Robert Streb will be eager to continue his dominance in the RSM Classic by winning the tournament for the third time. 
The American golfer clinched last year's trophy after winning in a playoff over his countryman Kevin Kisner giving him his second PGA Tour victory.
Streb also won the RSM Classic in 2014 when the tournament was still known as the McGladrey Classic at the Sea Island Golf Club.

The Kansas-based golfer then struggled to win trophies having had six other top-10 finishes including a playoff loss at the 2015 Greenbrier Classic. 
At the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, Streb fired a second round 63 to tie the best round in a major. 
Streb carded a two-over-par 72 during the third round, that pushed him back into a tie for fifth entering the final round and he finished the tournament tied for seventh.
The 34-year-old then ended his trophy drought at the 2020 RSM Classic and he will be hoping to become the first golfer to successfully defend the title.

“I don't have a good answer for you,” Streb, who is ranked 115th in the Official World Golf Rankings, said when he was asked about his good record at the RSM Classic.
“My finishes here are all over the lot, but I do like it here. The greens are always pure, and I feel like if you're playing good, you can do well.
“It was tough,” he said. “I felt like things were starting to get a little better and I wasn't quite getting the results, but I wasn't expecting this, either.”
He is noted as a user of the ten-finger grip, which is unusual on the PGA Tour.
