The RSM Classic Preview: Simpson an Easy Favorite
The RSM Classic Preview: Simpson an Easy Favorite

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

The PGA Tour heads back to the U.S. this week as the fall season concludes. After this week, we get the closest thing to a real break that there is in this sport. The pros on the PGA Tour won't go into complete hibernation, however, as there are some unofficial events over the next month and a half, as well as the Presidents Cup, but as for official events, we are clear until January. 

As for this week, we're in Georgia at the Seaside Course, where this event has been held since its inception. Like last week's event, there isn't much firepower in the field, but there are a couple bigger names near the top of the odds list.          

This week: The RSM Classic – Seaside Course, Sea Island, Ga.

Last Year: Charles Howell III shot a final-round 62 on his way to a playoff victory over Patrick Rodgers.  

FAVORITES

Webb Simpson (9-1)

Simpson is one of a few golfers in this field who is accomplished at the PGA Tour level as well as still near his prime, which is why he's the favorite. Simpson has just one start this fall, but it resulted in a top-10 at the Shriners in October. His track record at this event is solid as well, with three top-10s in seven starts, including a T3 last year.          

Billy Horschel (14-1)  

That's right, just one golfer with single-digit odds this week. Horschel
