Best bets for RSM Classic

November 16, 2021 09:30 PM
Jason Kokrak shot a 5-under 65 on Sunday to win the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open by two strokes over Scottie Scheffler and Kevin Tway. Kokrak, at a price of 50-1, notched his second victory of 2021 and his third in just a little over a calendar year and now has his highest career ranking at No. 22 OWGR.
The PGA Tour finishes off 2021 with the RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island, Ga. Scheffler (14-1), tipped in this column last week, had to settle for a runner-up finish after being the 54-hole leader and is still seeking his first PGA Tour victory. Webb Simpson (16-1) is a regular in this event and has finished runner-up twice (2011, 2019). Cameron Smith (18-1) never really got going last week in Houston and settled for a T-15. Louis Oosthuizen (25-1) had three runners-up in the middle of 2021 as he still seeks his first triumph on American soil. Corey Conners (25-1) had two top-5 and five top-10 finishes in 2021.
Harris English (30-1), a Sea Island resident, had his career season in 2021 and not only won for the first time in eight seasons but won twice (Sentry ToC, Travelers) for good measure. Russell Henley (30-1) is also part of a large Georgia Bulldogs contingent that annually participates in this tournament. Joaquin Niemann (35-1) also has his final chance to win in 2021 after three runner-up finishes. Kevin Kisner (40-1) won here in 2015 and lost in a playoff in this event last year. Also priced at 40-1 are Adam Scott, Talor Gooch and Alex Noren.
The RSM Classic debuted in October 2010 as the McGladrey Classic and has been a fixture on the PGA Tour’s Fall Series since. The tournament is organized by the Davis Love Foundation as DL3 is a resident pro of the Sea Island Golf Club, which has hosted the event every year. In 2015, the event began being played on both Sea Island Golf Club courses — Seaside and Plantation. As a full-field event, the usual perks for winning are on the line, including the winner’s share of a $7.2 million purse, spots in the Masters, PGA and Players and a two-year PGA Tour exemption.
