G-Mac stands supreme at RBC Heritage

Graeme McDowell ended his near three-year long drought without a win by taking the RBC Heritage title in the first extra hole of a play-off over Webb Simpson at Hilton Head.

At the wind-tousled South Carolina course, the duo shot nine-under with both players flubbing putting opportunities on their final hole to win the contest in regulation play.

Returning once more to the tricky 18th to settle matters, the tricky greens were again the x-factor. The American missed his putt for par; the Northern Irishman nailed his, game, set and match McDowell.

This win, McDowell’s first on the PGA Tour since the US Open in 2010, and first anywhere since October 2010, not only earned him a winner's check worth $1,044,000 but also rocketed him up the rankings into the World’s Top Ten players.

"This game kicks you more often than it gives you a pat on the back," McDowell acknowledged of his recent travails. "It's hard to win."

Former World No1 Luke Donald tied for third with Kevin Streelman, two shots behind the pair. Jerry Kelly was a further stroke back, rounding out the top five.
