After an elongated schedule of 54 events, the 2022/23 PGA TOUR season finally comes to a close this week.
St. Simons Island in Georgia hosts The RSM Classic once more and the stakes are high.
For some, the aim is to get inside the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings and secure fully exempt status for the 2024 campaign which starts in Hawaii in January.
Others are hoping to finish in positions 51st to 60th (the top 50 places are already locked up) which guarantees entry into the first two Signature Events of 2024, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and The Genesis Invitational.
For several in the field, this is a hometown event with St. Simons Islands acting as a hotspot for PGA TOUR golfers.
Those with local connections have performed strongly since the tournament first came onto the schedule in 2010.
This is the 14th edition and 11 of the 13 champions were American golfers, the other two Canadian.
Ryder Cup star Ludvig Aberg will hope to end that streak by becoming the first European to hoist the silverware.
The Swede heads the betting at +1400.
|Champion and winning score

The Seaside Course is a par 70 measuring 7,005 yards from the tips
The Plantation Course is a par 72 which can be stretched to 7,060 yards
One round is played on each layout before The Seaside hosts the weekend action
Both courses feature Bermuda greens and are generous off-the-tee
Temps are around 70 degrees, winds could approach 20mph on Thursday/Friday
Once again in a Fall Series event where field quality is modest, Aberg finds himself at the top of the odds sheet. It’s deserved. The Swede, who made his Ryder Cup debut just over a month ago, has a win, a second, a fourth, and four other top 15s in his last seven worldwide starts. He played this event for the only time in 2021 and missed the cut after a pair of 70s.
Henley’s current form is excellent too with his last four finishes 13-8-6-2. However, they all came back in August so it’s hard to know how sharp he’ll be. In contrast to Aberg, he’s played in eight of these and connected three top 10s from 2014 to 2016 (4-6-10). The American was 22nd on his last visit in 2021 when opening with a 62.
The Open champion has been enjoying his time with the Claret Jug and this is his first start since the Ryder Cup where he went 2-2-0. Harman has plenty of good form in this event with a top 10 in 2013, fourth in 2017, and tied second last year when closing 64-65 on the weekend.
Max Homa’s victory at the DP World Tour’s Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa last week was a reminder that class tells at this time of year.
That angle works particularly well when applied to top players who haven’t allowed rust to gather.
Homa was one of the very few Americans to tee it up before the Ryder Cup when placing seventh in the Fortinet Championship.
And he followed that by emerging as the top US points scorer in their rather miserable defeat to the Europeans in Rome.
For Homa in South Africa last week, read Ludvig Aberg here in Georgia this week.
The Swede has been even more active and since his Ryder Cup debut, he’s pegged it up at Fall Series events in Mississippi, Nevada, and Mexico.
He made the top 10 in all three, losing a playoff in last month’s Sanderson Farms Championship.
Despite his limited knowledge of this week’s courses, they’re not hard to learn and Aberg has a golden chance to land his first PGA TOUR win.
Back him to do so at +1400 with BetMGM.
Leaning into current form again, it could be a smart move to side with Justin Suh to get the better of Si Woo Kim in a 72-hole match with bet365.
Kim is the clear favorite but there are holes in his case.
For starters, the Korean has played just once since August and that was a missed cut at the Shriners Children’s Open in Las Vegas.
And despite a good record in coastal events, he’s missed his last three cuts in this tournament.
The highly-touted Suh has found a groove in the Fall Series and followed a 10th place at the ZOZO Championship in Japan with a fourth last time in the World Wide Technology Championship in Mexico.
Last year’s Korn Ferry Tour Player of the Year ranked 1st for Putting Average in the former and 1st for Greens In Regulation in the latter.
Take Suh to win their match at +100 with bet365.
Ben Griffin is one of the St. Simons Island locals and once shot a 59 in a casual round at The Plantation Course.
The American was runner-up at the Sanderson Farms last month and is 2-for-2 in November after finishing 23rd in Mexico and 37th in Bermuda last week.
In surroundings he knows well, Griffin can improve upon his 29th place here last year and crack the top 20 at +300 with bet365.
