This year we will be tracking each of our writers’ performances in our 100 person One And Done (OAD) pool. For those of you who do not know what a OAD pool is, it is a season long contest in which you select one golfer per week with the golfer’s earned money that week adding to your season total. Once you select a golfer, you cannot use him the rest of the year (so, no, you cannot pick DJ or Tiger every week).
Jake Mulholland: Collin Morikawa, 2nd-818K
Tony Kasper: Justin Rose, T3-366K
Bear: Kevin Kisner, T29-51K
Jack Corrigan: Kevin Na, MC-0K
Frank Laterza: Webb Simpson, MC-0K
Mike McNamara: Ryan Palmer, MC-0K
Kevin Walsh: Phil Mickelson, MC-0K
Sean Carney: Rickie Fowler, MC-0K
-Hoooooly cow. Boy was there some rust last week. 5/8 MC’s is almost impressive. But hey, I don’t think it’s possible to be worse next week, right?
-Props to Rouge and Tony for actually having great picks and returns though. Big time moves in the pool.
-Then there’s Bear, aka Steady Eddy. Just a purely mediocre pick by a man having a purely mediocre season.

RBC Heritage Picks
Kevin Walsh: Kevin Kisner — Coming back to South Carolina makes this a really special week each year for Kiz. He also knows it’s a great chance for him to contend and take home a trophy. Kiz played pretty well last week, but wasn’t able to put together a really low round. No worry here though, as this course suits him as well as any on the tour, and this is not a guy who will be dismayed about the quality of the field. Kiz is gonna battle anyone, anywhere. And this week, we think he’s gon battle all the way to the winner’s circle.
Tony Kasper: TBD
Frank Laterza: Bud Cauley — Buddy, MY Buddy. He didn’t have a bogey in his last 36 holes last weekend, was 2nd is SG around the green (kind of important here), and T12 in scrambling (also important). Buddy isn’t the longest, but he can iron and scramble with the best of them. He has also finished Top 25 in two of the last three years here in Hilton Head. I enjoy a T20 bet at +500 for him if you’re into moneys. Kiss those dice and let them roll!
Mike McNamara: Rickie Fowler — After a long hiatus, Ryan Palmer did not deliver for us at Colonial. This week, I’m going with a man who also didn’t see the weekend at Colonial. I still believe Rickie is in good form, and throughout his career he typically bounces back from missed cuts with some positive results. I think this week at Harbour Town could be extra special for him. Just wait on it.
Bear: Xander Schauffele — Throw out the record books. We’ve seen nothing like this pandemic before. But what we have seen? Xander continue to just be at the top of leaderboards. That ain’t changing this week. Guaranteeing a Top 5.
Sean Carney: Patrick Reed — Riding with Patrick Reed this week. Course history here is less than stellar, but didn’t put huge weight into that. Really liked what I saw on and around the greens from Reed last week. I think he’s a guy who has a chance to go out and win every time he plays. Just a hunch I’m riding this week, but just overall love Reed this week.
Jake Mulholland: Tyrell Hatton — Noone better than TBone this week. Coming off some good momentum after his API win. Pete Dye course with wind and small greens. I like his odds this week.
Jack Corrigan: Kevin Kisner — Hometown boy, you know he wants this tournament as much as anyone out there. His game seems to be in a fine enough spot, and he has a solid track record here. It is extremely tough to still judge who can contend and not, but I like KK’s odds this week.
