Poulter fades to finish seventh

Gulf News

Hilton Head Island: Satoshi Kodaira closed with a 5-under 66 to rally from six shots behind, and then made a 25-foot birdie putt on the third play-off hole to defeat Si Woo Kim and win the RBC Heritage on Sunday.

Kodaira won for the first time in just his fifth start in regular PGA Tour events.

The 28-year-old from Japan finished at 12-under 272 about an hour before Kim finished his round of 71. They matched pars on the 18th hole twice in the sudden-death play-off before Kodaira made his birdie putt on the par-3 17th, and Kim came up short from just outside 20 feet.

Bryson DeChambeau birdied his last four holes for a 66 and tied for third with Luke List (72).

Ian Poulter, who had a one-shot lead going into the final round, made six bogeys in the final round for a 75. He tied for seventh.
