Last week we almost had it right with HV3 gaining some camera time due to his exceptional play on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, he did not have a strong enough weekend to get the W.
This week we find the PGA Tour at Harbour Town GL for the RBC Heritage. The course measures at just over 7 thousand yards and again is not a long course by any means. With it being open to the elements, I suspect that those who can control their golf ball in the wind will have a chance this week.
Previous winners of the event are G-Mac, Furyk, Branden Grace, and CT Pan. This suggests that we going to have to look at another clinical player who controls the ball tee to green and does some damage with the flat stick.
The golfers to keep an eye on
- Our first pick would have to be Kevin Kisner. He is a consistent golfer who always has his name mentioned on the weekend. He can putt the eyes out of it and has control over his game tee to green. Kevin has narrowly out ranked Graeme McDowell (G-Mac), Viktor Hovland and Joaquin Niemann in our opinion to lift the trophy come Sunday evening.
- Justin Rose has recently found some form, producing a solid 14 under par to finish tied 3rd at Colonial last week. He may have been a bit erratic with his long game, however the putting has surely been a part of his game to desire. A few days out on the range ironing out any kinks and glitches will steer Justin into that invincible territory. Justin will be our elite pick over Rory Mcilroy, Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm.
- Our British pick for the week would be none other than Tyrrell Hatton. Coming off a recent PGA Tour victory, Tyrrell has gained the confidence to become a serious contender out there. He knows how to scrap out a win, and so many of us have mistaken his “poor” attitude for the desire and drive to win.
- It’s hard to mention the RBC heritage without also talking about Luke Donald. This competition is by far the former number 1 in the worlds favourite of the year, his previous RBC Heritage results highlight that fact. Often finding the top 10 in his past performances at the RBC with the exception of last year (back injury). This course suits his wedge play and his short game and he often proves to be a threat on Sunday. He is worth watching for sure.
