2017 RBC Heritage - Wesley Bryan Wins

The 2017 RBC Heritage golf tournament in Hilton Head marked the first time in their 49-year history
Wesley Bryan played with confidence at RBC Heritage
that a South Carolina native took home the tartan jacket. Wesley Bryan is a 2012 graduate of the University of South Carolina, and this PGA Tour rookie played four days of solid golf in perfect weather, propelling him to a one-shot victory over a veteran field of golf’s top competitors.

The final round score reveals that former Gamecock golfer Bryan finished 4-under par that day, shooting a score of 67, to finish 13-under par for the tournament. He started the day four strokes behind several other players, but in the end those leaders faltered and Bryan played with remarkable composure to outlast them all. When Bryan completed the 18th hole, he could not celebrate before other players on the course were mathematically eliminated. The Plaid Nation was at first patient, and then so proud, to celebrate their native son winning on Easter Sunday.

Bryan is well known to social media followers for a series of golfing trick shot videos that he and his brother George have produced, garnering many You Tube views. Bryan has spent time on the Tour, and was voted their 2016 Player of the Year, after winning three events last year. Bryan even has ties to the Lowcountry, since he represents the Kiawah Island Golf Club on the PGA Tour. With the 50th edition of the RBC Heritage next year, Bryan will be at the center of attention during all the fanfare leading up to the springtime spectacle at the Sea Pines Resort.
