ROYAL TROPHY

BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Brunei (AP) _ South Korea’s K.T. Kim made an 8-foot birdie putt on the first hole of a playoff to lift Asia past Europe in the Royal Trophy.

After the teams finished singles play tied at 8, Kim and countryman Y.E. Yang edged Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts and Italy’s Francesco Molinari in the fourball playoff at The Empire Hotel and Country Club.

Colsaerts had a chance to match Kim’s birdie, but missed a 5-footer.

Yang forced the playoff, beating Molinari 2 and 1 in the final singles match.

After falling behind 3 1/2-1/2 on Friday in the opening foursomes, Asia cut it to 4 1/2-3 1/2 in fourball play Saturday, and tied it with 4 1/2 points in the closing singles. Europe leads the series 4-2.

AUSTRALIAN PGA

COOLUM, Australia (AP) _ Australasian Tour rookie Daniel Popovic completed an improbable wire-to-wire victory in the Australian PGA, shooting a 3-under 69 for a four-stroke victory.

The Australian finished at 16-under 272 at Palmer Coolum resort.

Rod Pampling birdied the first six holes to take the lead after nine holes, but dropped four strokes on the final three holes _ making bogeys on 16 and 17 and a double bogey on 18 _ to fall into a tie for second with fellow Australian Anthony Brown. Pampling had a 69, and Brown shot 71.

Australia’s Geoff Ogilvy failed to finish in the top three to ensure a top-50 finish in the year-end world ranking and a spot in the Masters. He shot a 69 to tie for fourth.
