The PGA TOUR regular season comes to a close this week in Greensboro with a lot of uncertainty for some recognizable names in the playoff bubble. While the FedEx Cup seems mundane to most fans against the Majors and international team events, players take it very seriously. It turns out that a $ 60 million prize pool with a $ 15 million winner bonus will spark players’ interest, shockingly. This is the reason Louis Oosthuizen skipped the Olympics. He wants that money.
This is probably why Louis will be starting at Sedgefield for the first time. He’s just trying to rack up as many points as possible to get himself in the best position for East Lake. It is also an excellent tune-up course for the TOUR Championship in a few weeks. Sedgefield and East Lake are both Donald Ross courses on Bermudagrass in the southern United States. There has been a lot of crossover success between sites over the years. If you’re worried about extra reps, this is the place to play, if the ultimate goal is to make a lot of money in Atlanta.
Along with Louis, the pitch is led by Brian Harman, Jason Kokrak, Webb Simpson, Hideki Matsuyama, Will Zalatoris, Russell Henley, Chris Kirk, Kevin Na, Matthew Wolff, Bubba Watson and Patrick Reed, who is playing his fifth consecutive week, with probably the next three playoffs on the program. Five golf tournaments in a row isn’t the hardest thing, but your trip has to be at some point. He has now left England – Minneapolis – Tokyo – Memphis – Greensboro at this time. Memphis to Greensboro isn’t a big deal, but it’s a lot of ink on a passport last month.
The Wyndham is certainly not the strongest field, but there are bigger names playing to advance to the playoffs. Gary Woodland, Matt Kuchar, Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler are all in the playoff bubble. One cut made should be enough to get them through the big money tower. It’s still a should yet. Others like Charles Howell, Francesco Molinari, Rory Sabbatini, Michael Thompson, Ryan Moore and more can still climb the standings with a quality finish this week as well. Nothing is therefore a guarantee apart from a beautiful finish that advances you.

Wyndham Championship 2021: Ratings
Like a lot of events we’ve encountered over the past six weeks or so, the Wyndham is another wedge and hot putting birdiefest. With the added benefit of the Sedgefield CC being a short course, reducing the importance of driving distance, every skill in the field has a chance to compete.
– Fantasy National News
Each of the last five champions crossed the -20 mark in their victories with – Strokes won: Approach and Strokes won: Putting – having had more than twice as much impact on the top 5 of the standings in the last eight years . Bermuda greens putting surfaces are around the TOUR average (6,500 square feet) and are historically faster than most PGA TOUR greens.
With only two Par 5s on the layout, both accessible as two by all players on the field (# 5 has an eagle rate of 6.1%, while # 15 has an eagle rate. 4.2%), it is the eight Par 4 measuring between 400-450 yards that will end up being the separator. In the last 24 rounds, by Fantasy National, Hank Lebioda, Kramer Hickok, Zach Johnson, Kevin Streelman and Ryan Armor have won the most strokes on holes of this distance.
Beyond East Lake (TOUR Championship), Detroit CC (Rocket Mortgage Classic) is Donald Ross’ other regular rotation course. However, there has been very little crossover between Detroit and Sedgefield. In fact, even more than East Lake, it is Harbor Town (Heritage) and TPC Sawgrass (The PLAYERS) that have been the corollaries of the ranking over the years. And that makes sense: shorter courses on Bermuda where most of the skills are live.
On a per round basis, using only Sawgrass, Sedgefield and Harbor Town stats, Webb Simpson, Chris Baker, JT Poston, Brian Harman and Adam Scott have the most strokes won: Total in the last 24 rounds. If you shorten it to the last 12 laps, Sungjae Im and Si Woo Kim enter the Top 3.
2021 Wyndham Championship Pick
Henley hasn’t played since the Open, but his work, while sparse, has been excellent over the past two months. He landed the Top 20 at the US Open, Travelers and John Deere before slamming the trunk in England, and has averaged over five strokes on the approach in those three events. Now back on his favorite putting surface (+0.36 SG: PUTT / round in Bermuda), Sedgefield is a course that can get him out of his shortcomings off the tee.

If WOOOOO Kim
If you prayed that the 13 he made on a Par 3 in TPC Southwind’s final round would crush his chances, those chances went unanswered. It’s been a pretty gruesome run for the South Korean since his Top 10 at the Memorial, but strangely enough, like Bubba Watson, he has a few “happy places” on the PGA TOUR. These are basically all of the Pete Dye and Sedgefield CC courses. He earned his first career victory on this course in 2016 and has finished consecutively in the Top 5 for the past two years. The stats will only tell you it’s a bad game, but we know better with Si WOOOO. He even told me to play it this week.
