The PGA Wyndham Championship takes place this weekend at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC. This is one of the easier course on the tour and will feature scores well under par. In fact, in the previous four tourneys here the winners each had at least -17 as the winner. The field is a bit slim after the PGA Championship last weekend at Bellerive in St. Louis, MO.

The course was designed by Donald Ross and opened for play in 1926. It is currently the only Ross-designed course hosting a regular event on the PGA Tour. A second 18-hole course, originally Cardinal Golf and Country Club and opened in 1975, was renovated by Pete Dye in 2007.  It is a par 70 with 7,127 yards and the greens and fairways are Bermuda grass.

Let’s look at a few of the golfers and how they may fare.

  • Webb Simpson was very solid at Bellerive and playing this course is like being home. Add in the fact that he is a prior winner of this event.
  • Hideki Matsuyama was a very late entry into this tourney. He likes this friendly course and maybe had some premonition about winning here.
  • Henrik Stenson has had a solid season and may want to make up for his performance last weekend.
  • Daniel Berger is a good choice here as he finished tied for 12th at Bellerive. He always plays majors better than regular tourneys.
  • Rafa Cabrera Bello is a hot golfer in recent weeks as he has received 17th and 10th in his previous two PGA tour events. In 2016, he finished 6th at this event.
  • Rory Sabbatini finished fourth last year at Wyndham and got 8th back in 2013. He knows the course well and with it being open he may get a win.
  • Shane Lowry has reached into the Top 15 in his last three events and has made the cut in nine of his previous 11 events. He appears ready to break through and this course might help him along.
