03/22/2011

Six of this year's PGA TOUR champions, including two-time winner Mark Wilson, have already signed up to play in the 43rd annual Heritage at the Harbour Town Golf Links, April 18-24.

The other 2011 winners are Jonathan Byrd, Rory Sabbatini, Johnson Wagner, Michael Bradley and Jhonattan Vegas.

Vegas, the first person to win a TOUR event from Argentina, has been a tremendous crowd-pleaser since he began competing this season.  The long-hitting Vegas captured the Bob Hope Classic early this year.

Wilson, the veteran from Wisconsin is this year's current leading money-earner after taking both the Sony Open and the Waste Management Championship in Phoenix.

Byrd, the Anderson, S.C. native who now makes his home in St. Simons, GA, captured the season's opening event, the Hyundia Tournament of Champions.  Sabbatini, the veteran from South Africa, took the Honda Classic.

Johnson Wagner was the winner of the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico while Michael Bradley took the Puerto Rico Open last week.

These latest commitments join an earlier group that includes defending champion Jim Furyk, plus other Heritage champions -- Davis Love III, Stewart Cink, Boo Weekley and Justin Leonard.
