An endless season on the PGA Tour ends in Georgia with The RSM Classic, with the tail end of the FedExCup Fall coming to an end this week. From next Monday, new scenarios will open up with regulation changes and an American circuit that will return to being based on the calendar year.
Defending the title is Canadian Adam Svensson, who last year won with a total of 263 shots (-19); while Francesco Molinari also returns to play in the United States.
Francesco Molinari, results
Quality field on the Sea Island Golf Club (Georgia) despite the grand finale of the DP World Tour taking place on the other side of the world, which will crown the champion of the Race to Dubai.
Two former Major winners will take to the field, more precisely from the Open Championship, namely the American Brian Harman and the Italian Molinari who returns to play in America for the first time since June. If the American can be considered one of this week's favorites, Chicco is still looking for that feeling that has been missing for far too long, with laps that show us a solid and performing Molinari with those shots that made him become a "laser Frankie ” alternating with others with an almost inexplicable sequence of errors that turn into bogey or worse, galore.
Continuing to breathe the smell of the Ryder Cup, Ludvig Aberg will also be the protagonist, the phenomenal Swede born in 1999 who revealed himself to the golfing world this summer and is looking for his first success on the PGA Tour.
Among those to keep an eye on this seventh are two who finished in front to everyone in THE PLAYERS Championship: Si Woo Kim and Webb Simpson. The Korean and the American come to Georgia with great ambitions and the desire to occupy the highest areas of the leaderboard.
The Americans Eric Cole and Justin Suh are also going through a good period of form; with the former one step away from the Rookie of the Year award and fresh from a 2nd, a 3rd and a 4th place in recent months, while the latter just achieved the best result of his career two weeks ago in Mexico, finishing fourth in equal merit.
If we talk about golfers who are playing well, we cannot fail to mention the name of Camilo Villegas, the Colombian who returned to winning nine years later on the last weekend in Bermuda.
