GREENSBORO, North Carolina (Reuters) - South Korean Kim Si-woo was focused intensely on his own task, birdying the final hole as he turned a narrow advantage into a four-shot lead after the third round at the Wyndham Championship on Saturday.
Kim was almost flawless, carding a six-under-par 64 to move within sight of his first PGA Tour victory.
It was a grand day for South Korean golf as compatriot Park In-bee won Olympic golf gold earlier in the day, but Kim did not draw inspiration from Park's achievement.
Indeed, the single-minded Kim was not even aware of the final round in Rio.
"Finished Saturday?" he asked, before reacting to Park's victory, "that's great."
Kim, who began the day with a two-shot cushion after a second-round 60, birdied the first two holes and hardly put a foot wrong at the Sedgefield course.
The 21-year-old from Seoul put an exclamation mark on his day by stiffing his approach shot to three feet for a birdie at the last as he posted an 18-under 192 total.
Spaniard Rafa Cabrera-Bello shot 65 to jump into second place on 14-under, a shot ahead of Americans Jim Furyk and Kevin Na and Briton Luke Donald on 13-under. Continued...
