A steady one-under 71 on the final day saw Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri finish tied 44th at the Harbour Town Golf Links in the RBC Heritage here.

Lahiri started superbly with four-under 67 and then added 70 in the second round, still in a position to go for a top 20 finish. But a third-round 75 spoiled his chances.

Lahiri, who is 66th on FedEx Cup standings, will now head to the Texas for the next event on the PGA Tour.

His best has been tied third spot at the CIMB Classic in this season.

Meanwhile, Wesley Bryan came back from four-shots behind to win his home state tournament, closing with a four-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Luke Donald.

Bryan, a South Carolina native, who played college golf, got into contention with four straight birdies on the front nine. He took the lead with a birdie on the 15th hole and finished at 13-under 271.

Bryan earned USD 1.17 million, a Tour exemption through the 2018-19 season and a spot in the 2018 Masters.

Donald shot 68 in his latest close call at Harbour Town Golf Links — it was his fifth second-place finish here since 2009.

Ollie Schniederjans, Patrick Cantlay and William McGirt were tied for third, two strokes behind Bryan. Schniederjans shot 68, Cantlay 67 and McGirt 69.
