PGA Tour – RBC Heritage field breakdown

Davis Love III North Carolina 01

There are 19 colleges and universities represented by 2 or more former golf team members in the field at the 2014 RBC Heritage. All told the field for this week’s tournament at Harbour Town Golf Links features 99 former college athletes.

Those 99 formers represent 28 different schools from 23 conferences. Fans of any of them can follow the PGA Tour based on collegiate alliances here at the Rivals Cup.

No surprise that Georgia and Georgia Tech are tied w/ 7 entries each. They are currently ranked 1-2 in the Top 25 Rivals Cup rankings. 7th ranked Florida is in prime position to move up with 6 formers in the field this week, and a track record of success around Harbour Town.

There will likely be some movement inside the top 5 this week as 3rd ranked UNLV sends only Charley Hoffman to Hilton Head and 5th ranked Baylor is unrepresented this week
