Cink rolls back the years at The Heritage

Tour veteran strolls to a four shot victory at Harbour Town

Tour veteran Stewart Cink rolled back the years to take his third RBC Heritage title on Sunday, almost 21 years to the day from his first. The 47-year-old carded a final-round one-under-par 70 to register a second victory of the season, having won the season-opening Safeway Open back in September.

Cink, who set a blistering pace at the Heritage with a tournament record sixteen-under-par at the halfway mark closed with one-under 70 to secure a four-shot victory of closest rivals Emiliano Grillo and Harold Varner III.
"It was just a really good, solid week all the way through," said Cink
"It was pretty spectacular the first two days, it was like I could do no wrong. Then the weekend was just a bunch of solid hitting, nothing exciting, but enough."

The former Open Champion went into the final round with a five shot lead and kept his cool with an uneventful final consisting of two birdies and a solitary bogey.
The closest anyone got to Cink's lead was when American Varner birdied the last to take the clubhouse lead on fifteen-under. Varner was joined in second place by Argentinian Emiliano Grillo, who closed with a three-under 68.

England's Matthew Fitzpatrick shot a three-under 68 to finish in a three-way tie for fourth alongside Corey Conners of Canada and American Maverick McNealy.

Collin Morikawa, who started in the final group alongside Cink, had a disappointing final-round of 72, which dropped him down into a share of seventh on twelve-under alongside countryman Chris Kirk
Shane Lowry and Webb Simpson finished in the group on eleven-under in tied-ninth with world number one Dustin Johnson a further shot back.
