RBC Heritage Preview

Thanks to the PGA Tour being shut down for three months, the RBC Heritage will host some major and unfamiliar star-power, with the top five golfers in the world all in the field. The event usually occupies the week after the Masters, which leads to many of the top golfers skipping out on the weekend at Hilton Head. For example, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy will be playing the course for the first time since 2009.

“It feels great to look down the range and see … most of the top players in the world here,” McIlroy told The Associated Press. “We all want to play against the best fields week in, week out. I guess its silver lining to all this is that it seems like all the top guys are going to play a little more often going forward, and that’s a good thing for the tour and for us and for the people at home that are watching.”

If the tournament plays out anything like last weekend, fans will be in for a treat. With no live audience in attendance at Colonial, Daniel Berger won a playoff against Collin Morikawa.

“It was a little different for sure, but in the end, I was holding the trophy,” Berger said after the victory. “And that’s all that matters to me.”

The PGA Tour has scored a victory on the safety front in its return, with no positive results for COVID-19 arising from the 954 tests they have issued over the last two weeks.

“It doesn’t surprise me, because I feel like the plan that has been put in place here has been very good,” McIlroy said. “It’s great to hear that two weeks in a row there’s no positive tests. That’s what we just have to keep doing.

“Just because things are starting to lift and it’s getting a little more normal doesn’t mean that we just stop doing what we’ve been doing over the last 12 weeks. We still need to stay pretty vigilant.

“People have called it, like, this coronavirus fatigue or whatever, where people could become a little more complacent or sloppy. But again, most guys out here, their career really matters to them and they’re going to do everything they can to make sure that they’re safe and the people that they’re coming in contact with are safe.”

McIlroy, who finished tied for 32nd last weekend, is the betting favorite for the tournament. He’s closely followed by Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas. Here’s a list of names to watch atop the betting odds:

  • Rory McIlroy 12/1
  • Bryson DeChambeau 14/1
  • Justin Thomas 14/1
  • Jon Rahm 16/1
  • Xander Schauffele 20/1
  • Collin Morikawa 20/1
  • Webb Simpson 25/1
  • Justin Rose 30/1
  • Hideki Matsuyama 30/1
