He sent another tee shot into water and double-bogeyed. After that, a trio of birdies followed.It was a remarkable recovery but it wasn't enough to keep me from finishing last in the 65-strong field that finished all four rounds at TPC Southwind, Memphis.Kim was 30 shots behind Hideki Matsuyama, Sam Burns, and Abraham Ancer who both finished 16 under par for a three-way playoff.Ancer clinches first Tour titleAncer won the second round with a birdie on the play-off hole to secure his first Tour win and become the fourth Mexican-born player to win a championship.The 30-year-old started day four behind overnight leader Harris English but produced a strong final round of 68 to make it into the play-off.English appeared to be close to a wire-to–wire win going into the last nine holes, but double bogeys at the 11th and 14th greens and a bogey at the 16th left him one stroke behind the three-man play-off team.
