RBC Heritage

45th annual Heritage tees off

Plaid will be everywhere today at Harbour Town Golf Links when the bagpipes play, the cannon fires and defending champion Carl Pettersson strikes the ceremonial tee shot to celebrate the opening of the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing.

The 45th playing of South Carolina's only PGA Tour event will open under partly sunny skies with a projected high of 76 and a chance of showers. Temperatures should be pleasant, with highs in the 70s, throughout the week.
