This week’s stop at Sedgefield Country Club is the final PGA Tour event of the season before the FedEx Cup Playoffs get underway. For some, it’s all about jockeying for position in hopes of advancing to Atlanta.
For others, it’s play well or go home.
Rain in the forecast will soften up the Donald Ross design – a par-70 layout that has surrendered a winning score of at least 21-under-par in each of the last four years. Throw in the aggressive mindsets we’ll see in the regular-season finale and it should be one big birdie-fest breaking out in Greensboro.
My Wyndham Championship prediction and betting pick for 2020 follow below. Let’s start with the odds, though, and find out who will be taking part.

Tying for 37th at Harding Park didn’t stop the best golf bookies from installing Webb Simpson at the top of the Wyndham Championship odds sheet. Webby picked up his maiden PGA Tour victory right here at Sedgefield, plus he landed as the runner-up at this event in 2018 and 2019.
Brooks Koepka lurks right behind despite displaying an erratic short game Sunday at the PGA Championship. To be fair, Brooks looked completely disinterested on the golf course during the final round and I’m wondering how inspired he’ll be to play this week at what is a “regular” tour event.
On the flip side, Justin Rose arrives in North Carolina with lots of good vibes. Paul Casey played superb golf for four days, and Patrick Reed collected sufficient momentum thanks to a bogey-free 66 on Sunday.
Lots of directions to go when making a Wyndham Championship prediction.
What Happened at the 2019 Wyndham Championship?
Four days of mistake-free golf resulted in J.T. Poston’s first win on the PGA Tour. The Western Carolina product rattled off rounds of 65-65-66 before firing 62 on Sunday to surge past 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An.
Poston became the fourth player in tour history to complete a 72-hole event without carding a single bogey (Lee Trevino, Charles Howell III, Scott Piercy), although only Poston and Trevino wound up winning the respective event.
The scoring at Sedgefield was ripe for the picking as J.T.’s 62 on Sunday was one of four sub-63 rounds for the week. 15-under-par didn’t even crack the top 10.
The cut fell at -4 leaving household names like Hideki Matsuyama and Abraham Ancer on the outside looking in.
Last year’s Winning Score: -22, 258
Last Year’s Cut Line: -4, 136
My 2020 Wyndham Championship Pick
During a week where we saw a bunch of bombers clog up the leaderboard, Brendon Todd’s disciplined mindset and stellar putting propelled him inside the top 20. Frankly, Brendon and his 160-mph ball speed with a driver had no business being in the mix at a big boy golf course like TPC Harding Park – which goes to show how well Todd is currently playing.
Put Brendon on a relaxed setup like the one he’ll face this week and he’ll turn right back into a birdie-making machine.
Todd’s amazing comeback journey and his two wins early in the season have been well documented, but let’s focus on the present.
Three straight tops-25s, a boatload of confidence, and a putting stroke that never lets up.
Did I mention the dude rarely misses fairways and leads the PGA Tour in scrambling?
