It is Wednesday night which means it’s time to shift our focus to the PGA!
After a great PGA Championship last week, the PGA is right back in action this week with the Wyndham Championship.
The Wyndham Championship will be taking place at Sedgefield Country Clube in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Sedgefield is a short course in terms of today’s standards as it is just a Par 70 playing at just above 7100 yards. It is one of the easier courses that the PGA your will be playing this season and we should be expecting a ton of birdies. I am going to be targeting solid iron players this week.
As for the weather, I’m not currently seeing any advantages with trying to target the AM or PM groups on Thursday/Friday.
Let us look at our DraftKings lineup.
I initially had Webb Simpson as my top ranked golfer this week, however, there has been some reports that he might have a slight rib injury. It looks like he still is going to play as of right now and if it is minor, I think he still has a great chance to win, however, I’m not taking any chances. If this were a major, it sounds like it’s something he would play through (which he still might), however, I can see he gets off to a slow start and has any discomfort, that he could withdraw early.
Instead, the trio of high-priced golfers we are going to go with include Paul Casey, Harris English, and Brendon Todd.
I was a week too early on Paul Casey, but he certainly looks back in form after an impressive 2nd place finish at the PGA Championship last week. Casey is a great iron player and should be able to dominate this course.
Harris English and Brendon Todd have been playing great golf over the last month and like Casey, are led by their solid iron play.
Rounding out our team, we are going to be going with Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Denny McCarthy, and Kyle Stanley.
