Sunday, April 18: Former UTEP golfer J.P. Hayes played at the PGA's Verizon Heritage Golf Tournament in Hilton Head, South Carolina, and finished in a tie for 14th at 6-under par. Hayes shot: 69-68-72-69-278, while the tournament was won by Jim Furyk in a playoff over Brian Davis. Brian Davis called a two-stroke penalty on himself on the first playoff hole Sunday to give Jim Furyk a victory at the Verizon Heritage. Davis, an Englishman who's never won on the PGA Tour, used a birdie on the 72nd hole to force the extra hole. However, Davis' approach rolled off the green of the lighthouse hole and into some rocks. As Davis attempted to chip on, his wedge moved a loose reed in
the marshy area. Davis quickly called for a rules official, who after calling colleagues to check the replay, confirmed the penalty. "I thought I saw movement," Davis said. "It's a disappointment." Davis conceded to Furyk before the world's sixth-ranked player putted out. Furyk shot a 69 to finish at 13-under 271. The victory was his 15th PGA Tour win and second since March, earning him $1.026 million.
