Fantasy Golf: RBC Heritage

After the excitement of the Masters, things settle down somewhat at the Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina. That is for most players who were competing last weekend, but the list of absentees does not include the new Masters champion Jordan Spieth. He is, rightly so, installed as favourite to back up his dominant Masters performance with a win. He is the most selected player in Yahoo Fantasy Golf at 55%.

But one player rarely a fantasy team makes, as my grandfather used to say. So who will also be challenging for the winners purse at Hilton Head this week? After Spieth, the next most selected golfer on Yahoo is Patrick Reed at 45%. That is a very high number for me, as the C Group has a lot of golfers to choose from. People obviously feel his putting could be the difference on the small tough greens of Harbour Town. But his record isn't great here, so he just misses out in my team.

Who has been picked? Well read on! A few golfers in form and a few former winners here. Some old, some young. Hopefully a good mix come the shake-up on Sunday.

As always, Yahoo Fantasy Golf allows you to select eight golfers from three groups, where four score points for you each day; whereas Official PGA Fantasy Golf lets you pick any four golfers and you only score points on their finishing positions.

Group A
Jim Furyk
Webb Simpson
Ben Martin

Group B
Zack Johnson
Jordan Speith
Ian Poulter
Kevin Streelman
Graeme McDowell
Chris Kirk

Group C
Ernie Els
Jason Bohn
Patrick Reed
Charlie Hoffman
Zac Blair
John Huh
Russell Knox
Russell Henley
Sean O'Hair
