The PGA had a great first week at the Charles Schwab Challenge and we are going to see another great field at the RBC Heritage this week.
The RBC Heritage will be held at the Harbour Town Golf Links which similar to last week’s course (Colonial CC), is going to be a shorter than normal course in which solid ball striking and solid games around the greens will be critical for success.
Harbour Town Golf Links is a Pete Dye course, so we took a lot of time looking at players who have solid iron games and have had success on Pete Dye courses in the past.
Let’s take a look at our DraftKings lineup!
Kicking off our lineup, we are going to pay up for Justin Rose. Rose looked sharp last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge as he went sub-70 in all four rounds, which included an opening round of 63, and finished T-3 (-14). Rose surprisingly split from his long time swing coach in Sean Foley today, but I’m not concerned about that affecting his performance here as Rose as been one of the best on Pete Dye courses since 2014, ranking 6th in the PGA with 2.649 SG: Total.
Webb Simpson disappointed me and many other DFS players last week, but that is no reason not to go right back to him at Harbour Town Golf Links. Simpson currently ranks 10th in SG: Approach the Green, 38th in SG: Around the Green, & 26th in SG: Putting and as he ranks 8th on Pete Dye course since 2014, he is one again a must-play in my opinion.
Similar to Simpson, Matt Kuchar upset many DFS players after missing the cut on the number with a double-bogey on his last hole, however, it’s hard to shy away with Kuchar on a Pete Dye course at just $8,300.
Tyrrell Hatton was playing some of the best golf of his career prior to the break, which including take home the championship at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. There is a bit concern of some rust for Hatton, however, as he currently ranks 1st in SG: Approach the Green 7 1st in SG: Tee-to-Green, I’m happy to roster Hatton at $8,000.
Matthew Fitzpatrick was decent last week posting sub-70 scores in all four rounds and as his style of play that fits this course perfectly. I think Fitzpatrick will make a run this week and I’m putting in a side bet that he finishes in the top-5.
Rounding out our team, we are going to take a bit of chance on Jason Day. Day has not looked great in awhile and has missed his last three cuts, however, this is still a tremendous golfer. Day has been incredible at Pete Dye courses, ranking 2nd in SG: Total (3.048), and I think Day is just too much of a bargain at $7,600 to pass on for this course.
