The PGA TOUR heads south to the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island, S.C.

PRIME MATCHUPS

Each week we'll take a look at the best round matchups to try and build up a nice bankroll.

Si Woo Kim (-105) vs. Marc Leishman (-115): Kim has made two career appearances at Harbour Town, and he has been good at this event. He was 14th in the 2016 installment, and he lost in a playoff last season to Satosi Kohaira. As such, he is a tremendous option in a matchup against Leishman, who missed the cut last season, was 44th at the event in 2017, and 30th in 2016. 

Jim Furyk (-125) vs. Matthew Fitzpatrick (-105): Furyk has made 13 appearances at Harbour Town since the 2005 season, missing the cut just three times. During that span he has won this event twice, finished as a runner-up on two other occasions and he has been eighth or better in seven of those 13 showings. Not many golfers know this course better than Furyk, and he'll shine head-to-head against the inexperienced Fitzpatrick.

Sungjae Im (-105) vs. Jason Kokrak (-125): Kokrak might be the golfer with a slightly better pedigree in this matchup, but he has had a devil of a time trying to solve Harbour Town lately. In three appearances from 2014-16 he was 18th or better, including a sixth-place run in 2016. However, he has missed the cut in each of his past two outings at Harbour Town, and he hasn't been terribly effective anywhere else on the circuit this season, either.

Last event (Masters): 3-3 (-25)
This season: 11-11-2 (-75)

OTHER BETS

Top 20 Finish - Dustin Johnson (-330): Johnson is heavy chalk to finish in the Top 20, but he should be good to go in this event against a field with a decent amount of stars, but one where he should shine brightest.

Top 20 Finish - Jim Furyk (+135): Furyk has the course history which is very good, and he has the even temperament to get the job done as well.

Top 20 Finish - Si Woo Kim (+155): As mentioned above, Kim doesn't have a very long course history at Harbour Town, but he has finished 14th and second in two starts. That includes his runner-up finish from a season ago. Look for Kim to shine yet again on Hilton Head Island.

Last week: 5-1 (+450)
This season: 12-15 (+92)
