It was once again Scottie Scheffler’s week, as he cemented himself as the best player in the world with his fourth win of 2022 in just eight starts. He has now added the most coveted major to his list, alongside a WGC from just a few weeks back.
His run to the top has been remarkable and is surely the story of the season.
We don’t have time to celebrate him too much, though, as the TOUR quickly turns to its next event. This week, that event is from Hilton Head Island, SC.
The RBC Heritage will take place at Harbour Town starting on Thursday, and it has a surprisingly strong field, which currently includes six of the Top 8 finishers from the Masters.
In total, half of the Top 10 players in the Official World Golf Rankings will headline the field, which is certainly rare for an event immediately following a major championship.
It is always interesting to dissect an event immediately following one of the biggest tournaments of the year.
Harbour Town is also a completely different challenge than Augusta National, so we will be looking for some players that have a good track record at this tournament, and that show an ability to stay focused immediately following majors.
Here are some of the players I’ll be looking out for when odds drop on Monday morning.
Best Buys for RBC Heritage
The 2019 Champion Golfer of the Year made a run at the Masters this week, posting his career-best finish of T3.
Lowry made a couple of big mistakes that didn’t allow him to remain in contention, including a shocking triple bogey at the Par 3 4th on Sunday. He would bounce back with six birdies over his final 14 holes to post an under-par round and climb to that third-place finish.
The Irishman is playing some fantastic golf in 2022, but has yet to come through with a win. He has four straight top-13 finishes to his record this year, including two in the Top 3.
Lowry has teed it up the week after the Masters at the RBC Heritage a few times in his career, with two of those resulting in top-10 finishes.
This time, he is playing the best golf of any of those years, and will be a name I’m looking for when odds open in the morning.
I’ll be really interested to see where Cantlay opens in odds on Monday morning. He was in a tier below the elites at the Masters and with a handful of them playing Harbour Town too, he could present some value since his T39 finish isn’t going to turn any heads.
Despite the end result, Cantlay seemed to be showing some signs of coming out of the lull he’s been in this year. He has struggled with his ball striking to start 2022, but he gained in that metric at Augusta National, and was really strong on Sunday.
It may be a stretch for me to think he could go under the radar — especially with his three top-7 finishes at this event — but I’ll be keeping an eye out to see if we can get some value on a player that could be turning the corner with his game.
There are a few names that didn’t tee it up at the Masters that I will be interested in playing if the numbers are right, and Kevin Streelman is certainly on that list.
His game is coming together, and the timing is right with this event being one of his favorites each year.
Streelman has two Top 7 finishes in his last four trips to Harbour Town and is coming in off of three straight Top 25s. This is a course where he is not punished for his lack of length off the tee and is rewarded for his ability to hit fairways.
He still has a game that can win on this TOUR, and this course, in particular, is a spot where I could see it happening.
