2019 The RSM Classic Betting
The last official PGA Tour event for the 2019 calendar year is the RSM Classic in late November. Most players take at least a couple of months off to rest up for the new season so not many top players will be in the field for this event, but some players have used this tournament as a springboard for good seasons, including Kevin Kisner who won this event in 2015. The RSM Classic is played in Sea Island, Georgia at the Sea Island Golf Club. The tournament was started in 2010 and was known as the McGladrey Classic. Sponsorship of the tournament was changed in 2015 and the event was renamed The RSM Classic. Tour pros Davis Love III and Zach Johnson call Sea Island home and they played in the inaugural event in 2010.
Catch all of the action at the RSM Classic from Thursday, November 21 through Sunday, November 24.
2019 The RSM Classic at a Glance
Course: Sea Island Resort, Sea Island, GA
Course Length: 7,005 yards
Defending Champion: Charles Howell III
Tournament Record: -22 (Kevin Kisner 2015)
This event is played at the Sea Island Resort on two courses, the Seaside Course which is a par 70 and the Plantation Course, which is a par 71. Both courses are similar in difficulty, so there is not a big advantage to players one way or another. Traditionally, the first and third rounds are played at Seaside, while the second and fourth rounds are played on the Plantation Course.
The two courses are located on the southern tip of St. Simons Island. The Seaside Course is a links course that was based on St. Andrews, while the Plantation Course features marsh and forest. Seaside was designed by Harry S. Colt and Charles Alison and updated by Tom Fazio in 1999. It is on Golf Digest’s list of “Top 100 Courses in the United States.” The Plantation Course features tidal creeks and lakes but it also has large fairways and inviting greens.

List of The RSM Classic Winners
||SCORE TO PAR
||Charles Howell III
This event began in 2010, so there have only been nine previous winners. The scores were really similar for the first five years and then Kisner went really low in 2015 and shot 22-under par. The winning score came back to normal in 2016 when Hughes shot 17-under par. Except for the 2015 tournament when Kisner blitzed the field to win by six-shots and in 2017 when Cook won by four shots, the events have been very close. All of the other six years the margin of victory was just a single shot and four times a playoff has been needed to decide the winner.
Most Career Wins at The RSM Classic
There has yet to be a repeat winner in The RSM Classic. It had been all Americans winning this event until 2016 when Canadian Mackenzie Hughes took the title, winning in a playoff.
Best Winning Tournament Scores at The RSM Classic
Kisner dominated the field in 2015, as he shot 22-under par to win by six shots. His winning score was definitely an aberration in this tournament, as only one other player has broken 20-under par, as Cook shot 21-under in 2017.
