walking off the 18th green, just thinking about the work behind the scenes.

“It was a very difficult day. I didn’t know golf was this stressful,” added the player, nicknamed Tom, of his childhood love for Thomas the Tank Engine.

Cameron Percy was the best-placed Australian to finish eighth, nine shots off the lead.
