The Masters was nothing short of spectacular and I couldn’t be happier to see Dustin Johnson wearing a green jacket. This week, we head three hours south of Augusta for The RSM Classic. The good news is that plenty of Masters competitors will hit the road from Augusta to Sea Island for The RSM Classic, which only means we will have a full field. Anyway, let’s get to it – The RSM Classic DFS Course Preview for DraftKings and FanDuel.
One thing to consider is that this event is played on two courses. Plantation is a par 72 course and Seaside is a par 70. Between Thursday and Friday, each golfer will be playing each course one time. In other words, 3 rounds will be played at Seaside no matter what. Moving forward – This week we will have a full field of 152 players, including defending champion Tyler Duncan. Tyler will need to defend his title with the likes of Justin Rose, Brandt Snedeker, and Henrik Stenson. In other news, we will have Shotlink Data for this tournament as it’s been confirmed via Shotlink’s site that they will be out for this event. So let’s get ready for some showdown content.
Sea Island Resort (Seaside) is a par 70, 7,000-yard course played on Bermuda Grass. The course has two par 5’s measuring less than 570 yards and has a birdie success rate of 24-52% with a very small percentage of 4% eagles. This course isn’t overly difficult as the most difficult holes are 3, 4, and 14 with less than 19% of bogeys and more than 65% success rate with pars.
Fairways are quite wide with very few trees and driving distance is not the key here. Rather, we will be looking for golfers that are precise with their driving accuracy. With that being said, putting well here is crucial since there’s not much worry with distance. The rough will be about 2″ and we’ll have 47 sand bunkers to deal with on top of 13 water holes in play.
