Scottie Scheffler earns 4th win in last 5 starts at RBC Heritage

The RBC Heritage is held each April at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island. This year’s Heritage Signature Event hosted 69 of the best players on PGA Tour, offering a not cut format, with a $20 million purse and a $3.6 million winner’s share.

The Heritage Tournament, for its entire existence, has been held at the Harbour Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island. The Harbour Town par 71, 7,000 yards course was designed by famed golf course architect Pete Dye, with assistance from Jack Nicklaus.


J.T. Poston 8-under had a banner first day on Harbour Town Golf Links with 9 birdies. Both Collin Morikawa 6-under (7 birdies, 1 bogey) and Seamus Power 6 -under (7 birdies, 1 bogey) managed to keep things close.

“At the end of the day, we’re out here competing against the best players in the world.” Scheffler said.” I love competing against these guys, and I’m looking forward to the challenge of coming out and competing tomorrow.”

The Leaderboard was a busy place during the final round as a number of players took their turn closing in on Scheffler only to find themselves falling quickly back into the pack.

As the last group of Scheffler 19-under and Sepp Straka 14-under made the turn to the home nine, the rain and wind began to intensify, Scheffler held a 4-stroke lead over the rest of the field.

A weather delay was called at 4:28 p.m. due to lightning in the area. Play resumed at 7 p.m with Scheffler 19-under on the 12th hole at the top of the leaderboard.

Play was suspended due to darkness at 7:45 p.m. with 8 players still on the course. Play resumed at 8 a.m. Monday morning. Scheffler 20-under was still the leader by 5 strokes with 3 holes to play.

Even “Mother Nature” couldn’t stop Scottie Scheffler 19-under from wining again this week! He managed to finish his final round on Monday at the top of the leaderboard for his first RBC Heritage win and his 4th Tour win in the last 5 weeks.

Scottie Scheffler 19-under won the 2024 RBC Heritage. He received the Famous Heritage Plaid Jacket, the “Sir William Innes” Champions Trophy and a check for $3.6 million along with 750 FedExCup points.

When asked by a reporter after the final round. “Scottie, can you describe your evolution as a player to a champion from week one until now?” He replied. “I’m not really sure. I think I’m just maturing as a person on the course. I think mentally the last month or so has been as good as I’ve been in a long time. I think that’s why I’m seeing some of the results just staying in it doing the best I can. A lot easier said than done, but I’m proud of how I’ve been mentally on the course.”

10th career PGA TOUR title and fourth this season
