First Reporting: The Heritage will not be played during its traditional, week after the masters spot, but that doesn't seem to have affected the desire of tour pros to come to the lowcountry.

Reigning U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell will join fellow major-winners Jim Furyk, John Daly, Lucas Glover and Shaun Micheel, along with other notable 2011 winners Ian Poulter, Jhonattan Vegas, and Rory Sabbatini.

General business is too boasting solid numbers according to tournament director Steve Wilmont, who continues to hope that this year's tournament will provide the ultimate showcase for potential sponsors.
