Fantasy Golf: RBC Heritage preview


A thrilling 76th Masters Tournament is fresh in the memory, but there's no rest on the professional Tours or in the Today's Golfer Fantasy Golf game, in association with Your Golf Travel. This week's event is the RBC Heritage on the PGA Tour.

Harbour Town Golf Links is one of the best-loved courses on the Tour and the lighthouse backdrop to the 18th is an iconic image. This course has hosted the tournament since 1969.

The par 71 layout is relatively short at 6,973 yards but it makes up for this with some of the smallest greens on Tour and a number of tee shots where the players have to shape the ball.

Getting up-and-down for par hasn't been too tough over the years but the course will reward accurate irons players with a lot of makeable birdie opportunities.

Here is the six-man Today's Golfer team for the RBC Heritage:

Luke Donald, $5.5m
The world number one was a little lacklustre at Augusta but he won the Transitions four weeks ago. He boasts a fantastic record at Harbour Town that includes two seconds and a third in the last three years.

Matt Kuchar, $3.0m
He briefly shared the lead in the Masters on Sunday before finishing tied third, his fourth top-10 on the bounce. Hasn't missed the cut here in his last seven appearances.

Jim Furyk, $2.4m
The 2010 champion is finding his best form again after a quiet 2011 season. His last three performances have reaped T2-T11-11 finishes. His Harbour Town record also includes two seconds and a fourth in his last seven starts.

Ernie Els, $2.0m
The South African has been resurgent this season. He narrowly missed out on the Masters, but he hasn't missed a cut since last year's PGA Championship and is three results before his week of were T5-T4-T12.

Bryce Molder, $1.1m
He has six top 25s in eight PGA Tour starts in 2012 and should be a great fit for Harbour Town. His relatively short hitting shouldn't be a factor here and he's third on Tour in GIR, fourth in Strokes Gained-Putting and fifth in scrambling.

Brian Davis, $1.0m
The Englishman earnt a lot of friends after losing a play-off to Furyk in 2010 when he called a penalty on himself. He's notched consecutive tied fourth finishes in his last two PGA Tour starts.
