With the new PGA Tour season in full swing, PGA Tour pros are heading down to Saint Simons Island in Georgia for the RSM Classic.

Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

RSM Classic Fantasy

Webb Simpson:
Webb Simpson hasn't teed it up on tour since the CJ Cup @ Summit in mid-October, but he did grab a solid T-14 there. His history at this event is what makes him an attractive pick here. He has finished in the top-three in two of his last three starts here, including a No. 2 finish in 2020 after losing in a playoff. He has been knocking on the door at this event for a while now and this could finally be the time he pulls it off. He comes into the event well-rested and presumably playing some good golf to start the year.

Corey Conners:
Corey Conners finished T-17 and T-40 in his two starts this season. However, he has been incredibly accurate off the tee, ranking 11th on tour there in driving accuracy and No. 9 in SG: Off-the-Tee and also ranks No. 8 in Greens in Regulation (GIR). On this shorter course, Conner's ball striking should prove paramount. And he's proved that in the past with a T-10 finish in this event last season.

Harris English:
Like Simpson, Harris hasn't played since the CJ Cup @ Summit, but he comes back to an event he made a solid run at last season. After struggling at this event in the past, Harris broke through with an impressive T-6 finish at the RSM Classic last season. Despite his early struggles this season, English still ranks No. 6 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Approach The Green. If he can use that to his advantage on this shorter course (by PGA standards), he's could make a similar run this season.
