RBC Heritage 2020: Surprising PGA Ratings, Predictions of a Compound Model Who Won Six Major Tournaments


The RBC Heritage 2020 will offer viewers starred groups in the first two days of action. The best player in the world, Rory McIlroy, will play alongside Rickie Fowler and reigning champion C.T. Pan around when the first starts of RBC Heritage 2020 start on Thursday June 18 from Harbor Town Golf Links. McIlroy makes his first appearance in Harbor Town since 2009, while Pan is looking to defend his title and Fowler hopes to bounce back after missing the cup last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. McIlroy is Vegas’ favorite at 11-1 according to the latest 2020 RBC Heritage rating at William Hill.

Meanwhile, Jon Rahm, the world’s number 2 player, will be paired with Justin Rose and Justin Thomas, who is one of two players to have won multiple games this season. Which players in the RBC Heritage 2020 field should you support? Before locking in on an RBC Heritage 2020 choice or participating in PGA DFS tournaments on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings, be sure to see the golf forecast and rankings projected from SportsLine’s proven computer model.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has successfully passed two of the last three major tournaments entering this weekend. This predicts Gary Woodland’s first major championship in his career at the US Open, although he wasn’t the favorite this weekend. The result: Woodland retained a late charge from Brooks Koepka and won by three strokes. The model also qualified Koepka’s historic victory in the 2019 PGA Championship, predicting that he would maintain his lead in the final stretch.

In all, their advanced computer model nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. And already this season, the model called Justin Thomas (15-2) winning the CJ Cup, Rory McIlroy (11-2) winning the WGC-HSBC champions and Viktor Hovland (11-1) winning his first career victory on the PGA Tour to the Puerto Rico Open. McClure also returned a huge +788 at the Charles Schwab Challenge 2020 last week, including nailing the top five bets on Xander Schauffele at 13-2 and Collin Morikawa at 9-1. Anyone who has followed their golf choices has seen huge returns.

Now that the RBC Heritage 2020 field is locked, SportsLine has simulated the event 10,000 times and the results have been surprising. Head over to SportsLine now to see the full standings scheduled.

The best RBC 2020 model forecast for the model

A huge shock that the model claims: Bryson DeChambeau, five-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top three favorites in Vegas at 16-1, stumbles and does not even crack the top five. It arrives with momentum after recording four consecutive fifths or better arrivals. But consistency was a challenge for the SMU product that went pro in 2016. He finished outside the top 50 at the Phoenix Open earlier this year and started the 2019-2020 PGA calendar by missing the cup at Greenbrier.

Although he smashed the ball off the tee with an average driving distance of 321.3 yards, accuracy was a concern. DeChambeau is ranked 122nd on tour with 60.44% driving precision and has touched only 220 of 364 possible fairways this season. The model took it into account and blows it up this week, making it one of the favorites of RBC Heritage 2020 to avoid in a busy field.

Another surprise: Webb Simpson, a 30-1 long shot, made a solid title race. He has a much better chance of winning whatever his odds entail, so he is the target of anyone looking for a huge salary.

The 34-year-old American had a stormy start this season, claiming his sixth career victory on the PGA Tour earlier this year at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Simpson has finished in the top 10 in four of his six starts this season and has also had many successes at Harbor Town Golf Links in recent years. In fact, Simpson has finished 11th or better in two of his last three starts at RBC Heritage.

Despite missing the cup last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge, Simpson is still ranked second on the PGA Tour by average score (68.863) and birdie average (4.68). In addition, it enters the RBC Heritage 2020 program with more than 71% of greens in regularization, so it regularly puts itself in position to stack birdies, which will be the key to an event where the winner will have completed at least 12 under par of four in the past five years.

How to Make RBC Heritage 2020 Choices

In addition, the model says that five other golfers with a score of 22-1 or more will make a solid title run. Anyone who supports these outsiders could hit hard. You can only see them here.
