Grace secures maiden PGA Tour win


Branden Grace secured his first PGA Tour victory as he held off the challenge of Luke Donald at the RBS Heritage in South Carolina.

Donald held a one-shot lead heading into Sunday's final round but the Englishman could only manage a level-par 71 to miss out on his first title since 2013.

Having parred the opening six holes, Donald moved to eight-under for the tournament when he birdied the seventh only to give the shot back at the next hole following a poor tee shot. He recovered with a birdie at the ninth before giving it straight back at the tenth.

His failure to pick up a shot on the back nine was to prove costly as he signed for a 71 to finish two behind Grace.

"This is a great step in the right direction," Donald said. "I am really positive about my game going forward and I am pretty positive about the way I handled it today."

Grace birdied his first two holes and adding three more at the fifth, sixth and ninth, although he reached the turn in four-under following a bogey at the fourth.

He picked up two further shots at the 12th and 13 only to bogey his penultimate hole, but a five-under 66 was enough to secure his first-ever win on the PGA Tour.

"This is pretty much where my year kicked off last year, this put me on the map a little and I was really happy to get back," Grace said.

"I like the type of golf you have to play at this place and it has worked this week.

"I knew I was in there with a chance after a couple of nice putts on the back nine. I just had to stay patient and grind it and that's what I managed to do."
