The PGA Tour event in Georgia attracts many stars for the reward of the Masters 2021 attendance and coincidental prime location this season.

RSM Classic started today 19/11, with a bonus fund of 6.6 million USD, bringing together 18 golfers in the top 50 in the world – equal to the sum of the two years ago. The competitive index of RSM Classic reached 348 – nearly double the annual level since the 2010 inception year. In the last 10 years, this is only the second time the award has recognized the presence of a major champion – Shane Lowry with The Open Championship 2019.

Masters – the Augusta National exclusive major – usually plays in April. And on a regular schedule, next entry tickets will be given to the PGA Tour champions for the next year – from the RBC Heritage at the Hilton Head to the Houston Open, which equates to post-Masters points first to post-Masters. The RSM Classic is out of this framework.

But this year’s epidemic caused Masters to move to November, just lowering the curtain over the weekend. RSM Classic, thus, unintentionally took over the role of the RBC Heritage.

If you don’t win the PGA Tour within the allotted time frame, the golfer has another door to attend the 85th Masters. It’s a late ticket – in the top 50 in the world up to the Houston Open. The time for golfers to reach this goal is only five months. Therefore, players near the bottom or outside the top 50 will take advantage of the RSM Classic to consolidate their positions. This number includes Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Kevin Streelman.

Moreover, painting RSM Classic is also convenient for golfers who have just attended Masters, as Sea Island is only 3.5 hours by car from Augusta National. “Moving there is easy. And it also fits with the general schedule, especially the European players. This year, we don’t have many tournaments, so if the opportunity arises, we can grab it now to maintain our form. and confidence, “said Tommy Fleetwood of the crucial coincidence of the RSM Classic.

Henrik Stenson agrees with this view. “The year was shit, not playing golf for five months. I myself was hungry so attending the RSM Classic was a good choice on the way home in Orlando,” said the Swedish golfer. Golf Channel.

Fleetwood’s fellow Matt Wallace went to Sea Island to improve her position. “Usually I play three or four tournaments in a row. Before Masters, I also play. Now extra fighting is a must to get back into the top 50 in the world,” the 53rd-ranked OWGR golfer explains about his first time at the RSM Classic.

In the same period of previous years, the European golf world was busy due to the European Tour at the final stage. Since 2015, RSM Classic has taken place in parallel with the lowering event of the DP World Tour Championship which cannot be ignored for European stars. But this year is exceptional.

Covid-19 caused this arena to cut nearly a third of its schedule and will end the season within the next month, with three stages in South Africa and two in Dubai, including the closing season from December 10 to 13. RSM Classic is not in that important frame.

Therefore, European golers can most comfortably play with the RSM Classic because they can play and not lose their place in the main arena. Not only that, they stayed in the US to play 1-2 more tournaments rather than risking infection on the way to Europe and cumbersome procedures due to the order to limit the movement and at least 10 days of self-isolation right after. on arrival.

Over the past two days, three RSM Classic positive nCoV players include Bill Haas, Kramer Hickok and Henrik Norlander. All three have left the tournament and are on their own quarantine. This is the second time the PGA Tour has recorded three members infected in the same week since its reopening in June. Since then, this arena has detected 18 positive members.
