Tony Finau was looking to make it two in a row after winning last weekend's Houston Open and was the overwhelming betting favorite to win the RSM Classic when books opened.

However, Finau was forced to withdraw from this weekend's tournament due to an unspecified injury. As a result, there is no runaway favorite with the shortest odds to win coming at +1,600 for Brian Harman.

Favorites to win the 2022 RSM Classic

Brian Harman (+1,600)

With Finau out of the field, Harman is one of the few competitors who can be found in the OWGR Top 50, coming in at 26th. The 35-year-old hasn't won on tour since 2017.

While Harman didn't play in last weekend's Houston Open, he did finish alone in second at Mayakoba the week prior, losing by four strokes to Russell Henley. In his two other entries since the season change, Harman finished T23 and T15, respectively.

Tom Hoge (+1,800)

Hoge got his first PGA Tour win last February at Pebble Beach and had been playing some of his best golf this fall before missing the cut at Mayakoba two weeks ago. In four tournaments prior to that, he finished T12, T4, T9, and T13, respectively.

Jason Day (+2,000)

Day is among the shortlist of former champions in this weekend's field. Day's a 12-time PGA Tour winner but hasn't claimed a title since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship. He has been busy this fall, entering five tournaments since mid-September. He missed his first cut but has finished T21 or better in the four others.

Notable longshots for the 2022 RSM Classic

Sepp Straka (+9,000)

For someone listed among the Top 30, these are pretty long odds in a relatively thin field. It's true, after losing in a playoff at Sanderson Farms Championship in early October, Straka hasn't looked his best and is coming off two straight missed cuts.

Still, the Austrian is a streaky player, as evidenced by six straight missed cuts over the summer before he finished very strong in his final three events, including a T7 at the Tour Championship. He's also missed several cuts at the RSM Classic in his career, so that is likely playing into this long number. 

Davis Love III (+50,000)

You want to talk about a longshot, enter Love. He's actually the tournament's host and helped re-work the Plantation Course at Sea Island with his brother Mark. The 58-year-old has 21 career PGA Tour victories but hasn't won an event since the 2015 Wyndham Open. Before that, he hadn't claimed victory since 2008. So, the odds are stacked against the veteran but in a thin field, he could put together a decent showing.
