STAR PREVIEW Thurs: RSM Classic

A decent result last week at the Houston Open with our pick, Scottie Scheffler, finishing second to Jason Kokrak. Let’s see if we can go one better this week.
It’s a two course format at the RSM classic in Georgia. Both courses are comparatively short at just over 7,000 yards, but at par 70 the Seaside Course is the sterner test, while the Plantation plays slightly easier as a par 72.

The courses are a ball strikers paradise and many golfers in the mould of Webb Simpson, Kevin Kisner and Brian Harman, tend to do well here year after year.

The RSM Classic
Sea Island Golf Club, Saint Simons Island, Georgia
Live on Sky Sports Golf and Sky Sports Main Event on Thursday from 5pm

Blue Horseshoe Loves:

Justin Rose – currently at ? with starsports.bet

Rose had a poor year last season and word is he’s been working very hard to get back to the top of the game. This is a course he’s played well at before and this fairly weak field gives him a great opportunity to start the new season strong. I think he’s a very nice price here.

Russell Henley – currently at ? with starsports.bet

Henley is always there or thereabouts these days. He was right in contention last Sunday at the Houston Open and this course will suit his excellent ball striking game again. Expect him to be squarely in the mix come the weekend.

Matthew Wallace – currently at ? with starsports.bet

Wallace got close to his maiden PGA Tour win a couple of times last season and I think he is trending towards another strong showing this year. When he is firing, his iron game is superb and at these odds I think he’s great each way value.

Kramer Hickok – currently at ? with starsports.bet

I was very impressed by Hickok’s tournament last week. He fell a little by the wayside on Sunday, but I think he’s a rising talent in the game in a rich vein of form and I like his price each way after a great performance at a very challenging course in Houston.
