The PGA Tour has its final tournament of the calendar year this week when the RSM Classic tees off at the Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simons Island, GA.

Tournament play begins on Thursday, November 18th, and concludes on Sunday, November 21st. Let’s take a look at the playing field for the rapidly approaching The RSM Classic event so you can place your bets against the PGA Tour odds.

PGA Tour Betting – The RSM Classic at St. Simons Island Preview

Overview

Robert Streb outlasted Kevin Kisner in a playoff last year to take home his second PGA Tour title, both happening in this tournament. Streb and Kisner finished with four-day totals of 19-under, which has been around the average score needed to win this tournament over the last five years. One fact to note, is the last three tournaments have been decided in a playoff.

The winner of the tournament receives 500 coveted FedEx Cup points and a share of the $7,200,000 purse. FedEx Cup points earned in this event are important with many of the top golfers not participating.

Sea Island Golf Club

The Plantation Course is a par-72 that measures approximately 7,060 yards in length and weaves through the area’s low-country marshlands. The property was redesigned in 2019 by tournament host Davis Love III and his brother Mark. 

Across the property is the Seaside course which looks just like a track you’d see across the pond. The traditional Scottish Links style was incorporated into the design and the property runs along the coast bring wind into play. Seaside plays as a par-70 that stretches 7,005 yards and in 1999 went through a complete redesign by famed golf course architect Tom Fazio.

The Field

There are a handful of players in the field that call St. Simons Island home. The past six winners of this event are all expected to tee it up on Thursday. Overall, the field is relatively weak which gives many of the players the last chance to pickup important points in the standings to position themselves heading into the new year.

Louis Oosthuizen is the only player ranked inside the top-10 teeing it up this week, but he is joined by names like Harris English, Scottie Scheffler, Jason Day, Adam Scott, Justin Rose, and Webb Simpson. This will be Scott’s first time seeing it up in this event.

The field boasts many of the recent Korn Ferry Tour graduates, including three-time winner Mito Pereira, Aaron Rai, and Chad Ramey, who made 40 of 43 cuts during the KFT’s super season.

Tournament Odds

The hottest name in golf during the wrap-around season is Scottie Scheffler, and he comes into the tournament as the betting favorite. Scheffler can be grabbed at +1000 and comes into the final week with back-to-back top-5 finishes.

Webb Simpson (+1200) is right behind Scheffler and has an excellent track record at this event. Simpson has a pair of playoff losses here, 2011 and 2019, so course history will play in his favor.

The players rounding out the top-5 are Cameron Smith (+1400), Oosthuizen (+1600), and Corey Conners (+2200)
