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 RotoQL.com, you will have an advantage over the ordinary fantasy golf player that is simply doing their own research for this week’s tournament.

The 2017 RSM Classic Tourney Preview

The 2017 RSM Classic is the last PGA Tour event of 2017. There are some small unofficial golf events played but none that will be found for fantasy golf players at any of the top fantasy golf sites. Played on two courses - Seaside and Plantation courses at Sea Island Golf Club, the field for the 2017 RSM Classic will be a weak field as many PGA Tour players have packed up their clubs and either headed home for the holidays, or are preparing for some smaller invitation only events that aren’t part of the PGA Tour schedule.
