Charles Howell III wins RSM Classic in playoff

The final round of the RSM Classic takes place in Sea Island, Ga.

Stay here for live coverage throughout the day Sunday.

UPDATE No. 7 (5 p.m. ET): Charles Howell III has done it!

After Rodgers misses, Howell buries his 12-footer to win. This is his first PGA Tour title in 11 years!!

UPDATE No. 6 (4:52 p.m. ET): Howell hits a beauty that finishes 12 feet left of the hole pin-high. Rodgers can’t control it as well from the rough, but he still hits a nice one that finishes about 20 feet left and beyond the pin.

A pair of birdie putts upcoming.

UPDATE No. 5 (4:47 p.m. ET): Another driver in the right side of the fairway for Howell here at the 18th. Rodgers launches one but it does trickle into the right rough. He hit it well down there, though, a good deal past Howell.

So the advantage here is unclear at the moment.

UPDATE No. 4 (4:43 p.m. ET): Wow, was that intense.

Rodgers’ putt was never online and he taps in for par. Howell has a putt for the win again after facing one in regulation. He makes a good stroke, but the ball agonizingly curls let and below the cup at the last second. That’s an easy par, but he was inches from victory.

We will head back to 18 tee now.

UPDATE No. 3 (4:38 p.m. ET): Rodgers from the first cut hits a solid shot that finishes about 20 feet left of the cup.

Howell follows with a decent shot that was close to spectacular. It lands just right and in front of the green and barely hops forward. He’s about a foot off the green and about 18 feet below the cup. He’ll putt that for birdie. If Howell hadn’t gotten a harder hop on the landing, this ball might’ve rolled within 10 feet of the cup.

UPDATE No. 2 (4:33 p.m. ET): Howell finds the right side of the fairway on this first playoff hole (the par-4 18th). Rodgers’ tee shot sneaks into the first cut of rough on the right it appears. Advantage: Howell.

UPDATE No. 1 (4:20 p.m. ET): Charles Howell III and Patrick Rodgers are in a playoff after both finishing at 19 under.

Here is the order for playoff holes.
