Kuchar closes 4-shot deficit in PGA winMatt Kuchar saw his well-struck 5-iron on the 18th hole at the RBC Heritage come up way short of the target and settle in a front bunker. For Kuchar, there was no better place - and no better shot in the tournament.
He followed with a stunning hole-out on Harbour Town Golf Link’s closing lighthouse hole, to overcome a four-shot deficit for a one-stroke victory and end nearly a month of Sundays where he came close to a title only to lose at the end.
Kuchar shot a 64 to finish at 11-under 273, one stroke ahead of Luke Donald, who had his third second place and fifth top-three finish here in the past six years.
