In the regular season finale, the PGA Tour returns to Greensboro, NC at Sedgefield Country Club for this year’s Wyndham Championship. Last chance for guys on the bubble to climb into the Top 125 and make it into the field for next week’s first FedEx Cup Playoff event. Last year’s tournament ended with a 6-man playoff before eventual & defending champion Kevin Kisner took home the victory. Kisner returns to the field this year at 34-1. Top contenders by listed odds are Sungjae Im (+1500), Shane Lowry (+1700), Will Zalatoris (+1700), Billy Horschel (+1900) and Si Woo Kim (+2200).
Si Woo Kim (+2200)
– Not going to be a popular outright pick among the so- called “sharps” this week, but he has the best value for the guys at the top of the listed odds this week. Coming off 2 consecutive Top 15 finishes at St. Andrews and Detroit Golf Club, Kim just needs to stay consistent for all 4 days and he will undoubtedly be in the hunt on Sunday. In last years regular season finale at this tournament, he carded a bogey-free 64 on Sunday to join the 6 man playoff before falling to Kevin Kisner. Si Woo Kim also won this event back in 2016 at 21 years old.
Joohyung Kim (+3200)
– Finishing out this season on special temporary membership, Kim is ineligible for the FedEx Cup Playoffs without a victory. What a story book finish this could be. One of the few guys in this weeks field with nothing to lose, the 20 year old should come out aggressive and could jump to an early lead. Plus, the kid can flat out play. Too good of value to pass up on.
Cameron Champ (+7500)
– He has always struggled with consistency, but when it’s on, it’s REALLY on. In need of a special week in hopes of sliding into the FedEx Cup Playoffs, he’s another guy that’s going to have to come out aggressive. Leading the Tour in driving distance.. if he can figure out the wedge game and the putter, 75-1 could cash.
Will Zalatoris (+350)
– I had the same reasoning for taking Patrick Cantlay Top 5 last week at Rocket Mortgage. It didn’t happen, but it still paid off for the Top 5. I’m not going to be left without a Willy Z ticket to see him run away with a 5 stroke victory. Top 5 is a nice security blanket. Just not enough value on him outright this week.
Davis Riley (+850)
– He already has 4 Top 5 finishes in his rookie season, and if it wasn’t for the brilliance of Cam Young’s rookie campaign he would probably be the front runner for Rookie of the Year. Not a weak field this week, but not the strongest field either. Plenty of opportunity for Davis to add to his tally of Top 5 finishes.
Tyrell Hatton (+320)
– Aside from an over-par Saturday in his last appearance at St. Andrews that pushed him outside of the Top 10, his Open Championship performance indicates he’s ready to create some magic in the post-season. One final tune up this week… I’ll be surprised to see him outside the Top 10.
Taylor Pendrith (+500)
– Despite Finau being bogey-free through 54 holes last week, Pendrith was neck and neck with the world’s hottest golfer before his even-par Sunday round. After the round, Pendrith wasn’t thrilled with his performance but said he still feels confident in his game heading into the final week of the regular season. Should pick up where he left off…. if he does, 5-1 is too high. Take it.
Cameron Champ (+750)
Welcome back Mr. Champ. He’s fired a 75 in each of his last two tournaments, still managing to secure a Top 20 finish. Some firepower & getting rid of that one awful round this week and Champ will be in the Top 10 no problem. Security blanket for outright as well.
Denny McCarthy (+175)
– With 5 Top 10 finishes, and another 5 finishes inside the Top 20, this is one of my safer picks on the card this week. If his approach game is on, he’s sure to tally some birdies as he’s definitely one of the best putters on tour. If his approach game is struggling, he usually manages to use the putter to stay in contention.
K.H. Lee (+320)
– Max Homa was one bogey away from hitting our max play last week. This week K.H. Lee gets the nod for a 3 unit play to finish inside the Top 20. He can go LOW. Two good rounds should secure this.
