PGA Wyndham Championship Handicapping Preview and Betting Tips

by Earl Campbell | August 11, 2020 |

Well, another golf tournament and yet another Spooky Express winner, as we cashed in on Collin Morikawa at +2800 in the PGA Championship as one of the Spooky Express Golf Newsletter bonus plays! 

With that winner, we have now cashed 3 winners in 2 weeks and are looking to extend our streak of wins to this weeks PGA Tour's Wyndham Championship.   

Wyndham Championship

The Wyndham Championship was founded in 1938 and was played at Sedgefield from 1938 until 1977. The tournament moved to Forest Oaks Country Club from 1977 until 2008, returning to Sedgefield Country Club for the past 15 years.

Sedgefield Country Club is a 7,127 yard, par 70 golf course. As you can see, the length isn’t overwhelming this week so accuracy will be more important than smashing the ball.  Donald Ross originally designed the course with his patented small green theory.

The greens at Sedgefield Country Club were reconfigured in 2012 and are now Bermuda Grass. They have played very fast over the last few years and can cause some headaches for golfers that aren’t putting well.  Last year, the greens were playing at a 12-13 on the stimpmeter. That being said, the “Ross Greens” are still small on average so that is another factor to consider when handicapping this week’s tournament.

The greens are not only small but they slope pretty drastically from front to back.  The bottom line, good putters do well here at Sedgefield Country Club.   

There are 7 holes that have water hazards in play at Sedgefield.  That being said, the course itself plays at the 6th easiest course on tour over the past 4 years so it isn't really a big deal with the water.

Sedgefield Country Club System Attributes

There is a ton of course history for Sedgefield and that should not be overlooked.  One thing I want to emphasize this week is recent form should ALWAYS supersede course history.   

As I said earlier, accuracy will be key here. The course isn’t very long playing at only 7,127 yards so keeping it in the fairway and hitting those greens are going to be important.  The main course attribute I will use this week is Greens In Reg. We want to hit those putting surfaces this week and with these greens being like ice, gaining those extra strokes will be key to cashing a winner this week.

The second and third attributes we are using are Driving Accuracy and Total Driving.  Now, you may be asking yourself why we are using both. Here is my reasoning. First, Total Driving is how long and accurate a golfer is as defined by PGA but the reality is it shows who can hit the ball long and straight.  On the other hand, Driving Accuracy is exactly what it says, it determines who is accurate off the tee.  

Below is a list in the order of placement for our Wyndham Championship system attributes:

  • Greens In Regulation
  • Stroke Gained: Putting
  • Driving Accuracy
  • Par 4 Birdie or Better
  • Total Driving
  • Strokes Gained: Tee To Green
  • Birdie or Better %
  • Par 4 Scoring Average
  • Scrambling  

Wyndham Championship Golf Wagers

Important to remember here when playing your golfers.  The FedEx Cup Playoffs start next week at the Northern Trust and only the top 125 golfers get in.  That means, you have to sort of pay close attention to who is on the line and who needs to win some points to make it in.  Certainly, they need to be good enough to play here but sometimes that extra added push of making the playoffs seems to make golfers find some extra scoring when they are on that line.  

Webb Simpson at +1008 at Bookmaker for 3 Units

This is a tough one for me.  First off, I think this could go two ways this week.  When you are betting this week, you have to take these factors into consideration.  Webb Simpson is sitting 3rd in the FedEx Cup Standings, so he really doesn’t need this tournament. 

That being said, he went to school at Wake Forest and he always seems to step up his game in this tournament.  I think Webb will show up but are you willing to risk playing just him this week, because his odds are too low to play with others.
