2023 Wyndham Championship: 9 Best Bets to Consider

The 2023 Wyndham Championship will tee off on Thursday, August 3rd at Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina. This is the last stop on the PGA Tour schedule and the final chance for golfers to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Former Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama is the current favorite to win this event, as he's currently listed at +1800. We know he's been struggling of late, but Justin Thomas may be worth a sprinkle at +4000. Here are 9 best bets to consider making for the 2023 Wyndham Championship.

Sungjae Im -120 OVER Denny McCarthy

Denny was rolling headed into the Open Championship. He took 20th at the US Open, 7th at the Travelers, then 6th at the John Deere. However, he shot an abysmal +12 over the 1st two rounds.

Im was strong enough to pick up a tie for 20th at the Open but then failed to make the cut last week at the 3M. Both have decent track records at the Wyndham. McCarthy had his best finish (9th) in 2020 and then a couple of Top 25 finishes. Im, on the other hand, has been incredibly consistent here.

His worst finish was 24th in 2021, prior to his runner-up finish last year. His other 2 starts here at Sedgefield produced Top 10 finishes. We believe Im will get the job done in this matchup and be well ahead of most of the field come Saturday.

Russell Henley -150 OVER Shane Lowry

Lowry is coming off a missed cut at the Open Championship for his latest event. Henley is coming off the same fate as both men shot 7 over par and missed the cut. Statistically this season, both men rank near the same in the strokes gained categories.

However, their histories here at Sedgefield are much different. After both missed the cut in 2018, Lowry went on to finish 23rd in 2020 and then 83rd last year.

Henley had greater success. After a 31st finish in 2019, he rattled off 3 straight Top 10 finishes. We believe that will be the difference in this matchup this weekend.

Webb Simpson +165 OVER JJ Spaun

JJ Spaun has missed the cut at Sedgefield in 3 straight starts here. His lone made cut in 2019 only produced a 69th place finish.

His putting on the season has been extremely erratic and has him sitting in 143rd on Tour in that category. Now, Webb hasn’t been much better this year with the flat stick but has been decent on his approaches, combine that with his history at Sedgefield and we love getting him here at plus money.

Top 40 Finish: Richy Werenski

Plain and simple, at 5 to 1, we feel this is a must play with just a sprinkle. Werenski has finished inside the Top 40 in 3 straight starts here at the Wyndham Championship.

Sure, his recent form has not been what we would like, but he did finish 13th here last year and knows the track well.

Top 40 Finish: Scott Piercy

Piercy has made his way inside the Top 40 at the Wyndham 3 of the last 4 years. In 2021, he picked up his best finish there to date with a tie for 15th.

If he can avoid having to withdraw again, this ticket at over 4 to 1 will be worth its risk.

Top 40 Finish: Russell Knox

Knox has been flirting with the Top 40 over his last 6 starts. Unfortunately, only once was he able to come through. However, he has torn up Sedgefield over the past 2 seasons.

After a 24th place finish in 2021, he was able to better that and finish in 21st last season. You can not beat the price we are getting on him here to be half the golfer he has been here over the past 2 years.

Top 40 Finish: Ryan Armour

Throw out the missed cut at last year’s Wyndham and Armour looks like a stud. He was 8th in 2018, 22nd in 2019, and 25th in 2021.

He did just miss the cut at the 3M Open but was solid the event previous (Barbasol Championship) where he was tied for 16th at the end of Sunday’s round.

Top 40 Finish: Webb Simpson

Webb had to withdraw last year at the Wyndham but his previous 4 years at Sedgefield have been nothing but uber-impressive. He had back-to-back runner-up finishes in 2018 and 2019.

Then in 2020, he finished 3rd prior to a 7th place finish in 2021. Webb is arguably the best golfer when on Sedgefield and we are obligated to ride him here.

Top 20 Finish: Si Woo Kim

Si Woo has not played since the Open Championship where he was a disaster and missed the cut posting a +7 through 2 days. However, his career at Sedgefield nearly mirrors that of Simpson’s.

He also withdrew last year after finishing runner-up in 2021. He was 3rd in 2020 and 5th in 2019. He is certainly a contender to make a run this weekend.
