News for Immediate Release:
Fourteen Tidelands Health team members will be honored for their selfless commitment, sacrifice and courage amid the COVID-19 pandemic at the 52nd RBC Heritage golf tournament, which begins Thursday in Hilton Head.
As part of an effort by the PGA Tour to recognize the tireless efforts of health care workers during the pandemic, the names of South Carolina health care workers will be inscribed on the back of RBC Heritage caddie bibs alongside player names. Some of the tournament’s biggest names, including Webb Simpson, Brooks Koepka and Davis Love III, will represent Tidelands Health team members.
“We applaud the PGA Tour for spotlighting health care workers for their commitment and sacrifice during the pandemic,” said Bruce Bailey, president and CEO of Tidelands Health. “Our Tidelands Health team members have been on the front lines of the battle with COVID-19, and it’s great to see their efforts recognized in such a visible way.”

The Heritage Classic Foundation, the nonprofit organization that hosts the golf tournament, has also launched a “Plaid Pledge” initiative to raise money to support physicians, nurses and health care providers.
PGA Tour professionals, South Carolina leaders and RBC Heritage supporters have joined the pledge and will be highlighting the stories of select health care workers on social media to encourage people to make a donation. Proceeds will be split between the South Carolina Hospital Association Foundation and the Heritage Classic Foundation for distribution to charity partners.

The RBC Heritage tournament will be broadcast on the Golf Channel Thursday and Friday, with CBS picking up primary coverage of the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday.
