Kim takes Houston Open in playoff

2:17 pm on 5 April 2010

The American golfer Anthony Kim has ended a nearly two-year drought, beating Vaughn Taylor in a playoff at the Houston Open this morning.

The 24 year old started the final round tied for the lead but squandered the chance to win in regulation when he bogeyed the last hole.

It's the third win on the PGA Tour for Kim, who played the event despite a torn thumb ligament, and he says it's a good confidence boost ahead of the Masters at Augusta later this week.
