HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC – Beau Hossler, Doc Redman and Vijay Singh will be competing in the 50th annual RBC Heritage. South Carolina’s annual PGA TOUR event is being held April 9-15, 2018 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island, S.C.
They will join a field that already includes defending champion Wesley Bryan and Team RBC Ambassador and number one ranked player in the world Dustin Johnson. 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.
Hossler is having an impressive freshman year on the PGA TOUR. The 23-year-old has carded three top-tens, highlighted by a runner-up finish after a playoff with Ian Poulter at the Houston Open. The California native, who now calls Texas home, is making his first appearance at the RBC Heritage.
Redman is also making his first start at Harbour Town. The amateur golfer, who attends Clemson University, earned his spot by winning the 2017 US Amateur Championship. He was also a member of last year’s Walker Cup Team and has competed in the Heritage Classic Foundation’s Players Amateur tournament held each July.
Singh carded five birdies in the first round of this week’s Masters to finish the day tied for first. He has earned 34 wins on the PGA TOUR since turning pro in 1982. Fiji’s only PGA TOUR golfer also has 2 wins on the Champions Tour. He is making his 15th start at Harbour Town.
