Kim's 36 hole total of 131 (64-67) was good for a 3 shot victory over 2 players.

This was Kim's 41st victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. He earned $5,000 from the $20,025 purse raising his career earnings to $171,528.

Chris DeForest from Daniel Island, SC and Aaron Sherry from Ft. Myers, FL tied for 2nd at 10-under par 134. Both players had make-able eagle putts on the par 5 18th hole to get to 11 under par and apply pressure to Kim but both narrowly missed and tapped in for birdie.

There was 1 skin out each day worth $500 each. On day 1 Adam Hart made birdie on the difficult par 3 seventh hole. On day 2 Mitchell Gregson made birdie on the par 4 15th hole. Click on any of the $ signs under the skins column for the hole by hole skin results.

Sunny Kim

The West Palm Beach City Championship has been around for decades but the Professional Division fell by the wayside until WPB Golf Club's Head Professional Judy Dickinson met with the Minor League Golf Tour during the summer of 2015 and decided that the MLGT would conduct the Professional Division of the WPB City Championship. Thank you to all the professionals that came out to support this great tournament and the MLGT looks forward to a long relationship with this historic event.

WPB City Championship

West Palm Beach Golf Club hosted the PGA Tour's West Palm Beach Open in the 1950's and 60's. A few of the past champions include Arnold Palmer, Gay Brewer, and Gardner Dickinson.
