Heritage Golf Announcement Due Today

    South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem are scheduled to make a 1 p.m.. announcement today about the future of the Heritage golf tournament on Hilton Head Island, S.C.

   The tournament has been searching for a title sponsor with its future on the tour schedule hanging in the balance.

   Tournament director Steve Wilmot said during the event in April that there had been encouraging signs in the hunt for a title sponsor but declined to get into specifics. Tour players have been outspoken in their support of the tournament, which has been played at Harbour Town Golf Links for more than 40 years.
