The PGA Tour’s latest signature event takes place this week with a limited-size field battling for the RBC Heritage title, while the Corales Puntacana Championship is the other tournament being played on the US circuit.

Quite often, the event immediately after the Masters produces a weaker field, with many of the leading players taking a rest, but the signature status of the Heritage means the world’s best will be teeing it up at Harbour Town Golf Links.

While the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Ludvig Aberg fight it out in South Carolina, there will also be action in the Puntacana Championship at Corales Golf Club in the Dominican Republic.

RBC Heritage golf betting tips

Tommy can break Stateside duck

Tommy Fleetwood arrives here on the back of his best Masters finish of T3 at Augusta National – and he can keep that momentum going by landing his first PGA Tour title.

With narrow fairways and small greens, Harbour Town is a course that demands a steady player from tee to green and it bodes well that the Englishman is second in driving accuracy.

The 33-year-old has finishes of 10th and 15th on his last two Heritage appearances and it would be no surprise to see him in contention come Sunday.

Tip: Outright winner – Tommy Fleetwood @ 20/1 with bet365

Burns to roar back to form

Sam Burns heads to Harbour Town after missing the cut at Augusta but there looks to be every chance he could rediscover his best form this week at an event he enjoys, with his four outings producing results of ninth, MC, 39th and 15th.

The American ranks 17th in total driving and 22nd in total strokes gained this season so there are still positive signs about his game, and the fact these greens are Bermuda grass should also aid his cause.

Of Burns’ five PGA Tour titles, four have come on Bermuda grass greens, while his two best results this season, at the Phoenix Open and American Express, came on the same surface.

Tip: Outright winner – Sam Burns @ 45/1 with bet365

Onwards and upwards for Pavon

Matthieu Pavon has raised his game over the last seven months, winning on the DP World Tour in October for the first time before then breaking his PGA Tour duck at the Farmers Insurance Open in January.

The Frenchman finished T12 on his Masters debut last week, helping him to reach a career-high world ranking of 22, and all aspects of his game look in fine shape.

Pavon is eighth in driving accuracy, 27th in greens in regulation and sixth in strokes gained: putting, and he can make a big splash on his course debut this week.

Tip: Outright winner – Matthieu Pavon @ 80/1 with bet365

Corales Puntacana Championship golf betting tips

Perez eyes PGA breakthrough

Approach play could prove crucial to success at the Puntacana Championship and Victor Perez – who is fourth in greens in regulation and 17th in strokes gained: approach – can thrive in the Dominican Republic.

The Frenchman has struggled on the greens this season but it’s worth noting that he putted well when finishing T3 at the Puerto Rico Open, which has paspalum greens, as does this week’s course.

Tip: Outright winner – Victor Perez @ 30/1 with bet365

Martin on the right course

Once ranked inside the top 50 in the world, Ben Martin is starting to rediscover the type of form that helped him get there after finishing T7 at the Texas Open on his most recent appearance.

After coming home 36th on his Puntacana debut in 2020, the 36-year-old American has finished ninth, second and eighth on his three appearances since and he looks set to be in the mix again.

Tip: Outright winner – Ben Martin @ 33/1 with bet365

Bridgeman can get in the mix

Jacob Bridgeman has been making steady progress in his rookie PGA Tour season, recording a couple of top-25 finishes, of which one came at the Puerto Rico Open.

The American’s approach play has been really sharp from 150 to 175 yards, a distance that may crop up a lot for him this week – and he has the tools to compete for the victory.

Tip: Outright winner – Jacob Bridgeman @ 66/1 with bet365
