Wyndham Championship Odds: Scrambling For FedExCup Points In Greensboro

Posted By FairwayJay on August 9, 2020 - Last Updated on August 11, 2020
Wyndham odds Webb Simpson Patrick Reed

The Wyndham Championship was moved back one week in the schedule during the reshuffling caused by the coronavirus crisis. Following a PGA Championship with record wagering, the Wyndham will still be an intriguing event with FedEx Cup points still up for grabs in the final event before the FedEx Cup playoffs begin next week at TPC Boston for the Northern Trust Open.

However, the Wyndham event will not involve most of the marquee names of golf, as most of them are taking the week off getting ready for the FedExCup playoffs. This week is more about players moving up the rankings, as for many players it’s the last chance to get into the Top 125 of the FedExCup Standings so that they can not only get into the playoffs but secure their tour card for 2021.  For many players, it’s a chance to get closer to the Top 30 which gets them not only into the last playoff event at East Lake but it also gets them into all the majors for 2021.

Top golfers in the Wyndham Championship

The Wyndham Championship will feature four of the Top 10 players in the FedExCup Standings – Webb Simpson (2), Sungjae Im (3), Patrick Reed (7) and Brendon Todd (9). Players that finish in the Top 10 earn an extra $500,000 through the $10 million Wyndham Rewards bonus.

Other top pros in the field chasing Top 10 FedExCup points finish include Abraham Ancer (15), who has missed the cut in two of three Wyndham appearances – including last year.

The field will also include World No. 6 Brooks Koepka off his strong effort at the PGA Championship where he was the two-time defending champion. Koepka held the top spot in the FedExCup entering last year’s playoffs but had fallen out of the Top 125 in July before moving up to No. 96 in the FedExCup standings prior to the PGA Championship. Brooks plays in the Wyndham Championship for the first time since 2015 when he finished tied for sixth. Also, Justin Rose is No. 16 in the world rankings but on the outside looking-in at the FedExCup playoffs – ranking No.130 into the PGA Championship where he figures to move up sitting tied for seventh in the final round.

Tommy Fleetwood is No. 13 in the World Golf Rankings and plays in the Wyndham for the first time. He will look to add FedExCup points, where he was No. 91 in the standings heading into the PGA Championship. Jordan Spieth plays in the Wyndham for the third tim,e having finished 78th last year and second on debut in 2013. He too is looking for a strong finish to add to his FedExCup ranking, which is No. 90.

Webb Simpson plays in this event annually and is the 2011 winner with seven Top 10 finishes including runner-up in both 2018 and 2019 –  plus a third place finish in 2017. Todd, meanwhile, has missed the cut in four-of-five Wyndham appearances.

Two-time Wyndham champion Brandt Snedeker (2018, 2007) shot a course record 59 when winning the 2018 event. He’s currently No. 92 in the FedExCup standings.

North Carolina native J.T. Poston won his first PGA Tour title last year at the Wyndham and did so without making a bogey the entire tournament. He became the fifth straight, first-time PGA Tour winner at the time.

Last years Top 15 finishers in the Wyndham who are returning for the 2020 event include:

  • J.T. Poston (1)
  • Webb Simpson (2)
  • Si Woo Kiim (5)
  • Brian Harman (T6)
  • Billy Horschel (T6)
  • Sungjae Im (T6)
  • Jason Kokrak (T6)
  • Rory Sabbatini (T6)
  • Brice Garnett (T6)
  • Paul Casey (T13)
  • Joaquin Niemann (T13)
  • Kyle Stanley (T13)
  • Patton Kizzire (T13)
  • Fabian Gomez (T13)

The Wyndham has blossomed from the longtime Greater Greensboro Open, which Sam Sneed won a record eight times. This year’s 81st event is played on the Donald Ross design that was extensively renovated prior to the 2008 tournament that began at Sedgefield. The signature undulating greens average approximately 6,000 square feet, which is near Tour average. But the difficulty is that the putting surfaces are raised and include many runoffs and collection areas – making scrambling a key stat. Rotating directions and tee shots with rerouting holes adds to the ambiance of Sedgefield.

The course features rolling terrain and scores are only suppressed if the wind picks up, which won’t be the case this week. That said, a 60-80% chance of rain is in the advance forecast with mid-80s temperatures. Scattered showers and thunderstorms could add to some uneven play or delays, but also softer conditions for scoring.

It takes plenty of birdies and low scoring to cash in at the Wyndham with the last four winners shooting 20 under par or better. Players chasing FedExCup points on the bubble will need to score under the first two days to make the cut.

Excellent putters, Poston and Brandt Snedeker won the last two events, but accurate drivers and strong ball strikers and iron players will do well this week at Sedgefield.
