Bryan wins first PGA Tour title at RBC Heritage

PGA Tour rookie Wesley Bryan won his first career event Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links, winning in his home state of South Carolina by one stroke over Luke Donald.

Bryan, who played on the Web.com Tour last season, posted a 4-under par round of 67 on Sunday, the lowest score outside of Matt Kuchar’s phenomenal 64.

Bryan dropped a shot at the par-4 third, but responded with four consecutive birdies. Bryan carded another bogey at eight, and went bogey-free over his final 10 holes. He then grabbed a share of the lead at the 13th with a birdie three.

He tapped in for par at the 18th to take the lead in the clubhouse, and with all of the players in the final groups struggling, it was enough to capture his first title.

Donald will be rueing a double bogey seven on the second hole that ultimately cost him victory, the only dropped shots of a round that featured five birdies.

Overnight leader Jason Dufner shot a disappointing final round of 76, to finish at eight under along with Kuchar and nine others.
