Golf: Wyndham Championship Tips


WITH this being the last chance to make the top 125 players to take part in the Fed-Ex Cup play-offs the Wyndham Championship takes on a special meaning for those on the borderline. So this could be a real shoot-out on Sunday.

The Donald Ross-designed Sedgefield course is set up for accuracy off the tee and with the greens set up around 12 on the stimpmeter this could be the important stats for here. Since the Wyndham has returned to Sedgefield eight years ago last season was the first time the No.1-ranked player on par fours didn’t finish in the top two. So that’s another stat to look out for.

William McGirt has had a good season with seven top 10s including a win at the Memorial in June. He is 29th in Driving Accuracy (66%) but in his last tournament, the USPGA, he had a stat of 75%. He is T20 in par four scoring with 4.01 and a putts per round of 29.02 (T89) so he fits the bill for this course.

Kevin Na, who is still looking for his first win since 2011, has had a couple of seconds and two thirds this season. In the last three seasons he has finished second five times and seems to struggle to convert those seconds into a win. His DA is 65.30% (37) so like McGirt is one of the straightest hitters off the tee. In par four scoring he is T5 (3.99) and ppr of 28.61 (T33) and by my reckoning the South Korean is probably a stronger contender than McGirt.

I have to say when you look at Canadian Graham DeLaet’s form there is no reason on earth you would want to back him but he is T9 in par four scoring (4.00) and has a driving accuracy of 60.17% (T100). His putting isn’t the greatest but his ppr is 29.53 (T164) and with him sitting 116th in the Tour rankings you can bet he’ll be making a push to stay in the top 125. Overall I think he is in with a chance of a top-five finish.

    JohnB and ryanonell1995 well done on your picks for the Olympics. Rahm has been tipped quite a lot recently and is certainly in with a chance. Good luck to you both.
