Ludvig Aberg was able to maintain his one stroke lead after another eventful day at the 2023 RSM Classic. Check here the RSM Classic Final Round Betting Preview!
The Swedish sensation will tee off in today’s final group alongside Eric Cole and Mackenzie Hughes. Aberg will be looking to add a first PGA title to sit alongside the European Masters he won just a few months ago.
Aberg and Cole set to battle it out for much more than just the RSM Classic
In what has been another fantastic year of PGA action, it’s fitting that the final round of the season will feature two of the Tour’s best rookies.
At 35, it’s odd to call Eric Cole a rookie but the Korn Ferry graduate has had a brilliant year, posting six top tens and finishing 43rd in the FedEx Cup standings. His best moment of the year came when he finished second at the 2023 Honda Classic, only missing out on the title in a playoff.
He was in incredible form yesterday with his third round 61 including a stretch of ten birdies in just fourteen holes. He will need more of the same if he is to overhaul Aberg at the top of the leaderboard today.
Still so new to professional golf, Aberg looks destined for the very top of the game.
Already a winner in Europe, Aberg has two top tens from his thirteen PGA starts and was unlucky not to have won his first PGA title when tasting defeat in the Sanderson Farms via a playoff.
Having led from the second round, Aberg has yet to drop a shot through his first 54 holes and was able to match Cole’s 61 yesterday.
With the two set to battle it out across another eighteen holes, we could be set for another dramatic day with the victor likely to be crowned as the 2023 Rookie of the Year.
Despite the threat of low scores, it looks like only a handful of players can win this year’s RSM Classic.
Starting as the favorite is Ludvig Aberg. Through the first 54 holes, Aberg has been incredible, posting twenty birdies and not dropping a single stroke. Showing remarkable composure for someone still so new to the professional game, this could be his first title of many.
If looking to take Aberg on, the play has to be Eric Cole. Starting just a stroke behind his Swedish counterpart, he can be backed at a pretty decent price.
Cole has been in incredible form, posting three top five finishes in his last four starts. A lot of Cole’s success has come down to his driving and approach play. He ranks 9th for fairways hit in regulation and he will need to keep his ball on the short grass today if he is to win a first PGA title.
Mackenzie Hughes will tee off alongside Aberg and Cole two strokes off the lead.
Placed third in the betting, he won this event back in 2016. Hughes is clearly comfortable around Sea Island and his third round 60, has put him right in the mix to lift a third career PGA title.
