Three Team New England PGA Tour players had a good week at the RSM Classic in Sea Island, GA last week. Jon Curran and Scott Stallings finished in the top 10. Curran posted back to back 66’s in the third and fourth rounds to finish -13/269 alone in 4th. Scott Stallings posted a -10/272 total to finish T-9th. Tour rookie Rob Oppenheim, competing in just his second PGA Tour event, made the cut to finish in the middle of the field at -6/276 which included an opening round 65. Oppenheim earned his PGA Tour playing privileges after finishing in the Top 50 players on the Web.Com Tour at the end of their 2014-’15 season.
Rob’s other event was the Sanderson Farms Championship a few weeks ago in which he made the cut. Let’s see. Two tournaments, two cuts and two checks. Not a bad start. Not bad at all.
I took a look to see how Curran, Stallings, Oppenheim and Keegan Bradley, (missed the RSM), stacked up when it comes to their scoring averages through the RSM Classic. It turns out all four have scoring averages better than the PGA Tour average of 71.456. Scott Stallings is low with 70.728. Jon Curran is 70.888 while Rob Oppenheim is 70.930 and Keegan Bradley sits at 71.032.
The RSM Classic ends the Fall Series of the PGA Tour. The players take a break until January 14-17 when the 2016 Sony Open gets underway following the Hyundai Tournament of Champions January 7-10.
We congratulate Jon Curran and Scott Stallings for their Top 10 finishes at the RSM Classic and Rob Oppenheim going the distance in his first two starts on the PGA Tour.
Happy Thanksgiving guys. Have a relaxing break. See you next year.
