Simpson, Johnson, Cauley and Stenson to Play in the RBC Heritage

Four more PGA TOUR Professionals are playing in in the RBC Heritage. Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Bud Cauley and Henrick Stenson have all committed to the 44th annual event, taking place April 9-15, 2012 over the Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island.

Simpson had his best year on the PGA TOUR in 2011. The Charlotte, N.C. resident carded two victories at the Wyndham Championship and the Deutsche Bank Championship. Those wins propelled him to number two on the FedExCup standings and the Money List. The Wake Forest grad will be making his fourth consecutive appearance at Harbour Town.

Johnson golfed his way into the hearts of Hilton Head when he chose to still play Harbour Town after winning the Masters in 2007. He came in sixth place that year, his best finish in his seven RBC Heritage starts. The Iowa native has won seven times on the PGA TOUR and earned more than $22 million since turning pro in 1998.

Cauley has played seven PGA TOUR events in 2012. His best finish was T13 at the Farmers Insurance Open. The Jacksonville, Florida resident turned pro in 2011 and made the cut in all but one event he competed in. The former Walker Cup Team member and All-American at Alabama won the 2009 Players Amateur and earned a spot in the 2010 Heritage.

Stenson competed at Harbour Town for the first time in 2011. He has earned two PGA TOUR victories and eight International Titles. The Swede, who now calls Dubai home, has a South Carolina connection. His wife, Emma, played golf at the University of South Carolina.
