PGA DFS Coverage for the Wyndham Championship

The PGA Tour wraps up its regular season in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Wyndham Championship. It takes place at Sedgefield Country Club. This event has been around since 1938 when it was known as the Greater Greensboro Open. It is also known for being the first PGA tournament in the south to allow a black player to participate. The event is now known for being the last chance for players to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs which gives players a shot at $15 million dollar grand prize to the winner of the Tour Championship. The Top-125 players in the FedEx Cup standings after this event will participate next weekend at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.




The Field: Wyndham Championship

The 2021-2022 PGA Tour regular season ends this weekend and it is a last chance for a lot of players to get into the FedEx Cup Playoffs. There are 156 players in the field with Will Zalatoris leading the way. We will not see Tony Finau go for three wins in three weeks but can you really blame him for taking a break before the playoffs? The names you should keep your eye on are Webb Simpson, Lucas Glover, Kevin Tway, Nick Taylor, Chesson Hadley, Kramer Hickok, Rickie Fowler, Matt Wallace, and Austin Smotherman who are all within 10 spots of the Top-125. You also have players sitting right inside the mark who could fall out like Robert Streb, John Huh, Ryan Brehm, Tyler Duncan, Matthias Schwab, and Patton Kizzire. When I was looking through the list of guys on the bubble, I was surprised at who was in and who was out. This week will be difficult to handicap because it’s almost like a week before a major. You really don’t know which high-end players are just keeping loose before the playoffs or actually trying to win the event.


The Course: Sedgefield Country Club

Sedgefield Country Club is 7,131 yards and plays as a Par 70. The yardage is deceiving on this course because there are a lot of up and down hill situations. You really don’t have to be accurate off the tee on this track because of the length. Nine of the 18 holes will probably only require the players to hit a wedge into the greens which is an obvious advantage whether you're hitting from the fairway or the rough. That does mean though that once again I’ll be putting an emphasis on Strokes Gained: Approach especially hitting into these small greens. I’ll also take a closer look at birdie and scoring averages because you need to go low this weekend once again. Five of the last seven winners of this event have gone 20 under or below to win. We’ve got a course with an abundance of Par 4s with length ranging between 450-500 yards, eight to be exact. Strokes Gained: Putting will be added to the mix as the greens are known for their undulation and we need birdies this week.




The Weather: Greensboro, North Carolina

Unlike last weekend, it will be an eventful weekend when it comes to weather in Greensboro. It will start out extremely hot and humid on Thursday and Friday for these players. It will then cool off over the weekend as the storms roll into town on Friday night. They are calling for scattered showers throughout the weekend which could mean trouble for scheduling. The PGA Tour will do everything it can to make sure this tournament ends on Sunday evening.

The television coverage for the Wyndham Championship on Thursday and Friday will be exclusively on the Golf Network from 2-6pm ET. The Saturday and Sunday coverage will start on the Golf Network from 1-3pm ET before shifting to CBS for the afternoon broadcast from 3-6pm ET.
