We’ll have to wait and see if anybody withdraws from the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina, but even if some players do, this is still arguably the best field we’ve had for the week after the Masters.
With so many standouts in the field, we’ll really have to look deep to find some money-saving players so that we can put a few of the top guys in the lineup. Fortunately, that’s what we look to do every week here at BangTheBook with value options.
You certainly want to leave yourself as much room as possible to roster the best of the best, but that requires some players that are quite a ways down the board in order to have enough salary cap room left.
A lot of the players in the field are guys that either need a win to get into the Masters or guys that just want to smooth out the rough edges of their games before the first major of the season. Most of golf’s biggest names are taking a week off to prep for the Masters.
This is the PGA Tour’s flagship event and it has a prize pool in excess of $12 million. The first place cut is $2.25 million. Also, this is one hell of a challenge a few weeks in advance of the Masters at Augusta National.
