Now that all the excitement from the year’s first major has subsided it’s back to work. The PGA Tour heads to Greensboro, North Carolina, for the season-ending Wyndham Championship starting Thursday. With valuable FedEx Cup points on the line ahead of the playoffs the field is one of the strongest this tournament has seen. Webb Simpson has made Sedgefield Country Club his home with three consecutive podium finishes along with a title in 2011. Those fancy numbers lodged Simpson at the top of the odds board. Second favorite Brooks Koepka aims to make up for his fourth-round meltdown at the PGA Championship while getting his game in shape for the playoffs.

Need to Know
One thing to note is the race for the FedEx Cup playoffs. Several players are on bubble while others look to solidify or improve their ranking. Sedgefield Country Club is a short 7,131-yard, par-70 course that plays straightforward. It’s been one of the easiest par 70s on Tour and was the ninth-easiest overall in scoring relative to par last year. It’s not going to frighten the field, but there are some roadblocks. Water is present on a number of holes while doglegs and small, undulating greens will be a test. The biggest stat this week is accuracy. Stay clean off the tee while avoiding the water and chances of scoring low improve drastically.
Wyndham Championship Matchup Picks
Justin Rose +105 vs. Abraham Ancer
Accuracy off the tee was an issue last week but Rose did find his putting stroke, so he’s got that going for him. And he finally broke through after three straight MCs to finish ninth at the PGA Championship. He gained over four strokes on approach and seven strokes putting keeping him in contention. The Sedgefield layout should be a bit easier and if Rose can hit fairways the rest of his game is in form for a high finish. He has three top-15s since the restart and grabbed a top-5 in his only appearance here.
Jordan Spieth +135 vs. Brendon Todd
There’s a reason why Spieth can be had at this price: his game hasn’t been very good. It wasn’t that long ago it seemed like he was winning every other week, but he hasn’t tasted victory since 2017. On the plus side he’s only missed two cuts in the last 19 events. This is definitely a risky pick but I believe he can snap out of the funk and Sedgefield is a good place for him to do that. He finished runner-up here in 2013 and opened last year 64-67. We won’t talk about what happened after that. I feel a burst coming and I’m betting on it.
Webb Simpson -130 vs. Patrick Reed
Given his recent history at Sedgefield how can you not back Simpson even at this price? He played collegiately just down the road and earned his first Tour victory here in 2011. He’s played through the weekend the last 10 tournaments with two seconds and a third the last three years. He has five top-5s among seven top-10s in 11 career starts at this lot. Pretty impressive and he’s a worthy pick despite the price and opponent.
Brooks Koepka -105 vs. Tommy Fleetwood
Maybe I haven’t learned my lesson yet since I keep going back to Koepka in the matchups. He let me down last week, but not more than he let himself down. Going after a PGA Championship three-peat a final-round 74 took him out of contention. His game hasn’t fully returned but there have been encouraging signs the last few outings. Playing out the stretch tells me he needs to work on some things ahead of the playoffs so I expect to see his best. Actually, I’m counting on it.
Kevin Kisner -105 vs. Shane Lowry
He’s from the South but Kisner is another Carolinian fond of the course. Plus, he’s riding decent form into the event giving me the confidence to back him. He’s 5 for 5 at Sedgefield with two top-10s in his last three starts. He’s also coming off a respectable T19 at the PGA Championship along with a solo third and T25 in his last four Tour starts.
