    Robert Streb is finally a winner on the PGA Tour again after he won the RSM Classic in a playoff at Sea Island on Sunday.

    Streb, who won this exact same tournament back in 2014, beat fellow American Kevin Kisner on the second playoff hole after a clutch wedge shot came within inches of the cup.

    Both players finished the final round on 19 under par after a spectacular seven-under-par 63 by Kisner on Sunday vaulted him up the leaderboard and into contention.

    Streb shot a final-round 68, which meant the two players returned to the 18th hole to determine the winner.

    After both making a par on the first attempt, it was Streb’s brilliant approach shot on the second that had him tap in for birdie, while Kisner settled for a par.

    ‘It was tough. I felt like things were starting to get a little better and I wasn’t quite getting the results, but I wasn’t expecting this, either,’ said Streb.

    In only his second-ever triumph on Tour, the 33-year-old was rather relieved that he was able to get over the line in what proved to be a tough battle in the end.

    ‘It’s really nice to say I’ve got more than one. Winning more than once validates what ability you have. It was just kind of unexpected and super nice to get.’

    Branden Grace, who was the only South African in action over the weekend by making Friday’s cut, ended his week in style with a pretty decent six-under-par 64 for the final round, finishing the event on 10 under par and in T30.
