On Sunday in Georgia it was Talor Gooch’s world and we were all living in it.

The 30-year-old shot a 6-under 64 in the final round of the 2021 RSM Classic at Sea Island to earn his first PGA Tour win at 22-under. Gooch’s last win came in 2017 at the News Sentinel Open on the Korn Ferry Tour.

The Oklahoma State product made it look easy from the start with birdies on Nos. 2 and 4 to make the turn at 2 under on the day. Playing with the lead, Gooch turned up the pressure on the rest of the field with more birdies on 10, 11, 13 and 15. With three holes to play, Gooch held a five-shot lead. Gooch made par on each of his final three holes to win by three shots. Mackenzie Hughes finished solo-second at 19 under, with Sebastian Munoz in third at 18 under.
