The RBC Heritage is set for April 15-18 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:
Webb Simpson ($10,700)
While fellow headliners Dustin Johnson and Will Zalatoris nurse Masters hangovers of a contrasting nature, we'll go with the defending champion, the No. 9 player in the World Ranking who's coming off a solid T12 at Augusta that included a 4-under weekend. Last year, Simpson shredded the classic Harbour Town Golf Links with a frightening display of precision, shooting a final-round 64 to finish with a tournament-record 22-under total. He'll look to become the event's first back-to-back winner since Boo Weekley (2007-08).
Corey Conners ($9,300)
His run at a green jacket came up short thanks to a final-round 74, but it's impossible not to be impressed by the 29-year-old Canadian. His T8 at Augusta was just the latest in a string of excellent finishes that includes a T14 at the Valero, a solo 7th at THE PLAYERS and a solo 3rd at the Arnold Palmer. His accuracy off the tee (7th in Driving Accuracy) and precision with his irons (12th in SG: Tee to Green) make him a Harbour Town prototype.
Brian Harman ($8,700)
The lefty has been playing some of the best golf of his career of late, with a T12 at The Masters, a T5 at the Match Play and a T3 at THE PLAYERS. His lack of length is of little concern this week, as Harbour Town emphasizes accuracy over brawn. He has some positive history here, with a T9 in 2017. He's made 20 of his last 21 cuts, so he's a virtual lock to be in Hilton Head over the weekend.
Billy Horschel ($8,200)
Billy Ho's had better weekends than the one he just had. He made the cut at Augusta but slid down an embankment onto his butt for all to see on Saturday, then indulged in some equipment abuse on Sunday, a surly craftsman who blamed his tools. Embarrassed and chastened by his display, he'll look to get a highly successful season back on track at Harbour Town. He's a proud and fiery competitor and will want to make quick amends for his tantrum.
Jim Furyk ($6,600)
The soon-to-be-51-year-old Furyk is far more selective these days about his Tour stops as he transitions into Champions Tour play (where he's already a two-time winner), but he's reserved one of his outings for a place where he's a two-time champion (2010, 2015) and the tournament where he earned his most recent PGA Tour win. Harbour Town is his kind of track: tight, relatively short and veteran-friendly, a place where local knowledge comes in handy. The place where a half-centenarian can contend.
Brian Gay ($6,200)
Another wily veteran and former champion of this event (2009), Gay seemed long past any semblance of a prime when he won the 2020 Bermuda Championship out of nowhere and earned his way into The Masters. Sure, that win was an anomaly, and he has little else to show for this or any of the last few seasons, during which he's been plagued by back trouble. But you could do worse than a cheap former champion with a win this season.
