This week we return to the PGA Tour from Augusta National to Harbor Town for the 2022 RBC Heritage.
Hilton Head has had a very strong field this week, including five players who were favorites last week at the Masters. Although Colin Morikawa, Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantley are not far behind him, Justin Thomas is preferred.
Harbor Town is a second shot subject (you can often hear it on tour), but its small greens create even more precision demand.
Our GolfBet staff took it into account this week and selected some of the best Iron Warriors in the world for its best races. Check out their favorite picks for the RBC tradition below.
The best bet
Matthew Nesmith – Top-20 (+550)
Jason Chopel: The truth is, for the best race of the week, I was looking for the top five (+600) Corey Connors or the top 10 (+450) for Maverick McNeely, but I want to follow Nesmith. The same number that makes more room for error like the Top-20 play.
NeSmith Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee Ranked 77th this season and 33rd in Approach Shots, the key measure of one of the most restricted locations on the PGA Tour. However, that is the only reason for him to play here.
When I spoke to him a few weeks ago about my show “Hitting the Green” on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio, he was from South Carolina and admitted that if he chose to go anywhere, it would be at this event. With some confidence after competing for victory at the Wallspar Championship last month, it should come as no surprise that NeSmith came to a place like himself this week.
Alex Noran – Top 10 (+550)
Chris Murphy: This year I seem to have added a lot to Noran in this spot, and he posts some strong results even though the bet is not yet fruitful. I’ll be back in part this week because it’s so relevant to him.
Noran has had three top-12 finishes in his last five starts, and comes within a week, where he never missed a cut and recorded three to 30 results. Those top-30s are nothing big, but I hope he would have been set for a big week with his amazing latest look. I’m betting on Sweden this week, it could be the place where he finally beats and fights for victory.
Tommy Fleetwood – Top-20 (+230)
London Silinsky: Very quiet, Fleetwood has resurrected late. Since he missed the Honda Classic, he has competed in the T20, T22, T16 and more recently the T14 in Augusta. Strokes Gain: 13th in Dee-to-Green and Strokes Gain: His rolling numbers have also withdrawn as the Englishman is 22nd in the field more than his previous 12 rounds.
He received 4.33 strokes from Dee in the English Masters, which was third behind Shane Lori and Matt Fitzpatrick. With two starts in Harbor Town, Fleetwood holds his record for a T25 and an MC (last year), however the missed cut came straight into the count, and he also scored 65 in the second round.
It’s been two years since we last saw Fleetwood so well, but it looks like he’s returning to his old form and getting +230 at this point for the T20 – one of the three he did in the previous four starts – pretty good value.
Daniel Berger – Top 5, Sungje Im – Top 10 and Tyrell Hutton – Top 20 (+10000)
Rob Bolton: I went 3-for-4 in a similar barley with cascading finishes in the Masters – thanks to nothing, Victor Howland finished the T27 when it was in the top-10 – so I feel it again in Harbor Town.
Berger, Im and Hutton have never been in my kitchen, but all three are on my Power Rank on PGATOUR.com. Berger’s target mountain, obviously, but he has short contrasts to individual footnotes on FanDuel’s top-5 boards at +200. Sure, it’s a reflection of the early race and wants to open the door to the house, but he still deserves it.
Berger came here to T3 in June 2020, and he has a pair of Top-5 in 2022. Those results generally exemplify his form since he began his return to golf with a win in Colonial the week before 2020 RBC Heritage. (He was 4-for-4 in the match.)
You can watch this race on Golf Special 4 on FanDuel. In my favorite category of all boards, my 1a is a similar barley in Golf Specials 3. It brings back +2900 to Justin Thomas (top 5), Patrick Cantley (top 10) and Matt Fitzpatrick (top 20). .
Daniel Berger +3500
Matt Vincenzo: At times, golf can be an incredibly difficult sport to predict. With a variety of possible consequences in each match, reducing the winner is not an easy task. Admittedly, Daniel Berger’s success has been somewhat predictable in the past.
Berger’s four PGA Tour successes came in relatively short courses. The TPC Southwind (two wins), Colonial Country Club and Pebble Beach golf connections all do not require much distance from the tee and reward the sharp iron game. In his last 36 rounds, the Florida State University product ranked first in courses under 7,200 yards. Harbor Town Golf Links fits that description because it is 71st size 7,121 yards.
Surprisingly, Berger excelled at the Hilton Heads in the past, finishing 13th last year and third in 2020. In a course with the second small greens on the tour, the spectacular iron game will be more important than ever. The 29-year-old is a remarkably consistent iron player, and Strokes Kind: Approach has topped his last 50 rounds.
Berger also comes to Harbor Town in solid form. He has finished in the top four of his six-stroke-play starts this season, in the top 20, and twice in the top five.
Berger has shown the potential to succeed in strong fields when it suits him, and Harbor Town seems to be the perfect place to win his fifth PGA Tour.
Daniel Berger +3500
Derek Farnsworth: After seeing +3500 at Caesars in Berger, I rushed to the online betting window.
We can exclude his T50 performance in Masters because Augusta National has his number. For whatever reason, he didn’t play well in his last four starts at the Masters. Before that, he played some of the best golf – T4 among T13 players and T4 in the Honda Classic.
Shortly after tea, Berger is very similar to Webb Simpson and Kevin Kissner, who tends to play his best golf in these short courses. Harper Town Tea and Elite Iron Play love accuracy, two things that Berger excelled at throughout his life. The greens here are hard to beat, so Berger ranks 10th in the industry in Strokes Kind: Around the Green.
He should feel more comfortable this week as he has finished T13 and T3 for the past two years.
Russell Henley +3500
Brian Perryman: As one of the best iron warriors in the world, Henley incorporated himself into quiet conversation.
In the last 50 tracked rounds, he finished second among all PGA Tour players in the Strokes Kind: Justin Thomas only lagging approach. He is the one who can serve from Tea, where he is ranked 21st in the last 50 rounds he has earned in this field. The combination of these skills will be crucial for golfers this week as they seek to attack Harbor Town, which requires precision to compete in both tea and its small greens.
Although he does not have recent successes, all the advanced data point to a breakthrough success for Henley in the future. He finished ninth in the event last year, losing 2.7 strokes. I hope he, who has been showing excellent play in the finals of the Masters, will be able to maintain his momentum this week and win a course that suits his skills.
