64-year-old Golfer, Tom Watson will be making a trip to the South Carolina Low Country, with a trip to Hilton Head Island to play in the RBC Heritage. Watson is a 2 time winner of the Heritage.
He won the tournament in 1979 and again in 1982. Tournament director, Steve Wilmot is excited with the return of the Hall Of Fame golfer Tom Watson. Not only is Watson coming to play at Harbor Town Golf Links, also joining the field will be CBS golf analyst Nick Faldo.
Faldo hasn’t played a PGA Tour even on American soil since, 2006. The golf course fits both of their games. Harbor Town is one of the tightest courses on the PGA Tour.
It has the smallest greens of any tour event, and finding the fairway is crucial to playing well on this tree lined course.
Watson’s swing hasn’t changed a bit with father time. He still makes the same perfectly timed effortless stroke he has made since turning pro back in 1971. If Tom Watson can find his putting stroke at Harbor Town, he could be a force to deal with come Sunday.
The RBC Heritage is a favorite spot for PGA professional players and has been for years. The tournament takes place following the Masters, and it is a place players love to visit, not only to compete in the Heritage, but to enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the South Carolina Low Country.
Having both, Tom Watson and Nick Faldo in this years RBC Heritage is certainly going to be exciting for golf fans everywhere.
The RBC Heritage takes place April 17th thru the 20th.
