Hideki Matsuyama struggled on the putting green but still managed to move three notches up the leaderboard and finish in a two-way tie for third place at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday.

Matsuyama, whose charge was slowed by a bogey and a double-bogey a day earlier at Sedgefield Country Club, carded four birdies against a sole bogey in a round of 67 to join American Brand Snedeker with a 15-under-par 265 total.

South Korean Kim Si-woo maintained his overnight lead to win his first tour title at 259, with Luke Donald of Britain following in second five shots behind.

“My shots were a little better (than yesterday) but I couldn’t convert chances when I wanted to improve my score, so that was frustrating,” Matsuyama said.

“I still have concerns but I’m looking forward to the next tournament,” he said of the Sept. 2-5 Deutsche Bank Championship, which became part of the FedEx Cup Playoffs in 2007.

It was the seventh time the 24-year-old had finished among the top 10 this season.
