Now for the picks...
GolfChannel.com Fantasy Golf
Last Week: 357.5 points
Last Week Rank: 4,158
Wesley Bryan ($24,200)
Graeme McDowell ($20,900)
Luke Donald ($18,600)
Cameron Smith ($15,100)
Morgan Hoffmann ($11,000)
Ian Poulter ($9,900)
ANALYSIS: Poulter is fighting for his TOUR status so that price tag makes him an easy pick. Morgan Hoffmann and Wesley Bryan both have some local ties. Luke Donald and G-Mac both bring some course history and if a short-game competition breaks out then I'd love to a guy like Cam Smith on my squad.
Last Week: 287 points
Last Week Rank: 12,236
Brian Gay - $4,500
Matt Kuchar - $33,000
Jim Furyk - $27,600
Luke Donald - $18,600
Ben Martin - $9,100
Boo Weekley - $6,000
ANALYSIS: A lot of course history, ball-striking, and Southern ties. Could be the recipe for success this week.
Last Week: 348.5 points
Last Week Rank: 5,177
Kevin Na ($29,500)
William McGirt ($29,000)
Lucas Glover ($15,700)
Kyle Stanley ($12,200)
Patrick Cantlay ($9,300)
John Peterson ($4,300)
ANALYSIS: Ball-striking is the name of the game here for Mo. If Valspar proves to be a worthy pointer like it often does than Cantlay's runner-up finish there looks even better.

*Make sure you check our Twitter accounts for any updates before the first tee ball flies on Thursday. Change in weather, tee times, etc. can always lead to last-minute changes and we will let you know through our social media channels.
RBC Heritage Strategy: The current forecast doesn't call for any major draw advantage. This area is known to have the winds whip up, so keep your eye on the forecast ahead of Thursday's lock time.

Luke Donald (10): Podium finishes in six of his last eight RBC Heritage starts. Hard to ignore that course history.
Bill Haas (10): On the flip side of Donald, Haas keeps returning to this event but failing to rack up any top-heavy finishes. He's too talented to keep showing up without finding a top 10.

Graeme McDowell, Branden Grace
Jim Furyk (9): He's searching for his form, but Harbour Town Golf Links provides a perfect canvas to do so.
Matt Kuchar (9): Backdoored a top 5 at the Masters last week. You're paying for consistency here.
Francesco Molinari (8): A rare week for Molinari where he's seeing a course for the third time. With a little familiarity now under his belt, I expect him to eclipse last year's T45 here.
Kevin Na (7): Top 10s in three of his last four visits to Hilton Head. Much like Furyk, this is a good venue to regain his form.
Adam Hadwin, Kevin Kisner, Charles Howell III, Charley Hoffman
Tyrrell Hatton (10): First time deciding to pull the trigger on the Englishman. Much like Branden Grace two years, he's playing great ahead of his debut here and wouldn't surprise me if we see a similar result (T7 for Grace in his debut). I am forgiving him for last week's MC at Augusta National.
Jason Dufner (8): His game looks balanced for a change as his putting has been strong recently. If he keeps the putter hot then there is no reason he shouldn't be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.
