Looking ahead to the Wyndham Championship for DFS Purposes

Course: Sedgefield Country Club (Greensboro, NC)

Yardage: 7,127 – Par 70

Purse : $6 M

Field: 156 Players

2014 Camillo Villegas
2015 Davis Love III
2016 Si-Woo Kim
2017 Henrik Stenson

What a Sunday at the PGA Championship. Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that the presence of Tiger Woods at major championships enhances the excitement threefold. The Tiger effect was in full-force on Sunday as he captivated the entire sports world. Despite missing every fairway on the front nine, Tiger mixed some incredible shots with some world-class scrambling on his way to a three-under 32. He matched his front nine with a 32 on the back for a six-under 64. It was vintage Tiger Woods. Flag hunting with his irons, walking putts in from 15-20 feet, and controlling his wedges to perfection. There was only one problem on Sunday for Tiger…Brooks Koepka.

Hey I’ll be honest, I was with 99% of the audience, I did not want Koepka to win. I would’ve rather seen anyone else at the top of the leaderboard pull it off. It’s nothing against Koepka, he seems like a good guy, there’s nothing about him that’s unlikeable, and he plays an absolutely incredible game of golf. Koepka showed no fear smashing driver down nearly every hole 330 yards center-cut, then smoking his irons or wedges to 10 feet or closer, and easily dropping the putts that he had to make. Koepka becomes the fifth player in golf history to win the PGA Championship and U.S. Open in the same year. With his third major and second of the year, Koepka puts his legacy beside some of the greatest to ever play the game, and he’s still only 28.

With the major season behind us, the Wyndham Championship bridges the gap from the majors to the FedEx Cup playoffs. Most of the big names will be taking the week off ahead of the playoffs making this the final “weak field” that we have this season. At next week’s tournament “ The Northern Trust”, the Top 125 players in FedEx Cup points will be in the field, so for the fringe players like Jhonattan Vegas, Seamus Power, Chad Campbell, Tyron Van Aswegen, Nick Taylor, Johnson Wagner, and even 2012 champion Sergio Garcia, they’re all fighting to get enough FedEx Cup points to make it into next week’s event. From there the Top 100 play the Dell Technologies Open, then the Top 70 will move onto the BMW Championship, and finally the last 30 standing will play in the Tour Championship at East Lake. Alongside the fringe 125ers will be Webb Simpson, Hideki Matsuyama, Henrik Stenson, Brandt Snedeker, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Daniel Berger, Shane Lowry, Joaquin Niemann, Billy Horschel, Ryan Moore, Si-Woo Kim, Steve Stricker, Jason Dufner, and Julian Suri. So it’s not a completely dead field, but an interesting collection of players who will be attempting to assure their spot in the playoffs next week.

Sedgefield Country Club has been the site of the Wyndham Championship since 2008. The Greensboro, North Carolina course is a par 70 golf course that measures 7,127 yards. With past winning scores usually reaching the low 20s under par, Sedgefield is one of the easiest courses on Tour. As per usual with the easier tracks, you’ll need to stack your lineup with players who can get birdies in bunches (birdie or better %), The main challenge at Sedgefield CC is keeping the ball in a good playable position. Players need to find the correct side of the fairway so they can attack the flag from the proper angle. Finding fairways is important, but I like the good drive percentage statistic which factors in whether or not players are giving themselves a good angle into the green. They don’t necessarily have to hit the fairway for it to count as a good drive.

Last year Henrik Stenson won this event with a score of 22-under par, and the year before Si-Woo Kim won with a score of 21-under. Going low is the only way to win this week, so target players who hit a lot of greens (GIR) and excel in strokes gained: putting. Of course with all Par 70 courses on Tour, competitors will be playing an extra four to eight par 4s this week, so find good par 4 scorers when searching through the field. Lastly, when looking for sleepers, take a look at the field and the FedEx Cup rankings. Look at who needs to finish high in order to make it to next week, and pick a player or two who you think can rise to the occasion and jump into that Top 125 as a sleeper pick. The stakes will be raised each week from here on. With major season over, a new type of pressure comes into play with the road to the FedEx Cup Championship starting on Thursday. Some players seasons will end after this week, while others are poised to make a run all the way to the Tour Championship.
