Consistent Huh Tipped To Shine In RSM Classic
- 15 Nov 2016
A stellar field will line up for the RSM Classic, which is this week's star event on the PGA Tour, and with every winner since its inception in 2010 having recorded double figured under par scores to lift the title then there's sure to be some low scores hit at Sea Island Golf Club and Kevin Kisner will be aiming to be the first to retain this title, but there will be a plethora of stars aiming to land what is a valuable prize on the tour.

The Market Leaders
The abovementioned Kisner recorded a fantastic -22 to beat Kevin Chappell by six shots in the 2015 RSM Classic, and the American star will be hoping a return the course can see him bag more silverware, but he is as big 40/1 with Betfred to retain his crown, and he is certainly not challenging for favouritism at the head of a wide open betting market.
That honour of ante-post favourite goes to Chris Kirk, who incidentally won the 2013 RSM Classic, and the classy American is the 18/1 jolly with Paddy Power, who will be paying seven places in the each-way market, while Matt Kuchar is next in the betting at 20/1 with Coral, and the solid Brandt Snedeker is hovering around the 25/1 with BetVictor, and if the latter can sparkle on the greens then is more than capable of putting up a bold show here.
Kevin Chappell will be aiming to go one better than last year and he is a best-priced 28/1 with Betfair Sportsbook and if he can replicate his 2015 display then certainly has to come into calculations, while Jim Furyk (33/1) is never a man to under-estimate and along with 35/1 shot Lucas Glover, who finished third in the Shriners Hospital For Children Open, can both land a blow in an event that is devilishly difficult to call.
Huh Can Continue Form And Star In Georgia
American John Huh is a golfer that is growing in stature and has been very consistent over the last few months and having tied 10th in the aformentioned Shriners Open he then was a creditable tied 28th on -10 in the OHL Classic last weekend, so has to be given a second look here and could be a shade of value for those punters looking for a big-priced challenger for this event.
He has already tasted victory once on the PGA Tour and the 26-year-old is ranked 42nd in the Fedex Cup rankings, so that is significantly better his world ranking of 221, so it just emphasises the fact that he is having a terrific season, and at 66/1 with Sky Bet bookmakers he looks a tad over-priced, while those looking for more places in the each-way market could be wise to snap up Paddy Power's 60/1 for him to be placed in the top seven of this event.
Robert Streb (80/1) is another that has shone in this event before and he was a fine winner of the RSM Classic two years ago, so he could be another huge-priced challenger here, while Luke List tied for seventh place with Chris Kirk last weekend and is an eye-catching 50/1 with Betfred for this prize which is sure to be hotly contested, but we are siding with an improving Huh, who can record his second win on the Tour in terrific fashion.
