2019 RBC Heritage expert picks, rankings, fantasy golf and betting tips


SHARE THIS STORY

Looking for 2019 RBC Heritage picks, either for betting or fantasy golf games like DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, Golf Channel or the PGA Tour?

We have your 2019 RBC Heritage rankings and expert picks, as we do each week of the PGA Tour season.



What a week last week, huh? That understatement is my segue into this week's slightly less important RBC Heritage, which still features 25 of the world top 50 from last week and is a tremendous tournament. Someone who plays in the Masters the week prior typically wins, and Harbour Town Golf Links is one of the few "tight" golf courses on Tour I actually like.

There's plenty of depth this week, and there's also plenty of wind expected through the weekend. So tread carefully.

For those new to our weekly picks, we offer our top 10 players for free.

2019 RBC Heritage rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Dustin Johnson -- Best player in the field, and he was T-16 here last year. Doesn't need driver pretty much at all, but he can still use his lethal wedge game plenty.

2. Patrick Cantlay -- Cantlay's results haven't been great in calendar 2019, but getting a career-best T-9 at the Masters should carry momentum. Good record here, and he seems to like the tighter-looking courses.

3. Bryson DeChambeau -- Boy, he faded quickly after that opening 66 at Augusta. However, he's had good runs on this golf course and maybe all those calculations can handle the wind.


4. Xander Schauffele -- I'm wondering if Xander is a big game hunter kinda guy like Brooks, nailing down the majors formula but not quite as interested in the second-tier events. Either way, his Masters run has to inspire some hope. (I'm probably picking him or Brooks at the PGA.)

5. Kevin Kisner -- A South Carolina native, it's a home-state home game this week, though he lives closer to Augusta. Aside from the WGC Match Play win, coasting along in that 25th-place range for about 10 starts now.

6. Ian Poulter -- Poulter makes a lot of birdies on this golf course. It suits him. Had the tartan jacket in his hands with about 6 to go last year.

7. Jim Furyk -- Furyk's on that mini-heater of sorts, and he had last week off. He's won so much money here it's hilarious, and he's in form.

8. Matt Kuchar -- Kuchar has played so well this year, this may the kind of week he has a letdown. He did win here in 2014, and he knows how to handle this golf course (as well any Pete Dye-related design).

9. Sungjae Im -- I could've sworn Im was going to win in the D.R., but he didn't come away with the title that G-Mac ultimately captured. Still, he is poised for a win.

10. Francesco Molinari -- It's hard to figure what Frankie will do this week post-Masters, but he can either be resolved to move past it or mope for a while. I read Molinari as a guy who will push forward.

My primary DraftKings lineup

  1. Tommy Fleetwood - $9,200
  2. Kevin Kisner - $9,100
  3. Ian Poulter - $8,600
  4. Sungjae Im - $8,400
  5. Eddie Pepperell - $7,200
  6. Joel Dahmen - $6,900
