Since, Tiger's not playing this week, I'll start the thread. :wink:

Course: Harbour Town Golf Links: Par 71 7099 yards designed by Pete Dye and Jack Nicklaus
500 Fed Ex Cup Points at stake and we are well into the second half of the year in that race
Purse: $6, 900, 000
Defending Champion: Satoshi Kodiara

The current field: https://www.pgatour.com/tournaments/rbc-heritage/field.html
It is an invitational, so there are no Monday qualfiers

Nosferatu projects the first place points for this event at a stellar 60!
The 2018 event had first place points of only 52. This may be the strongest field for this event in decades when it was played before The Masters.

Top 50 in the field (plus one)
1 Dustin Johnson
7 Francesco Molinari
8 Bryson DeChambeau
9 Xander Schauffele
15 Tommy Fleetwood
16 Matt Kuchar
18 Patrick Cantlay
20 Webb Simpson
22 Marc Leishman
25 Kevin Kisner
29 Cameron Smith
30 Ian Poulter
31 Rafa Cabrera-Bello
32 Alex Noren
34 Jordan Spieth
35 Matthew Fitzpatrick
36 Matt Wallace
39 Eddie Pepperell (this tournament may qualify as a Rolex event on the European Tour)
42 Billy Horschel
44 Justin Harding
45 Branden Grace
46 Charles Howell III
49 Brandt Snedeker
50 Shane Lowry
51 Jim Furyk

    that's actually a pretty good field ... tournament has a great atmosphere about it ... nice, laid back place on the beach ... different golf course than they're used to ... can take the family, hang out, have a drink and de-stress a bit ... probably one of my top 10 tournaments to watch ... would love to attend it one year ...

  • dropkickeddropkicked TorontoMembers Posts: 493 ✭✭

    Alright, dropped on Schauffele @ +1600!! ... going with some sprinkles on Poulter @ +4000, Leishman @ +5000, Snedeker @ +6600, Hoffman @ +6000...

    While most years this event feels like a "letdown" due to it being after The Masters; I have a special interest in this year's event since I'm playing the course in late June on vacation.

    Opinions are my own and are never to be taken seriously.
    and for God's sake, if you're going to whine about Jim Nantz, have the respect to spell his name correctly.

    Really a decent field for the week after the Masters. If this tournament was any other week, it would be a lot more popular.

    think it's a great date ... they can simply drive over ... international players can get another shot at a pga tour win, with less top competition ... lot of the top folks will take zurich off regardless ... you get some older golfers each year that are very recognizable that probably didn't make the masters ... someone has to follow the masters, and there's no guarantee the tournament would get a premiere slot if it didn't ...

    Pay attention to how many of the guys playing will have an RBC logo on their left sleeve. Thats why they showed up. Its also why they showed up to the Canadian Open the week after the British.

    Always feel sorry for the RBC. Great event but following on from The Masters in any year is a tough sell. Following on from this Masters it is gong to be a complete downer.

    The next European Tour event isn't until next week in Morocco, so they were able to beef up the field a bit with those additions.

    Really nice to a stronger field this year, Hilton Head is just an awesome course and requires some proper shot shaping.

    Given how poor Speith is off the tee and tee to green for far in 2019 I'm surprised he would play at a course as narrow as HT.

    Is DL III playing? Always has a great show at HT. Still though, after last week, I agree with the sentiment that its a let down week.

    I love this course, played there years ago and really enjoyed my round. I’d love to attend one year, maybe when I finally win the Masters lottery.

    I think it’s a great date, very relaxed atmosphere following a major and they never have a problem drawing a good field. I’d love to see Luke Donald win this week, he needs some good results and he always plays well here.

    Maybe Kodiara can regain his form and repeat as champion. These are great groups. Looking forward to this tournament. I love the course.

    depends who he hangs out with. KJ Choi, yes he definitely needs translator. Kevin Na & John Huh, no need.

    Looking at the weather forecast for Friday - it's going to be very difficult. 100% for rain, with some storms very severe. My windsurfing site forecasts the winds at 27, gusting close to 50mph. There is a gale warning for the offshore waters.

    Was wondering if Cameron Champ is back so went to the leaderboard and scrolled all the way down. Yep, he's back!
    Completely joking because I'm rooting for him!
