Wyndham Championship Betting Odds Preview
This week the PGA Tour stops at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, for the Wyndham Championship.
At Bovada Sportsbook, the co-favorites this week are Shane Lowry and Sungjae Im at +1600.
This will be Lowry’s first tournament since last month’s British Open where he tied for 21st place. He hasn’t played many PGA Tour events this season but has recorded three top-three finishes.
Lowry, Im share best odds to win Wyndham title
Im tied for second in the 3M Open two weeks ago. That was his fifth top-10 finish of the year. His last win on tour came back in October in the Shriners Children’s Open. In last year’s Wyndham Championship, he tied for 24th place after previously posting three straight top-10 finishes in the Wyndham.
The top-ranked player in the field this week is Will Zalatoris at +1800. Currently ranked No. 14 in the world, he is coming off a mediocre showing in last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, tying for 20th place. Zalatoris is still looking for his first win of 2022 but he has come extremely close on several occasions with three second-place finishes and nine top-10 finishes overall. At last year’s Wyndham Championship, he tied for 29th place.
Kisner won 2021 tournament in six-man playoff
The winner of the Wyndham last year was Kevin Kisner. He shot 15 under par and won a bloated playoff that also included Branden Grace, Si-Woo Kim, Kevin Na, Adam Scott and Roger Sloan. That was Kisner’s fourth PGA Tour win. He missed the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week and has missed the cut in five of his last seven tournaments. At Bovada, he is a +4000 underdog to repeat as Wyndham champ.
Also returning from last year’s six-person playoff are Kim, Scott and Sloan. Kim, who won the Wyndham in 2016, has not won on the tour this season and is still looking for his first top-10 finish. He is listed at +2500. Scott has cracked the top 10 only once, at the Genesis Invitational back in February, while Sloan, who is searching for his first PGA Tour win, has missed the cut in eight of his last 11 tour events. Scott is listed at +3300 and Sloan at +50000.
Finau not in field after second consecutive win
Last week on the tour, Tony Finau recorded his second straight victory, winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic by five strokes over Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Young and Taylor Pendrith. Luckily for the rest of the field this weekend, Finau will not be playing in the Wyndham. The top finisher from last week in the Wyndham field is Pendrith, who is a +5000 underdog.
Along with Kisner and Kim, other former winners of the Wyndham returning to North Carolina this weekend include 2020 winner Jim Herman (+50000), 2019 winner J.T. Poston (+4000), 2014 winner Camilo Villegas (+20000) and three-time winner Davis Love III (+100000).
