Major Champs Commit To Heritage

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Former Masters winners Zach Johnson and Trevor Immelman and reigning U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell have committed to play in next month’s Heritage at Hilton Head Island.
The tournament announced Monday the three major champions would play. The PGA Tour event begins a week later than usual this year, running from April 21-24. The tournament had typically been played the week following the Masters but was moved this year.

Johnson took the 2007 Masters while Immelman won at Augusta National a year later. McDowell earned his first victory on the PGA Tour last year at the U.S. Open. He was also a critical component to the European team that captured the Ryder Cup last year.

McDowell has not competed at Harbour Town Golf Links since 2005.
