2018 RSM Classic Fantasy Sleeper Report
The Fall Season on the PGA TOUR has a habit of throwing up all sorts of weird and wonderful surprises.
We’ve already seen Cameron Champ, surely one of the most exciting young talents to grace the Tour in a long time, pick up the first of what may well be many PGA TOUR titles.
At the completely opposite side of the golfing spectrum is Matt Kuchar, a veritable veteran these days but one with a youthful passion for the game.
And what a treat it was to see Kooch win the eighth PGA TOUR title of his career last week following a drought closing in on five years.
He largely demolished the Mayakoba track with an excellent display of ball-striking, and despite a late wobble on Sunday it was refreshing to seen old horse blitz a track and win what was nothing more than a birdie shootout.
It’s a slightly different affair in what is the final ‘regular’ event of the calendar year at the RSM Classic. Played across two courses, with the Seaside layout hosting three rounds and the Plantation one of the openers on rotation, this is a coastal test on what is something of a golfer’s paradise on St Simons Island.
Many pros have made this their home through the years, and two of them – Kevin Kisner and Chris Kirk – have won this event in recent times. It’s as good an angle as any to seek out local favourites this week.
The standout features this week is the likelihood of some fierce winds and some tiny Bermuda greens for the players to find. That said, the last three winning scores in the RSM Classic have been -21, -17 and -22, so it’s still a jolly fun way for the players teeing up to sign off for the year.
The likes of Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele are all off seeking fortune on the European Tour’s season finale in Dubai, and with others already in holiday mode there’s a pretty thin field meeting in Georgia. The top three in the betting are Webb Simpson, Cameron Champ and J.J. Spaun!
As such, finding sleepers to back isn’t easy, but here’s five who might just do some damage at the RSM Classic.
