American Michael Kim cruised to his first PGA Tour victory and a trip to the British Open with a runaway win in the John Deere Classic on Sunday.

Kim birdied his first three holes and was never challenged as he shot five-under 66 to win by eight strokes at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois a day after his 25th birthday.

With all four rounds in the 60s, the South Korean-born golfer finished on 27-under 257 for the tournament.

Italian Francesco Molinari (64) and Americans Joel Dahmen (65), Sam Ryder (66) and Bronson Burgoon (69) tied for second at 265.

The British Open, which starts on Thursday at Carnoustie in Scotland, will be Kim's second career major. He tied for 17th and was the low amateur at the 2013 U.S. Open.
