The RBC Heritage, known for much of its history as the Heritage Classic or simply the Heritage, is a PGA Tour event in South Carolina, first played 52 years ago in 1969.[2] It is currently played in mid-April, the week after The Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

The venue for its entire existence has been the Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island. The Harbour Town course, which frequently appears on several "Best Courses" lists, was designed by famed golf course architect Pete Dye, with assistance from Jack Nicklaus. In 1972, the first two rounds were played on both the Harbour Town Golf Links and the Ocean course at Sea Pines, with the final two rounds at Harbour Town.

Originally played in late November,[3] it moved to mid-September in 1973, March in 1974, and April in 1983. The inaugural champion in 1969 was forty-year-old Arnold Palmer, his first win in over a year.[2][3] Course co-designer Nicklaus won in 1975,[4] two weeks before his fifth Masters win. Davis Love III leads with five victories in the event, Hale Irwin and Stewart Cink have three, while seven others have won twice.

From 1987 through 2010, it was sponsored either by MCI (under both the "MCI" and "WorldCom" names) or its eventual purchaser, Verizon. The tournament operated without a title sponsor in 2011,[5] and the Royal Bank of Canada has been the title sponsor of The Heritage since 2012.[6] It is currently organized by The Heritage Classic Foundation.[7]

  • The course length at the inaugural event in 1969 was 6,655 yards (6,085 m).[3]

Invitational status

The Heritage is one of only five tournaments given "invitational" status by the PGA Tour,[8] and consequently it has a reduced field of only 132 players (as opposed to most full-field open tournaments with a field of 156 players). The other four tournaments with invitational status are the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Charles Schwab Challenge, the Memorial Tournament, and the Genesis Invitational. Invitational tournaments have smaller fields (between 120 and 132 players), and have more freedom than full-field open tournaments in determining which players are eligible to participate in their event, as invitational tournaments are not required to fill their fields using the PGA Tour Priority Ranking System. Furthermore, unlike full-field open tournaments, invitational tournaments do not offer open qualifying (aka Monday qualifying).

Field

The field consists of 132 players invited using the following criteria:[9]

  1. RBC Heritage winners prior to 2000 and in the last five years
  2. U.S. Open or PGA Championship winners prior to 2005 playing 15 events in prior year
  3. The Players Championship and major championship winners in the last five years
  4. The Tour Championship and World Golf Championships winners in the past three years
  5. Winners of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Memorial Tournament in the past three years
  6. Prior year U.S. Amateur winner (if still amateur)
  7. Winner FedEx Cup in the last five years
  8. Playing member of last named U.S. Ryder Cup team; current PGA Tour members who were playing members on last named European Ryder Cup team, U.S. Presidents Cup team, and International Presidents Cup team
  9. Top 50 Official World Golf Ranking through two weeks prior to the commitment deadline
  10. 8 sponsors exemptions – 2 from Web.com Tour finals, 2 members not otherwise exempt, and 4 unrestricted
  11. Commissioner exemption - 2 foreign players
  12. PGA Section (Carolinas) champion/player of the year
  13. Career Money Exemption
  14. Life members
  15. Top 125 from prior year's FedEx Cup points list, including top 125 (medical)
  16. Members in the top 125 non-member category whose non-WGC points equal or exceed the points by the player finishing in 125th on the prior year FedEx Cup points list
  17. Tournament winners (PGA Tour eligibility category 10)[10]
  18. Top 20 on current FedEx Cup points list through Friday prior to the tournament
  19. Next five available players not otherwise eligible from current year's FedEx Cup points list
  20. Remaining positions filled using standard PGA Tour eligibility ranking after top 125 non-member category
