Portrush's Graeme McDowell has said he was 'really happy with the win' after fending off Webb Simpson to take the PGA Tour RBC Heritage in South Carolina.

He took the title following a playoff with the 2012 US Open winner.

McDowell finished nine shots under par with a closing round of 69.

McDowell sealed the win with a two-putt par at the first extra hole - the 18th - where Simpson bogeyed after missing the green to the right with his approach shot.
