Wyndham Championship Betting Picks (Outrights)

  • Si Woo Kim (+2000)
  • Denny McCarthy (+2200)
  • Billy Horschel (+6000)
  • Adam Schenk (+7000)

Si Woo Kim (+2000)

Si Woo Kim, fresh off of two missed cuts, is still rating out in the top 10 in modeling this week. He has had one of the better all-around seasons of his career. Kim has four T10s this season with a runner-up and a win. He has made 18/23 cuts and has gained strokes on every metric except putting this season. Kim is a volatile putter and will need to find it this week to compete. Still, even in his win this season he was flat to the field in strokes gained putting. He did it all on approach and being accurate off of the tee.

Off the tee and approach may be slightly more important at the Wyndham Championship. This is a course that relies heavily on approach with previous winners gaining most of their edge there. Kim continues to be a force in all-around ball striking, and these greens and fairways are above Tour average in being hit in regulation. Kim rates out incredibly well from the 150-175 yard range, which is where the majority of his second shots will come from. If he finds a couple of putts here and there, we are in business.

Denny McCarthy (+2200)

On the opposite side of that profile is Denny McCarthy who dominates with his flat stick but is somewhat average at approach. McCarthy typically is flat to the field on approach. He does, however, gain 5.8 strokes to the field on average with his putter. With larger-than-normal green complexes and McCarthy’s excellence in putting and avoiding three putts, we may have just the right setup for him at the Wyndham Championship.

This course has proven to work in his favor, finishing in the top 20 twice over the last three years. He does have a missed cut here in that time, but that is proof that if the putter isn’t working, he is not going to compete. On the bright side, he has only lost strokes putting three times the entire season, and he has not lost strokes anywhere else on the course over his last 20 rounds. He is in good form, and I love him to keep rolling the rock at Sedgefield this week.

Billy Horschel (+6000)

Billy Horschel is a bit of a feel play, but I liked what I saw over the last three starts, and he seems to be finding his swing. I realize that one of those starts was a missed cut, and another was a 65th-place finish. However, he did pull it together last week at the 3m Open with a 13th place finish, and I would argue that course is somewhat similar to Sedgefield. The Wyndham Championship has less water and less trouble, though.

Statistically, Horschel gained 3.5 strokes off the tee and 3.5 strokes on the greens at the 3M Open. I would expect that to continue here, as this is one of the easiest courses these golfers see all year. Horschel is not known as an elite approach player, but he is excellent from 150-175 out, rating out 17th over the last 24 rounds. If Horschel finds the fairway as often as he typically does and keeps his putter going, he is very live to compete here. That approach range is his sweet spot! This might be the perfect setup for hitting the “Billy Ho” outright!

Adam Schenk (+7000)

Adam Schenk is on a bit of a roll with four T10s in his last seven starts. The other three finishes were missed cuts, though, so you are definitely seeing a number that reflects the risk with him. He burnt a lot of people at The Open, so I understand people who are hesitant to go back to him.

Still, his stats over the last 24 rounds are just too good to ignore. He is No. 2 in overall approach, No. 1 in approach from 150-175, No. 3 in three-putt avoidance, No. 1 in par-5 scoring and No. 3 in par-3 scoring in this field (including the missed cuts). He is on fire outside of those appearances.

His off-the-tee game can be a little suspect occasionally, but even that has been slightly positive from a shots-gained perspective. Again, this is one of the easiest courses they see all year. I love Schenk this week and can see him getting the win here at the Wyndham Championship. I will be rostering him heavily in DFS this week, as well!
