Stewart Cink cruised to a four-shot victory at the RBC Heritage on Sunday to win the event for the third time and claim his second title of the 2020-21 PGA TOUR season.

The 47-year-old, who set both the 36- and 54-hole scoring records at the event after back-to-back rounds of 63 to open the week, shot a 1-under 70 in the final round at Harbour Town Golf Links. He now joins Bryson DeChambeau as the only other two-time winner this season.

Cink also won the Safeway Open in September to end an 11-year winless drought. Both of his most recent victories have come with his son, Reagan, as his caddie.

"I don't know if I have the words, it just keeps getting better," Cink said after winning, with the veteran's family by his side.

"It's just so great to have this whole family here, they mean so much to me," he added. "It (was) just a blast this week, I can't explain it."

Cink becomes only the fourth player since 1960 to win multiple times after turning 47, according to the 15th Club's Justin Ray. He joins Kenny Perry (who did it twice in 2008 and 2009), Julius Boros, and Sam Snead.

The win gives Cink eight career victories and moves him to No. 44 in the world rankings, his highest position since 2010.

Here's the final top of the leaderboard:

Place Player To Par Round 4 Score
1 Stewart Cink -19 70
T2 Harold Varner III -15 66
T2 Emiliano Grillo -15 68
T4 Maverick McNealy -13 67
T4 Corey Conners -13 68
T4 Matt Fitzpatrick -13 68
T7 Chris Kirk -12 67
T7 Collin Morikawa -12 72

Harold Varner III notched his best career result, tying for second alongside Emiliano Grillo.

Collin Morikawa birdied the first hole to quickly cut Cink's lead to three, but he struggled the rest of the way, finishing with a 72 and dropping into a tie for seventh.

The PGA TOUR heads to Louisiana next week for the Zurich Classic, the TOUR's only team event.
