RBC Heritage winner Fitzpatrick “I thought Spieth’s overtime putt went in both times… ”

Last year’s US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick (England) won the RBC Heritage, the 6th ‘designated tournament’ of the PGA Tour season, and jumped to 8th place in the world rankings.

Fitzpatrick made 4 birdies and 1 bogey in the final round of the PGA Tour RBC Heritage (total prize money of $20 million) held at Harbortown Golf Links (par 71, 7191 yards) in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA on the 17th. After hitting 3 under par 68 with a dog and recording a total of 17 under par 267, finishing tied with Jordan Spieth (USA) for the lead, he won in the third overtime.

Fitzpatrick drew with par in the two overtimes played on the 18th hole (par 4) and 17th hole (par 3), and then took a birdie and won the championship in the third overtime on the 18th hole with a second shot right in front of the hole. Fitzpatrick, who won his first PGA Tour victory and 8 DP World Tour (European Tour) victories by winning the US Open last year, reaped two PGA Tour victories in 10 months. Fitzpatrick, who led the 3rd round, was one stroke behind Spieth until the 15th hole, but caught a birdie on the 16th hole and finished as a joint lead, winning in overtime. 토스카지노

Fitzpatrick, who won the prize money of 3.6 million dollars, entered the top 10 in the world ranking announced on the day, jumping 8 places from last week (16th). His personal best ranking is also eighth after winning the US Open.

Fitzpatrick said, “It’s very special to win here where I enjoyed vacationing with my family when I was young.”

Spieth, who failed to lose two consecutive games due to an unfortunate loss, said, “It is still difficult to understand why the putt did not go in the first extension. Even now, if you hit 10 times, you can putt 8 times.” Spieth’s 4m birdie putt in the first overtime period ran out of power at the last moment and bent to the right as he brushed the hole, and the 3m birdie putt in the second overtime period also turned and stopped in front of the hole due to lack of speed. Speed ​​rose from 15th in the world last week to 9th.

Im Seong-jae hit 4 under par 67 with 5 birdies and 1 bogey, recording a total of 13 under par 271 strokes, finishing tied for 7th with 4 players including Brian Harmon (USA). He climbed 6 places from a tie for 16th the previous day, and received a prize money of 607,500 dollars. Im Seong-jae’s world ranking remained unchanged at 17th.

This is the record of entering the top 10 for the 5th season following last month’s Players Championship (joint 6th place). Lim Seong-jae has been consistently recording 7th place at the Shriners Children’s Open (October) Open, a tie for 4th at the Farmers Insurance Open (January), and a tie for 6th at the WM Phoenix Open (February), the first tournament of the 2022-2023 season.

Patrick Cantlay (USA) ranked 3rd (16 under par 267 strokes), Zander Chopley (USA) ranked 4th (15 under par 269 strokes), and World No. 1 Masters Champion John Rahm (Spain) Scotty Scheffler (USA) and finished in a tie for 11th place (11 under par 273 strokes).

Lee Gyeong-hoon cut 2 strokes with 4 birdies and 2 bogeys and tied for 41st place with a total of 6 under par 278 strokes.
