HILTON HEAD, SC (April 14, 2018) - In the final round of the RBC Heritage, Doc Redman
(Raleigh, NC) once again played well. Paired with Masters and British Open champion Zach Johnson and defending tournament champion Wesley Bryan, Redman closed with a final round 1-over 72 to finish 1-under and in a share of 50th place.
With all Sunday tee times at Harbour Town Golf Links moved up due to impending weather later in the day, Redman played a steady final round carding three birdies and four bogeys. After teeing of on No. 10, Redman played his best golf from Nos. 2-6, carding three birdies in the four hole stretch.
During the stretch Redman had two birdie putts fall from inside four-feet and another from just inside 10-feet. His highlight shot during the run came on the par-4 6th when he stuck his approach from 167 yards out to two-feet setting up an easy birdie.
Redman, a sophomore at Clemson, has played in three PGA Tour events over the course of the last month making the cut twice. In his PGA Tour debut he made the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational before missing the cut at last weeks Masters. Redman will now return to school and prepare for postseason play, beginning with the ACC Championship next weekend.
ROUND THREE RECAP
Clemson sophomore Doc Redman continued his good play at Harbour Town Golf Links, shooting a 2-under 69 to get to 2 under par through 54 holes of the PGA Tour RBC Heritage.
Playing with tour pro Keith Mitchell, Redman bogeyed the first hole, but was flawless thereafter. He got back to even for the day (and the tournament) with a birdie on the par-5 5th hole, and then added birdies at the short par-4 9th and the par-4 16th.
At 2 under for the tournament, Redman is tied for 53rd.
Redman has drawn a premier grouping for the final round. With bad weather forecast, tee times have been moved up, and the players have been put in threesomes with a double-tee start. Redman will be playing with the defending champion in the event, Wesley Bryan, as well as Masters and British Open champion Zach Johnson.
The threesome will tee off of the 10th tee at 7:50 AM Eastern time.
ROUND TWO RECAP
Doc Redman is proving to himself that he can play with this best in the world. Competing in his third PGA Tour event in the last month Redman finds himself around for the weekend once again, making the cut for the second time, this time at the RBC Heritage.
The Clemson sophomore made his first career cut in his PGA Tour debut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month before missing the weekend in start number two last week at the Masters.
Redman punched his ticket to the weekend at Harbour Town Golf Links with consecutive rounds of even-par 71 that left him in a tie for 58th place as he made the cut on the number.
Beginning on the second nine on Friday, Redman was 2-under for the tournament through 11 holes before stumbling a bit with bogeys on the 3rd and 4th holes to drop back to even-par. A birdie on the par-5 5th followed moved Redman back into the red, however that was short lived as another bogey followed on the 7th. Trying to guide it to the house Redman was able to par the last two holes.
Overall through two rounds Redman has birdied six-times and bogeyed six-times with the rest pars. Redman will begin his third round at 8:44 a.m. playing with Keith Mitchell.
Joining Redman in the field this week was fellow amateur Philip Knowles. In the field by way of his win last year at the Players Amateur, Knowles a junior for North Florida, finished 3-over and just outside the cutline in his first start on the Tour.
Knowles opened in even-par 71 but struggled down the stretch of the second round signing for a 3-over 74. After a 1-under 35 front nine, Knowles just couldn't find a grove heading for home double-bogeying the 10th and bogeying twice more.
