Odds To Win: RSM Classic

The PGA Tour travels from Mexico up to the coast of Georgia for the RSM Classic – the final event of its 2017-18 wrap around schedule.

A pair of 2017 winners, Brian Harman (Wells Fargo) and Kevin Kisner (DEAN & DELUCA), are the favorites at Sea Island Golf Club. Both veteran players are listed with 18-1 odds.

Webb Simpson, the 2012 U.S. Open winner, is given odds of 20-1 to capture his first PGA Tour title since 2013. Top-10 machine Matt Kuchar is at 22-1, while Charles Howell III and Bill Haas are both offered at 25-1.

At 28-1 is the threesome of Brandt Snedeker, Chesson Hadley, and Ollie Schniederjans. No one else in the field has better than 30-1 odds.

Zach Johnson may be worth a wager. The two-time major champion is listed at 33-1, and while he’s coming off a mediocre T23 at the OHL Classic, he closed with the day’s low round of 64. Additionally, Johnson is a resident of St. Simons and lists Sea Island as his home course.

Another good payout to consider is Si Woo Kim. The 2017 PLAYERS Champion finished T3 in Mexico and is listed at 40-1 this week.

Defending champion Mackenzie Hughes has done little since his maiden victory last year (one top 10), but the young Canadian is a proven performer on this track and at 100-1 may be someone to consider as a short-money flyer.
