Result: Michael Kim storms to John Deere Classic win

Michael Kim claims his first PGA Tour win in emphatic style courtesy of an eight-shot triumph at the John Deere Classic.

Michael Kim has completed a record-breaking week at the John Deere Classic by registering an eight-shot victory in Illinois.

The world number 473 - who went into the tournament having made just six of the last 17 cuts - produced a final-round 66 to end the event with the lowest-ever 72-hole score of 27-under.

Kim's success - his first on the PGA Tour - has also secured the final place at The Open Championship, which begins at Carnoustie on Thursday.

Four players shared second position, with Italy's Francesco Molinari continuing his recent fine form and Joel Dahmen, Sam Ryder and Bronson Burgoon all producing strong performances as they bid to reach the Fedex Cup playoffs.

Earlier in the day, two-time Major winner Zach Johnson produced a 64 to end the competition in 16th spot before heading over to Scotland.
