John Daly, Trevor Immelman, Kevin Kisner and Kevin Tway have all been granted sponsors exemptions into the 46th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing to be played April 17 through April 20 at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Two other sponsors exemptions have already been announced -- Beaufort native and former University of South Carolina golfer Mark Anderson and 2013 Players Amateur champion Hunter Stewart. Tournament officials still have two more spots to fill.

Daly joined the PGA Tour in 1991 and won the PGA Tour Championship that same year. Since then he has won four more times on the PGA Tour.

In 2011, he carded his first top-10 finish since 2005 at the RBC Canadian Open. Daly has played Harbour Town nine times since 1993 and has only missed the cut three times.

Immelman has earned two PGA Tour victories and six international championships since he turned professional in 1999, including the 2008 Masters. He also won last year on the Web.com Tour at the Hotel Fitness Championship. Last year, in his eighth RBC Heritage start, he finished tied for ninth.

Kisner, an Aiken native and University of Georgia graduate, will be making his second start at Harbour Town. He has earned two wins on the Web.com Tour, most recently at the 2013 Chile Classic.

Tway will be making his first start at the RBC Heritage. His win at the 2010 Players Amateur earned him an exemption into the 2011 event but it conflicted with his college golf schedule. The Oklahoma State Grad has one Web.com Tour victory. His dad, Bob, who earned eight wins on the PGA Tour including the 1995 MCI Classic, caddied for him at the 2012 PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament.
