Kim rolls to win in Japan

Aichi. Japan (SportsNetwork.com) - Hyung-Sung Kim carded a 2-under 68 on Sunday as he rolled to a four-stroke victory at The Crowns.

Kim collected his third career victory on the Japan Golf Tour at 11-under-par 269.

I.J. Jang (69) finished in second place on Nagoya Golf Club's Wago Course at 7-under, while Yasuharu Imano (69) ended in third at 6-under and Hiroshi Iwata (69) took fourth at minus-5.

Brad Kennedy (67), Koumei Oda (69) and Ryo Ishikawa (72) shared fifth at 4- under 276.

Kim entered the final round with a two-stroke lead and was never truly threatened on Sunday, parring his first six holes before moving to 10-under with a birdie at the seventh.

Tomohiro Kondo had earlier birdied the second to pull within a shot of the lead, but bogeyed the third and fourth to drop to 7-under before falling well off the pace with a double-bogey at the seventh.

Kim rolled from there, recording birdies at the 12th and 18th around a bogey at the 14th to cruise to the victory.
