Twofer Tuesday: RSM Classic

Twofer Tuesday celebrates DJ's victory with a relaxing trip down to the RSM Classic.

Defending champion Tyler Duncan

This may feel a bit unusual for most of this week's participants -- going to the RSM Classic rather than the RBC Heritage. But both events have reputations as relaxing but challenging events and, having been hit by the double whammy of major fatigue and a lingering pandemic, the field will certainly be looking forward to this event.

The RSM will have a full 156-player field but daylight won't be as big a challenge because this event uses two courses before the cut. Defending champion Tyler Duncan will have his hands full though, as no winner has ever made a successful defense.

A number of players are resting from last week's Masters so there could be a better chance for a surprise winner this week. But I'm going with some horses for these courses.

  • Last year's runner-up was Webb Simpson, and we all know how well he's been playing this year. He's coming off a T10 at the Masters and he lost in a playoff here last year. No one's a lock in an event after a major but I like my chances with Webb.
  • My other pick is Zach Johnson. If I recall correctly, this is his stomping ground. And he had Top10s in 2017 and 2018. While Zach certainly isn't a sure thing these days, his familiarity with these courses won't hurt.

GC's coverage starts Thursday at 1pm ET. The field will be chilling out this week, but we should still see some good golf.
