Japan's Satoshi Kodaira clinched his maiden PGA Tour title with playoff victory over Si Woo Kim at the RBC Heritage.

Kodaira, who finished tied 28th at the Masters a week previous, overcame a six-stroke deficit in the final round before defeating Kim with a 24-foot birdie putt at the third extra hole.

The six-time Japan Tour winner now moves up to world number 27. 

Kodaira's bag is not one you see from a typical PGA Tour player as it is nearly filled with sticks from PRGR, which is a big brand in Japan, but known for little more in the U.S. than signing Corey Pavin at one time and producing pretty good utility irons.

Now as Kodaira prepares to play the PGA Tour full time, he has an opportunity to raise awareness of the brand on a weekly basis going forward.

England's Ian Poulter was going for a second win in three weeks but blew his narrow one-stroke lead heading into the final round with a dismal 76 to finish tied seventh.
