University of Denver golfer C.J. Kim shot a 2-under-par 70 on Sunday and won the Colorado Golf Association's Public Links Championship by one stroke after his two closest competitors were assessed one-shot penalties for slow play at Buffalo Run Golf Course in Commerce City.

Kim finished the tournament at 6-under 210.

CU golfer Derek Fribbs and Colorado State's Zahkai Brown held the lead during the final round. But their over-par rounds, combined with the penalties, left them in second and third place, respectively.

Fribbs (76—211) ended up a stroke behind Kim, and Brown (74—212) was another shot back.

"I understand they were going for the championship, but they're held to the same standard as every other group out there," Pete Lis, the CGA's director of rules and competitions, said of his decision to penalize the group.
