Heading to Harbour Town on Saturday. I've been there almost every year since Davis won in `87. Caddied in the pro-ams for a few years in high school. I even got to carry John Daly's bag on the 10th hole one year. Absolutely love the laid back atmosphere of this place.



I'm really looking forward to seeing DJ and how he does on this tight course with it's tiny greens. The wind is supposed to be nasty this weekend. Should make for some interesting golf.

    Yes, the same Steve Scott that lost the 1996 US Amateur final to Tiger Woods. He qualified and will be in the field this week.

    Someone has to be the week after The Masters. This tournament has been in this spot for more than three decades, so I think they're satisfied with the date.

    I love this course. Classic course where you don’t have to hit long to succeed. It has a great list of past winners.

    I love watching the pros play Harbor Town. I was lucky enough to play it while my wife and I were honeymooning in Hilton Head.

    I like this tournament but they now qualify for the ugliest lighthouse with it's commercial flair.



    What's next for the PA Tour, backwards signs with commercial signage (eye pollution) as they do on European Tour events; most likely.

    Hopefully he'll perform well enough to be shown on the broadcast.



    Even the featured group Sunday, they were showing all of Spieth shots, and zero of JT, even though same group. one thing that really irks me about watching golf.

    Love the tournament, love the course. Played there on a golf trip a few years ago. Golfers I enjoy following such as DL3 and Luke Donald tend to play well there so makes for an enjoyable experience.

    Even though there’s no King Phil, it’s still a very good field. Surpringly so, given it’s a week after the Georgia Invitational event.



    Leishman will definitely win this. I’d like to see Watney do well too.

    There's a good spot between the 10th and 16th fairways where you can catch a lot of the action later in the day. I usually spend most of my time there.



    I also like to hang out around the 16th green where you can also watch the tee shots on the very challenging part 3 17th.



    You can't beat sitting around the the 18th green and watching the approach shots. Lots of guys miss the green. Especially when it's windy, which it usually is.



    Behind the 9th green is pretty cool too. It's a short hole with a lot of interesting strategies being used.



    Other than that, I would just walk the other holes just to see the rest of the course. You should have a great time. Unless you are only going on Sunday, then it could be a washout. There's a good chance it'll be a Monday finish.

    I like watching this tournament. Course has such a different feel from most of what I see on TV. Some of the tee shots look very difficult.



    Looking forward to seeing DJ and Fitzpatrick duke it out.

    Strip clubs? Nada. Our company's president has a second home there. He has this thing about tequila - keeps at least 30 different types in the house.

    After a few shots it all tastes like tequila.

    The thing I like about Heritage is that it gives an idea into what the Tour would be like if 90% of the courses were set up differently.



    Wesley Bryan wins last year. Currently 2nd last on the entire Tour in Driving Distance at 273 yards.

    2nd is Luke Donald, T167 in Driving Distance at 288 yards.

    Also in the top 10 are McGirt (125), Brian **** (188), Harman (153)



    Previous winners



    Furyk has won it twice - Last time he ranked in 2017, he was bottom of Driving Distance at 271 yards

    Kuchar - T148 in Driving Distance

    McDowell - T157

    Snedeker - T153

    **** - 188

    Weekley - T116 in 2017

    Baddeley - T118

    On the other hand, Davis Love won there 5 times. Tom Watson won twice. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman are also long hitters that have won there. So if Dustin Johnson wins, it shouldn't be a total surprise.

    DJ plays for the 1st time due to sponsorhip agreement, maybe he never played before because he didn't like the course even though he's native to SC. Would love to see how he fares this week.

    As much as I enjoy the Masters, this tournament is like a delicious dessert after an excellent dinner. Although I've never played the course in real life, I've probably played 300 rounds "virtually" on Tiger Woods 2012 and Links 386 back in the day. I just love this course and this region. Definately on the bucket list to attend the tournament and someday play 18 holes here. In fact, I hope to retire somewhere in this area - I like it that much. The food, the people, the scenery, the water, and the history of the area is just wonderful.



    Looks like they have an excellent field and this should be a very entertaining weekend. I actually dont mind that the weather where I live will be crappy this weekend, that means I'll have more time to watch.
