Play suspended 
        at RBC Heritage


Posted 4.18.14
Hilton Head Island, SC— Rain during most of the morning has continued into the afternoon and has forced suspension of play at the RCH Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. Several players were still on the course when the horn sound ending play for the day. The PGA has planned for an 8:00am start on Saturday and hope that they can finish the second round and begin third round play. It is unlikely that the third round will be completed on Saturday leaving Sunday to finish the third and fourth rounds.
     As it stands now, K.J. Choi is the leader at -5. Choi is followed by Robert Allenby at -4 with Scott Langley, Luke Donald, Billy Hurley III, Bo Van Pelt and Ben Martin at -2. Thursday’s first round leader Matt Kuchar is +4 through six holes today and is currently at -1 while Langley, also at -5 after Thursday’s round, finished today with a +2 73. The third leader from Thursday, William McGirt, who also managed to get in his second round before play ended today fired a +5 76 to finish at even par through 36 holes.

 
    Notes from Wednesday's
                 RBC Heritage

Posted 4.17.14

 

 

Hilton Head Island, SC-  Bad weather can be good for business inside the merchandise tent at the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.
     Tuesday's precipitation sent tournament spectators scurrying for umbrellas and rain jackets. Wednesday's cold weather had them scrambling for sweaters, fleece pullovers and hats. 
     "We've definitely moved the outerwear to the front of the racks," said Jane Ochs, an executive with Greg Norman clothing. 
     The Hilton Head Island golf tournament's merchandise shop was packed Wednesday morning with patrons trying on Greg Norman-brand quarter-zips and tartan jackets. Many were bundling up to stay warm outside the ropes.
     Store manager Caroline Dennison said she ordered another 400 pieces of cold-weather gear for overnight delivery. That's as many as the store started with at the beginning of the week.
     "The Weather Channel is our friend here," she said. "We can stay flexible and react to what our customers need."

     ELS ENCOURAGES SPECTATORS TO WEAR BLUE FRIDAY

    PGA Tour golfer Ernie Els is encouraging Heritage fans to wear blue Friday in support of his charity, which raises money for those affected by autism.

    Golfers and caddies will be wearing blue-and-white pins to raise awareness for the disorder that affects an estimated two million Americans, according to a news release.

      The four-time major champion has tailored his equipment to support his foundation, Els        For Autism. He'll use a special blue version of his signature lion golf-club head cover, the release said.

      Els' son, Ben, has been diagnosed with autism.
