RBC Heritage Winning Formula

Accurate iron-play to find the small greens is vital around Harbour Town Golf Links.

Even the most precise players will miss the odd green so getting up-and-down successfully is important. Past champions tend to play well and multiple winners are not uncommon. 

Harbour Town Golf Links is the only host course the event has known so course form is key. This week is all about precision over power

The following is a breakdown of the strokes gained for the last three winners of the RBC Heritage;
