2020 RSM Classic Preview

Facebooktwittermail

The PGA Tour remains in Georgia for another week as The RSM Classic tees off from the Sea Island Golf Club on Friday.

Excitement was at fever-pitch last week at Augusta as Dustin Johnson finally secured his first green jacket, while Aussie Cam Smith also turned in one of the performances of the ages to finish tied for second.  

Several Europeans are backing up this week at The RSM, meaning there is a huge amount of value to be found in the market.

After DJ won as the favourite last week, you can find our best RSM Classic bets below.

2020 RSM Classic Best Bet

Webb Simpson – $11.00

I don’t often tip the favourite, but it’s hard to argue with Webb Simpson.

He’s lost a playoff in back-to-back years now to Charles Howell III and Tyler Duncan, but more importantly, has made the cut on all seven appearances at Sea Island.

Coming off yet another T10 at Augusta last week – his seventh consecutive finish inside the Top 20 – I’m keen to have something on the Tour veteran.

2020 RSM Classic Best Value

Doc Redman – $67.00

I think Doc Redman could be a little over the odds at 67-1 playing this tournament for the second time.

The American finished T23 at this event last season and probably would have wound up inside the top ten if a final round 73 didn’t get in the way.

Sea Island doesn’t call for much – just some accuracy off the tee and some consistent putting on slow greens.

Redman ranks 29th in strokes gained: off-the-tee and 79th in strokes gained: putting, so there’s a bit to like about his numbers heading into this contest.

The Bermuda Championship is also the ideal form line heading into this contest, a tournament Redman finished tied for fourth.

He’s now finished top five in three of his last seven events and is well-deserving of his first win on Tour.

Patton Kizzire – $126

Statistically Kizzire’s numbers don’t jump out at you, but it’s worth noting he has made the cut in each of his last four tournaments – which includes a T11 a fortnight ago at the Houston Open.

The 35-year-old finished 15th at this event two seasons ago and is set to tackle Sea Island for the sixth year in a row.

That experience has to count for something, so I’m happy to have a little something on Patton Kizzire at triple figures.
