Wyndham Championship Picks, Predictions, Odds

We won’t see Tony Finau potentially win three tournaments in a row after he opted to rest ahead of the FedEx Cup Playoffs next week. Finau claimed the 3M Open and the Rocket Mortgage Classic over the last two weeks, shooting up the FedEx Cup Rankings leaderboard in the process. Many of the top golfers are also opting for rest ahead of the three-week postseason, but every middle of the pack golfer will be taking part in the 2022 Wyndham Championship in order to potentially qualify for the lucrative FedEx Cup Playoffs where every tournament has a $15 million prize pool.

The 2022 Wyndham Championship is the last event of the 2021-22 PGA Tour regular season. It will take place from August 4-7, 2022, from the Ross Course on Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. It is one of the oldest PGA Tour events as it was founded in 1938.  

  • Will Zalatoris to win the Wyndham Championship (+1600)
  • Russell Henley Top 5 Finish (+600)
  • Taylor Pendrith Top 20 Finish (+250)


Although Will Zalatoris failed to deliver last week, he is still the best bet to win the Wyndham Championship this weekend. Zalatoris wasn’t too impressive on Thursday and Friday at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, just finishing ahead of the cut line, but he had a solid 69 on Saturday before closing out with a blistering 65 on Sunday for a T20 finish at the event.

The 2020-21 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year has yet to win an event on the tour, yet he has been painfully close with three T2 finishes and eight T10 finishes this season. Zalatoris went 68-68-65-69 here last year on his way to a T30 performance, and he has the game to thrive at Sedgefield CC. He currently ranks 15th in driving distance and 9th in GIR.


There’s plenty to like about Russell Henley ahead of the Wyndham Championship this weekend. Henley just finished T10 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week, and he has two straight T10 performances at Sedgefield. Henley led this tournament through 18-, 36-, and 54-holes last year, but a disappointing 71 on the final day led to a T7.

Henley has four rounds of 65 or better at the last two Wyndham Championship events. The Georgia native is used to courses in the Southeast, and he ranks 6th in GIR. His short game has been a problem, but he has the potential to win the tournament if he is even an average putter this weekend.


Taylor Pendrith is coming off his best performance of the year at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He was tied for the lead going into Sunday after shooting 64-65-66 in the first three rounds, but he faltered and finished five shots back of Finau.

Pendrith didn’t play for four months because of a rib injury, but he has three straight T13 finishes since his return last month. This is the rookie’s first appearance at the Wyndham Championship, and he has the tools to perform very well at Sedgefield.
