Cape Town - South African star golfer Branden Grace has committed to defend his title at the RBC Heritage at the Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Grace won by two strokes last year over Scotland's Russell Knox and England's Luke Donald to secure his first PGA Tour title by finishing with a nine-under-par total of 275.

This year Grace will be joined by England's Tyrrell Hatton and past champions Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell and Brandt Snedeker.

The world No 17-ranked golfer is looking to secure his second plaid jacket a week after the Masters conclusion - which takes place on April 6-9 at August National Golf Club.

"It's so tough to win any tournament these days so I think one of my main goals is to get another win," Grace told Sport24.

"If I manage to get one win a new goal will be set and I'll be going for a second win and so on. I'd rather do it that way than saying I want to win four times."

"I'm a big fan of ticking off goals as I go on and progress through the year, I feel this keeps me sharp and always hungry for more success."

The RBC Heritage tournament is scheduled to tee off on April 13-16.
