2022 Wyndham Championship Betting Preview

2022 Wyndham Championship Betting Preview

In the final PGA Tour event before the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, Sedgefield Country Club will play host to the Wyndham Championship. Located near Greensboro, North Carolina, Sedgefield has been a regular Tour stop since 2008. It is a Donald Ross-designed classical course with a storied history that was built during golf’s “Golden Age”.

The recently updated and preserved Sedgefield course provides a strategic challenge that is rarely found on Tour. It is a course where finding the contoured fairways carries real worth. While scoring has continued to be low over the years, the narrow, tree-lined fairways along with strategic routing and bunkering, and elevated tricky green complexes ensure that Sedgefield will continue to be a fair test of golf.

Similar to last week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, this shorter course does feature an above-average number of wedges with the goal of getting the ball as close to the hole on approach. Dissimilar to last week, however, bombers off the tee do not have that much of an advantage, and many of them do not even bother to show up for this event.

With many of the world’s best resting to prepare for the three-week FedEx Cup Playoffs on their own, we will see another field of mostly mid- to lower-tier players. Those not firmly inside the top 125 will be highly motivated this week. And those who are firmly in next week’s FedEx St. Jude field will be fighting for position.

Will Zalatoris and Billy Horschel are the only top-20 players in the Official World Golf Rankings in the field. Other notable names include Shane Lowry, Corey Conners, Sungjae Im, Tyrrell Hatton, and Russell Henley. With 156 golfers playing this week, the field will be cut to the top 65 and ties after Friday’s round.
