RBC Heritage working to keep backing

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - RBC Heritage tournament director Steve Wilmot doesn't want to return to the dark, sponsorless days of just a few years ago when his longtime PGA Tour stop didn't know if it would make it through to the next year. So everyone connected with the event is making sure that won't happen.

New construction on a $20 million clubhouse at Harbour Town Golf Links started shortly after Matt Kuchar's chip-in on the 72nd hole lifted him to victory Sunday. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem was there early in the week to participate in discussions with lead sponsors Royal Bank of Canada and Boeing to extend backing past the five-year deal that ends in 2016.

Wilmot says sponsors are happy and Sea Pines Resort leaders hope to keep things that way.
