After last week’s tough test at the US PGA, the Wyndham Championship is this week’s easier PGA Tour event. It takes place at the Sedgefield Country Club where the average winning score for the last four years has been either –21 or –22.
At just over 7,000 Yards, playing the par-70 Sedgefield Country Club will be a joy for the type of shorter-hitters that had no chance in last week’s first major of the season. Indeed, the list of winners of the Wyndham Championship is littered with accurate types rather than bombers.
Brooks Koepka isn’t a name I was expecting to see in this week’s field but he’s vying for favouritism in the type of event he normally doesn’t care about. 11/1 will tempt some, but he finished disappointingly on Sunday and hasn’t played here for four years.
If you’re playing anyone from the head of the market this week, it must be Webb Simpson, as the winner of the 2011 Wyndham Championship has also posted five top-6 finishes in the last six years. A dual winner already this season, he will surely go close after a respectable 37th in last week’s major. He found that test too long but loves it here.
Paul Casey (2nd), Justin Rose (9th), Patrick Reed (13th) and Tommy Fleetwood (29th) all played some good golf at times last week, but none strike me as the type of players that will be completely engaged for this less important tournament. Rose and Fleetwood don’t normally play here, while Casey boasts a third a few years ago but also isn’t a regular. Reed did win here in 2012 but hasn’t finished in the top-20 since.
Abraham Ancer is the type of player that should enjoy Sedgefield Country Club, but his record here is poor. Brendon Todd could enjoy this easier test, while Jordan Spieth may not have to hit as many drivers and could avoid some of the wayward shots that have been ruining his scorecards.
Si Woo Kim edges out Webb Simpson as this week’s Wyndham Championship tip, as he’s four-times Simpson’s price in places. The winner here in 2016 also finished fifth last year and caught the eye when finishing 13th last week. He often plays well at shorter courses where the emphasis is on iron play and short game, and he looks fair value at around 40/1 this week.
