  • Sungjae Im (+1400) has the best golf odds to win the 2022 Wyndham Championship.
  • The 2022 Wyndham Championship with be played at Sedgefield Country Club.

The final week of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season has arrived with the Wyndham Championship.

The vast majority of the top players have opted to rest up for the FedEx Cup Playoffs; no top-10 players in the world golf rankings are in the field. Sungjae Im, who is ranked No. 21 in the world, has the best PGA Tour odds to win at +1400.

Sedgefield Country Club is similar to Detroit Golf Club, where the Rocket Mortgage Classic was played last week. It’s a relatively short course with eight par-4s between 400-450 yards. There are also two reachable par-5s and two par-3s that play fewer than 175 yards.

Players will likely have many birdie looks, so it probably will come down to putting. 

I will be targeting players who putt well on Bermuda greens and the better wedge players. Given it’s the last week of the year and a relatively weak field, I will be playing it safe with just top-20 bets.

Denny McCarthy Top-20 Finish: +165

McCarthy is statistically the best putter on Bermuda greens on the PGA Tour this season. Putting is the biggest strength of his game; he hasn’t lost strokes putting in any event since January (Sony Open). 

He also enters in terrific form, with three top-5 finishes in his last five starts. However, he missed the cut last week, so I am taking a conservative route and sticking with a top-20 finish. It’s also worth noting he’s 40th in the FedEx Cup standings, so there is no added pressure this week.

Adam Svensson Top-20 Finish: +240

Svensson’s consistency of late has him 90th in the FedEx Cup standings and a virtual lock to be in the field next week. He has five top-25 finishes in his last six starts.

He finished T-31 at this event in 2019 but lost 2.6 strokes to the field putting. He enters this week gaining six or more strokes putting on average in his last five events, so the putter shouldn’t be an issue this week.

Andrew Putnam Top-25 Finish: +350

Putnam finished T-11 last week at the Rocket Mortgage, with his putting leading the way. Given the similarity of the two courses, there’s no reason to believe it won’t continue this week.

Overall, it’s been an up-and-down season, but at 95th in the FedEx Cup standings, there’s not much-added pressure this week. He’s made four of his last five cuts, too.
