"Coastal breezes are particularly prevalent on Seaside, where getting to grips with its fast putting surfaces and undulating fairways will be vital for any aspiring champion."

The final FedEx Cup tournament of 2019 takes place this week with the traditional end-of-season RSM Classic being played in south Georgia.

For the past five years, this event has been given the honour of bringing down the curtain on the official PGA Tour year.

And when the sun sets over Sea Island on Sunday evening, the PGA Tour will take a six-week break before reconvening in Hawaii during the early days of the New Year.

This week's tournament will be the 10th staged at Sea Island Resort, and the fifth to be held over two courses.

From 2010 thru 2014, when the event was called The McGladrey Classic, all 72 holes were played over the resort's Seaside Course.

But from 2015, when RSM became title sponsor and the tournament was moved from late October to its current slot in November, Sea Island's Plantation layout became part of the itinerary.

During the opening two days, golfers' will play one round at each course, before the Seaside takes charge over the weekend as sole venue for the final 36 holes.

Course History

World No 12 Webb Simpson is the highest-ranked player teeing-up on a course where he has twice posted podium finishes - although neither were victories.

Simpson has featured just once since the Tour Championship in late August, as he tied-for-seventh at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

The 34-year-old will be a member of America's Presidents Cup team next month and has finished second on three occasions since early June.

Kevin Kisner and defending champion Charles Howell have each tasted victory at Seaside, while also posting three other top-10 finishes.

And if conditions toughen-up, then Zach Johnson might come into his own, having finished seventh and eighth these past two years.

Current Form

Scottie Scheffler enjoyed another top-20 in Mexico, where Harris English collected his fourth top-six finish from five starts.

Billy Horschel, who was second in Georgia on his most recent visit here three years ago, has made it three top-10s from his last five outings.

Meanwhile, Brendon Todd will chase his third victory of November having just won the Mayakoba Classic which ended on Monday.

Seaside & Plantation

Seaside started life as a nine-hole course and has been in existence since 1929.

Low-lying, and with larger than average-sized greens, the course was given an upgrade by Tom Fazio 21 years ago when it joined forces with the nine holes of nearby Marshside.

Coastal breezes are particularly prevalent on Seaside, where getting to grips with its fast putting surfaces and undulating fairways will be vital for any aspiring champion.

Good course management, along with precision iron play, plus an ability to get up and down frequently from around the green, will determine the winner of this week's tournament in which 54 holes are contested over Seaside.

As for Plantation, this was also originally just nine holes and opened in the late 1920s, before Rees Jones was commissioned to make it 18.

Since last year's tournament, the Plantation layout has been given an additional multi-million dollar makeover by Davis Love and his brother Mark, with most of the changes taking place on the back nine.

Water is a huge threat on both layouts, with the surrounding marshland one of the most prominent features of Sea Island Resort.

Plantation is more parkland than Seaside, with both venues located close to the southern tip of St Simons Island.

Seaside has a distinct links feel, although its fairways are considerably more manicured than a typical British seaside course.

This popular tourist destination, close to the Atlantic Ocean, is located around 65 miles north of Georgia's state border with Florida.
