Check out the RBC Heritage odds to win along with finishing position odds, tournament matchups and golf props on FanDuel Sportsbook.
1. Matt Fitzpatrick (+3000)
Fitzpatrick never contended at The Masters, but he did finish T-10. The 28-year-old Englishman finished T-4 in the 2021 RBC Heritage and has two other top-15 finishes. He was struggling a bit prior to The Masters while dealing with a neck issue, but his approach stats at Augusta were solid and he's a top-tier scrambler. If Fitzpatrick carries that play to Harbour Town, the rest of his stats profile should align for another good week.
2. Shane Lowry (+3100)
Lowry finished T-3 here last year, and he'll be a popular pick this week having also finished T-3 in 2019 and T-9 in 2021. Each of those finishes followed appearances in the Masters Tournament, so there has been no letdown from the 36-year-old Irishman who finished T-16 last week at The Masters. Lowry ranks top-5 in Strokes Gained (SG) Total over his 18 rounds at Harbour Town. Even with the strongest-ever field this week at the RBC Heritage, Lowry can sustain and fire another strong finish with top-10 odds returning better than a 3/1 payoff.
3. Tommy Fleetwood (+5000)
Fleetwood finished 33rd last week at The Masters, and we'll give him another shot as a dark horse this week. The 32-year-old Englishman has incredibly never won on the PGA Tour despite numerous top-10 finishes in majors and possessing solid skills. Especially in Short Game and Around the Green, where he's gained strokes in all tournaments this year (ARG). Same with his solid Tee-to-Green game, and his putting has been good enough as well. Fleetwood's game lines up well for Harbour Town, and he finished T10 here last year and was able to go low with a round of 64, and also 65 in his 2021 appearance.
