Jim Furyk defeated Brian Davis on the first hole of a playoff to win the Verizon Heritage at Hilton Head Island Sunday afternoon. After finishing regulation at 13 under par, the golfers went back to the 18th tee for the playoff. Davis’s approach went into the hazard to the left of the green. On the takeaway of his third shot, Davis brushed a piece of debris and called a penalty on himself. The PGA Tour reviewed the shot and ruled a two stroke penalty. That basically handed the tournament over to Furyk who finished up with a par. It’s Furyk’s second win of the season and 15th of his career. Davis, a London native, was denied his first PGA Tour win. Furyk had a final round of 69 while Davis carded a 68. It’s his first Verizon Heritage win. He has finished twice second. As for the South Carolina contingent, Brett Quigley led the way at five under par. Bill Haas came in a two under.
