Furyk wins Heritage playoff after Davis penalty

Apr 18, 2010 8:32:00 PM - thestate.com
Jim Furyk won The Heritage on Sunday after Brian Davis called a penalty on himself during a playoff.

Davis hit his second left of the green and into a hazard populated by sand and rocks. Furyk was on the back fringe and lagged his birdie try to four feet, then waited for Davis.

After mulling his options, which included a penalty, a drop and a chip at par, Davis elected to try and hit his third from the sand. He blasted out 30 feet past the flag, then immediately called for PGA Tour rules official Slugger White.

Davis told White that on his backswing, his club hit a dead branch. White deemed it a two-stroke penalty and Davis had 30 feet for double-bogey with Furyk in tight for par.

"It was classed as a loose impediment," said Davis. "Shouldn't have hit it in the hazard. What can you do? It's one of those things we all live by. Live by the rules."
