The PGA Tour heads to its usual post-Masters stop this week as Harbour Town Golf Links hosts the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, S.C.
The Pete Dye course is one of the favorite stops on the PGA Tour for some of the players, especially the ones who don’t hit it as far. It is only 7,100 yards and puts a premium on hitting its notoriously small greens.
This means that ball strikers are typically heavily targeted on the betting market.
There is no better ball striker on the planet than Collin Morikawa. Morikawa is widely known as one of the best iron players on tour, and bettors have taken notice. The No. 2 ranked golfer in the world is the biggest liability this week at BetMGM. Morikawa is getting the most tickets of any golfer this week at 7.9% and the most handle at 11.1%.
Morikawa’s odds have moved from +1400 to +1200 at BetMGM.
Daniel Berger is another player in this tournament who is known for his iron play, and he’s currently the second-biggest liability at BetMGM.
Cam Smith is arguably the second-hottest player on the PGA Tour with two wins already and a T3 at Augusta this past week. He’s known for his work around the greens, and everyone is bound to miss a lot of greens this week.
The Aussie is the third-biggest liability at BetMGM this week. He’s second in ticket percentage at 6.6% and third in total handle at 6.5%.
Shane Lowry is also riding a hot streak coming into the RBC Heritage, and he’s getting plenty of action with 5.1% of the tickets.
This course is expected to be a great fit for short-hitter Matthew Fitzpatrick. He is sixth on tour in Scoring Average but ranks 139th in Driving Distance. He’s getting the second-most handle this week at BetMGM at 6.8%.
It’s always a fun watch to see how players navigate this golf course, and it should be even better with four of the top 10 players in the world in action.
