Sedgefield Country Club
Sedgefield Country Club is your prototypical positional golf course, which rewards players for hitting fairways and penalizes any wayward tee shots with thick rough and tricky angles from tight tree lines. With a heavy concentration of par-4s under 450 yards, players who are dialed in with their wedges and short irons have repeatedly found success at this event. Moreover, the most skilled long-term putters have proven to separate from the field on these tricky Donald Ross greens.
In terms of course history, Sungjae Im, Webb Simpson, Kevin Na, Russell Henley, and Patrick Reed highlight the list of players who have repeatedly played well here, suggesting a strong correlation from players with proven success on short, positional courses with a long term pedigree of elite putting on Bermuda greens.
Traits And Recent Notable Facts
A similar story to what we just saw at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Championship, Sedgefield CC provides an easy layout that should produce a winning score near -20 and reward the player who catches the hottest putter. Compared to other PGA TOUR courses, Sedgefield CC has ranked as the easiest course for SG: APP every year since 2015. Elite iron players should unload on these pins for birdie opportunities. But average iron players can still manage spike approach weeks.
With angular, more narrow fairways than TOUR average and tricky Bermuda rough, there is a large emphasis on keeping the ball in the fairway. That has drastically mitigated any advantage from longer hitters, with forced layups throughout. Sedgefield CC has routinely ranked top 10 in scoring difficulty from outside the fairway. Plodders who can remain in control of their ball off the tee should have a leg up on the field.

How To Bet The Wyndham Championship
The most basic way of betting on the Wyndham Championship is picking the outright winner. However, choosing one player from the Wyndham Championship odds board can be challenging. Jim Herman, the 2020 winner, had 600-1 pre-tournament odds. Once the field is announced, consider factors like if a player has a history of playing at Sedgefield Country Club and course conditions.
Expect to see a strong Wyndham Championship props menu as the event draws closer. Instead of betting on the overall winner, you could pick the same player to turn in a top-10 finish. The odds will be shorter as a result of the golfer being able to finish eighth, ninth or 10th for the bet to pay out.
