The Field: RBC Heritage


Following commitments from former major winners Keegan Bradley, Davis Love III, and Geoff Ogilvy, the field for the 49th annual RBC Heritage has been finalized.

The famed Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island will once again host South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR event.

The last 11 winners (2016-2006) of the RBC Heritage will also be in the field, including defending champion Branden Grace, Jim Furyk (2015), Matt Kuchar (2014), and Graeme McDowell (2013).

Additionally, the field at Hilton Head includes former major winners Danny Willett, Jason Dufner, Martin Kaymer, and Webb Simpson, as well as former FedEx champions Bill Haas, Brandt Snedeker, and Billy Horschel.

Other big names competing for a share of the $6.5 million purse, include former world No. 1 Luke Donald, and fan favorites Ian Poulter and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston.
