What's In The Winner's Golf Bag: Kevin Kisner at The 2015 RSM Classic - Great Golf Deals.com Blog

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Kevin Kisner, who did everything this year but win, suddenly felt as though he had everything to lose.

"Just chilling," he said Sunday on the practice range at Sea Island -- only that wasn't necessarily the case.

Four times a runner-up when someone else simply played better this year, Kisner had a 3-shot lead in the RSM Classic. Expectations had never been higher. He battled to keep his mind off the prospects of ending the year with yet another close call.

"That was the hardest thing I had to deal with all day," he said. "Only thing you can do is win or fail in that position. Hard to keep yourself from thinking, 'What if it doesn't work out?' So I just wanted to go out and make birdies early and try to keep playing the way I was playing."

The golf was never easier.

Kisner took only 11 putts on the front nine -- five of them for birdie. He doubled his lead to 6 shots at the turn. In the final round of the final tournament of the year, Kisner finally captured his first PGA Tour title with a 6-under 64 for a 6-shot victory over Kevin Chappell.
