Satoshi Kodaira and Si Woo Kim finished the 72 holes of regulation golf in the RBC Heritage, at the beautiful Harbour Town Golf Links dead even.

Both were sitting at -12 under par and headed back to #18 for their first playoff hole.

The played #18 twice and both parred it both times. Then they headed to the par 3 #17. Both men hit the green but Kodaira sunk a 24 1/2′ putt for the win.

This is the first time I have ever saw 2 players tie for the lead and can’t speak English.

They had to use an interpreter and it was very interesting.

I am not very familiar with Kodaira but know that Kim is our defending Players Champion.

This is Kodaira’s first win in the USA. Pretty cool having an International player win the 50th anniversary of the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing.

We had bad weather coming in today so the guys played 3-somes and went off #1 & #10 starting at 7:00 this morning.

It was really windy but they got the tournament in and that’s all they wanted to have happen.

We were all rooting for fan favorites Bryson DeChambeau and of course Ian Poulter.

DeChambeau blew it yesterday with 2 double bogeys and a triple bogey.

He still ended up -11 only one shot off the lead and in a tie for 3rd place with Luke List.

Gosh Ian Poulter has played 6 weeks in a row and I am not sure if he would admit it but he sure must have run out of gas on the back nine today.

He had 4 pars and 5 bogeys for a 40. That slipped him all the way down to a T7.

All in all this was a magnificent week for beautiful Hilton Head Island. It is nice to hear the kind words that Jim Nance and Gary McCord always have for our little home.

Hope everybody gets a chance to visit sometime this year. If you haven’t played Harbour Town definitely put it on your bucket list. It is truly “one of a kind”!
