This must be the news equivalent of sand trap.

Well, that's just swell. Weeks after Beaufort County governments pledged $2 million in taxpayer money to keep Hilton Head's Heritage of Golf tournament alive word has now come that the tournament will be played on the same weekend as the Legends of Golf tournament in Savannah, and it will end on Easter Sunday April 24.

WTOC 11 has the news and a video below.

Update August 27: The Island Packet has some expanded reporting about the what and why of the situation; read it here.

The paper also has a blog post regarding the likelihood of the Heritage sliding back to its old spot next year if they can get a title sponsor.
