Daily Fantasy Golf – Wyndham Championship Preview

Davis Love III poses with the Sam Snead Cup after winning the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club on August 23, 2015 in Greensboro, North Carolina

The Wyndham Championship represents the last chance for many of the field to force their way into the FedEx Cup series. PlayON looks at which players are primed for a big week in Greensboro. 

Golf’s “regular season” is drawing to a close this week, which means a bunch of lucrative final playoff spots are on the line at Sedgefield Country Club this week. With so much on the line this tournament promises to be one of the more exciting of the year.

The set up of the course should be obliging in this regard. Much like Deere Run last week, Sedgefield is no monster with six scores of 62 or better recorded during last year’s Wyndham Championship. Birdies are expected to plentiful once again and a winning score in the high teens under par would not be surprising.

High Priced Players

Brandt Snedeker ($21.8m): Snedeker finished tied for fifth in Canada in his second to last tournament, before a disappointing PGA Championship. The Sned has finished in the top ten three times at Sedgefield and hasn’t missed a cut on tour since June.

Bill Haas ($19.7m): Haas hasn’t played a ton of golf over the last two months, but his form has been good when he’s teed it up. The 2011 FedEx Cup winner was top ten at the Open and also finished t-3rd at the Quicken Loans in June. He has traditionally played well at Sedgefield, where he has four top tens in his last seven appearances.

Mid Priced Players

Jim Furyk ($17.9m): Furyk’s last round on tour was a 58 which somewhat colours this opinion. With a ranking of 106 in the FedEx Cup list, the former winner needs to produce this week to get into the playoff series. He was top ten at his only previous visit to Sedgefield.

Wesley Bryan ($11.9m): The South Carolina native followed up his third Web.com Tour victory of the season with a great performance at the John Deere Classic where he finished in the top ten. A repeat at the Wyndham Championship could seal his tour card for next year.

Low Priced Players

Bud Cauley ($8.2m): Cauley finished t-8th at Deere Run last week and should have success on a course of similar difficulty. At 143 in the FedEx Race he needs a big finish this week to get in.

Ernie Els ($9.3m): Els’ price is just too low to ignore for a player who was once up there with the best in the game. It hasn’t been a good season for the big easy but maybe this week he can roll back the years with a 4th made cut in a row.
