3 Dark-Horse Golf Picks to Win The 2022 RBC Heritage at FanDuel Sportsbook
Following a great week at The Masters and Scottie Scheffler's first Major title, the PGA pros head to Harbour Town for the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, SC.
RBC Heritage Golf Picks
Five of the top 10 players in the world are competing at Harbour Town.
- Collin Morikawa (+1300)
- Justin Thomas (+1300)
- Cameron Smith (+1500)
- Patrick Cantlay (+1700)
- Dustin Johnson (+1700)
At The Masters, Smith finished T3, Morikawa 5th, Thomas T8, Dustin Johnson T12, and Cantlay T39.
But beyond the favorites, FanDuel Sportsbook has some sleepers and dark horses with more favorable odds to win and capable of making a run to the weekend leaderboard.
With that in mind, here are three dark horses to bet on to win or top finishing position at the RBC Heritage.
RBC Hertitage Dark Horse Picks
1. Billy Horschel (+4200)
Billy Horschel is playing good golf and he's twice finished top 10 at Harbour Town including T-5 in 2018 and T-25 last year. He missed so many birdie putts last week at The Masters, but don't sleep on Billy. His ball striking and Off-the-Tee stats are top 10 in this field over his 32 rounds at Harbour Town. Poa may not be his preferred putting surface, but Horschel gained strokes on the green in last year's RBC event and his strokes gained stats in Feb. and March were solid across the board when he finished T-6 in Phoenix and T-2 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
2. Brian Harman (+5500)
Harbour Town is a traditional tree-lined courses that put a premium on accuracy. Solid ball striking and shaping are a prerequisite along with approach play into the very small greens, which average less than 4,000 square feet. Harman is a good fit, and he's finished top 10 twice and T-13 last year. The short-hitting 35-year-old lefty is one of the most accurate from the tee, and his approach play has been better in recent months and he did finish T-5 at the Valspar in March and T-3 at The American Express in January. Harman gained strokes nearly across the board in this event last year.
3. Emiliano Grillo (+10000)
Grillo tied for 2nd here last year, yet he's let go at triple-digit odds to win. He also T-16 in 2018. His stats over 14 career rounds at Harbor Town rate out among the best in this field. Strokes Gained: Ball Striking (1st), Tee-to-Green and Approach (2nd). If only he could putt, but he did finished T-21 at The Genesis with a solid putting week. He's missed three cuts since, but is a better fit at Harbour Town as the 29-year-old Argentinian is also among the most accurate from the tee in this field.
