HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — Emiliano Grillo and Keith Mitchell have committed to the 51st RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing. South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR event is taking place April 15-21, 2019 on Hilton Head Island.
They will join a field that includes defending champion Satoshi Kodaira and Team RBC Ambassadors Dustin Johnson and Webb Simpson. Team RBC Ambassadors and past champions Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker are also vying for a chance to win another Tartan jacket.
Grillo finished T2 at the CIMB Classic after recording a final-round 6-under 66. The Argentina native earned his first victory on the PGA TOUR at the 2016 Frys.com Open. He will be making his second start at the RBC Heritage.
Mitchell is a Georgia grad who grew up in Tennessee. He earned his first win on the PGA TOUR at this season’s Honda Classic by making a 15-foot, 6-inch birdie putt on the last hole to defeat Rickie Fowler and Brooks Koepka by one shot. He will also be competing at Harbour Town for the second time.
