South Korean golfer Lee Kyoung-hoon has captured his first PGA Tour victory, becoming the eighth South Korean to win on the Tour.
The 29-year-old won the AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas, on Sunday shooting a six-under 66, despite heavy rain and a waterlogged course.
Play was halted due to a thunderstorm but Lee still managed eight birdies in the final round, picking up the roughly one-and-a-half million dollar winner's check.
His victory also saw Lee crack the world top 100 for the first time, jumping to fifty-ninth.
