2018 RBC Heritage Sleeper Picks

RBC Heritage SleepersThe RBC Heritage is a great tournament played at one of the best courses in the US but because it follows the Masters is does get a bit of a drop in field talent.

DraftKings lineups will be built around some of the top players committed to the RBC Heritage such as Dustin Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Martin Kaymer, Charl Schwartzel, and Charley Hoffman but be warned, the week after the Masters is a bit of a letdown for some of these top players and some like DJ or Kuchar are there because of sponsorship responsibilities and really may not be fully into the tournament.

Now if you are looking at picking a sleeper pick for the RBC Heritage as a bettor then here are the current odds to win the RBC Heritage (posted the week of the tournament) – RBC Heritage Odds

Some key stats to look at when Picking a Sleeper Pick

  • Driving Accuracy – Hitting is far at Harbour Town won’t win, golfers need to be straight off the tee. Whoever wins this week will be in the Top 10 in driving accuracy this week so start with guys that are generally good throughout the PGA Tour season.
  • Greens in Regulation – The second shot will be the important one so landing in on the green will be imperative. Look for guys that are pretty accurate with the short clubs and will have a chance for a birdie putt or a 2 putt par.
  • Overall Putting Average – Not a stats that gets looked at often but Harbour Town’s greens are so small that there are less putts made because you aren’t looking at 3 putts very often.
  • Scrambling – Guys that miss the green on their second shot will have to be about to stick it close to the pin on their third

Some RBC Heritage Sleeper Picks to Consider

Jim Furyk - Furyk in on the downside of his career but he has had success at Harbour Town in the past and should after having a week off not playing at the Masters be refreshed enough to be a solid play at the RBC Heritage. Last year he started the week off with a 68 and then shot a 74 to miss the cut but won the event in 2015 and has had other good finishes historically. His game is suited for this course, the hope is that there is something left in him that Father Time hasn’t taken away.

Kevin Na - Na has played well at Harbour Town in the past and he will also have been off for a bit without a Masters invite and not playing the Houston Open. He is a bit of a longshot pick to win the RBC Heritage because of his course history there but I’m not sure I would lay down a bet on him at these RBC Heritage Odds. As a DraftKings pick this week, he should bring solid value for his salary cap price.

Graeme McDowell - Another golfer on the downslope of his career but McDowell also is a past winner at Harbour Town and has only missed one cut there in the last 6 years. I wouldn't take him as a longshot to win the tournament but he should be a decent sleeper pick to make the cut for your fantasy lineups at a low cost.
