In a week that saw a number of familiar faces return to the golf spotlight, five-time U.S. Ryder Cup team member Stewart Cink stepped back into the PGA TOUR winner’s circle at the age of 47 with a victory at the RBC Heritage.

Cink, who picked up his third RBC Heritage title with the win, bested the field by four strokes and became just the fourth player age 47 or older to win multiple times in a season on TOUR since 1960, joining Sam Snead, Julius Boros and Kenny Perry. He picked up his first win of the 2020-2021 season last September at the Safeway Open, ending an 11-year drought following his victory at the Open Championship in 2009. With the win, Cink advances 13 spots in the U.S. Team ranking, up from 37 to 24.

The largest jump in the standings this week belongs to Harold Varner III, who finished at a career-best T2, catapulting the North Carolina native up 27 spots to 39th.

Not to be outdone, U.S. Team Captain Steve Stricker also picked up a W for the week, taking home the victory at the Chubb Classic, his sixth PGA TOUR Champions title.
