Satoshi Kodaira claims maiden PGA Tour win in RBC Heritage play-off

Whoever leader Bryson DeChambeau (seventy five) faltered early using a triple-bogey at the par-five moment and inserted two double-bogeys over his last six holes sit seven shots.

April 15, 2018; Hilton Head, SC, USA; Si Woo Kim hits from out of the bunker on the 5th hole during the final round of the RBC Heritage golf tournament at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Poulter won two weeks ago at the Houston Open and has put himself in position to challenge for a second title in three weeks.

Satoshi Kodaira claimed a maiden PGA Tour title with play-off victory at the RBC Heritage, as Ian Poulter's hopes faded during the final round.

It's proof once again that while others may receive more attention on a weekly basis, Rahm has the game to win anywhere in the world - and just might demonstrate that prowess again this season.

It was made all the more impressive by the fact that Poulter did not even play a practice round at the Harbour Town course.

The night before Poulter joked about his long stretch of play, hinting that exhaustion frequently would have already set in by then. We took an in-depth look at why that is, and whether the vehement criticism he faces is warranted.

But they were overtaken by DeChambeau later in the day after he sank four birdies in five holes on his way to a 64 - his lowest ever round on the PGA Tour.

While Poulter birdied the 12th and 13th as well, he said he key back-nine holes were par saves at the par-3 14th and 17th. During that period, he won 36 tournaments and eight major championships.without missing a single cut.

Before making the trip to Hilton Head, Kodaira was trending upward.

List dropped his approach 10 feet from the cup but missed his birdie putt to miss the playoffs.

But as the partisan crowds in Madrid can attest, Rahm possesses every skill and shot you'd expect from an elite player. But what a tee shot from Patrick Cantlay!

"The big difference is a bird is a God-made object", said Dillard Pruitt, a TOUR rules official on site.

In his only two previous appearances here Johnson missed the cut badly - at 16-over in 2008 and 5-over in 2009. It doesn't happen very often, but today is Friday the 13th.
