Last year, Carl Petersson won and the year before it was Brandt Snedeker, also in 2009 it was won by Brian Gay, who has been wearing Sligo’s cool plaid designs for years.  It’s fun that many players in the tournament choose to embrace the plaid theme.

Polos for women with the all over Tartan print like this Defoor Ladies Plaid Short Sleeve Polo and for men a navy blue shirt with the Tartan collar, presumably to go underneath the Tartan jacket. To match the Ahead Tartan Plaid Hogan Hat with the Sea Pines logo in the back is perfect Cotton afghan with signature Tartan and the picturesque Harbour Town lighthouse.  to go overboard you can also purchase plaid golf balls, jackets, towels, and head covers .http://seapines.gostorego.com/get-your-plaid-on.html

The tournament is proud of its champions, some of the most distinguished players in golf’s history. In addition to Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Davis Love III and the late Payne Stewart are just a few of the names inscribed upon our champions’ trophy. The purse has grown from the original $100,000 to $5.7 million in 2012.  Some 100,000 fans attend the tournament each year and media exposure has also kept pace as it is broadcast in Europe, South America and Asia.  All of this translates into a stream of tourism and sales that pump the economics of both Hilton Head Island and the State of South Carolina. A Clemson Economic Impact Study said the tournament infuses $80 million into the state each and every year. RBC is the Official Banking and Financial Services partner of touring professionals Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Brandt Snedeker, Matt Kuchar, Luke Donald, Jim Furyk, Hunter Mahan, Mike Weir, Stephen Ames, and Morgan Pressel.
