The RSM Classic Tournament Preview

RSM Classic LogoThe end of the calendar year for the PGA Tour schedule brings The RSM Classic. Played at the beautiful Sea Island Resort in Sea Island, Georgia, The RSM Classic unfortunately draws a weaker field of golfers. Made up of defending champions, rookies, and others trying to hang on to their PGA Tour card, this field of 156 has a few big name golfers that you will know, but not too many. If you are relying on expert picks from sites like, you will have an advantage over the ordinary fantasy golf player that is simply doing their own research for this week’s tournament.
