Best Bets at the 2022 Wyndham Championship
The end of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season is at hand. The 2022 Wyndham Championship is the last event before the FedEx Cup Playoffs start next week with the FedEx St. Jude Championship. Most of the top golfers in the world will not be taking part in this week’s event in order to be fully prepared for TPC Southwind, allowing a lot of hopefuls the opportunity to try to qualify for the $15 million tournament next week.
Will Zalatoris, Shane Lowry, and Sungjae Im are the three favorites to win this event by the golf betting odds after Tony Finau decided that he wouldn’t try to win three straight competitions. Kevin Kisner is the defending champion after winning a six-way playoff last year, but he is 40-1 to win the Wyndham Championship this week.
Event: Wyndham Championship
Category: PGA Tour
Date: August 4-7, 2022
Location: Sedgefield Country Club, Greensboro, North Carolina
2021: Kevin Kisner -15
2020: Jim Herman -21
2019: J.T. Polson -22
2018: Brandt Snedeker -21
2017: Henrik Stenson -22
This is one of the oldest events on the PGA Tour. The Wyndham Championship was originally known as the Greater Greensboro Open, and it was founded in 1938. This event has been played at Sedgefield Country Club since 2008, and the Ross Course was designed in 1926.
There isn’t a lot of mystery surrounding this course. It’s as standard of a track as you will see on the PGA Tour. The greens are average, and it’s a par 70 that checks in at a little over 7,100 yards. The weather is expected to be nice throughout the weekend too.
Best Bet to Win the Wyndham Championship: Shane Lowry +1600
Shane Lowry hasn’t won a PGA Tour event in the United States in seven years. Lowry won the 2015 WGC Bridgestone Invitational, but the only other PGA Tour event that the Irish golfer has won is the 2019 Open Championship. He has three T3 finishes in the last six months, yet his best performance over his last six outings was a T10 at the RBC Canadian Open.
Lowry has plenty of experience at Sedgefield CC. He finished T7 at the 2017 Wyndham Championship, and he came in 23rd at the 2020 Wyndham Championship. That gives him a leg up on competitors that don’t have much experience on this course.
Value Play to Win the Wyndham Championship: Russell Henley +2200
This play was a lot stronger when Russell Henley was 30-1 earlier in the week, but there is still something to like about Henley at 22-1. Henley finished T10 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, and he nearly won the Wyndham Championship last year. He led the event after the first, second, and third rounds but faltered on Sunday to finish T7. Henley has two straight T10 finishes here, so this could be his breakthrough win.
