HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) – Heritage Week is happening on Hilton Head Island. Tuesday was the first day fans were allowed on the course for the week, and the tournament is back without restrictions for the first time since 2019.
This tournament sold out completely out of tickets last week, and that showed today from the opening ceremonies this afternoon to simply walking with the players on their practice rounds. .
Another well-attended event was Putt with the Pros, where all under-15s got some tips on the green from the pros who will be taking on Harbor Town this week.
The line for the event included hundreds of children and their families, and it stretched well beyond the first tee.
A longtime member of the Heritage Classic Foundation said today’s putt crowd for the pros was about three times larger than normal.
These kids were also ready to go, including one who called it a dream come true to get this advice from the pros.
Now many of those kids think they will see an improvement in their own game.
“He helped me hold my finish, which certainly helped me a lot. Hopefully I can drain more putts like this,” said RBC Heritage fan Ryan George.
“Putting is one of my favorite things in golf. I really want to start throwing,” said RBC Heritage fan Henry Brannan.
The 54th RBC Heritage Week is underway and COMC will be covering it all week.
