* Howell III defeated Rodgers in a sudden death playoff

What happened at the RSM Classic?

Charles Howell III beat Patrick Rodgers in a play-off at Sea Island for his third PGA Tour title and first since 2007.

Howell had taken a one-shot advantage into the final round – the sixth 54-hole lead of his career, but he was yet to convert one into a victory.

So you can imagine what was going through his head when he found the water at the 2nd hole.

“I just honestly thought I had shot myself in the foot again,” Howell said.

But he held his nerve and saw out a final-round 67 which was enough to get him to 19-under alongside Rodgers, who had set the clubhouse target with a stunning 62.

After trading pars at the opening play-off hole, Howell drained a 15-foot birdie putt at the 2nd before slumping to his knees. The 11-year wait was finally over.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
