Sea Island - Chris Kirk made a clutch 10-foot birdie at the 17th hole to secure to a one-shot victory at the $5.5 million McGladrey Classic in Georgia on Sunday.

The Georgia native took advantage of Briny Baird's bogey at the final hole, making a tap-in par to secure his second victory on the PGA Tour.

He carded a 66 to finish at 14-under-par 266, while fellow American Baird (67) and South African Tim Clark (62) tied for second on 13-under at the Seaside Course on Sea Island.

Kirk, 28, collects $990 000 and an invitation to next year's Masters.

"It's unbelievable to be here at Sea Island, at my home," he told Golf Channel.
