Four members of Team RBC -- Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Matt Kuchar and Hunter Mahan -- have committed to compete at the 46th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing to be held April 14 through 20 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links.

Graeme McDowell, Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker, all previously committed, are also members of Team RBC.

Donald has earned five victories on the PGA Tour to go with eight International titles. The Englishman now calls Chicago home since graduating from Northwestern University with a degree in Art Theory and Practice. He has competed at Harbour Town eight times and has finished second or third in half of those tournaments.

Els is one of the most successful golfers in the history of the game, having won 70 tournaments since turning professional in 1989, including four major championships, two World Golf Championships and a record seven World Match Play titles. He has competed at Harbour Town 14 times, carded six top-10 finishes and earned more than $1.3 million.

Kuchar enjoyed a great 2013 season, earning two of his six wins on the PGA Tour. His victories at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and the Memorial Tournament helped him finish the season in second place on the FedExCup Standings. He has competed in the RBC Heritage 10 times since turning pro in 2000.

Mahan is one of four golfers in the PGA Tour exclusive boy band "Golf Boys" (the other three golfers are Rickie Fowler, Ben Crane and Bubba Watson). The California native and Texas resident has earned five PGA Tour victories and will be making his third start at Harbour Town.
