THE OVERVIEW

Albany Golf Club, The Bahamas – The course at Albany is a part-links style, part-desert style, Ernie Els design that will play as a 7,302 yard, par 72 this week. With five par 5’s, five par 3’s, and eight par 4’s, it is a bit unconventional and offers a variety of strategies when selecting players.

The layout is defined by its length, undulation, and the natural water and sand dunes that encroach throughout. However, the scores will be low this week with the aggregate winning total presumably around the 20 under range. When the wind picks up, it can cause problems here, so when picking players keep an eye on the weather and tee times.

The small field this week can be disadvantageous when placing wagers due to the lessened values. So, many golf gamblers may be content to just sit back and wait for the Hawaii swing to kick off.

Where One-N-Done leagues are concerned, dueling strategies can be weighed. Is it beneficial to take a favorite in the reduced field where the odds of winning are slightly increased? Or, since the favorites this week are also likely to be attractive picks at big purse events later in the season, is it wiser to go a little further down the list and take a name that probably won’t be missed until 2019?

2019 RSM Classic

THE OVERVIEW

Sea Island Golf Club, Seaside Course – The Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club is a par-70 links-style track that plays fairly short at only 7,005 yards. The fairways are relatively wide but have numerous bunkers in play off the tee, and due to the shortened length, many players will be clubbing down off the tee. The greens here will be tricky to read this week and the wind may play a factor if it picks up. However, scores should get really low. Key stats that I will be focusing on are SG: Approach and Birdie or Better Percentage.

Keep in mind that a number of PGA Tour Pros live in the area and train here. For example, J.T. Poston is a member at Sea Island. Other names that live and train nearby are:  Stewart Cink, Harris English, Brian Harman, Zach Johnson, Kevin Kisner, Patton Kizzire, Davis Love III, Trey Mullinax, Seamus Power, Hudson Swafford, and Nick Watney.
