HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Nick Faldo and U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson will play in next month's RBC Heritage.

Tournament organizers announced the pair's commitments Wednesday. For Faldo, a golf analyst for CBS Sports, it's his first PGA Tour event in the United States since 2006. Watson plays a handful of PGA Tour events each season, but has not teed off at Harbour Town Golf Links since 2001.

Faldo's first of nine career PGA Tour wins came at the 1984 RBC Heritage.

Watson has won twice at Harbour Town, in 1979 and again in 1982.

Both Faldo and Watson are members of the Wolf Golf Hall of Fame.

RBC Heritage tournament director Steve Wilmot says he was excited when the two signed up to play.

The event runs from April 17-20.
