Golf fans are still talking about Bubba Watson's thrilling victory at the Masters last week, but the exciting action of the PGA Tour won't stop when the RBC Heritage tees off at Harbour Town on Thursday.

Harbour Town is a magnificent golf course that is beautifully designed and fun to play. Many of the game's better players will be in South Carolina this week for the tournament, including Luke Donald, who will need a strong performance at the RBC Heritage to maintain his No. 1 spot in the world golf rankings.

Check back here throughout the tournament for leaderboard updates, video highlights and more.

Leaderboard Updates

 

Update: Sunday, April 15 at 6:25 p.m. ET

Carl Pettersson ran away with the RBC Heritage championship and the just over $1 million dollar prize money that went with it. 

Pettersson shot a two-under 69 to finish at -14 for the tournament. That was good enough for a convincing five-stroke lead over Zach Johnson. This was Petterson's fifth career PGA victory.

Carl Petterson is running away with this event. He is three-under through 12 holes. That is good enough to push his event total to -15, and give him a five-stroke lead over Zach Johnson. 

The field is closely bunched behind Johnson, but that will only serve to make the battle for second interesting. Barring a complete disaster by Pettersson, this one is over.

Update: Sunday, April 15 at 3:15 p.m. ET

Colt Knost is buckling under the Sunday pressure. The second-round leader entered today's play in the final group and just one shot off of Carl Pettersson's lead.

He is three-over through four holes. He started off bogey, birdie, triple bogey. He is now at eight-under for the tournament and six shots back of Petterson—who has extended his lead to three shots.

Petterson is two-under through four holes.

The leaders are just under an hour from taking the course. Petterson and Knost will be the final pairing to hit the course and will do so at 1:55 p.m.. 

In the meantime, the course seem ripe for scoring. There are plenty of red numbers flying up on score cards. Matt Every, who began the day at even-par is four-under through ten.

Pettersson rolled through the rest of his round and finished five-under. He has the lead heading into Sunday, but it's far from over.

Colt Knost continues to be just one-stroke behind while Zach Johnson is playing his best golf of the tournament and veterans Boo Weekley and Brandt Snedeker are still in the race.

This may not be the Masters, and Bubba Watson may not be here to hit ridiculous shots, but we are heading for a classic finish tomorrow at Harbour Town.

Pettersson has slowed down, but he's still five-under on the day and 12-under overall. The best round of the day so far is five-under, so he has a chance to easily top that. Colt Knost, however, is nipping at his heels.

Zach Johnson, meanwhile, played a great round of golf. He shot an impressive five-under and that includes an eagle on No. 5. He has moved up to third place. After his 71 on Thursday, he seems to be putting things together and should be seen as a favorite moving forward.

Well, so much for that momentum Jacobsen was putting together. He bogied No. 3 and double-bogied No. 4 to drop all the way back to 10th.

Carl Pettersson, on the other hand, has come out scorching as he has birdied three of the first holes to put him into first place overall.

Fredrik Jacobsen seems to be using the momentum from a great Masters tournament here at Harbour Town.

He is already two-under through two holes on Saturday and appears ready to make a run at leader Colt Knost, who is just teeing off with Carl Pettersson.

Last-Minute Prediction

Luke Donald will win the event and put his poor performance at Augusta behind him. The key for the world's No. 1 ranked golfer is to start the tournament with a solid Round 1 performance. At the Masters, Donald shot over par in each of the first two rounds.

Not only will he putt better at Harbour Town, he will drive the ball more accurately and hit the greens more consistently. Expect Donald to earn a big win in South Carolina this week.
