Venue and prize fund
Sedgefield CC, Greensboro, NC • Purse: $5,600,000

The final event before the FedExCup playoffs will unfold at the Wyndham Championship from 18th of August. The event played annually in Greensboro, North Carolina got its current name in 2007 when Wyndham Hotels & Resorts took over as title sponsor.

This year’s tournament will have a total purse of US$5.6 million of which the winner will take home a little over $1million and 500 FedExCup points. The points look to be much more valuable now – considering the importance of moving up the rankings so close to the play-offs.

The Championship will be played at the Sedgefield Country Club (Ross) which measures 7, 127 yards and has a par-score of 70. The course which was designed by Donald Ross opened in 1925 and was used for the inaugural Greater Greensboro Open way back in 1938. There was a 31-year hiatus after 1965 and it was only in 2007 after the restorations that the PGA Tour’s annual Greensboro stop returned to its roots.

Coming to the course, the restoration in 2007 was accomplished to lengthen the course and in 2012 the greens were changed to Champion Bermuda. The 12th Hole which measures 235 yards is the longest par-3 of the course and challenges the players with its undulating two-tiered green.

The field for this year’s Championship is stronger than ever and is headlined by Jim Furyk who will be making his first start since that historic 58 at the Travelers Championship. Giving him company will be Rickie Fowler who is on a red hot streak this year.

In 19 starts so far, Fowler has secured seven top-10s, ten to-25s and made the cut in 14 tournaments. Patrick Reed, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Danny Lee will join Fowler in jetting off from Rio after participating in the Olympics. The action will see 10 of the top 30 teeing off this week.

Wesley Bryan will look to make the most of his chance before the playoffs while Jon Rahm, who’s finishing the season on special temporary status, will have similar thoughts. Lee McCoy will be joining the field on a sponsor exemption. Talking of favourites, Fowler with his current form springs to mind. Unless he feels the exertions of his involvement in Rio or the burden of failing there, he should be a good bet to finish in top 10. Don’t forget to keep an eye on Furyk and Jimmy Walker too.

Last year’s action saw Davis Love III become the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history when he snatched his third Wyndham Championships’ crown. The tournament was remembered not just for Love’s success but also for the fact that it ended Tiger Woods’ season.

And this year focus will be not just on the clutch of Olympians but also on those who are trying to move inside the top 125 in points. All but 11 players currently ranked in the bracket of 91-190 on points are playing this week which points to a scramble for places. Be sure to catch the action!

Golf Tips For The Wyndham Championship

We start our tips for the Wyndham with a young Spaniard who recently turned pro after a highly successful amateur career. Jon Rahm has made a sensational start to his PGA career and can gain his first win of many, that we have no doubts on. He is a best priced 25/1 with Paddypower but this still represents good value when you look at the field.

We like the chances of the recent PGA Championship winner Jimmy Walker. He was imperious when winning his first major of what had been a quiet season for him. It moved him up to 15th in the FedEx Cup standings and puts him in good stead for a good run at the $10,000,000 first prize in a few weeks time. We are confident of a good showing this week and he could well be worth following for the next few tournaments.

What of the Olympians chances another Spaniard who has been knocking on the door is Rafa Cabrera Bello who had a fine week at the Olympics to finish T5. yet to win this year he has probably been one of the most consistent golfers on the European Tour this year and finds himself well place for the end of season Race To Dubai 4th place. He is more than capable of winning a tournament such as this and we will have a little each way on him at odds of 40/1.
