Officials increasing efforts to find sponsor for Heritage

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) - South Carolina and Hilton Head Island officials are increasing their efforts to find a title sponsor for the Heritage Golf Tournament.

Hilton Head Island Mayor Drew Laughlin and Town Manager Steve Riley met Tuesday in Columbia with Governor Nikki Haley, local lawmakers and tourism officials. Officials of the PGA Tour also participated by telephone.

Riley says the meeting allowed everyone to know who the players are but there was no specific solution on finding a sponsor.

Verizon ended its sponsorship with the tournament in 2009.
