If you need more golf after the 2012 Masters has concluded, it’s time to tune into the RBC Heritage Classic’s final two rounds Saturday and Sunday to get your latest fix.

While many of the biggest stars are off this week, many hardcore PGA pros are ready to steal the show in what has become an afterthought over the past few years.

All of the following stars will have solid showings this weekend, and one of them will walk away from his tournament as the champion.

Which Star Will Win?

Jim Furyk

It would take an amazing Sunday and a meltdown at the top of the leaderboard, but veteran Jim Furyk has the patience and talent to capitalize on a relatively inexperienced field.

With all of the pressure on the top half of the leaderboard heading into the final day, it’s the perfect time for the former tournament winner to play his game and hit a great round.

If you don’t know who Zach Johnson is, give it another year or so. If this young star can figure out his short and middle game just a bit better, he could be a repeat major winner. He is already dominating at the RBC.

Johnson is hitting the ball extraordinarily hard as always, but his improvements in the other facets of the game are what have put him in an ideal position heading into the final holes of the tournament.

Colt Knost

The leader coming into this weekend was a relative unknown, but with stellar play like few had seen in the first two days of the RBC, Colt Knost has made a serious name for himself.

If Knost can just maintain his current pace and not worry about what the golfers around him are doing, he will be in the driver’s seat heading into Sunday’s final holes. Whether the pressure will break him or not has yet to be seen.
