RBC HERITAGE RECEIVES COMMITMENT FROM PGA TOUR’S TOP PLAYERS TO COMPETE IN 2023
October 19, 2022
2023 RBC Heritage will feature an elevated purse of $20 million
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022) – On Wednesday, the PGA TOUR announced the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing would be one of four events with an elevated purse of $20 million along with a commitment from TOUR’s top players to compete at the 2023 event. The other three events are the WM Phoenix Open, the Wells Fargo Championship and the Travelers Championship. The four events join eight others announced by PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan in August at the TOUR Championship.
Each of the 12 events will feature the $20 million purse and a competitive commitment from the top 20 PGA TOUR members from the 2022 Player Impact Program. The Player Impact Program rewards the 20 TOUR members who positively impact the TOUR, both on and off the course. This means RBC Heritage fans can buy tickets today knowing the TOUR’s top stars will be competing April 10th – 16th at Harbour Town.
The RBC Heritage was chosen for several reasons including RBC’s commitment, the tournament’s position on the 2023 PGA TOUR schedule, its storied history and recognizable venue. Both the field makeup of 132 players and eligibility criteria remain unchanged.
“It’s a really exciting day for our team and we share that excitement with our Hilton Head Island community,” said RBC Heritage tournament director Steve Wilmot. “It is a true honor to be chosen to become an elevated event on the PGA TOUR. Our fans and sponsors are now guaranteed to see the top players compete and we couldn’t ask for much more than that. We couldn’t do this without RBC, Boeing, our sponsors and volunteers and of course our loyal fans. This collective support continues to deliver a large economic and charitable impact across the State of South Carolina. I’m confident that without this support from our community, this opportunity would not have been possible.”
