Usually the Texas Open follows the Masters, but we’re headed to Hilton Head for The Verizon Heritage, The Heritage, the RBC Heritage! I love this event. I think it’s a great follow up to the Masters. Also, it’s hosted by a Canadian Bank. They also host the RBC Canadian Open and are a great sponsor to a lot of golfers like Luke D and Kuchar.
Defending champ Brandt Snedeker rolls into town after a 2011 playoff with Luke Donald. Both are back this year after both making the cut at Augusta.
This is event 3/5 in Month 4 and Event 15 overall.
