Golf’s biggest day, and one of the biggest comebacks in major championship history, is in the books. But just because the Masters is a few days behind us, there is still plenty of great RBC Heritage golf coming up this weekend.
The Harbour Town Golf Links is one of the best courses on the RBC Heritage PGA Tour, and the field that takes part just one week after the season’s first major is always stocked with great golfers. For Jon Rahm, this RBC Heritage is the first tournament in which he will be introduced as Masters champion. He is not, however, the favorite to win in Hilton Head.
Favorites to Win RBC Heritage Betting Preview
Scottie Scheffler (+850)
Jon Rahm (+900)
Patrick Cantlay (+1100)
Collin Morikawa (+1800)
Jordan Spieth (+2000)
Cameron Young (+2000)
Xander Schauffele (+2500)
Viktor Hovland (+2500)
Tony Finau (+2500)
Sungjae Im (+2500)
Justin Thomas (+2500)
The Masters’ favorites were led by the trio of Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, and Rory McIlroy. Rory isn’t teeing it up this weekend, but the other two are, and not surprisingly, they have the shortest odds heading into the tournament.
It was an emotional win for Rahm at Augusta, and the thought is that it will be easier for Scheffler to get focused for this weekend. He won the Phoenix Open and THE PLAYERS Championship, and he was just T10 at the Masters.
Jordan Spieth was the winner here last year, and if you are wondering if Masters success leads to Heritage success, the answer is not necessarily. Spieth failed to make the cut at last year’s Masters, but he lifted the trophy at Harbour Town. It’s also worth remembering this year that some at the Masters played as many as 30 holes on Sunday. Perhaps players out of contention in Augusta will be better rested this week.
Cameron Young just finished T7 at the Masters, and he is now working with the same caddy that worked with Webb Simpson when he won here in 2020. Does that give Young an edge? He hasn’t won yet this season, but he did just finish second at the WGC-Match Play.
Best Value Bets
Matt Fitzpatrick is just out of the top 10 at +2800, but he should be higher on your list of pre-tournament favorites. He was T4 here in 2021, and he just finished T10 at the Masters.
Matt Kuchar is also deserving of your attention. He is well rested, having not played at Augusta. He’s also playing great golf, with a T9 at the WGC-Match Play and T3 at the Valero Texas Open. Add in his four top-five finishes at Harbour Town and last year’s third-place finish, and he is a great buy at +4500.
