Kim leads Conners by one shot at Texas Open

Matt Jones heads the Australian contingent at the Texas Open

The 27-year-old Canadian fired a six-under 66 for the second day running to finish on 20-under 268 after a rollercoaster of a final round at TPC San Antonio.

Conners reached 20 under overall to become the first Monday qualifier to win since 2010 as he earned the final Masters invite.

First-round leader Kim used a late-round hole-in-one Friday to build a four-shot lead at the halfway point of the PGA Tour's last stop before the Masters.

Scott Brown, Jhonattan Vegas and Kyoung-Hoon Lee fill out the top five and sit tied for fourth place (11 under).

"I thought going in for sure this time", Kim told Golf Channel. "If I'm reading (the greens) good, I can putt it well".

"All this feel that I'm trying to put back into the game, less thinking, more feel, Augusta requires that".

Spieth, teeing off on the back nine, carded two bogeys and a birdie in his opening three holes before adding three more birdies before the turn to move to two under for the day. He recovered from a three-putt bogey at the 15th with a pitch shot to inside three feet to set up birdie at No. 17. This time I don't have the yips.

Attempting to thwart Kim s hopes of pocketing the $1.35 million victor s cheque are a chasing pack which includes Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler.

He remained on track with a birdie at the 14th after getting up and down from a greenside bunker and, after holing a clutch 12-footer for par at the 15th, he notched another birdie at the par-three 16th where he almost took out the flag with his tee shot.

"I just slid under the ball really nicely on that chip shot, landed right on my spot, just trickled in", Spieth said.

World number eight Fowler had held a share of the lead, but successive bogies at 15 and 16 undermined his charge, while Spieth also dropped shots at the first, 10th and 12th. "I needed the start today to recognize there are things that still need adjustment".

Kim Si-woo carded a three-under-par 69 on Saturday, while Jordan Spieth lost ground after a forgettable front nine.

Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, among only a handful of the big names using the Texas Open to tune-up for the Masters, both shot 68 on an unusually benign day in a typically windy location.

Conners, who is yet to win on the PGA Tour since turning professional in 2015, posted a third-round 66 to be within striking distance, while 2016 champion Charley Hoffman (64) is a stroke further back at 13 under.
