HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — Stewart Cink, Brian Gay and Davis Love III are competing in 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 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links.
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.
Cink is a 2-time RBC Heritage champion, winning his first time competing at Harbour Town in 2000 and again in 2004. He has earned four additional titles on the PGA TOUR, including the 2009 British Open. In 2017, he was named the Payne Stewart Award winner. It is presented annually to a professional golfer who best exemplifies Stewart's steadfast values of character, charity and sportsmanship. He will be making his 20th consecutive start at Harbour Town.
Gay won the 2009 RBC Heritage by a record 10 strokes, topping Davis Love III's seven-stroke win in 1998. His 20-under 264 total broke Loren Roberts' previous tournament scoring record of 19-under in 1996. He has won four times on the PGA TOUR and will be making his 19th start at Harbour Town.
Love has earned 21 PGA TOUR victories, including five wins at Harbour Town Golf Links. The Sea Island resident and University of North Carolina graduate was only 23 when he won his first in 1987, making him the youngest champion. The 2016 Ryder Cup captain and World Golf Hall of Famer will be celebrating his 31st start at the RBC Heritage. In 2018, he competed against his son Dru, making it the first time three generations have competed at Harbour Town since Davis’ dad played in 1969 and 1970.
