Clark comes up short despite 62

Clark birdies No. 18

In the final round of the The McGladrey Classic, Tim Clark hits his 213-yard approach shot to 4 feet and sinks the putt for birdie on the par-4 18th hole.

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Tim Clark had the lowest score of the week Sunday at Sea Island.

It still wasn't enough.

Clark birdied his final three holes to shoot an 8-under 62 to finish in a tie for second, one shot back of winner Chris Kirk at The McGladrey Classic.

"I haven't played this sort of golf in quite a long time, you know, really since the injury," said Clark, who underwent wrist surgery in 2010. "I'm starting to feel like my game might be back to where it was three years ago."

It showed.

Clark's ball-striking was spectacular all afternoon. The South African hit a dozen approach shots to 15 feet and made nine birdies and just one bogey.

He hit all but two fairways and missed only one green in regulation.

"Obviously a golf course that suits my game," he said. "Unfortunately this is the first year I've been able to come play here, but I really enjoyed it."
