The PGA Tour makes the short trip from Augusta National Golf Club to Sea Island Resort on the southeast coast of Georgia for this week’s RSM Classic. A surprisingly strong field is expected to be in attendance following Dustin Johnson’s commanding victory at the Masters. Below, we look at the 2020 RSM Classic betting odds, and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.
2020 RSM Classic betting picks – Favorite
Tyrrell Hatton (+1800)
Hatton shares the second-best odds to win the RSM Classic. He’s the only one of the top-5 betting favorites this week to miss the cut at the Masters, with Webb Simpson (+1000) tying for 10th and Sungjae Im (+1800) finishing as the co-runner-up at Augusta National.
The weekend off should play to Hatton’s favor. Simpson, Im and others may have difficulty transitioning from the tough terrain of Augusta National to the (generally) much easier Sea Island Resort. Hatton had a victory and three other top-10 finishes in his six international events preceding the Masters and should quickly get back on track.
2020 RSM Classic betting picks – Contender
MacKenzie Hughes (+6600)
Hughes wasn’t invited to the 2020 Masters but will look to secure an invitation to the 2021 edition when returning to the site of his lone PGA Tour victory to date.
The Canadian won here in 2016 and has been playing some of his best golf since then in 2020. He has seven top 10s in 21 events this year, including a T-7 at the Vivint Houston Open the week before the Masters. He has two missed cuts and a 65th-place finish here in the last three years but will look to combine his experience with his very strong recent form.
2020 RSM Classic betting picks – Long shot
Brian Gay (+12500)
The winner of the Bermuda Championship, Gay withdrew from the ensuing Houston Open and was too late to qualify for the 2020 Masters. He’ll make his third-career appearance at Augusta in April.
This is purely a value play for Gay following his recent victory. He has had two weeks to recover, so he should well rested and won’t face the usual pressures of trying to win back-to-back events. He missed the cut in this event last year, but he was third in 2017 and fourth in 2013.
