Top Five Picks

Ian Poulter

43-year-old veteran Ian Poulter has made the cut in all nine events he’s played this season while recording seven Top 25 finishes and two Top 10 finishes including a T3 at the WGC-Mexico Championship in February. Poulter also finished T17 at the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play event to close out March, but that’s not what makes me think he can win this event. No…for me, it was Poluter’s fine, 12th place finish at the Masters this past weekend that leads me to believe he’s super confident coming into this event and a real threat to all of the top favorites. Poulter finished T7 in this event a year ago and I like him to challenge!

Jim Furyk

So what Jim Furyk is just two years shy of the Big 5-0…I say he’s got a great chance to claim the hardware in the 2019 RBC Heritage Open. First and foremost, Furyk has won this event twice (2010, 2015) in his career. Not only that, but the 2003 U.S. Open winner has clearly been revitalized recently. Furyk has made eight of 10 cuts this season, while recording seven Top 25 finishes and three Top 10 finishes including a fantastic second place finish at The PLAYERS Championship in mid-March. I’m thinking Furyk has a chance and a really good one at that!

Dustin Johnson

The World No. 1 might still be stuck on one major (2016 U.S. Open), but he’s super gifted and looking good as he comes into this event off a spectacular T2 at last week’s Masters. Johnson has made the cut in all nine events he’s played this season while recording six Top 25 finishes and six Top 10 finishes. Johnson won the WGC-Mexico Championship and has a trio of Top 6 finishes in his last four events. If Johnson is hungry (he will be) he’ll definitely challenge for the win, just based on his immense talent level alone.

Xander Schauffele

I love the way the 25-year-old Schauffele played in last week’s Masters where he finished T2. Not only that, but this gifted golfer has made the cut 10 times in 11 events this season while recording a mind-boggling nine Top 25 finishes, four Top 10 finishes and a pair of victories at the WGC-HSBC Champions event in October and another win in the Sentry Tournament of Champions in January. Schauffele will make his second appearance at Harbour Town after finishing T32 last year and I’m expecting him to challenge for the outright win.

Patrick Cantlay

The 27-year-old Cantlay has made the cut eight times in 10 events this season while recording eight Top 25 finishes and five Top 10 finishes, including a second place finish in the Shriners Hospital for Children Open in November. Cantlay has a pair of Top 10 finishes in his last four events including a statement-making ninth place finish at last week’s Masters. Not only that, but Cantlay also finished T7 and T3 in each of the past two years in this event, making him my top pick to pull off the ‘upset’ win as a value-packed 24-1 pick!
