A pictorial review of the last 30 days from around the world.
Japan’s Satoshi Kodaira defeated South Korea’s Si Woo Kim in a playoff to win the 2018 RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Kodaira, who trailed Kim by five shots heading into the final round, shot a five-under
66 to finish 12 under for the tournament. Kodaira and Kim tied the first two playoff holes before a birdie on the third were enough for Kodaira to take the title.
It’s the first PGA Tour win of Kodaira’s career. Entering Sunday, the 28-year-old had failed even to register a top-10 finish.
Consistency was the key for Kodaira. He missed just two of the 14 fairways and reached 13 greens in regulation. Kim, meanwhile, reached six fairways and 11 greens in regulation.
Before making the trip to Hilton Head, Kodaira was trending upward. He made the cut and finished 54th at the WGC-Mexico Championship in March and tied for 28th at the Masters earlier this month - his best finish at a Major tournament.
