The RBC Heritage at Hilton Head is a better party than Augusta National, and the golf is pretty good, too
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Cutting through the players' parking lot on my way to the 10th tee, I crossed paths with a PGA Tour official who smiled and greeted me by saying, "This is better than the Masters, isn't it?"
I knew what he meant. This is the RBC Heritage, the second-best party on the tour behind the untied and undefeated champion, the Waste Management Phoenix Open (or Wasted Open, as some like to call it). The RBC Heritage is laid-back, like everything else here in Low Country. It's low-key. It's a great place to rest a Masters hangover, or maybe earn back a little redemption after a losing battle with Augusta National Golf Club's man-eating greens.
