This year’s edition of the RBC Heritage will have a Masters feel to it as nearly half the field that competed at Augusta National makes the short trek to Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C. It’s also another sign that things are returning to normal with the event slotted in its traditional post-Masters slot after being the second tournament played following the COVID shutdown last summer. Dustin Johnson aims to make up for a disappointing showing last week when he missed the cut in his Masters title defense. A strong field of players makes for intriguing matchups.

Need to Know
By no means is Harbour Town long, stretching out to about 7,100 yards, but it is tricky and the tree-lined fairways can play havoc on missed tee shots, even ones that land on the fairway. Accuracy will be tested on approach with the greens some of the smallest on Tour. Also, with its location along the coast we could also have wind come into play, making things even more difficult. Last year may have been an anomaly with the course yielding the second-most birdies of any Tour event. This allowed Webb Simpson to set a scoring record with a 22-under 262 to win by a single shot.
RBC Heritage Matchup Picks
Webb Simpson -135 vs. Patrick Cantlay
When sifting through the matchups I purposely picked Simpson since his play at Harbour Town has been phenomenal over the last few years. He set the scoring record here last year en route to victory and he has five additional top-10s while making the cut in each of his last 10 appearances. Recent form is also strong with a T12 at The Masters and a T6 at the WGC-Workday.
Daniel Berger -115 vs. Collin Morikawa
Berger’s return to play included a T3 at Harbour Town last year, one week after his win at the Charles Schwab Challenge. And he hasn’t slowed down since playing consistently strong golf over the past 10 months. We’ll forgive the MC at The Masters since a number of big timers were taken down. This season alone he has five top-10s, including a win at Pebble Beach.
Brian Harman -135 vs. Harris English
Harman kind of snuck up on folks, but he has everyone’s attention now after strong showings in recent high-profile events. A T3 at THE PLAYERS got him into the WGC-Match Play where he captured fifth-place. He also had a solid effort at The Masters with opening rounds of 69 putting him near the top of the leaderboard. He tailed off over the weekend but still finished with a share of 12th. He has a pair of top-10s at Harbour Town placing among the top-30 in four of his last seven starts at the venue.
Abraham Ancer -110 vs. Corey Conners
If not for Simpson’s record-setting performance last year Ancer would be defending the title at Harbour Town. He finished just one-shot back and has been on a roll ever since with five top-25s and a T26 at Augusta last week. He has the metrics to do well on this layout and everything was working last year. He was the most accurate among the field and led everyone in GIR. Anything close to those numbers this week will have him winning this matchup and contending for the title.
Matt Kuchar -115 vs. Sergio Garcia
Few if any have played Harbour Town better than Kuchar over the years, which is why I’m backing him in this matchup. Following his victory in the 2014 edition, Kuchar has a runner-up and fifth among his four top-11 showings. He’s also 16 for 16 since the 2004 playing. He missed the cut at The Masters, but so did a number of other big name players, so I’m not holding that against him.
