Which golfer among Scheffler, Simpson, and Smith deserves the longest look to win the RSM Classic?
Scottie Scheffler missed the cut in his last, the Shriners Children’s Open in early October. He hasn’t played since then. Scheffler could step it up to win this. But he didn’t play at last year’s RSM Classic.
Scheffler did finish tied fifth at the 2019 RSM Classic. So if you believe he gets his sticks working this week, he’s worth a look. But if you believe that Scheffler’s worth a look, then also take a glance at Webb Simpson. Simpson lost to Tyler Duncan in a playoff at the 2019 RSM Classic. Last year, Simpson underperformed with a tied thirty-seventh.
The best play among the three might be Cameron Smith. The +1800 choice hasn’t played at the RSM the past two years. He’s in decent form, though, finishing ninth at The CJ Cup in mid-October.
Name the golfer with odds of +2200 to +3500 who offers the fairest odds to win the RSM Classic?
Connors shot a -15 at the 2020 RSM Classic. Louis missed the cut. So although Oosthuizen offers lower odds, Connors is a better play. The best play in this odds range is Kevin Kisner. After shooting a -19, Kisner lost to Rob Streb in a playoff last year. Kisner missed the cut at the Shriners. So he must step it up. Since he hasn’t teed off since mid-October, it’s likely he’s been preparing for this tournament. Kisner has a strong chance.
What golfer at odds of +4000 to +6600 can take the RSM Classic?
Adam Scott is always worth a look. At the current odds, he deserves a long look to win the RSM Classic. Although Scott failed to finish better than thirty-fifth at the Shriners Children’s Open, he shot a 67-67-69 to close out the tournament. Scott is hitting the ball well. He’s also one of the few name golfers in this. Scott has a big shot to win the tournament.
What golfers at +7000 or higher odds can take the RSM Classic?
Robert Streb, the defending champion, offers +7500. Jason Day, who shot a -14 last year, is at +9000. Backing Streb means you’re hoping lightning strikes twice. It could happen. More likely, Day shoots better than Streb this week, though
Day hasn’t performed great. One thing he did do at The CJ Cup, his last tournament played, is shoot his best round on Sunday. Day delivered a 65 after stumbling on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with a 73-70-72. The 65 was good enough for a sixty-fourth place finish. If Day gets it together this week over a course he played well at last year, he can win at massive overlay odds.
