(*won with a birdie on the third hole of sudden death)
• Satoshi Kodaira made a 25-foot birdie putt on the third playoff hole (No. 17) to defeat Si Woo Kim in the 14th playoff in RBC Heritage history.
• World No. 1 and Team RBC Ambassador Dustin Johnson closed with a 4-under 67, his lowest score the week, to finish at 7-under and tie for 16th in his first Heritage start since 2009. Had Johnson finished outside the top-32 this week, Justin Thomas would have moved into the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking after the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
• Defending champion Wesley Bryan shot a final-round 1-under 70 to finish 3-under and tie for 42nd. The only three players to successfully defend an RBC Heritage title are Payne Stewart (1989-90), Davis Love III (1991-92) and Boo Weekley (2007-08).
• Clemson standout Doc Redman, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, tied for 50th at 1-under. Redman was the one amateur (of two) to make the cut.
“After the round there was two strokes separating us. I was just sitting in a chair, just not doing anything. Then when it was one stroke difference I went to the practice range and started practicing. We didn’t do anything special, didn’t even eat or drink anything.”
