Positioning the field (chances)
- Webb Simpson (12-1): Trends focalizing including a mind blowing record here and a truly underrated season in which Simpson has anchored another Ryder Cup choice.
- Joaquin Niemann (28-1): I believe he’s uncommon. First time here falling off a made cut at the PGA in which he played with the leaderboard before blurring late.
- Hideki Matsuyama (16-1): He’s indicated me something over the most recent couple of weeks with some strong play following a couple of long stretches of meandering. I don’t know whether he’s discovered it, however he has so much ability that it probably won’t make any difference.
- Brandt Snedeker (22-1): His history here is strong – four best 10s incorporating at T3 in 2016.
- Rafa Cabrera Bello (22-1): He completed T5 here in 2016 and top 10 at the PGA. Ryder Cup bolt.
- Henrik Stenson (16-1): He’s the shielding champion however there are damage concerns, and he missed the cut at the PGA.
- Ryan Moore (33-1): He’s been on a small scale warmer generally and won here in 2009.
- Ollie Schniederjans (40-1): The main group all-traj fellow almost won here a year prior and played well at Bellerive before blurring late.
- Billy Horschel (28-1): This week feels like a Billy Horschel win, isn’t that right?
- Sergio Garcia (33-1): I know this late spring has been totally monstrous, however he really has something in question this week as he’s No. 131 in the FedEx Cup rankings, and I need to run with the ability in circumstances like that.
Field quality – C+: It’s not a decent field, but rather that is compensated for by the “who keeps their PGA Tour card by getting inside the main 125” show.
Three stories to observe
- Minors to bigs: Several golfers who were in school a year ago are playing the big deal this week. Doc Redman (Clemson), Doug Ghim (Texas), Norman Xiong (Oregon) and Dylan Meyer (Illinois) are among those playing who, one year prior, were preparing for the U.S. Novice at Riviera. None are probably going to win, yet it merits tailing them all as they attempt and cut a way on the PGA Tour.
- Hi, Euros? We discussed this on the First Cut Podcast before in the week, however the core of the European Ryder Cup group isn’t looking awesome at the present time. Stenson and Justin Rose may be harmed, and Garcia is playing as inadequately as I can ever recollect. Possibly they get it on track this week, and they’ll have to as Paris looms.
- Close finish: The serene best dramatization of the season is folks bouncing all through the main 125 over the last nine holes at Sedgefield. Just the main 125 in the FedEx Cup standings fit the bill for the PGA Tour for next season, and there are some huge names that need enormous weeks. As indicated by the PGA Tour, a normal of 2.7 golfers hop into the best 125 from outside of it consistently at Greensboro.
- 2017: Henrik Stenson
- 2016: Si Woo Kim
- 2015: Davis Love III
- 2014: Camilo Villegas
- 2013: Patrick Reed

Wyndham Championship picks
Champ: I’ve been so awed by how Simpson has played so far this year. He made the cut at each significant title, won the Players, influenced the Ryder To container squad and is right now No. 13 in strokes increased by and large. Simple pick this week. Chances: 12-1
Rafa Cabrera Bello
Top 10: Stud. Four best 10s and seven best 25s of every 16 begins so far this year, and he’s beginning to feel it a tad as the Ryder Cup comes into center. Chances: 22-1
Sleeper: Top 20 at the PGA Championship, and the 27-year-old Suri has three back to back best 30s at creature occasions (counting two majors). Chances: 45-1
