Wyndham Championship Odds, Field & Betting Picks

Many of the favorites at this week’s Wyndham Championship will be looking to match what Tom Kim pulled off in the 2022 edition of this tournament. Kim, then 20, needed a win to make the FedEx Cup playoffs the following week, and he did so, winning in a playoff over Sungjae Im and John Huh. Check out the 2023 Wyndham Championship Odds and our free golf betting picks!

PGA Tour Odds

This year, many golfers are in this event because they need to earn points to reach the FedEx Cup playoffs, starting with next week’s FedEx St. Jude Invitational

As for the Wyndham, the event started in 1938 and was known as the Greater Greensboro Open for much of its history. The legendary Sam Snead holds the record with eight titles in this event with Davis Love III having won three times. The last two winners here—Kim and Kevin Kisner in 2021—needed a playoff to claim victory.

The Course

The PGA Tour plays on a Donald Ross-designed course, visiting Sedgefield Country Club in this North Carolina city. The first Greater Greensboro Open was held at Sedgefield, and the tournament has been played here for much of its history. The course was renovated in 2008 and has hosted this event every year since. The most challenging hole of the par-70, 7,131-yard course is the 18th—a 507-yard hole that’s a par 5 for members but a par 4 in this event. 

Believe it or not, three golfers hold different records here. The best score to par remains Jesper Parnevik, who was 23-under in 1999. When the course was a par 71, Henrik Stenson shot a 258 to set the aggregate score record in 2017. After the revamp to a par 70, J.T. Poston matched the 258 score in 2019.

Can Matsuyama or Im Get Their First Win of the Season?

Hideki Matsuyama and Sungjae Im (+1500) have been mainstays in the winner’s circle on the PGA Tour. Matsuyama won the 2021 Masters among his eight victories, and Im has a pair of wins since 2020 and several runner-up finishes as of late. One of those runner-ups came at last year’s Wyndham Championship, when he lost in a playoff to Kim, and the South Korean has two more top 10s here.

Matsuyama is a regular here, but he lacks consistency on this course. In seven tries, he’s come in the top 15 three times and missed the cut in the other four attempts. The 31-year-old has plenty of solid finishes as of late, missing just one cut in his last 11 events. His only top 10 in that stretch, however, is a fifth in The Players Championship back in March. He fared well in all four majors this season, so we’ll see what he can do here with the competition not as stiff.

Other Contenders

Russell Henley (+1750) has gotten better and better here at Sedgefield; his last three finishes are: ninth, seventh, and fifth. He’s also been highly consistent. In his last 16 rounds in this event, his average score is a 66.5. Henley also had a win in November and was fourth at The Masters.

Sam Burns (+2000) pulled off a win at the WGC-Match Play in March but has just one top-10 finish since in 11 starts. He took a week off after missing the cut at The Open Championship, so he’s hoping to gain confidence this week going into the playoff run. He’s only played here one time, placing 13th in 2020.

Shane Lowry (+2000) has been good this year but not quite good enough to secure a spot in the playoffs yet. He’s been a top-20 machine, but the points system rewards top fives and top 10s. The good news for Lowry is that a top 25 should get him in the playoffs, so it remains to be seen if he’ll take any chances if he’s towards the top of the leaderboard.

Two golfers at +2500 are in danger of missing the FedEx Cup playoffs for the first time in their careers: Justin Thomas and Adam Scott. Thomas hasn’t been his usual self all year, but he’s been off his game even more as of late. The 2022 PGA Championship winner missed the cut at the U.S. Open Championship and British Open, and he also didn’t make the weekend at the 3M Open last week. 

Scott had three top 10s in the span of a month in May and early June, but he’s dropped off a bit as of late. Scott, however, was a part of the six-way playoff here in 2021, so he has good experience here in Greensboro. 

J.T. Poston (+2500) is a streaky golfer, and he’s currently on a hot streak. Poston has a pair of sixths and a runner-up in his last four events, and as we mentioned before, he owns a share of the record-setting score in this event, which he set four years ago.

Longshots

Billy Horschel (+4000) has had a miserable season, but his 13th at the 3M Open—plus he should be confident here at Sedgefield. He’s made six consecutive cuts here, including a runner-up in 2020 and three more top-11 finishes.

Akshay Bhatia (+5000), 20, finds himself in Kim’s spot this year. He won the Barracuda Championship two weeks ago, but due to a loophole, he didn’t earn any FedEx Cup points for the win due to his special temporary status. He did pick up his PGA Tour card for 2024 with that win but expect the youngster to have a chip on his shoulder going into this win-and-in situation.

2023 Wyndham Championship Odds & Prediction

We’d love to back Im, but his game hasn’t been quite there as of late. We’re looking further down the odds board this week. Go with Scott, Ludvig Aberg, and J.T. Poston at +2500, and take a flier on Bhatia at +5000.

Here are the latest Golf odds from JazzSports for the PGA Tour’s 2023 Wyndham Championship.
