For the first time in the 50-year history of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, a South Carolina native is the defending champion. A number of players with Palmetto State ties will try to repeat history later this month.
Six more players with ties to South Carolina have committed to the field, with Scott Brown, Lucas Glover, Bill Haas, Kevin Kisner, Ben Martin, and William McGirt joining defending champion Wesley Bryan and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson at Harbour Town Golf Links from April 9-15.
They join a field that already includes Team RBC ambassadors and past champions Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell, and Brandt Snedeker, as well as past champions Aaron Baddeley, Stewart Cink, Glen Day, Brian Gay, Davis Love III, Carl Pettersson, Branden Grace, and Boo Weekley.
Some of the other notable players who have committed to the tournament include five-time runner-up Luke Donald, and major champions Zach Johnson, Martin Kaymer, Jason Dufner, and Charl Schwartzel, as well as highly-ranked Englishmen Paul Casey and Tyrell Hatton.
