Steve Wilmot, long-time tournament director, honored at 50th RBC Heritage

April 24, 2018


This year, the RBC Heritage celebrated its 50th anniversary in South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

It wasn’t, however, the only major milestone to be recognized.

Steve Wilmot, long-time tournament director, was honored for his more than 25 years of service and dedication to the Heritage. And he had no idea it was coming.

“I was truly surprised and honored at the same time to be recognized by the players and their families,” Wilmot said. “There is no ‘I’ in team and I am just so lucky to be a part a such a wonderful team.”

As part of the Monday opening ceremonies, Wilmot was presented with a commemorative piece of Waterford and donations in his name were made to both The First Tee of The Lowcountry and the AJGA. These efforts were led by Kimberly and Brian Gay – winner of the 2009 Heritage – and supported by numerous other past champions and their families as well as the PGA TOUR.

“Our profound history, longevity, charity relations and economic impact all play a huge role in the RBC Heritage’s success,” Wilmot said. “We are proud to be a part of the PGA TOUR and their legacy of giving back.

“We continue to work hard to ‘do better, so that we can get better to be better.’ I sincerely believe the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing wouldn’t have come so far or stand where we stand today without the constant support of our community.”
