With all the preparation that went into the Masters last week, naturally there will be a much smaller field heading to Hilton Head, South Carolina this week. Big names like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Keegan Bradley, Rory McIlory, and Justin Rose will all be at home.
However, there will still be a handful of stars making the trip to Harbour Town. Brandt Snedeker and Jason Day are both coming off spectacular performances at the Masters and will attending the Hertiage this week. Expect them both to be popular fantasy picks in all formats.
To help you with your drafts this week, here are the top-20 fantasy golfers for the 2013 RBC Heritage.
20. Brendon de Jonge
Brendon de Jonge – BDJ has finished inside the top-11 twice in his last five tournaments.
19. Graeme McDowell
Graeme McDowell – After three consecutive top-nine finishes, McDowell finished 45th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and missed the cut at the Masters.
18. Bo Van Pelt
Bo Van Pelt – BVP had a couple strong rounds at the Masters and managed to finish 20th. The field isn’t nearly as packed this week, so expect Van Pelt to have another respectable performance.
17. Ernie Els
Ernie Els – Els finished 13th at the Masters last week.
16. K.J. Choi
K.J. Choi – Choi will be one of the most experienced golfers heading to Harbour Town. He is all but guaranteed to have a couple solid round this week.
15. Hunter Mahan
Hunter Mahan – Mahan started the year by finishing inside the top-26 in eight straight contests, but he has missed the cut in his two last tournaments. He will once again be a risky fantasy pick this week.
14. Jason Dufner
Jason Dufner – Dufner has cracked the top-21 in three consecutive tournaments.
13. Billy Horschel
Billy Horschel – In Horschel’s last two tournaments, he finished second at the Shell Houston Open and third at the Valero Texas Open.
12. Webb Simpson
Webb Simpson – Simpson has missed the cut in two consecutive tournaments, including the Masters last week. However, he has cracked the top-14 at the Heritage in two of the last three years.
11. Charley Hoffman
Charley Hoffman – Hoffman finished four under last year at the Heritage.
10. Zach Johnson
Zach Johnson – Johnson finished second here last year and will be a great sleeper pick to take a chance on.
9. Stewart Cink
Stewart Cink – Cink has won here twice since 2000 and his past success will make him a reliable fantasy option.
8. Brian Davis
Brian Davis – Davis finished 13th last year at the RBC, 21st in 2011, and second in 2010. He will be a great international veteran to target this week.
7. Luke Donald
Luke Donald – Donald has finished inside the top-25 in four of his five stateside appearances this year. He will always be a threat to win and will be a great sleeper after the big names come off the board.
6. Bill Haas
Bill Haas – Haas has five top-10 finishes already this year and continues to go unnoticed.
5. Carl Pettersson
Carl Pettersson – Pettersson won the RBC Heritage last year with a score of 14 strokes under par.
4. Boo Weekley
Boo Weekley - Weekley finished five under in 2012, two under in 2011, seven under in 2010, and won the Heritage in 2008 and 2007. Needless to say, he will be one of the most popular picks at Hilton Head this week.
3. Jim Furyk
Jim Furyk – Jim Furyk – In Furyk’s last three trips to Hilton Head, he finished four under 2012, five under in 2011, and won it in 2010 with a score of 13 under.
2. Jason Day
Jason Day – Day shockingly led the Masters for 36 holes last weekend. He is having a career season and deserves to be a top pick this week in South Carolina.
1. Brandt Snedeker
Brandt Snedeker – Snedeker’s sixth place finish at the Masters showed that he is over his nagging rib injury. Expect Sneeds to be the first fantasy golfer off the board this week.
