This week the PGA Tour heads to Hilton Head, S.C., and iconic Harbour Town Golf Links for the 2020 RBC Heritage, the second event of the re-started 2019-20 season. Here’s what you need to know to follow the opening-round action.

Previewing RBC Heritage Round 1

The RBC Heritage was originally scheduled to be played in April the week after the Masters. But with the PGA Tour shutting down for three months, the tournament was moved to this week. One benefit of the postponement is that, for the second week in a row, an astounding number of star players are in the field.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy will be there, along with the other four players in the Top 5 of the OWGR. Rory will try to avenge his disappointing final round at Colonial when he starts his campaign early on Thursday at 7:40 a.m. ET alongside Rickie Fowler and defending champion C.T. Pan.

WATCH: Bryson DeChambeau’s monster drives are too long for the RBC Heritage range

Bryson DeChambeau hasn’t won since 2018, but he finished one shot out of a playoff last week. He and his monster drives will have another go at it at Harbour Town. He tees off for the first round at 12:43 p.m. ET, playing with Webb Simpson and former Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III.

Another player to look out for in the first round is Jordan Spieth (7:18 a.m. ET with Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson). Spieth’s game is looking better and better, as evidenced by his performance last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. If Spieth gets off to a hot start on Thursday morning, it will draw a lot of interest to the event.
