Past Champs, Team RBC Ambassadors Commit To RBC Heritage

Four more past champions have joined defending champion Wesley Bryan and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson in committing to play in the 50th annual RBC Heritage presented by Boeing next month.

Past champions and Team RBC ambassadors Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell, and Brandt Snedeker will look to add another tartan jacket to their wardrobes when the Palmetto State’s only PGA Tour stop returns to Harbour Town Golf Links from April 9-15.

Furyk is the only two-time champion in the group and will make his 18th start at Harbour Town, where he won in 2010 and 2015. The 17-time PGA Tour winner will serve as the U.S. Ryder Cup captain in September.

Kuchar won the 2014 RBC Heritage in dramatic style, holing a bunker shot for birdie on the 18th hole to cap a final-round 64 and a one-stroke victory for his seventh PGA Tour win.

McDowell earned his second win on the PGA Tour at the 2013 RBC Heritage, defeating Webb Simpson in a sudden-death playoff.

Snedeker, the 2011 Heritage champ, will be making his 13th start at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Bryan announced his commitment to defend his title at Monday’s RBC Heritage Media Day. Bryan edged Luke Donald by one shot last April to become the first South Carolina native to win the Heritage and only the sixth player to do so in his first start at Harbour Town.

Johnson announced his commitment to make his first Heritage start since 2009 when he signed on as the newest Team RBC ambassador last month. The South Carolina native was at Harbour Town on Monday to film a television ad for RBC and made a surprise appearance during Media Day.
