In an effort to make this user friendly. If you have any opinions on this week MCI please post in this thread. I will monitor all the plays and maybe even post the results if I haven't lost interest.

Good luck.

Davis Love has made a habit of winning this week after Masters event. So I might start there. Justin Leonard is also a good player here. Back more with more picks.

THE EVENT
The Heritage is traditionally held the week after the US Masters.A very strong field has gathered for this prestigious event, held at the idyllic seaside links course at Hilton Head Island.Ernie Els and Davis Love III will be keen to make amends after letting another major pass them by when in contention in last week's US Masters.Last year's event was taken out by Davis Love III, who could comfortably hang his hat on a wonderful career from his 5 wins in this event alone!Love beat Woody Austin in a dramatic playoff, after Austin earlier missed a putt that would have captured the title.
THE COURSE
The Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina has played host to this event since its inaugural year in 1969.It is a genuine links setup, which has the smallest greens of the entire US Tour.The back nine provides a far sterner test than the front nine, as when the wind blows, the Bermuda greens dry out and become quite treacherous.The narrow fairways and tough greens demand accuracy off the tee, crisp ball hitting to the small greens and the ability to get out of trouble from the rough which inevitably everyone will find at some point.The par-4 18th hole features a lighthouse in the background, and is a very stern finishing hole that often provides drama at the finish.
OTHER POINTS
* The winners of this event in 2000 and 2001 were both playing in this event for the first time.This casts doubt on the theory that it is important to have played the track before to take out this title.
* Davis Love III has won here no less than 5 times and he continued his strong start to 2004 with another good performance at Augusta last week.
* There's no substitute for class at Hilton Head so keep with the Tours' proven winners.The twenty-three Heritage champions have racked up a staggering 356 US Tour victories between them including 65 Majors and the winners' roll-call also includes Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Hale Irwin, Johnny Miller and Nick Faldo.The other key element to picking a winner here is picking out those who played well at the Masters without being too mentally battered in a tight finish.
PAST WINNERS
2003 - Davis Love III, 2002 - Justin Leonard, 2001 - Jose Coceres, 2000 - Stewart Cink, 1999 - Glen Day, 1998 - Davis Love III, 1997 - Nick Price, 1996 - Loren Roberts, 1995 - Bob Tway, 1994 - Hale Irwin, 1993 - David Edwards, 1992 - Davis Love III, 1991 - Davis Love III

TOUR Insider: Veteran savvy makes difference at Harbour Town By Dave Shedloski
PGATOUR.COM Senior Correspondent
E-Mail To A Friend!


A cure for the Masters hangover: Take one refreshing seaside venue, warm breezes, a short but taxing golf course, small, flat and relatively receptive greens, and a resort perfect for the family. Stir gently.

This week's MCI Heritage in Hilton Head, S.C., the tournament that traditionally follows the Masters Tournament, is the perfect southern elixir to soothe a golfer's soul after a difficult and nerve-racking week at the year's first major championship. The MCI Heritage goes down as easy as sweet tea -- without lemon.


Davis Love III is the defending champion at the MCI Heritage.(AP)
It's a short drive from Augusta National Golf Club to Harbour Town Golf Links but there's a huge change in playing conditions as the weary Masters participants (there are 16 who made the cut in Augusta, Ga.) take a break -- as well as a break from the ordinary. Harbour Town, designed by Pete and Alice Dye with an assist from Jack Nicklaus, is a cerebral test, relatively short (6,927 yards), and demands accuracy without Augusta's penal properties.

What plays well at Harbour Town -- just ask defending champion Davis Love III, who has won five of them and has placed in the top 10 on five other occasions -- is precision, imagination, élan, cagey wiles, a clear head, and patience.

It is not a place for strict modern-day power golf, the kind the youngsters play. Not that a player of a more recent vintage can't acclimate his game to the challenge, but TI's selections tend to lean significantly toward an older demographic.

The TOUR Insider's top five selections for the MCI Heritage:

• Davis Love III : No explanation necessary, TI thinks. Another win gives him six plaid jackets, and ties him for second all-time in victories in one tournament, joining Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead, Alex Ross and Harry Vardon. (Snead also is first with eight Chrysler Classic of Greensboro titles.) Love was one of six men last year -- five at least 30 years old -- who shot all four rounds in the 60s.

• Chris Riley: One of the PGA TOUR's best putters who hasn't missed a cut at Harbour Town, and who was among the group tied for third one shot out of last year's playoff. At 30, he is the youngest of the picks, yet old enough to add to the over-30 group's victory total for 2004, which numbers 11.

• Jeff Maggert: Among the leaders in greens in regulation, Maggert, usually one of the game's better drivers, is making just his seventh start at Hilton Head, where he finished in the top 15 three times.

• Joe Durant: Among those in the field, the three-time TOUR winner is first in GIR and fifth in driving accuracy, a terrific combination for Harbour Town's narrow playing corridors and small greens. Durant doesn't sport a great record at Hilton Head, but he should, and may start this year.

• Nick Price: Has finished first, third, fifth, sixth and seventh in his 17 appearances, with his victory coming in 1997. Price hasn't missed the cut there since 1990, and is coming off a solid, if not spectacular, showing at Augusta National. He's a great ball-striker. Any questions?

Hensby 66-1
Fredrik Jakobsen 50-1
Stew Cink 40-1

I dont think it was right that Pete Dye had the trees trimmed couple years ago, do we really need to see 15 guys 274 and under again? I want to see some tourneys when the guys win in the 280's. Im playing the above 3 for grocery dollars, I hate this tournament. John Daly and his RV went to Texas, John has made me a ton, and I will be patient. John Daly will win the Shell Open. I only like horse for course. Next one after that will be Colonial, I hope Annika plays again. She will break 145 again.

Like the following outrights. As always will also buy interactives during rounds 1 and 2.

In order of preference

Jacobson (40-1)- Really like the way this guy is playing. Superb putter and is now putting other parts of the game together. Only a matter of time before he breaks through with a win (for non golf afficionado's this is Frederik Jacobson not Peter Jacobsen pronounced differently)

Campbell (19-1) Think some of the shorter prices will have Masters letdown. Dont see that the case with this very talented player

Austin (66-1)- Reaching a little here but has played fairly well so far.

The big play now is Jacobson

Austin very competitive in last years event. I will follow your play here Aly. Austin is a complete nut but if he gets hot, he is a competitive guy.

Nick Price at 4 for a bunch
Alex Cejka at 3 for a little

I would take Gamez as well but interactives don't have him yet.

Tought I would pose a question for the group: Will David Duval comeback this year and will he contend for a W this season and will he ever win another Major?

Duval will be back in a few weeks I believe. I am not sure if he will contend this year but I think he will win another major. On the surface last year looks like Ian Baker Finch, but in reality it was some severe injuries.

Added Slocums and more Campbells today. Ernie still overvalued, creating value elsewhere

I'm staying away from Ernie as the disappointment of last Sunday may catch up to him this weekend. I kind of fancy Huston since I like his position and he has 3 T10s here so he obviously likes the place, got him for $2/share yesterday.
