The purest, most fruitful father-son relationships are unbeatable, and Stewart and Reagan Cink proved that in grand fashion while sending many of us down a smiling, memory lane of our own Sunday at the RBC Heritage.
After an impressive victory at the Safeway Open, followed by another top-five finish in Bermuda, Stewart Cink knew his son Reagan needed to stay on his bag. Now, just a handful of months later, the father and son find themselves 18 holes away from a weekend to remember forever at the RBC Heritage.
The RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing is back in its traditional April slot on the schedule, and a very fortunate portion of Plaid Nation is back at Harbour Town Golf Links after a spectator-free 2020 tournament in June.

The job descriptions of a high school coach go far beyond collecting wins on the gridiron, field, or court. Sure, it's always important to build a winning team, but at the end of the day, it doesn't compare to the most important task: shaping and molding young men and women into extraordinary individuals for life.
Some student-athletes captivate a community with their incredible play on the field, and then some go beyond and inspire a whole new generation. Poona Ford has done both.
On Friday night, the Lowcountry lost one of its greatest young people we’ve ever seen. I was coming back from covering Hilton Head High’s state championship basketball game when the news of this heartbreaking tragedy shocked me in every way.
In 2002, Chane Brown and Hilton Head High’s basketball squad embarked on a magical run to South Carolina’s elite eight. Now, 19 years later, Brown has brought the magic back. In just his second year as head coach of his alma mater, Brown has guided his Seahawks to the precipice of an unthinkable state championship.
