The PGA Tour returns to normal this week after the Masters but we do have an event steeped in history with its own winners jacket – the RBC Heritage from Harbour Town links.
This is an event where the shorter more accurate players tend to come to the fore which is nice for those who don’t bomb it off the tee.
Ben Martin was the player that first jumped off the page when I saw the prices on Monday – I had him marked down around 50-66 was was pleasantly surprised to see three figures on offer.
I had made a note as he lies 3rd in scoring average here out of those players who have played at least twice – only trailing Furyk and Weekley in that department – mainly due to a 3rd place last year.
Being a South Carolina native he has an extra incentive to win in his home state and most of his best form on the Web.com tour came on the East coast.
I can forgive him a missed cut at the Masters in his first pro start but he was coming nicely into form before that with a final round 65 at the PGA National and then finishing 5th at Bay Hill.
For me he ticks a lot of boxes this week and if he can warm the putter up he should go well £60 ew 100/1.
Matt Every also opened up a bigger price than I’d expected having successfully defended his title at Bay Hill.
His course form is fairly solid with an 8th and 12th alongside two missed cuts.
The reason I like him is that most of his best results have come at the shorter more traditional tracks where distance isn’t key and he also won the Web.com Tour Championship in South Carolina at the Daniel Island Club. £55 win 110 £25 top 5 20 Betfair.
Lastly I will put up Scott Brown who seems to be very much a horses for courses kind of player who lives and went to college in South Carolina.
He has been 1st,5th and 10th in Puerto Rico, 4th and 20th Sea Island, 5th and 7th Deere Run plus numerous other double top finishes on the lower tour.
He managed a 5th here last season and comes here in much the same form £40 win 260 average + £25 top 5 35 Betfair.
