Kodaira wins Heritage in a playoff

Kodaira wins Heritage in a playoff

Will be updated. With AP Photos. After coming from six shots back at the start of the day, the victor rolled in a birdie putt of 24 feet, 6 inches at the par-3 17th hole, the third hole of a sudden-death playoff, and watched as Kim failed to match him with a long birdie attempt of his own.

Bryson DeChambeau reacts after hitting his shot out from the rough and into the bunker on the second green during the third round of the RBC Heritage golf tournament in Hilton Head Island, S.C., on Saturday.

Kodaira is not a first-time victor overall, though, as he has captured six titles on the Japan Golf Tour.

"This really is what I had been dreaming about", Kodaira, that tied for 28th at a week's U.S. Pros, claimed via a biography. "And having this opportunity to play [the PGA TOUR] fulltime is a dream come true". "I played the golf course pretty good tee to green".

Kodaira defeated Si Woo Kim on the third playoff hole, rolling in a 25-foot birdie on the par-3 17th hole, then punching his fist in celebration.

Kodaira's relentless grind to the top won the day. "I will probably not wear it regularly", he said through an interpreter, sending a burst of laughter through the winner's press conference. Luke List was unable to find a groove as well, winding up at 11 under for the tournament after carding a one-over 72 in the final round.

Overnight leader Poulter was two off the pace at the turn but saw his challenge end on the back nine, where the Englishman posted four bogeys in a five-hole stretch on his way to a four-over 75 to end the week tied-seventh. He'll be exempt on the PGA Tour through the 2019-20 season. But the 22-year-old faltered over his final nine holes of regulation with three bogeys to fall into the tie with Kodaira.

Kim struggled with his putter as he missed an eight-footer for birdie at the 13th, three-putted the 15th for bogey and squandered another chance from inside 10 feet at the par-four next.

He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers. A meeting of Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) is also being held in Srinagar today to discuss the situation.

Kim thought the increased winds slowed down the greens, making putts more hard on the final nine holes. "I tried my best and the putts didn't drop", Kim said. "It is what it is". He has one more important goal to accomplish, though, at the RBC Heritage before any time off.

Playing Harbour Town for the first time, Kodaira opened with a 73, then followed with the tournament's best round of the week, 63, on Friday.

Down to his final try to reach Augusta National, Poulter needed a birdie on the 72nd hole to force a playoff with Beau Hossler.

DeChambeau, that held the lead but imploded to take a seat shots back, blended two bogeys using seven birdies, including a person at each one of the last 4 holes. Kim shot a 3-over 38 on the back nine that included three bogeys, six pars and a whole handful of missed putts that would have won him the tournament.

Dustin Johnson finished with his best round of the week, a 67, and tied for 16th, ensuring that he will stay at No. 1 in the world for at least the next two weeks.

Kodaira got his final round off to an excellent start, birdieing the first three holes.

Due to the possibility of strong afternoon thunderstorms on Sunday, the final round will feature threesomes going off split tees starting at 7 a.m. ET (1100 GMT).
