Ian Poulter takes one-shot lead into final round of RBC Heritage

Ian Poulter takes one-shot lead into final round of RBC Heritage

Now as Kodaira prepares to play the PGA Tour full time, he has an opportunity to raise awareness of the brand on a weekly basis going forward. In fact, he had never posted a top 25 on the PGA Tour until this showing (his previous best coming last week in a T-28 at the Masters).

England's Ian Poulter on Saturday extended his run of form with a four-under-par 67 that gave him a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of the RBC Heritage in SC, while Taiwan's C.T. Pan (67) finished the day in fourth. But this victory certainly surprises many. Kodaira matched Kim with two pars on the 18th hole before rolling in his winning putt on the par-3 17th.

But credit Kodaira for taking advantage.

He has now won himself a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour, which is a proper Willie Wonker ticket.

Hanley Ramirez Channels David Ortiz In Celebratory Tweet After Red Sox's Win
Red Sox: RHP Hector Velazquez (1-0, 3.12) gets his second start after holding Tampa Bay to one run over 5 2/3 innings on April 1. Boston has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total has gone over in five of those seven.

Sounds like a good plan to us.

Kim missed his chance at history. His third PGA Tour win before the age of 23 eludes him, though. Kim, a former Players Championship victor and champion in two of his first 87 starts on the PGA Tour, was delighted by the support he received throughout the week in Hilton Head. But he definitely squandered this one. He had a two-shot lead early in the back nine when his putter started to falter. His roller coaster of a tournament played out again Sunday as he rose three shots to 9-under, then fell back to 7-under before closing with consecutive birdies on the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th holes. Those flatstick troubles would be his undoing in the end.

Kim placed his approach six feet from the cup but missed his birdie putt, setting up the playoff.

"Poults" dropped a first shot at the third hole but got back to within a shot of the lead with a virtual tap-in birdie at five.

List, who lost a playoff to Justin Thomas in The Honda Classic, had a chance to join the playoff but missed a birdie putt from just outside 10 feet on the last hole of regulation. He had six final-round bogeys in a closing 72, so it was incredible he was still in it in the first place.

American Luke List is one of Poulter's nearest challengers as he also carded a third round of 67 to share second spot with Korean Si Woo Kim on -11. Poulter, the 54-hole leader, held steady on the front nine as he went out in 1-under 35 and remained around the lead.

The Woburn golfer had moved one shot clear of the field on day three of the 50th anniversary event but Poulter admitted he wondered how he could still be awake given his long run of events. But what a tee shot from Patrick Cantlay! "But I'm very very happy to make that putt".
