After a historic Masters, the young guns get their shot at glory when the 2020 RSM Classic tees off Thursday at Sea Island Resort in southeast Georgia. Webb Simpson (10-1) is the the favorite in the latest golf odds (for more news and updates on this week's 2020 RSM Classic, head over to SportsLine).
Before setting your Fantasy golf lineups or betting this tournament, you NEED to see data scientist Rick Gehman's power rankings.
With his expansive database of golf statistics, course data and betting odds, Gehman creates advanced models and back-tests them constantly. These models have produced 11 outright winners in the past year -- including 30-1 Webb Simpson at the 2020 RBC Heritage -- plus a $10,000 DraftKings win at The Masters.
At last week's Masters, Gehman was locked in on Dustin Johnson, listing him as his second choice and noting that he "looked like he's ready to make a run at the green jacket." The result? Johnson ran away with the tournament, shooting the lowest score in event history at 20 under to win by five strokes!
Two other golfers in his top six had top-five finishes, with Justin Thomas finishing fourth and Rory McIlroy tying for fifth. Anyone who followed Gehman's advice cashed in!
The previous week at the Houston Open, Gehman listed Dustin Johnson and Tyrrell Hatton as his top two players, and both finished in the top seven. Johnson battled for the lead throughout the final round before settling for a tie for second at 11 under.
Now, Gehman has ranked his top 30 players for the 2020 RSM Classic, and he is betting on Webb Simpson to keep rolling. The sixth-ranked player in the world has seven consecutive top-20 finishes, including a tie for 10th at the Masters last week. He has finished in the top three at Sea Island three times, and he could finally break through there this weekend!
On the other hand, Gehman is fading Tommy Fleetwood, who is one of the top-tier players in the 2020 RSM Classic field and among the favorites. He hung around and finished in the top 20 last week at the Masters, but his game has just been too erratic and he doesn't crack Gehman's top five.
Instead, Gehman is promoting a 50-1 longshot who has finished in the top 11 in two of his last three starts and shot two rounds of 67 or lower at the Masters. This veteran international player has been in solid form and offers tremendous upside. Things could be lining up for his second career PGA Tour victory! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before betting this tournament or entering any Fantasy golf lineups.
