This week, the PGA Tour presents the golf betting community with the 2021 RBC Heritage.
Before I dive into my favorite golf bets let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key statistics that I feel are the most vital to a golfer’s success this week.
The 2021 RBC Heritage will be played at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The golf course is a par 71 that measures 7,099 yards. The track offers ten holes with water hazards and tree lined fairways that requires precision off the tee. It should also be noted that this Pete Dye designed course offers small bermuda grass greens that are difficult to hit from the rough.
The key statistics that I will be focusing on this week are driving accuracy, strokes gained approach, strokes gained ball striking, strokes gained around the green, and strokes gained putting.
Let shift our focus to my favorite golf bets for the 2021 RBC Heritage.
Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Abraham Ancer +400 - The 30 year old Mexican arrives at this week's PGA Tour event in very good form. Let me be more specific. Ancer has played 13 events on the PGA Tour since the beginning of October. In those 13 events played, Ancer has ten top 28 finishes, including a fifth place result at the American Express earlier this year.
I also like the fact that Ancer has played well at the Harbour Town Golf Links in the past. Ancer finished second at the 2020 RBC Heritage.
Chris Kirk +600 – Since the beginning of January, Kirk has played eight golf tournaments on the PGA Tour. In those eight events just mentioned, Kirk has six top 16 finishes, including a sixth place result at the Valero Texas Open earlier this month.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 RBC Heritage field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Kirk ranks in ninth in strokes gained around the green, 11th in strokes gained tee to green, and eighth in driving accuracy.
