The 2017 RBC Heritage Golf Tournament #PLAIDNATION
The RBC Heritage, South Carolina’s only PGA golf tournament, is played at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. The 7,099 yards, par 71 course was designed by Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus is one of the shortest layouts on the PGA TOUR schedule.
FEDEXCUP: Winner receives 500 points.
Charity: The Heritage Classic Foundation, which has given more than $35 million to outlets in South Carolina and Georgia since its 1987 start.
Defending Champion: Branden Grace
Grace came back from a three-shot deficit in the final round with a 5-under-par 66, clutching his first PGA TOUR title to win the tartan jacket.
Tournament Info: It’s the coming-back-out party for Harbour Town and Hilton Head Island, which suffered the worst damage from Hurricane Matthew’s tear up the southeastern coast last October. Thousands of trees were felled by the storm, and cleanup still can be seen on parts of the island.
Jim Furyk will be, teeing it up at Harbour Town for the first time since he won the event in 2015, missing last year after undergoing wrist surgery.
Since the Heritage moved to the post-Masters slot in 1983, only six players have won without playing the prior week at Augusta National.
Five of the past six winners are also RBC ambassadors: Furyk (2010, ’15), Kuchar (’14), Graeme McDowell (’13) and Snedeker (’11).
Catch all of the action.
