The final pairing at the RBC Heritage is making its way through the front side at Harbour Town, and it's Webb Simpson who has pulled even with 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman.
Hoffman started the day with a two-shot lead over Simpson, but for a moment early in Sunday's final round, it was the 2012 U.S. Open winner Simpson who had flipped the leaderboard to take a one-shot lead. The wind his howling at Hilton Head, with gusts getting close to 50 miles per hour and players happy to settle for pars. Simpson, however, opened with birdies on the his second and third holes of the day, while Hoffman struggled on the greens -- a stark contrast from his red-hot third round.
Hoffman regained the lead on the par-5 fifth hole at Harbour Town, moving to 11-under on a two-shot swing scenario with Simpson, who had a disappointing bogey. But Hoffman would quickly give that back on the next, to pull the final pairing even at 10-under. It's been a struggle for Hoffman so far, as he missed a couple short birdie opportunities early and is now holding on to try and save pars as he makes his way towards the turn.
One player who made the early push and is now right there with Hoffman falling back to the field is Luke Donald. The 2011 Heritage runner-up has historically played well at this Tour favorite layout, and he went out in 32 on Sunday to make a run at the top of the board before the final pairing got on the course. He's cooled off on the back side, bogeying two of his last four holes but he's still only two shots back at 8-under, alongside Graeme McDowell. Donald will have to hope that the final group continues to struggle with the wind, and try to pick up at least one more red number coming into the house.
