Heritage seeking title sponsor for 2012 return

Without a title sponsor, the Heritage is on the clock.
Sunday's final round - Brandt Snedeker happily slipped on his plaid champions coat and held the Heritage trophy high as fans around the 18th green applauded one of Harbour Towns Golf Links' most thrilling finishes - could have been the tournament's last hoorah.
The PGA Tour fixture since 1969 is without a title sponsor and desperately seeking the $8 million or so it would take to underwrite the tournament. Tour and event officials have called it imperative to find a backer for the world's best golfers to return in 2012.
"I think just how special this is," Snedeker said. "Everybody in the field wants to come back here next year, not just me."
Tournament director Steve Wilmot knows his organization needs to make something happen - soon.
