CBS Sports broadcasts the 45th year of the RBC HERITAGE this weekend from one of the most picturesque and popular stops on the PGA TOUR, Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C. Carl Pettersson, last year’s winner of the Tartan Jacket, looks to continue a 19-year streak of no defending champion missing the cut at the RBC Heritage since Davis Love III in 1993. CBS Sports is on-hand with third and final-round coverage on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21 (3:00-6:00 PM, ET, both days).

 

Jim Nantz, now in his 28th year covering golf at CBS, serves as anchor of CBS Sports’ golf coverage. Sir Nick Faldo, winner of six majors and more than 40 tournaments worldwide, serves as lead analyst alongside Nantz in the 18th tower. Ian Baker-Finch mans the 17th; Gary McCord the 16th; and David Feherty and Peter Kostis serve as on-course reporters.
