NORMAN, Okla. -- Anthony Kim carded a final-round 5-under-par 67 to finish in a tie for fifth Sunday at the Shell Houston Open in Humble, Texas.
The Dallas, Texas, resident went to the weekend at 1-under but fired rounds of 66 and 67 at the 7,457-yard Redstone Golf Club Tournament Course to jump into a tie for fifth at 12-under-par.
Scorching the front nine on the weekend, the three-time OU All-American shot 7-under-par for the two rounds with scores of 32 and 33.
The former OU standout carded only one bogey on the weekend, a final-round five on the par-4 18th, en route to the second-lowest weekend score of all competitors.
With the top-5 finish, Kim earned his largest paycheck of the year at $200,750. Through eight starts on the 2007 season, he has collected $456,259, cracking the top-50 with his latest finish.

Through April 2, 2007, Kim ranks fifth on the PGA Tour in driving distance and ball striking and 10th in greens in regulation percentage.
