Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | PGA RSM Classic 2017

Hello Fantasy Golfers and Daily Fantasy Golfers, welcome to this weeks preview of the RSM Classic 2017. What a terrible field we have assembled this week. I mean, Brian Harman is an $11,000 player. The odds of me playing a lot this week is slim to none. In fact, I kinda hate the whole fall season.

This year, the former Mcgladrey Classic will be played on two courses. The 18-hole ” Seaside” course at the Sea Island Golf Club, 7,005 yards of golf from the championship tees for a par of 70 and the ‘Plantation Course’, Par 72 of just over 7000 yards. Both courses are played on fast Bermuda grass.They are true ocean tracks nestled at the southern tip of the island, both courses feature many of the characteristics you’d expect from a links course – including majestic ocean vistas, tidal creeks, dunes and salt marshes. Also, after the Friday cut, the tournament moves exclusively to the Seaside course.

The key to success at these courses? Accuracy. Distance off the tee has been a useless skill over the years. Some golfers have been able to overcome inaccuracy off the tee to post high finishes, but 70% of the players inside the top 10, consistently hit it straight for the week. It’s hard to predict who will have a hot putter, so we’ll concentrate on players with good form, high GIR, solid short iron play and above average putters on tour. We like the short game this week. 

Another thing to think about is the connection to the Heritage, another short seaside course. Players in this field that have played well in both spots include: Tim Clark, Mark Wilson, Brendon de Jonge, Kevin Kisner, Matt Kuchar, Aaron Baddeley, Carl Pettersson, Harris English and Scott Brown. If there are some first timers at this course, take a look if they played the Heritage. It’s a positive if they played well there.
