DraftKings PGA Lineup: RBC Heritage 2017 Optimal Picks

So, the Masters is over and Sergio Garcia is a major champion after an exhilarating head-to-head battle with Justin Rose on Sunday. Anything after that instant classic is going to feel a little insignificant, but it's still nevertheless on to the next one. On to Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina, for the 2017 RBC Heritage.

The field is unsurprisingly devoid of top-level stars, as Tyrrell Hatton (16th), Matt Kuchar (17th) and Danny Willett (19th) are the only players ranked inside the world Top 20. Still, it gets a lot better after that, and there are a lot of interesting players teeing it up this week.

The course is a Pete Dye design, meaning players who are accurate off the tee and can strategically set up good angles on their second shots will have a better chance of being successful than bombers. The greens are the smallest on Tour, while the GIR percentage at this course was the second lowest last season. Solid ball striking and a precise short game will be worth targeting this week.

Another variable to consider is last week's performance (or lack thereof). While you always want good form, the Masters can be emotionally and physically exhausting. Players who just excelled at Augusta don't always thrive at Hilton Head, and vice versa. Take last year, for example. Paul Casey went from Top-5 at the Masters to missed cut at the RBC Heritage, while Branden Grace went from missed cut at the Masters to win at the RBC Heritage.

All-in-all, it should be a really interesting week, and you can click through the gallery for my ideal DraftKings lineup and picks. (Getty)
