winning WITB – Satoshi Kodaira – PGA tour RBC Heritage 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a big weekend in Hilton Head S.C  for Satoshi Kodaira as he rallied from 5 strokes back to shoot 66 on the final day at the R.B.C Heritage and get into a playoff with si woo Kim the 2017 players champion.

 

 

 

After both making par at the first 2 playoff holes, Kodaira, who has won a total of 6 events on the Japan Golf Tour  struck an 8 iron to 24 feet on the 17th hole at harbour town and dispatched the putt for his first PGA Tour title in just his 15th start.

Kodaira’s bag is not one you see from a typical PGA Tour player as it is nearly filled with sticks from PRGR, which is a big brand in Japan, but known for little more in the U.S. than signing Corey Pavin at one time and producing pretty good utility irons. Now as Kodaira prepares to play the PGA Tour full time, he has an opportunity to raise awareness of the brand on a weekly basis going forward.
