Northern Irish golfer Graeme McDowell held his nerve in fierce winds to clinch his second PGA Tour title with a playoff victory over US Open champion Webb Simpson at the Heritage Classic in South Carolina.

McDowell sealed the win with a regulation two-putt par at the first extra hole, the 18th, where Simpson bogeyed after missing the green to the right with his approach.

The pair had finished the 72 regulation holes on nine under par, McDowell three-putting to bogey the last for a two-under 69 and Simpson closing with a 71 in gusting winds at Harbour Town Golf Links.
