2017 RBC Heritage - April 13 - 16
After the excitement of Sergio Garcia's well-deserved triumph at the Masters, golf fans will nursing a hangover this week at the RBC Heritage.
Equalling last week's thrilling duel between Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose will be tough and most of the PGA tour's stars are having a week off.
Harbour Town Golf Links lies on the coastal shores of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The Pete Dye design measures only 7,099 yards, this Par 71 so it's no bomber's paradise. The fairways are narrow and greens are small s you'll see more 3-woods and long irons off the tee this week than at any other PGA tour event this year.
Considering the course layout, bet on a player who is not a long off the tee but is very straight. Most of the past winners of this event haven't been long hitters so put your money on a great iron player who hits lots of greens in regulation. The strong coastal winds will be a factor too so a player who has played a lot on the European Tour - Luke Donald, Mathew Fitzpatrick and defending champion Braden Grace - will do well at Hilton Head.
