What a week at Whistling Straits. As predicted, Jason Day claimed his first major victory in emphatic fashion and you could see just how much it all meant to him, as he tapped in his final putt to take his name off the list of ‘most talented players never to have won a major’. Truly inspiring stuff from the Australian and a victory for the sport, as one of the really good guys on the tour accomplished a lifelong goal. As the sun sets on the last major of the year, the PGA road show makes its way to out of Wisconsin and into Greensboro North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship to be held at Sedgefield Country Club. Sedgefield Country Club is a par 70 and measures 7127 yards. The field entered this week is exactly the field expected after a major, rather underwhelming and anticlimactic. However there are two noticeable entries being Tiger Woods and Adam Scott. Woods is desperately trying to make the FedExCup playoffs so he has entered this event for the very first time. There isn’t an overwhelming amount of evidence that would suggest Tiger can win here, he’s been poor all season barring a little cameo at the masters where he finished for a tie of 17th. It is not a case of him being the worst player in the world, far from it, only there are so many better nowadays.
Adam Scott (+2000 BetOnline.ag)
Adam Scott is the highest ranked player in the world to be playing this week. The extremely talented Australian has not won this season and will be looking to bring in his first bit of silverware this week at the Wyndham Championship. His crisp and pure ball striking means he should compete highly during most events. However his putting has often let him down. If he can sink the pressure putts this week then he has all the other skills to finish on top of the pile this coming Sunday.
Brandt Snedeker (+1800 BetOnline.ag)
Brandt Snedeker enjoys a rich history in this tournament. He is a past champion having won at Sedgefield Country Club in 2007, since then he has had three top tens and one top 5. The layout seems to suit hie eye and brings the best out of his game. He managed a 12th place finish last week at Whistling Straits, all of this despite a sore hip. The talented golfer from Nashville is in good form, couple that with a very good showing at this event over the past 7 years and he may well be the man crowned champion on Sunday Evening.
Charl Schwartzel (+4000 BetOnline.ag)
The 2011 Masters winner needs a good finish this week to make the FedexCup playoffs. He currently sits on the cut line, placed 125th in the Fedex cup rankings. The South African has been getting his game back together consistently over the past 12 months and is a specialist long iron player who will not need to hit driver much this week given the length of the course. Sedgefield Country Club is all set up for Schwartzel and plays right into his hands.
