The PGA Tour stop at Harbour Town boasts another stacked field
The RBC Heritage is set for June 18-21 at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. That means it's time to pick your optimal DraftKings fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help.
Here's what our best RBC Heritage lineup looks like in this week's golfer predictions:
Collin Morikawa ($10,000)
The 23-year-old Morikawa is closing in on a record currently held by Tiger Woods. What other recommendation do you need? Morikawa has made 21 consecutive cuts to start his PGA Tour career, only four short of Tiger's 25. It's also the longest active cuts-made streak on Tour. Morikawa outlasted most of a star-studded leaderboard at the Charles Schwab this past weekend, losing in a playoff to Daniel Berger and in the process outplaying such studs as Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele. One year ago, Morikawa was 1,039th in the world; now he's 27th. The meteoric rise continues.
Dustin Johnson ($8,500)
It's frankly bizarre to see the world's fifth-ranked player available at such a laughably low cost. Yes, he missed the cut at the Charles Schwab, but DJ has never been known for his practice habits, and the lengthy layoff almost certainly affected him more than most. Now that he's shaken off the rust, he can turn his attention to a course that owes him one. Johnson was the 54-hole leader here last year before climbing aboard the bogey train and missing all his stops on the way to a final-round 77. His victory drought has reached 16 months, and he's too good not to snap that one of these weeks.
Gary Woodland ($8,400)
The reigning U.S. Open champ was nearly flawless in his return to action at the Charles Schwab before a late flurry of bogeys left him at T9. Still, the week continued a pre-lockdown trend of solid finishes for Woodland — counting the unofficial Hero World Challenge in December, it was his seventh top-12 finish in his last 10 tournaments.
Matt Kuchar ($8,300)
Kooch was the runner-up at Harbour Town last year and is a past winner here, so saddle up the course horse and take him for a gallop this week. He's been a little feast-or-famine over the past couple of years, but the feasts have been sumptuous — three worldwide wins and 19 other top 25s since November 2018.
Brandt Snedeker ($7,500)
We're giving Sneds a mulligan this week after his late withdrawal (not health-related) from the Charles Schwab cost us. Accurate, precise and unflappable, Sneds is well suited for Harbour Town, where distance is not a prerequisite. His recent results aren't all that recent given the shutdown, but he has seven top-25 finishes in his last 11 Tour stops.
Jim Furyk ($7,100)
As cheap flyers go, you could do a lot worse this week than two-time Heritage champion Furyk, who has four career top-2 finishes at Harbour Town. He shot three rounds in the 60s at the Charles Schwab before fading to a final-round 74, so he brings some positives to Hilton Head this week.
