2017 RBC Heritage Tournament Preview

RBC Heritage LogoAlthough the name has changed over the years, the Heritage Classic has been a PGA Tour event since 1969 and currently is known as the RBC Heritage. Following last week’s Masters where the famous Green Jacket was given out, The RBC Heritage has the Plaid Jacket (Tartan) that has been given out to the winner each year.

The RBC Heritage is played at the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island and was designed by Pete Dye. It has been labelled as one of the Best Courses in America many times over and is a great test of golf for the PGA Tour players that get their invitation to play.

I assume that you played in FanDuel's golf contest last week too. If you haven't, you need to join FanDuel now and take advantage of our Win or Play Again Fantasy Contest offer.
