Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club PGA DFS Picks
This week we’re back on the east coast in Greensboro, NC, where JT Poston will be defending his 2019 win. Sedgefield Country Club is one of the easier courses on the PGA Tour. It is a par 70, 7100 yards designed by Donald Ross played on Bermuda greens. The course has only three par 4’s that measure over 450 yards with a bogey average of 19%. And that’s about it. Holes 5, 8, 9, 13, 15 and 16 have a 25-50% chance in smashing birdies. The key is not ending up in a fairway bunker off the tee, this is when accuracy will come into play this week. But in general this event will be a birdie fest. Alright, let’s get to it.
- Strokes Gained Approach
- Strokes Gained Off The Tee – Driving Accuracy
- Birdie or Better %
- Par 4 Scoring 400-450 yards
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Webb Simpson ($11200) – One narrative that’s going to be on replay is the following “Webb Simpson named his daughter after this course” so this is a pretty special course to him. Not only based on that narrative though. In the last 3 years Webb has finished 2nd twice and 3rd in 2017. Lastly, Webb is ranked 4th in birdie average, 11th on APP and 31st in driving accuracy.
- Billy Horschel ($9,100)– Billy gains 0.3 strokes on this surface. He’s also ranked 4th in my Donald Ross model. He grades out 3rd OTT, 5th in bogey avoidance and 15th in BoB%. In the last 2 years Billy has finished 6th and 11th here. Billy is also ranked 53rd in driving accuracy. In correlated courses he’s ranked the following: 1st at Muirfield in 30 rounds, 86Th at Copperhead in 8 rounds, 28th at TPC River Highlands in 12 rounds and 32nd at Harbour Town in 28 rounds.
- Harris English ($9300) – Bermuda specialist Harris English returns to the Wyndham Championship – he’s finished here 39th in 2019, 11th in 2018, 50th in 2017, 46th in 2016 and 31st in 2015. Harris gains 0.4 strokes in putting in this surface and in the last 5 events he’s gained 1.7 strokes on APP and 2.8 T2G. He’s also ranked 1st in bogey avoidance, 9th in putting and 10th in Par 4: 400-450 yards.
- Justin Rose ($9900) – I wish Rose could be more of a cash play, but he’s so unpredictable. This course fits his style in the sense that he doesn’t have to drive the ball far. Rose is ranked 5th in BoB%, 3rd in SG: Par 5 and 27th on APP. At the PGA Championship he gained 4.1 strokes on APP and 4 strokes T2G.
- Brendon Todd ($8900) – Todd gains 0.5 strokes on Bermuda greens and in the last 5 events he’s gained 1.3 strokes on APP and 3.3 strokes in putting. If there’s something Brendon does right is hitting fairways. In my model he’s ranked 3rd in fairways gained and 5th in putting.
- Chesson Hadley ($6600) – One of my favorite plays for this week especially at this price. Hadley comes in ranked 12th in my overall model. Hadley is ranked 3rd in Birdie or Better percentage, 13th on APP and 24th in fairways gained. He also gains a stroke in putting in Bermuda greens and has played here a lot – never better than a 45th finish, but for this price I can’t complain.
- Paul Casey ($10300) – After coming back from the break he had a terrible 4 starts, but it seems like he shook off that rust. Last week at the PGA Championship with a 2nd place finish. He gained 7 strokes on APP and 12 strokes T2G. Casey is ranked 3rd overall in my model. He’s 2nd on APP, 4th OTT, 9th on bogey avoidance and 19th in Par 4: 400-450 yards.
