Positive developments for the Heritage
Posted 12/20/2010 2:00:00 PM
While the PGA Tour’s Heritage Classic
, played annually at Sea Pines
, is still in search of a title tournament sponsor, there have been several positive developments for the tournament over the past few weeks.
Jim Furyk, the 2010 winner of the Heritage, was named Player of the Year on the PGA Tour. Furyk, of course, will be back to defend his title in April, which provides a huge boost in terms of credibility for the 2011 tournament field. Along those same lines, the Tour named Rickie Fowler, another big fan of the Heritage and a regular in the field, Rookie of the Year.
Finally, in a wonderful display of support for the tournament, South Carolina native and 2009 U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover was on-hand at the tournament’s annual Sponsor Day. The fact that Glover volunteered his time to appear at the event speaks volumes in terms of just how much Tour players love their annual trip to Hilton Head Island.
