Twofer Tuesday: RSM Classic

Twofer Tuesday skips from the Gulf Coast over to the East Coast for the RSM Classic.

Defending champion Robert Streb

The boys are leaving Houston for Sea Island and the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort, a mere 7000-yard par-70.

Robert Streb is the defending champ, who picked up his second Tour victory last year at this event. In fact, BOTH of his wins have come at the RSM. I'm sure he's looking forward to teeing it up again!

Given that none of my tactics for choosing winners have actually produced one -- I guess I'll have to chalk my single Top5 pick this season to dumb luck -- I'm just guessing at this point. A shorter course gives shorter hitters a better chance to win, so let's pick two shorter hitters

  • Webb Simpson tends to score well here but he hasn't won. Well, perhaps he'll continue to post low scores and actually get a win this time. Even a Top10 will score well with me.
  • And Kevin Kisner is the all-time earnings leader at this event so why not pick him?

Yep, that's it. No complex explanations, no reason to think this week's approach is any better than any other week's has been. Let's see if either player is willing to be my hero this week!

GC's live coverage starts Thursday at noon ET. I have no expectations at this point and the pros say that's generally when they score well. Let's see if they're right. (I certainly haven't been.)
