Top Betting Picks for the 2021 Wyndham Championship

| August 10, 2021 6:35 am PDT

After playing extra holes on back-to-back Sundays, Hideki Matsuyama drops anchor to Greensboro, looking to break the seal. The 2021 Masters champ sits atop the betting sheet alongside Webb Simpson, a man who has owned Sedgefield Country Club throughout his entire career.

Just how good has Webby been at the Donald Ross design in Greensboro?

He’s got nine top-11 finishes here since 2010, including a win, two seconds, and a pair of thirds. Just something to keep in mind as you’re penciling in Wyndham Championship betting picks in 2021.

Wyndham Championship Sleeper Picks

Jim Herman ranked 318th in the world at the time, emerged at the 2020 Wyndham Championship. The year before, J.T. Poston played bogey-free golf for 72 holes en route to hoisting the trophy at Sedgefield CC. Poston was ranked 158th in the OWGR upon his arrival.

The point being, this is a golf course that caters to anyone and any style – not just the bombers and the favorites.

Here are two under-the-radar names I’ve got my eye on this week.

Doc Redman (+10000)

Preceding Doc’s T3 at the 2020 Wyndham Championship, the Clemson product had made six of his last eight cuts (made five in a row, missed two, made one). Entering the 2021 edition, Redman has again connected on six of his last eight cuts (five in a row, missed two, made one).

Perhaps these parallels are nothing more than a coincidence, but hey, it’s something.

Redman finished runner-up at Congaree in June and can take lots of positives away from his performance last week in Truckee. Doc hit nearly 79% of his fairways on his way to carding 20 birdies at the Barracuda Championship (T49).

Brandon Hagy (+10000)

Looking for an outsider strolling in with some positive vibes? Look no further than Brandon Hagy. The California native kicked off the month of July, finishing 6th at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He followed with a T18 at the John Deere Classic. Most recently, he finished solo-5th at the Barracuda Championship.

Coming off a blistering 63 on Sunday that included seven birdies and an eagle, Hagy is on the verge of putting it all together. Brandon paced the field in driving distance last week, averaging an eye-popping 362.3 yards per poke; he ended the tournament ranked 3rd in GIR (77.8%).

Priced at +9000 to win at most of the best sites to bet on golf, head to SportsBetting.ag where Hagy is lurking at +10000.

Top-20 Finish – Brian Harman (-115)

One of the Wyndham Championship predictions I’m all over is Brian Harman notching a top-20 finish. Already armed with 11 of them on the season, the 34-year-old is a solid week away from vaulting inside the top-30 in the FedEx Cup standings.

Harman’s ability to fill it up on the greens makes him a serious candidate to contend at this venue.

Ranked 8th in total driving efficiency and 4th in total putting, Harman can cook up the perfect recipe to prosper at this week’s par-70 track. The diminutive lefty finished 6th here in 2019 and 27th in 2020; in 2021, he’ll tee it up, seeking his 10th top-20 in his last 13 starts.

Matchup Bet – Kevin Na (-110) Over Si Woo Kim   

Si Woo Kim made news for carding a 13 on a par 3 last week at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. That was one really bad hole, but it’s worth noting that Kim shot 13-over par over the weekend in Memphis.

That’s now six straight starts without recording a top-30 finish for the 26-year-old South Korean.

On the flip side, Kevin Na has finished 2nd-23rd over his last two starts. Talk about a confident golfer, Na was calmly walking in chips on Sunday at TPC Southwind.

The PGA Tour’s leader in SG: Around-the-Green is locked and loaded for a productive week in Greensboro. I can’t say the same for Si Woo.

2021 Wyndham Championship Pick to Win

Harris English is resting after faltering down the stretch. Hudson Swafford is here, and I already pegged Brian Harman to register a top-20. Staying on theme with players who were part of the 2008-09 Georgia men’s golf team, I’ll round out my Wyndham Championship picks with a nod to Russell Henley.

Henley MC’d his last time out at the Open Championship, but check out Russell’s recent game log on this side of the pond.

Russell Henley – Last Three Starts on US Soil
Date Tournament Finish
6/20/21 US Open T13
6/27/21 Travelers Championship T19
7/11/21 John Deere Classic T11

Henley clocks in 4th on the PGA Tour in SG: Approach, he’s 13th in scrambling, plus he’s 19th in par-3 scoring and 6th in par-4 scoring – a couple of stats that bode well at a golf course with only two par-5s.

Still not convinced that Russell makes sense at +3500?

69-64-67-68-68-68-63-65

Those are Henley’s last eight rounds at Sedgefield CC dating back to 2019. Enough said.
