The world No. 1 player continued his heater with a very comfortable win in Augusta.
Scottie Scheffler has now played in seven majors since receiving his PGA Tour card, and his worst ending is at 19th, so he may be relying on these key leaderboards in the future.
We now focus on RBC Heritage, one of the most exciting racing events on the RBC Heritage calendar. Harbor Town rejects nowhere distance and all the stars are primary to a recession that follows The Masters, and we can usually find some good value here.
Beat tie-designed Harbor Town is a Bar-71 check-in at 7,100 yards. It has the smallest greens on tour, so the iron game will be more important than usual. But even the best iron players will have trouble at times, so scrambled also plays a bigger role than regular tour stops.
Wind is one of the primary defenses in this coastal South Carolina course, so expect some difficult scoring conditions if things get bleak.
Stewart Cink, Jim Furyk and Boo Weekley have won here many times, while players like Webb Simpson, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker have also won. No one really knew the distance, but they were all elite iron fighters or scramblers at the time of graduation.
For now, we have a strong domain for this event. Let’s see how many of them actually show up after a hard masters week.
Justin Thomas started out as a +1200 favorite in the Top-10 finish at the Masters, finishing eighth on his last appearance here in 2020. This is a lesson fitting for his strength in attitude. The driver dropped him off in Augusta, but it didn’t matter much here, so the rest of the game was set for competition.
Colin Morikawa and Cameron Smith are next in the +1400s, and two newcomers from strong weeks in a big week. That is, it comes down to where they are mentally. With the two set to play in next week’s team event in New Orleans, it should come as no surprise to me that Smith will be defending there.
Dustin Johnson is coming in at +1600. For the past five years he has been a regular at his own state event. He never fought, but he never played badly. He has not finished in the top 10 in the last four years, but has never finished worse than 30th.
Patrick Cantley is here at +1800 and I would not be surprised to see him leave as he is getting ready for the group event. Condley, who never looked good in the Masters, eventually finished 39th. He played very well here, however he finished third in one of his four starts.
Matthew Fitzpatrick, Shane Lori, Daniel Berger, Web Simpson and Corey Connors create those +2000 layers, and everyone should fit in well into this space. Webb won two years ago. Fitzpatrick has repeatedly stated on tour that this is his favorite place. Lori is in shape and has won two to 10 places in the last three years. Berger finished third in 2020, while Connors finished fourth last year.
Books have given us many options for how strong this field is. Many of our favorite types of players have come up with reasonable contradictions.
I begin Kevin Kissner At +5500 in DraftKings. Kissner says there are places he can fight and places he can’t. This is one of those events where he can win. He lost in the playoffs to Furik in 2015 and was back in competition in 2018 before slipping on Sunday. The form is now solid. He reached the match play finals and finished fourth among players in other beat tie courses. His attitude was in good shape after a week in Augusta, where he suffered a stroke for a round.
We will take too Kevin Na +5500 on BetRivers here. Na will be the most popular play during a strong week in Augusta. He looked solid in the match play and was good in attitude last week. His history has been verified here, but in the last 10 years he has had three to 10 players, so when he played well, it was a good place for him.
We will go here too Chi Woo Kim At +6500 in DraftKings. Xi Woo has played well here before. He looked like he would get to the top in 2018, but Putter failed him late, and he lost to Satoshi Kodaira in a playoff. The form has been solid throughout the year, and he has held the top 20.
I go with Adam Hadwin Here at BetRivers +6600. Hotwin Farm Play is high. I think he should fit into this curriculum, but in six years, he has never registered for the top 20 places. He’s playing better this time around with three straight top 10 players, so I’ll get a chance at this number as his form continues.
I also stand by Myth Pereira +9000 here on PointsBet. Has been on good trending for the past few weeks. He has finished in the top 30 in four of his last five starts. The attacking ball was mostly solid and the short game recently showed a vision of improvement. This is his debut here, but it has not slowed down the pace of players in the past. Both Codyra and Wes Bryan have won their first appearances in the last few seasons.
I start here Brian Harman At 100-1 in DraftKings. He is playing well and has created a decent record here for success. He missed the number cut in Augusta on a course that did not suit him. But before that, he was in the top 15 of three in his last seven starts. He finished in the top 10 on two occasions and was 13th a year ago.
I go here with my regular one Davis Relay At 175-1 on PointsBet. Riley was at the Wallspar playoffs recently, and as we saw there he got into a lot of trouble when he sprayed the driver all over and played a large number. This course compels a very conservative approach from Dee, which is in line with his strengths.
I will go with you Takumi Kanaya 250-1 here on FanDuel. Kanaya missed a reduction in numbers in Augusta, but won the Iron that week. He also played well in another beat tie course in Austin to leave his match play team. This syllabus is similar to the players playing in Japan. It is short and tight, with a precise emphasis on force. It matched Godira’s eye, and Kanaya is a huge talent, having already won three at the age of 23.
This is a much deeper card than usual this week due to the convenience we have in this course. It produces the same number of winners each year, and we get many comrades who fit the print and solid prices that are planned for many big names to appear.
