With that being said, let's get stuck into our GolfMagic Fantasy picks for the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links. 

Ben's GolfMagic Fantasy picks

This week I'm picking one player from Pot 1, two players from Pot 2, one player from Pot 3 and one from Pot 4. 

Pot 1 - Patrick Cantlay (C)

Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler may be favoured by the bookmakers ahead of Cantlay, but Rahm might be a little bit exhausted after a mentally draining week in which he picked up his maiden green jacket. Scheffler is also a fine pick but he was frustrated with his putting at Augusta National. As for Cantlay, he has played this event four times in the last five years and knows Harbour Town well, finishing T-7 or better in three of those appearances. As they say in the business, Cantlay is 'trending' in the right direction. He finished third at Tiger Woods' Genesis Invitational and T-4 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

Pot 2 - Justin Thomas, Shane Lowry

Justin Thomas is coming off a missed cut at The Masters so will have a point to prove. I was very close to picking defending champion Jordan Spieth but the American mentioned after his Masters that he's feeling mentally fatigued. He loves Hilton Head, but my gut is telling me he's one to fade this week. Thomas has also performed well in the designated events he's played in, finishing in the top-25 in four of the five he's teed it up in so I wouldn't be surprised to see him make a run for his 16th PGA Tour title. Thomas has also shot par or better in each of his last seven rounds here, with two top-12 finishes in two of four starts. Lowry has spoken before how Harbour Town is one of his favourite stops. He's coming off another impressive Augusta performance where in truth the only thing that was holding him back was his putter. If you take a look at the stats, you'll see that Lowry has never lost strokes putting here, so the former Open champ digs these greens. I'm feeling optimistic about the Irishman. 

Pot 3 - Sahith Theegala

Theegala finished T-70 last year and even posted an ugly 79 in his final round. But, he played terrific at Augusta and is looking to extend his streak of 13 cuts made. For Theegala, it feels as if it's a matter of when not if he finds his first PGA Tour title. 

Pot 4 - Rickie Fowler

Fowler didn't play The Masters for the second year in a row because he didn't qualify. He was ever so close though because he appears to have found his game again. Butch Harmon reckons he'll win again this year. He might be an outside pick but I believe in Fowler! 

The rules:

Team selection

You must pick a team of five golfers for each tournament in the PGA Tour season. There are no player values or salary cap for selections, however you must respect the Pots criteria, better explained in the next section.  Golfers who are not in the field will not be available for selection. Golfers who withdrawal from a tournament before the start and are still within your team will not be earning any points.
Each week your team will be wiped, so you must pick a fresh team ahead of each tournament. This is to ensure that you have five active golfers in your team each week to maximize your scoring potential. 
You will be able to pick a new team at approximately midday on Monday (BST).


You have up until the first scheduled tee-time to pick your team or make edits to your team.  If you do not submit a team by this time, you will be automatically assigned five players.  No team edits are permitted after this deadline.

Players pots

Your 5 players will be chosen from 4 pots:  

  • Pot 1 will be golfers ranked 1-10 (Official World ranking) 

  • Pot 2 will be golfers ranked 11-25 (Official World ranking) 

  • Pot 3 will be golfers ranked 26-50 (Official World ranking) 

  • Pot 4 for will be all remaining golfers (Official World ranking) 

Selection restrictions are as follows: 

  • You can only pick a maximum of 2 players from pot 1

  • You can only pick a maximum of 3 players from pots 1 and 2 combined 

  • You can only pick a maximum of 4 players from pots 1, 2 and 3 combined

  • You can only pick a maximum of 5 players from pots 1, 2, 3 and 4 combined
