If you're going to try and find a suitable tournament to
come directly after The Masters, you could do a lot worse than playing at
Hilton Head in South Carolina.
The RBC Heritage kicks off Thursday at Harbour Town Golf
Links with $5.8 million on the line and Graeme McDowell the defending champion.
Masters champion Bubba Watson isn't in the field, but that
hardly means the stars won't be shining.
McDowell will begin his defense at 8:20 a.m., on course with
Brandt Snedeker and Bill Haas.
Other notable pairings include phenom Jordan
Spieth with legends Davis Love III and Tom Watson at 12:40 p.m.
Matt Kuchar didn't let a little thing like a near miss at
The Masters get him down Thursday in the first round of the RBC Heritage in
Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Kuchar didn't hit a single bogey as he fired a 5-under 66 to
lead the tournament after a round, tied for first with Scott Langley and
Harris English is fourth with a 3-under 68, followed by a
crazy group of 15 players at 2-under, including Masters' co-runner-up Jordan
Spieth was particularly impressive considering the company he kept on
Thursday, shooting in a trio with Davis Love III and Tom Watson.
Love fired a 1-under 70, while Watson, who hasn't played the
Heritage in 13 years, wound up 4-over with a 75.
Less than half of the players in the field at the RBC
Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina, finished their second rounds on
Friday, meaning extra golf will take place early on Saturday morning in an
effort to get back on track.
One of those who did get his full round in was South Korea's
K.J. Choi, who fired a 4-under 67 to rise to 5-under for the tournament, making
him the current leader in the clubhouse.
Tied for 20th after Day One, Choi piled up six birdies to
race into the lead.
Day One co-leader Cott Langley dropped back to a tie for
third after struggling to a 2-over 73, while Australia's Robert Allenby is temporarily in second at 4-under, but only completed five holes on
It's a five-way tie for third at 3-under at the moment, but
only Langley, Billy Hurley III and Luke Donald have finished the second round.
A further six players are tied for eighth at 2-under, but
only half of those had finished their round by the final call on Friday.
Nowhere in sight of the leaderboard were Day One co-leaders
Matt Kuchar and William McGirt.
After notching a 66 on Thursday, McGirt was 10
strokes worse, finishing with a 5-over 76 to drop into a tie for 24th at even
McGirt was at even par on the day through 12, but the wheels came off the
wagon from there, as he bogeyed five of
his last six holes.
Kuchar had to call it a round after his first six holes
because of the weather, but likely was thankful for that.
Kuchar hit double
bogeys on No. 4 and 6 and is 4-over through six, sending him into a tie for
16th at 1-under.
Another day, another new leader at the RBC Heritage Open in
Hilton Head, South Carolina.
On Saturday, it was England’s Luke Donald taking the step up
the leader board, tying the tournament low with a 5-under 66 to take a
two-stroke lead through 54 holes.
Donald had a wild front nine: an eagle on No. 2, bogeys on
3, 6 and 7 and birdies on 5 and 8. He smoothed things out on the back nine with
four birdies to take command.
American John Huh rose from 24th up to second, shooting a
second consecutive 68.
Four players are tied for third: South Africa’s Charl
Schwartzel and Americans Nicholas Thompson, Ben Martin and Jim Furyk, all at
Day Two leader K.J. Choi took a big step back, struggling to
a 3-over 74 to plummet from the top of the leader board to a tie for 16th.
was 1-under through five, then hit back-to-back bogeys and followed that with a
double on No. 12.
