The PGA Tour moves from Augusta, Georgia, to Hilton Head, South Carolina, for this week’s RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links. Below, we look at the 2021 RBC Heritage odds and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.
Despite the fact this tournament is being played on the heels of the 2021 Masters, the field is quite strong. Dustin Johnson, ranked second in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings, is the headliner and pre-tournament betting favorite at +900 coming off a missed cut at the Masters. Webb Simpson also returns to defend his 2020 title.
Next week will see the Tour move to Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans team event. The PGA Championship, the second major of 2021 and fourth of the 2020-21 PGA Tour season is just over one month away.
2021 RBC Heritage picks – Favorite
Matt Fitzpatrick (+3000)
Fitzpatrick has played 20 career competitive rounds at Harbour Town with an average of 1.06 strokes gained on the field per round. He has still never won on the PGA Tour and is coming off a T-34 finish at the Masters, but he has three top-10 showings in six events in North America to start the year.
The Englishman tied for 14th in this event last year and in 2018. He’s averaging 0.24 Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green and 0.66 SG: Putting per round through 33 measured rounds on the season and the current form fits this course well.
2021 RBC Heritage picks – Contender
Christiaan Bezuidenhout (+5500)
The 26-year-old from South Africa is coming off a T-40 finish in his second career appearance at the Masters. He tied for 28th in this event last year and has since won twice on the European Tour.
He leads qualified golfers with 0.923 SG: Around-the-Green on the 2020-21 PGA Tour season, and he was 10th among those to play all four rounds in SG: Putting per round.
2021 RBC Heritage picks – Long shot
Adam Hadwin (+10000)
Hadwin shouldn’t have odds this high based on his experience at Harbour Town GL. He has played 18 competitive rounds with an average of 0.83 strokes gained on the field. He tied for 41st last summer but has a top finish of T-22 in 2017.
He’s fifth on Tour this season in SG: Around-the-Green and his putting is improving as the season goes on.
