HAWKE'S BAY, New Zealand (AP) -- Anthony Kim has won the Kiwi Challenge despite making a bogey in a playoff, beating Sean O'Hair to win the $1 million check at Cape Kidnappers.

Kim shot a 5-under 66 on Thursday and was leading over the back nine until O'Hair made a birdie on the 18th hole for a 3-under 69 to force a playoff in the 36-hole exhibition for players under 30.

O'Hair found trouble left of the 650-yard 15th hole making double bogey, allowing Kim to win by taking four shots to reach the green and two-putting for a bogey.

Hunter Mahan shot 67 to finish three strokes behind, while Camilo Villegas (72) was another shot behind.
