Georgia's Sea Island Golf Club hosts the RSM Classic in the PGA Tour's final event of 2022. 

Last year, a man who is no longer eligible to play on the PGA Tour, Talor Gooch, finished on 22 under-par to beat Canadian Mackenzie Hughes by three shots and claim his first title on the Tour. With the American now signed to LIV Golf, someone else will be crowned champion after the fourth round on Sunday, with several strong contenders. 

Hughes returns in an effort to go one better this year and replicate his success in the same tournament six years ago. Back then, he held his nerve in a thrilling five-man playoff to claim his first PGA Tour title. He has good recent form on his side, too, having won the Sanderson Farms Championship last month. 

Robert Streb is another player to look out for. He has won the tournament twice, most recently only two years ago. Meanwhile, another former winner in the field is Kevin Kisner. The American claimed his first of four PGA Tour victories to date in the 2015 RSM Classic. He almost won it again in 2020, but Streb edged him out in a playoff. 

Tyler Duncan, who won in 2019, also plays, as does 2017 winner Austin Cook. The man who won in between, Charles Howell III, is another player who now competes with LIV Golf and so is ineligible for the tournament. Meanwhile, Webb Simpson has a solid record in the tournament, including two runner-up finishes, most recently in 2019.

Tony Finau had been expected to compete this week after completing his third PGA Tour win in less than four months with a four-shot victory over Tyson Alexander in last week's Cadence Bank Houston Open. However, he won't have the chance to achieve back-to-back-wins for the second time in 2022 as he's withdrawn through injury.

Players are competing for a purse of $8.1m, an increase of $900,000 on last year. The winner will earn $1.458m. 

Below is a full breakdown of the prize money and field for the RSM Classic.
