PGA TOUR: Wyndham Championship
The tight, tree-lined Sedgefield course is used for the tenth time in succession for this year’s event. The 7,100 yards long, par 70 course was originally designed by Donald Ross and recently extended with new Bermuda greens put in place. The fairways are generally tree-lined with dog-legs at 12 of the holes, water comes into play on seven holes and the greens are small and undulating. On the evidence of past years play players capable of driving it straight and shooting plenty of birdies have the best chance of winning here.
OUTRIGHT: Ryan Moore, 0.5 pts win and place 28/1 (1/4 odds 6 places)
Moore bounced back strongly from a mid-season shoulder injury to record a top thirty place finish at The WGC Bridgestone Invitational event two weeks ago then followed up with a notable tied thirteenth place finish last week on the unrelenting Quail Hollow course. That improvement in form bodes well for this week in an event where he has excellent recent course form which reads 1st in 09 and 10T in 15. He looks very fairly priced at these odds.
OUTRIGHT: Chez Reavie, 0.5 pts win and place 50/1 (1/4 odds 6 places)
Reavie could hardly be called a prolific winner but has recorded his only tour win in the 2000 Canadian Open. However he does have a chance this week in a relatively weak field on the back of a noteworthy finish of tied twenty-second last week taken in conjunction with course form of 10T in 09 and 9T in 11.
