RBC Heritage

We got the RBC Heritage this week playing at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Tidbits:

- Past 3 winners: Cheng Tsung Pan, Satoshi Kodaira, and Wesley Bryan

- Riggs w/ Barstool Sports claimed he was tracking Tiger's yacht into Sea Island, GA which is right next to Hilton Head getting everyone excited Tiger might play. That rumor was false.

-  Cut has been at E the past two years. 

- Hole 9, par 4,  should be fun to watch, based off the website, it is playing around 315 yards. Smart play is lay up, but does Bryson say screw it?

Does Bryson's hulk power set him up for a good week, can he keep his drives in play? Will Xander and Collin not let the lip outs affect their play this week? Who is the guy that comes out of nowhere and wins it?

I've got my money on Morikawa coming out and winning this one. This is a ball striker's paradise and length will not have the advantage at Harbor Town that it does at a lot of other courses on tour. Morikawa might be the best iron player on tour right now (aside from Tiger).

Although my heart is for Spieth to win this week. The guy is so close to being back to 2015 Jordan and having him back would be great for the game.

I commented on the Charles Schwab thread, I like the Collin Morikawa / Xander Shauffele -VS- the Bryson DeChambeau / Matt Wolff strategy conversation that is starting to bubble up. There are two archetypes now emerging and its kind of nice to see an alternative to all out distance for winning tournaments proving itself out.

With that said, Morikawa’s average drive is 297yards (that ranks him 112th), which is still completely unrelatable for amateurs, so he’s not exactly short off the tee, but he’s also not sniffing 200mph ball speed, so it’s all relative.

I got a couple “not so favorites” I’m pulling for this week to potentially pull out the W. 
1) Joel Dahmen - 4 top 20 in a row. Trending in right direction.

2) Kevin Kisner - has always played well here. Maybe he finally pulls it out this year.

3) Wesley Bryan - first tourney in 18ish months coming off surgery. Honestly just hoping he makes the cut and posts some solid numbers.

Huge Wesley fan so I completely agree. From his YouTube vlogs he looks pretty solid, especially playing a track he has won at. Really would love to see him play well!

I’ve been watching the YouTube matches Every time they come out. Poor George, he just doesn’t stand a chance even though he plays pretty well.

I think both Dahmen and Kisner have a chance. Kisner is from SC and Dahmen is playing very well. Kuchar is another that plays this course well and could easily be in contention.

I'm going with one of these four to win it though: Bryson DeChambeau, Sungjae Im, Branden Grace, and Jason Kokrak.

They are playing at my favorite place. There’s just something about That area that is just so good. Here’s a photo from when I played there in 2018.

That sure looks like a gorgeous course.  My man Webb is off to a good start.

If I were everyone but Bryson... I would be working out more.

He is proving that he can bomb and gouge... and play on a tight course... he will overpower and outwit some of the great courses. Can you imagine him at The Open...?

He will be in the top 5 at the Masters.

Spieth sure misses a ton of short putts for somebody that makes so many long ones!

PGA just announced that Nick Watney has tested positive for C-19.  https://www.foxsports.com/golf/story/watney-first-on-pga-tour-to-test-positive-for-covid-19-061920

Looks like the protocols are working.  All the best to Nick.... bummer.

It's been impressive to watch. He's 25 under in the 6 rounds he's played since the Tour restarted and on courses that he can't even fully unleash his full potential with the driver. It's going to be really interesting to see how things go when he gets to the bombers courses.

If I were everyone but Bryson... I would be working out more.

One of the guys I was pulling for, Wesley Bryan, made the cut at -5. I’m not sure his status on the tour, but hopefully he can go low the next two days and help himself out.

The course seems to be favoring the morning guys as a couple guys went -8 today from the morning wave and -7 from Thursday. Let’s see who can post a low number tomorrow to push Webb and Bryson. I also don’t think Webb can keep up making so many long putts. If it comes down between Webb and Bryson, advantage Bryson from what I’ve seen.

I haven't been watching yet, just catching highlights and clips, but Nick Faldo's dry sense of humor has been great IMO.

Koepka tees off.

Faldo: "He said he wants us to shut up so let's see what he has to say about that shot"

4 seconds of silence

Faldo: "Absolutely fascinating stuff!"

------

Rory tees off, ends up in the trees right of the fairway.

Rory: "Every f****** time!"

Faldo: "He's using the technical term there for 'blocking it right'"
