Matt Kuchar is one of four bets for this week's RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links.
Jason Day holds favouritsm at 6/1. His record around Harbour Town isn't the best and that is not surprising as his game is more suited to a different test. Unless Jason takes a different strategy off the tee then I suspect he will come up short here again. Although the world's top 5 golfers have been winning pretty much everything of late, I don't feel the price on offer about the Australian is anywhere near enough value for us to bet.
With Matt Kuchar's driving in such excellent form it is hard to get away from his chances this week. He has a win posted here in 2014 as well as three other top ten finishes. He has just missed one cut here in his time. Kuchar thrives in these conditions and considering he topped the driving accuracy stats last week at a whopping 82% he should be in prime shape off the tee to capitalise on Harbour Town.
His win ratio on tour is always a slight worry but at these spots where he is likely to contend he must be closely looked at. He has a whole host of form on Pete Dye courses as well so this is truly set up for the happiest man in golf. I find it hard to believe that Paul Casey is ahead of him in the betting in an event like this. Kuchar has all the tools for Harbour Town and rates my top bet of the week.
Harbour Town is very tight off the tee and we're taking a gamble that Grace gets it right as from time to time he can be a bit wayward. The wind is likely to blow all week and conditions will be tough enough so I fully expect Grace to lick his lips at the prospect of winning this event. He finished 7th on debut last year and is simply overpriced to better that effort.
