CT Pan secured his maiden PGA Tour title with a one-shot victory ahead of Matt Kuchar at the RBC Heritage in SC.

The top-ranked Johnson, the third-round leader in his home-state event, had a 77 to tie for 28th at four under. He played a five-hole stretch in 7 over, making bogeys on Nos. "I just laughed." Johnson was smiling again at the par-5 15th, where he went into a greenside bunker with his second shot but blasted out to 13 feet and sank his birdie putt to seize the lead alone. Pan finished one shot ahead of the total posted by former champion Matt Kuchar, who was seeking his third win of the season. He's the fourth straight first-time victor of the RBC Heritage.

World number one Dustin Johnson overhauled halfway leader Shane Lowry to open up a one-stroke advantage after the third round of the windswept RBC Heritage in SC on Saturday. In the end it was CT Pan from Taiwan who shot 67 to claim his first PGA Tour victory.

Johnson won the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship in February and tied for second last week in the Masters.

Kuchar, the 2014 victor at Harbour Town, put together a charge of five birdies to tie Pan for the top.

Indian crypto proponents took to Twitter to express their disappointment with the RBI's decision. The same thing can be said for applications that have something to do with smart contracts.

However a dropped shot on nine and a double bogey on 12 after a wayward tee-shot dropped him back. The 21-year-old Henderson closed with a 2-under 70 at windy Ko Olina Golf Club for a four-stroke victory over Eun-Hee Ji.

"I feel like I've been driving it well", Johnson said. "And when that happened and I won my first major the year after, things kind of just started to fall into place".

"I'm just really happy that I have finally done it".

George Knudson and Mike Weir share the Canadian mark on the PGA Tour, also each winning eight times. "And holed out with a four and obviously that was huge", said Lowry, who went on to record his third bogey of the back nine on the 16th.
