Doc’s Top Five Bets At The 2016 Wyndham Championship


Bill Haas 28/1


Rested and ready for the big money conclusion to the PGA Tour season I fancy Wake Forest graduate Bill Haas to go strong this week.  Topped the GIR stats in 2014 when tying second to Camilo Villegas and followed that with a T6 again last year.  Indeed Haas hasn’t been outside the top 20 in his last four starts at Sedgefield and though a T56 last time out at Baltusrol didn’t excite and T9 at Troon and T3 at the Quicken Loans says Haas can do again do a late season smash and grab.

Brandt Snedeker 25/1


If Davis Love can come to Greensboro and win aged 51 then surely a careful tidy and circumspect on the greens Brandt Snedeker has a chance here.  Actually Sneds has won this event before in 2007 at Forest Oaks (it moved to Sedgefield the following year) and has three top 10’s since including a T5 in 2014.  A winner this year at The Farmers and a recent best of T5 in Canada.

Webb Simpson 25/1


Big chance for the local lad and also Wake Forest alumni to go well this week.  In his last six starts in this tournament Simpson has five top-11 finishes including a win in 2011.  Solid recent form too with highs including a T13 at Baltusrol, solo 6th at Congressional and T11 at Muirfield Village.  Lying in 25th behind some big names for a Ryder Cup spot, I think golf and not text messaging is likely to be his only route onto the team this year.

Will McGirt 33/1


Memorial Tournament winner and the very likeable Will McGirt also comes home to North Carolina this week. Since that win McGirt has added a T7 at the WGC Bridgestone and T10 at the PGA Championship and with a new found confidence has the game to really have a good run this week.  Scored a T8 on his debut here in 2014 and his T14 last season included an opening round of 62.  Every chance of an each way place.

Ben Martin 50/1


Ben’s solo second last week at the John Deere Classic included a moving day 62 and he’s sure to be full of confidence heading into what must feel like a home tie this week.  It’s less than three hours drive from his home in Greensville, South Carolina to Greensboro and with a T10 on his debut at the event last year I expect Ben Martin to feature this week.

Long Odds Glory Shots


Jerry Kelly 110/1 remains one of my favourite players on Tour and it was great to see him score a solo second recently at The Travelers.  Since this event moved to Sedgefield in 2008 Kelly has T9, T4 and T18 finishes on his record.  Missed the cut last week but it wont be a surprise to see Kelly be this year’s DL3.

Cameron Smith 150/1 is improving  in form with a T34 at The Travelers and T22 at the John Deere and I’m always drawn to players who go under par cumulatively on the par threes, fours and fives. T18 here on his debut last year, I expect Cam to go better this week.
