Harbour Town Golf Links has hosted the Heritage since 1969, so there is plenty of course form to go on, creating strong trends. A par-71, it measures 7,100 yards but is no pushover. Small greens demand accuracy and a demon short game.
Top-60 on tour for scoring average
The field may be stronger because of the change in schedule but the cream still rises to the top at Harbour Town. 11 of the last 14 winners ranked inside the top-60 on tour for scoring average. A good measure of all-round ability.
Top-60 on tour for proximity to the hole
