Steven Bowditch, Harris English, Matt Jones and Kevin Na have all committed to compete at the 46th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing to be held April 17 through April 20 at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Bowditch just earned his first victory on the PGA Tour at this year's Valero Texas Open. The Aussie took the second-round lead and never looked back. Despite a 4-over 76 in the final round, he claimed a one-stroke victory over Will MacKenzie and Daniel Summerhays. He will be making his third start at the RBC Heritage.

English will also be making his third start at Harbour Town. The Valdosta, Ga. native graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011 and was a member of that year's Walker Cup Team. He has earned two PGA Tour victories including this season's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Jones became the second consecutive Australian to win on the PGA Tour in as many weeks by capturing the Shell Houston Open on Sunday. He posted a 15-under 273 in the second-to-last group, then watched as Matt Kuchar made bogey at the 72nd hole to force a sudden-death playoff. On the first extra hole, he chipped in from 42 feet for a birdie that allowed him to claim his first career PGA Tour title.

Na will be competing in the RBC Heritage for the 10th time. The South Korean native who now calls Las Vegas home has earned one win on the PGA Tour and has already carded four top-10 finishes this year.
