Last-hole heroics give Duncan maiden title

Tyler Duncan becomes the latest maiden champion on the PGA Tour in the final event of the fall series
 

RSM Classic report: What happened at Sea Island resort?

Tyler Duncan won his first PGA Tour title in style as he beat former US Open champion Webb Simpson in a play-off.

Extra holes were required after the pair were tied at the top on 19-under and it was on the second play-off hole that Duncan prevailed.

Having shared the first hole with a pair of fours, Simpson was first to hit the second time around and found the left rough. Duncan took advantage and placed his tee shot in the centre of the fairway.

With Simpson’s second finding the greenside bunker the door was open for Duncan and he put a 7-iron to 15 feet. Simpson made a good escape from the sand and left a par effort but Duncan holed a brilliant clutch putt to take home his first title.

Throughout the final day Duncan had played the better golf but still needed to card a birdie at the last to force the play-off.

Brendon Todd’s remarkable run came to an end this week as he was unable to claim a third consecutive PGA Tour victory despite holding the 54-hole lead.

The American who has revitalised his career this season was looking to join an elite list to have won three consecutive titles and was in with a chance on the final day. But he was unable to card another round in the 60s and a Sunday 72 saw him slip to solo 4th.

Sebastian Munoz, who won his first PGA Tour title at the Sanderson Farms, was also in the mix but came up just one short of a play-off spot.

The PGA Tour is taking another break next week and will return with the Tiger Woods’ Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas before Woods leads his team to the Presidents Cup in Australia.
