AFTER a great Masters Paul Casey will be on a high for the RBC Heritage this week at the Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
One of two players who had no bogeys in the final round last week – winner Danny Willett was the other – Casey is on a roll and hopefully the feelgood factor from last week will carry on this week.
Probably driving accuracy and GIR are going to be important and with driving accuracy of 64.29% (T63) and GIR 70.74% (20th) Casey should be up there.
I’m also looking at Kevin Kisner who crashed here to Jim Furyk in the first of three play-off losses last year. In driving accuracy he is 71.10% (7th) and in GIR 69.17 (T37), which is really good and to add a sweetener to the pot he is third in putting average (1.705).
Winner of the RSM when I tipped him at the beginning of the season and after a terrific T37 at The Masters on his debut I expect him to go well here.
As the Brits were in great form in the Masters I’ve gone for another one here at Harbour Town. Matthew Fitzpatrick birdied four of the last four holes and finished with a 67 for a T7 finish last week. He is 10th (70.24%) in driving accuracy, 68.52% in GIR (53rd) and 32nd in strokes gained:putting.
I had two places at The Masters, Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama, so hoping to land a winner this week.
