The 2020 RBC Heritage is going to be the second event on the PGA Tour calendar once the season officially starts up again Thursday.
The RBC Heritage will follow the Charles Schwab Challenge. The season was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A few PGA Tour golfers have participated in two charity events as states began to reopen. Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff took part in the TaylorMade Driving Relief at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Fla. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning played in Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Charity at Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla.
The RBC Heritage was set to take place in April before it was moved to June.
The RBC Heritage began play in 1969 with Arnold Palmer taking the win in the first event. The event was previously known as the Heritage Golf Classic (1969-1970), Sea Pines Heritage Classic (1971-1976, 1979), Heritage Classic (1977-1978), Sea Pines Heritage (1980-1986), MCI Heritage Golf Classic (1987-1994), MCI Classic (1995-2000), WorldCom Classic – The Heritage of Golf (2001-2002), MCI Heritage (2003-2005), Verizon Heritage (2006-2010) and The Heritage (2011).
The RBC Heritage was initially canceled a month before the PGA announced it was rescheduling the event.
