PGA: Matthew Fitzpatrick wins the RBC Heritage Tournament in overtime

Matthew Fitzpatrick beat Jordan Spieth at the end of the third hole of overtime to win the RBC Heritage Course on Sunday afternoon in Hilton Heads, South Carolina.

On the deciding hole, Fitzpatrick putt his second putt on the par-4 from the 18th less than a foot from the cup to force Spieth into Birdie, which he was unable to score.

Spieth had a chance to end the controversy over the first two holes of extra time, but each time his shot deflected off target in the last minute. Spieth’s putt on the 18th hole circled the hole while the ball on the 17th hole swerved to the right.

For Fitzpatrick, this is his second PGA Tour title, following his triumph at the US Open last summer.

Fitzpatrick was two strokes behind Spieth with five holes to play, but fumbled the 15th and 16th holes to tie the match at -17.

Alone at the top of the standings after three rounds, Fitzpatrick was one stroke ahead of Spieth at the start of the day.

Fitzpatrick finished the final round with a score of 68 (minus -3) as Spieth shot 66 for the second day in a row.

American Patrick Cantlay finished third with a cumulative score of -15, one shot ahead of Xander Scheufele, who finished fourth.

A week after winning the Masters, Spaniard John Ramm finished the tournament in 15th place after a round of 68 in the final round.

Corey Conners completed the course in 72 strikeouts to become the highest-ranked Canadian in the tournament, tied for 31st. Countrymen Nick Taylor (71) and Adam Svenson (70) finished tied for 41st.
