Jordan Spieth snatched play-off victory at the RBC Heritage

Jordan Spieth secured a maiden victory of the season with a dramatic play-off win over Patrick Cantlay at the RBC Heritage.

Spieth overturned a three-stroke deficit on a thrilling final day at Harbour Town Golf Links, eagling two of his first five holes on his way to posting a five-under 66 and setting the clubhouse target at 13 under.

Cantlay moved alongside his Ryder Cup teammate after a final-round 68, before Spieth snatched the title with a brilliant up-and-down from the greenside bunker for a winning par at the first extra play-off hole.

Shane Lowry led with five holes remaining but found water on his way to a double-bogey at the par-three 14th, with the Irishman ending the week as one of seven players in a share of third.
