Pic­to­rial re­view of the last 30 days from around the world.

Kim Si-Woo, at 21, has be­come the youngest cham­pion in Play­ers history.

Kim has en­dorsed his prodi­gious tal­ent by turn­ing pro­fes­sional back in 2012 and win­ning the Wyn­d­ham Cham­pi­onship last year, but the world No.75 was hardly a gen­eral fancy. This sea­son Kim had had rounds of more than 80 three times, missed seven cuts and been forced to with­draw from four events be­cause of in­jury trou­ble.

Cour­tesy of a bo­gey-free 69 on Sun­day which se­cured a three­stroke win at 10 un­der par, Kim has col­lected US$1.89m and earned a batch of ex­emp­tions which will el­e­vate his ca­reer. Go­ing by such a calm ap­proach - Kim made nine straight pars on the back nine on Sun­day - fur­ther glory awaits.

On a TPC Saw­grass course where any­thing can go wrong with­out no­tice, Kim was the only player to go bo­gey-free Sun­day and closed with a 3-un­der 69 for a three-shot vic­tory in golf's big­gest tour­na­ment this side of the ma­jors.
