Bryan takes RBC Her­itage in South Carolina home­com­ing

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

HIL­TON HEAD IS­LAND, S.C. | Wes­ley Bryan ral­lied to win his home-state RBC Her­itage for his first PGA Tour ti­tle, clos­ing with a 4-un­der 67 on Sun­day for a one-stroke vic­tory over Luke Don­ald.

Bryan, a South Carolina na­tive who played col­lege golf for the Game­cocks, was four shots be­hind en­ter­ing the day and moved into con­tention with four con­sec­u­tive birdies on the front nine. He took the lead with a birdie on the 15th hole and fin­ished at 13-un­der 271.

Don­ald shot 68 in his lat­est close call at Har­bour Town Golf Links — it was his fifth sec­ond-place fin­ish here since 2009.

The 27-year-old Bryan tapped in for par on the clos­ing, 18th light­house hole to make the for­mer trick-shot artist the first South Carolinian to win the state’s lone PGA Tour event.

Ol­lie Sch­nieder­jans, Patrick Cant­lay and Wil­liam McGirt tied for third, two strokes be­hind Bryan.
