RSM Classic: PGA Tour Predictions, Odds 11/17/22

RSM Classic
November 17, 2022 7:00 am EDT

This week, the PGA Tour travels to Georgia for the RSM Classic.

Before I discuss my favorite golf bet for this week’s PGA Tour event let’s take a quick look at this tournament’s unique format and the key player statistics that I think are the most important to a player’s success at this week’s RSM Classic.

The first two rounds of the RSM Classic will have the entire field of competitors play two different golf courses. The two courses the field will play in the opening two rounds are the Plantation Course and the Seaside Course at the Sea Island Golf Resort in Sea Island, Georgia.

After the completion of two rounds, the traditional cut will occur and the top 65 players and ties will move on to the weekend. The final two rounds of competitive golf will be played exclusively on the Seaside Course.

The key player statistics that I am focusing on this week are strokes gained ball striking, GIR (greens in regulation), and strokes gained putting.

Now let’s shift our attention to my favorite golf bet for this week’s RSM Classic!

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Justin Rose +400

Last week, Justin Rose fired a third round 66 at the Cadence Bank Houston Open en route to an eventual ninth place finish.

Due to the fact that Justin Rose performed so well at last week’s PGA Tour event, I decided to take a hard look at Rose’s statistics relative to the field.

After four rounds of competitive play at the Cadence Bank Houtson Open, relative to the field, Justin Rose ranked second in GIR (greens in regulation-75%) and seventh in strokes gained putting (6.035).

It should also be noted that Justin Rose finished 12th at the 2021 RSM Classic.
