What a weekend in St. Louis!  I mean come on, you had nothing but huge names trying to chase down Brooks Koepka on Sunday and Tiger was the one who really put a scare into him shooting a 64.  I got chills watching that performance especially when you got that trademark fist pump after a few of those birdie putts. Another fantastic season of major golf this season, you got a terrific weekend at Augusta with Patrick Reed coming out on top, Brooks Koepka wins his second straight U.S. Open, a real grinder gets rewarded with an Open Championship in Francesco Molinari and then seeing Tiger try to chase down Brooks in Sunday was spectacular.  I was really proud of the playbook overall this weekend just not enough guys in the Top 5 to take down a huge paid day. Now, it is onto Greensboro, North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship.

This field is just awful but it is the last event of the year to qualify for the FedEx Playoffs.  That means there will be a lot of players fighting for their right to play in the playoffs. I have put players in my playbook with that extra motivation, I mean why wouldn’t you want a guy on the ropes fighting for his life.  

The Wyndham Championship is held at Sedgefield Country Club and stretches out only 7,127 yards and plays as a Par 70.  The yardage is deceiving on this course because there are a lot of uphill and downhill holes. You really don’t have to be accurate off the tee on this track because of the length.  9 of the 18 holes will probably only require the players to hit a wedge into the greens and it is easier to hit short iron from the rough with accuracy than with the long irons. Players hit these small greens in regulation (GIR) at a rate of 73 percent since 2008 which is just off the charts for a PGA Tour golf course.  We want to target short iron GIR from on and off the fairway, we also want to look at proximity with short irons as well. That’s because these greens ungulate and that means you want as many short putts as possible over the course of your round at Sedgefield.

GOOD LUCK!
