RBC Heritage Fantasy Golf Picks
Harbour Town requires great iron play and a really tactical approach in order to be successful on this short and at times tricky course. There might be no more tactical player on tour than Bryson DeChambeau. Nicknamed "The Scientist" because of this style of play, DeChambeau comes in with the second-best odds to win at +1400, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Already with five top-10 finishes this season, DeChambeau was clearly playing some great golf before the season's suspension. While his No. 1 ranked driving distance wont give him many advantages here, taking the driver out of his hands will help save him from his No. 122 ranked driving accuracy. If anyone can figure out the most precise way to navigate this course from an analytical standpoint, it should be DeChambeau.
Similar to DeChambeau, Webb Simpson has had a great season so far, garnering four top-10 finishes, including one win at the Waste Management Open. Simpson's abilities bode well here, ranking No. 32 on tour in driving accuracy and No. 2 on tour in both scoring average and birdie average. His No. 11 rank in greens in regulation (GIR) is also a major key stat, as is his No. 28 rank in sand save percentage on a course that could present multiple scramble opportunities for players this week. Basically all of the stats you tend to look at for this course, Simpson ranks near the top on tour.
Matt Kuchar might not have the same stats to back up him being here that Simpson does, but his success on this course in the past should be taken into consideration and presents a solid value play. He's one of only seven players on tour that have gained more than 1.5 strokes per round here. He's No. 38 on tour in sand save percentage and No. 13 in driving accuracy. A player who usually takes a calm and collected approach to the game, if his ball striking is right, his lack of distance will be irrelevant here.
