The professional field for the 2013 RBC Heritage Tournament at The Sea Pines Resort has not been announced yet, but it traditionally is one of the most star-studded of all tournaments. It has been voted the most popular event of the year by the PGA Tour players themselves several times and they love coming. Because it is on laid back, family-friendly Hilton Head Island, many players who normally travel alone look forward to bringing their families. Also, because it follows immediately after the Masters, in nearby Augusta, GA, which attracts all the top players from every corner of the world, many stay and make the short trip here, so the Heritage usually attracts a very strong field of the world’s top players. Finally, the tournament was expanded this year from 132 to 144 players. Past champions here are a Who’s Who of Hall of Famers, including Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo, Hale Irwin, Bernhard Langer, Greg Norman, Nick Price, and Tom Watson.
