HILTON HEAD: Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell defeated Webb Simpson at the first hole of a sudden-death playoff on Sunday to win the US PGA Tour’s Heritage tournament.

McDowell, the 2010 US Open champion, defeated the reigning US Open title holder Simpson with a par at the first playoff hole.

McDowell had fired an impressive two-under par 69 at wind-swept Harbour Town Golf Links, marred only by a bogey at the final hole that left him on nine-under 275.

He was joined there by Simpson, who carded an even-par 71 that included three birdies and three bogeys to force the playoff.

England’s Luke Donald also posted a 69 to share third place with American Kevin Streelman, who carded a 72 for seven-under 277.

Overnight leader Charley Hoffman struggled in the windy weather and his six-over 77 saw him fall into a tie for sixth place on five-under 279.

Langer claims honours

Bernhard Langer relied on his short game to bail him out of trouble early and he added to his impressive start to the season by shooting a 67 to win the inaugural Greater Gwinnett Championship by three strokes in Duluth, Georgia, on Sunday.

Jacquelin triumphs

Raphael Jacquelin claimed victory at the Spanish Open in Valencia on Sunday after edging out German Maximilian Kieffer in a marathon playoff at the ninth extra hole - the joint longest ever sudden death playoff on the European Tour. Both men finished alongside Felipe Aguilar on five under par for the tournament, but the Chilean was eliminated at the third playoff hole when a wonderful second shot from Jacquelin set up an easy birdie putt and Kieffer  putted in from off the green to match the Frenchman’s three.

The next five holes were then pared by both men before another sumptuous second from Jacquelin on their ninth trip up the 18th left him with a putt from less than 10 feet which he rolled in to seal it with a birdie.
