The 2016 RBC Heritage golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from April 14-17, 2016, at the Harbor Town Golf Links at the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Here is a list of the betting odds for the PGA golfers to win the 2016 RBC Heritage golf tournament.
The RBC Heritage golf tournament dates back to 1969 when Arnold Palmer won the inaugural event. Davis Love III (1987, 1991, 1992, 1998, 2003) holds the record for most wins in the tournament with five followed by Hale Irwin (1971, 1973, 1994) with three wins. The big news for the 2016 RBC Heritage is that Jason Day is in the field and he is easily the highest ranked golfer here this week.
Listed below are all the PGA golfers with odds of 50 to 1 or less with comments. Then a number of notable golfers are also listed with comments who have much higher odds this week to win the 2016 RBC Heritage.
Good luck to all the PGA golfers and especially the bettors this week at the 2016 RBC Heritage!
1. Jason Day – 5.5 to 1 odds
After a 10th place tie in the Masters last week, Jason Day is still ranked as the #1 golfer in the world and he’s the fairly heavy favorite to win the 2016 RBC Heritage at betting odds of 5.5 to 1. Prior to The Masters, Jason Day won the Arnold Palmer and the WGC Match play in back-to-back weeks but he took a week off before the Masters. He’ll win this week if he’s back to his previous form but is 5.5 to 1 odds worth the risk?
2. Paul Casey – 16 to 1
Paul Casey tied for 4th at Augusta last week and now he’s the second choice in the betting odds to win this week at 16 to 1. Paul Casey has only won once on the PGA Tour back in 2009. He does have 13 European Tour wins but his last win was in 2014.
3. Brandt Snedeker – 20 to 1
Brandt Snedeker tied with Jason Day last week in 10th place at the Masters. Snedeker has eight PGA Tour wins including his latest win which was at the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open in early February. Snedeker also won this tournament in 2011.
4. Matt Kuchar, Zach Johnson – 22 to 1 odds each
Matt Kuchar tied for 24th at the Masters. Kuchar has seven PGA Tour wins but his last win was in the RBC Heritage in 2014. Zach Johnson has not won since capturing his second major at the 2015 British Open last July. He has 12 PGA Tour wins. He missed the cut last week but improvement is expected this week.
6. Kevin Kisner – 25 to 1
Kevin Kisner tied for 37th place at the Masters last week. He’s 32 years old and his only PGA Tour win came last November in the RSM Classic. He’s a tough bet here at only 25 to 1 odds.
7. Matthew Fitzpatrick – 30 to 1
Young 21 year old Matthew Fitzpatrick from England tied for 7th at the Masters earning himself a return trip next year. Fitzpatrick has a lot of talent and he won his first pro tournament last October at the 2015 British Masters on the European Tour. If Jason Day falters this week this kid could win.
T-8. Bill Haas, Justin Thomas – 33 to 1 odds each
Bill Haas tied for 24th last week at the Masters. Haas has six PGA Tour wins with his last win coming in January of 2015. Justin Thomas tied for 39th at the Masters. Thomas is 22 years old and he won for the first time on tour last November in the 2015 CIMB Classic.
T-10. Billy Horschel, Branden Grace, Kevin Na – 40 to 1 odds each
Kevin Na has now played in 312 PGA events and he only has one win. Branden Grace missed the cut at the Masters last week but the 27 year old has seven European Tour wins including the 2016 Qatar Masters in January. Billy Horschel tied for 17th at the Masters last week which is not bad but Horschel only has three tour wins and his last win was at the Tour Championship in 2014.
T-13. Jason Dufner, Charles Howell, Charley Hoffman, Tony Finau, Luke Donald, Graeme McDowell – 50 to 1 odds each
Graeme McDowell won the RBC Heritage in 2013. He missed the cut last week as did Jason Dufner. Charley Hoffman tied for 29th at the Masters last week. The rest of these golfers at 50 to 1 odds each did not play last week in the major.
Luke Donald is a fomer #1 ranked golfer but he’s not won a tournament since 2012. Charles Howell has two wins on tour in 463 starts. He’s a talented golfer but he never wins. Tony Finau won for the first time on tour on March 27, 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, an alternate PGA Tour event.
- Bryson DeChambeau – 66 to 1 odds
After being the low amateur at the Masters and tying for 21st place overall, Bryson DeChambeau is turning pro for the 2016 RBC Heritage.Not many golfers win their pro debuts and this guy should be higher than 66 to 1 odds this week.
- Boo Weekley – 140 to 1 odds
Boo Weekley won the RBC Heritage in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008. Weekley also won at Colonial in 2013 for three career PGA Tour wins. Boo made the cut in his last two tournaments but he was no threat to win either time.
- Aaron Baddeley – 140 to 1 odds
Aaron Baddeley won the RBC Heritage in 2006. Baddeley missed the cut at Houston two weeks ago in his last start. He’s got three PGA Tour wins but his last win was in 2011.
