Twofer Tuesday: RBC Heritage

Twofer Tuesday once again dons its gloves and mask as it heads to the rescheduled RBC Heritage.

It's easy to understand why Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head isn't hosting any fans. The course is notoriously short and narrow; at par-71 and just under 7100 yards in length, it effectively levels the field between long and average-length hitters. And as a joint effort between Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus, it's about as strategic as any course on Tour.

C.T. Pan is the defending champion and, if he succeeds at doing so, he'll break the string of four first-time winners at this event. So there's a good chance we'll see another firsttimer this week.

Enough of the formalities -- let's get to my picks.
  • After just missing out in a playoff at Colonial, I'm taking Collin Morikawa. He's currently riding strings of 22 made cuts and 28 rounds of par or better. And that missed putt on 17 in the playoff? A number of players missed putts on that green, so I expect him to realize that and put it behind him quickly. Harbour Town is a great place for him to pick up his second win.
  • And I HAVE to pick Bryson DeChambeau. Why? Because he's gone to a place no one has been before by bulking up massively without losing his game. He just missed out on the playoff last week. Plus he has two Top5s in four trips to the coast. Could he be the guy to win this event with a power game? I wanna see!
GC's official fanless coverage starts Thursday at 3pm ET, but you know they're going to do a pregame show and they might even work out something with PGA TOUR LIVE, just like they did last week.

In any case, we're up for some more golf, baby!
