2018 RSM Classic Sleeper Picks

RSM Classic Sleeper PicksThe PGA Tour gets back to the US for the final PGA Tour event of the 2018 calendar year – The RSM Classic. One of the more unique tournaments because it is played on two different courses – The Sea Island Course and the Plantation Course it makes picking RSM Classic Sleeper Picks a little more challenging.

The RSM Classic has been on the PGA Tour schedule since 2010 but only started playing on two courses in 2015. Making sleeper picks (as well as picking favorites to win the RSM Classic) can be a bit of a challenge since one bad round on the Plantation course and the week is a loss.

Expert Sleeper Picks for the RSM Classic Tournament

RSM Classic Golf Course

Sea Island Resort

Plantation Course

As mentioned, the RSM Classic is played on two courses but players only hit the Plantation course once this week so you want to focus on how past results are on the Sea Island course which is a short Par 70 - 7005 yarder which makes it a golf course suited to short iron specialists. Driving off the tee needs some accuracy with sandy waste areas for some of the rough and although not impossible to play out of it may be a learning curve for some. Because the Sea Island course is a Par 70, there are 12 Par Fours, and only two Par fives, focus some attention on Par 4 scoring as a key stat when picking DFS golfers.

Because Sea Island is along the coast there is a constant breeze which occasionally kicks up a bit. You’ll want to look at good ball strikers this week when picking your sleepers for lineups as it requires guys slicing through the wind to stay accurate. Some other stats to look at are:

Other Key Stats:

Overall putting average


Greens in Regulation

Birdie Average

Fantasy Tip: Look to see who played well last week at the Mayakoba Classic. They are similar layouts in courses and guys that played well last week generally have a good showing at the RSM Classic too.

2018 RSM Classic Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

C.T. Pan - Pan has a great history at the RSM Classic with a T6 and a T13 is his two appearances. Has started off well for this fall PGA Tour season and finished off last week’s Mayakoba Classic strong with a T16 finish shooting a stellar – 5 on the final Sunday. He’s firing on all cylinders right now and in a week filed like this Pan has a good shot at winning the RSM Classic let alone finishing strong. Pan was a rookie a couple of years ago that many predicted would be one of the young stars of the PGA Tour so this may be the year that he takes a step forward and realizes his potential. It’s unfortunate that his hot streak will come to an end now for fantasy golf players as the RSM Classic is the last official tournament of 2018 and there’s no guarantee that he stays hot in the new year so take him this week as a sleeper pick for the RSM Classic and see how it pays off.
