(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC) – Satoshi Kodaira made a 25-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole to defeat Si Woo Kim after coming from 6 shots behind in the final round of the RBC Heritage on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory. Kodaira had finished off his round of 66 to get to 12 under par about an hour before Kim finished. Kodaira matched Kim with two pars on the 18th hole before rolling in his winning putt on the par-3 17th. Kim came up short on his 21-footer for birdie to keep the playoff going. Bryson DeChambeau (66) and Luke List (72) were tied for third. Third-round leader Ian Poulter's bid for a second tour title in three weeks ended with a 75 and a tie for seventh. Kodaira, 28, is ranked 46th in the world. He has won three tournaments in Japan and played in the Masters last week, finishing tied for 28th. Start times were pushed up Sunday morning because of bad weather forecast for later in the day. The tournament appeared in steady hands with Kim, whose bulldog focus and shot-making held everyone off to win The Players Championship last May. But the 22-year-old faltered over his final nine holes of regulation with three bogeys to fall into the tie with Kodaira.
