Pettersson claims fifth PGA title

Sweden's Carl Pettersson won his fifth US PGA tour title at the weekend. Pettersson, who now joins Jesper Parnevik at the top of the list for most titles won by a Sweden on the American tour, shot a final round two-under-par 69 to take the Heritage Classic at Hilton Head in South Carolina by five shots from his closest challenger Zach Johnson.

Pettersson's last PGA Tour win came at the Canadian Open in 2010 Tour title.

"The swing felt good," Pettersson told reporters. "I felt calm. It was a great feeling today."

It's been a good week for Swedish golf with Peter Hanson finishing third in last weekend's US Masters.
