Satoshi, -5 under 66 and Si Woo, even par 71, finished tied for the RBC Heritage lead at -12 under par. They went into a sudden death play-off which Satoshi won with a birdie on the third extra hole, the par three 17th.
Satoshi did not sound too impressed with the Plaid Jacket, his words translated by an interpreter;
“I will probably not wear it regularly, but this is special.”
“I wasn’t really thinking about winning.”
“I wasn’t that nervous on the last putt, compared to the first two putts on 18.”
“This is a stage I’ve been dreaming about, and having this opportunity to play the PGA TOUR full time is a dream come true.”
Si Woo suffered from a bad day with the putter;
“I tried my best, and the putts didn’t drop. It is what it is.”
Tied in third place at -11 under par were Bryson DeChambeau, -5 under 66 today and Luke List, +1 over par 72, both players from the USA.
54 hole leader Ian Poulter, England, suddenly started making bogey’s, five on the back nine, finishing T 7 at -9 under par, with a last round +4 over 75.
