Graeme McDowell beat Webb Simpson to win the 2013 RBC Heritage at Harbour Town. You can read my quick thoughts on the event here, but see below for the best GIFs from the event.
 
Carl Pettersson starts it off with a bang
 
As is tournament custom, the defending champion opens the event with a tee shot while a cannon goes off beside him. This year, that honour went to the Swedish Meatball, Carl Pettersson.

Adventures in wind
 
The Heritage is known for hosting one of the more windy events on the PGA Tour, and while it was pretty dormant for the first three days, Sunday’s final round made it quite tough for the players.

Billy Horschel is a little upset…
 
Horschel is known as a bit of a hothead, and well, he did little to dispute that theory on Sunday at Harbour Town after missing a birdie putt.

Been there.
 
Charley Hoffman’s tree trouble
 
I have no idea how Hoffman ended up as high on the leaderboard as he did. Every time I saw him on the weekend, he ended up in the trees.

Also, this official wants you to know that Hoffman’s ball is safe:

Ridiculous putt of the week
 
This putt by Simpson on Sunday at the 14th is insane. Taking out the putter from that far off the green and getting it as close as he did is amazing to me, especially after watching Jerry Kelly almost putt it in the water a few minutes prior from roughly the same spot.

Simpson’s putt for birdie was better than the final result, as a gust of wind pushed it further past the hole than it should have.Simpson-first-playoff-putt
 
The comebacker for par was missed, and McDowell ended up with the victory.
