If you’ve been following along with my previews you had a good weekend thanks to Collin Morikawa winning the PGA Championship! This week we shift pour focus and picks to the Wyndham Championship, the final PGA TOUR event before the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
PGA Wyndham Championship 2020 Picks
The Wyndham Championship will take place at Sedgefield Country Club, a Donald Ross designed course. Sedgefield measures 7,127 yards for a par 70.
Webb Simpson is the favorite to win it all, as he should be due to his past success at this course. But I don’t want to go chalk here, so here are my three favorite picks for the Wyndham Championship, with nice payoffs to win it all.
Si Woo Kim (42-1)
If you read this column weekly, you know I look for guys that have had past success at the particular event and players that are trending in the right direction. Because of that theory, and of course some deep research, I’ve picked three winners since the restart.
Kim fits the tab this week, as he has six straight made cuts, just finished T13 at the PGA Championship and finished 5th in last year’s Wyndham Championship so deserves a pick. At these odds, I like my chances with Kim, who is on a mini-heater.
Brendon Todd (41-1)
Todd has been a fixture on the leaderboards and is one of the most consistent players on the Tour with two wins and nine total top 10s this season. He’s also coming off of a T20 last week.
This course requires accuracy off the tee, and that is Todd’s bread and butter. His tee-to-green game is solid and his putting has been money. I would be really surprised if Todd isn’t contending come Sunday, so these odds are a gift.
Kevin Kisner (35-1)
One of the reasons I liked Morikawa last week was because the event took place at a familiar course for him. We get the same scenario here, as he gets to go back to the Carolinas. Familiar territory for him this weekend, which definitely gives him an edge over some of his competitors.
Kisner finished 19th at the PGA Championship, 25th in the WGC and third at the Rocket Mortgage, which is another Donald Ross design. He is trending upward at the right time.
His iron play is what will make or break him this weekend. I’m hoping it’s on for a nice payout.
Doc Redman (81-1)
Doc is worth throwing a little sprinkle on. He is an accurate driver and if he can keep up the sharp iron game, he has a chance to be there Sunday.
So, hopefully these picks for the Wyndham Championship will continue our run of form. Good luck!
