See below as we run through the tournament for you including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson and 32Red’s Jack Milner.
- Harbour Town Golf Links, South Carolina
- First staged in 1969
- Current champion is Satoshi Kodaira
OVERVIEW: So a week after The Masters, but no sign of a hangover – with the PGA moved to May, the build up is already beginning for the next Major which boosts all the competitions in between – including the RBC Heritage.
The Heritage is one of five tournaments given “invitational” status by the PGA Tour, which does mean a slight reduced field, but there is no doubting the quality on show in South Carolina.
Dustin Johnson and Francesco Molinari – both who put up great efforts to land the Green Jacket last week – are the favourites to claim the win, whilst defending champion Satoshi Kodaira is as long as 200/1 to defend his title.
TOP TEN BETTING:
The Bookies point of view…
32Red’s Sponsorship manager Jack Milner delivers a weekly verdict on each tournament.
The calm after The Masters storms sees The PGA Tour head to The Carolinas where Kevin Kisner bids to become the second home-state winner in three years after Wesley Bryan’s emotional success in 2017.
Kisner, put up in the column when successful in The Matchplay three weeks ago at 70/1, remains solid as ever and should be there or thereabouts at the 28/1 mark. Charley Hoffman is over-priced at 66/1, whilst the pair of Bryson Dechambeau and Xander Schaufele appear the most likely winners but are priced accordingly at 16/1.
The pro’s point of view…
Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.
A really good tournament here and Harbour Town is a brilliant venue.
It is a strong field, but I am going Australian here and I think Marc Leishman and Cameron Smith could both have excellent weekends.
