The PGA Tour heads to Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina, this week for the RBC Heritage. The par-71 course plays at 7,101 yards for the tournament and is usually one of the tougher layouts for tour golfers over the course of the season. Cheng-tsung Pan won the event last year with a score of 12 under and the cut in 2019 was even par.
Pundits mostly agree that DFS pricing is fairly soft this week, allowing for many combinations with top players. Let’s look at five players you should probably consider while crafting your rosters for Thursday.
Collin Morikawa ($10,000 on DraftKings, $11,500 on FanDuel)
Morikawa suffered a heartbreaking playoff loss to Daniel Berger at the Charles Schwab Challenge last week, but there’s no reason to think the close call will affect him psychologically going forward as he’s been an extremely steady presence on the tour. On the season, he’s made a perfect 12 of 12 cuts, with four top 10s. Morikawa ranks fourth in strokes gained tee to green in his past nine tournaments, which should be a boon at the RBC Heritage.
Jordan Spieth ($8,700 on DK, $10,800 on FD)
Spieth tied for 10th last week, a finish that probably should have been higher if not for some putting miscues. After a strong start of 10 under on Thursday and Friday, he managed just one under par over the weekend. He’s historically been strong at Harbour Town, with three finishes in the top 12 out of four career starts on the course.
Matt Kuchar ($8,300 on DK, $10,400 on FD)
Kuchar got extra rest last weekend after, surprisingly, missing the cut at the Charles Schwab Challenge. But it’s not as if he imploded on the course. He carded one under par over 36 holes to miss the cut by a stroke. This week, Kuchar heads to a course where he’s experienced great success, with six top-10 finishes, including a win in 2014. He finished one shot behind Pan last year to notch a runner-up finish. At this price, he’ll be hard to fade, but expect him to be highly owned this week at the RBC Heritage.
Tyrrell Hatton ($8,000 on DK, $9,800 on FD)
Hatton returns to the tour this week after sitting out the Charles Schwab Challenge. He was one of the hottest players on the PGA Tour prior to its COVID-related suspension. On the year, he’s posted a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and three top 10 finishes in just four starts dating back to last October. The 28-year-old Englishman leads the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green, putting him in good position to make birdies on a course with smallish greens where approach position is important.
Abraham Ancer ($8,000 on DK, $9,600 on FD)
Ancer hopes to build on his 14th-place finish last week with a better result at the RBC Heritage. The Mexican pro is modestly-priced for a player with a steady 11-of-13 cuts made on the season, including four top-10 finishes. Harbour Tour also fits his short-but-accurate driving game.
