Hilton Head, SC – The final round of the RBC Heritage wrapped up in Hillton Head today, Sunday April 17th. At first, it seemed like it would be a Cinderella story for Luke Donald, as he battled with Branden Grace for first. Donald hasn’t won a tournament since 2012. However, Grace would end up winning his first PGA tournament, becoming the 2016 RBC Heritage Champion.

Grace says “It’s obviously a dream come true, something special. I was looking forward to this week, and it makes it more worthwhile. It was fun, knew it would be a tough day, winds weren’t as strong as the last couple days but with the new greens being so firm, you can’t go for things and you have to stay patient. Take opportunities when they come your way. Did well today. That was the key and obviously trying not to make mistakes coming in.”

Grace is projected to move up 71 spots in the FedEx Cup Points.
