The Mulligan: Wyndham Championship

This week the Tour heads to Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship.  Sedgefield is a Par 70 measuring 7130 yards.  This course normally plays easy and scores in the high teens or even low twenties under par should not be surprising.  The Wyndham Championship is also the last event before the PGA Playoffs begin, so players on the cusp of the Top 125 will have a lot to prove this week.

I think Lucas Glover will have a good week in Greensboro.  He has never really cooled down from his US Open performance and he finished 2nd place last week at the PGA.  Glover also has a history of playing well here.  He finished T20 each of the past 2 years at this event.  A South Carolina native, Glover should have the hometown crowd behind him all week too.  Glover likes this course and he has momentum coming in so this could be a good week for him.

David Toms should have a good week this week as well.  Toms has seven Top-10 finishes this season and he is ranked 2nd on Tour in driving accuracy.  He has three 2nd place finishes but no victories in 2009.  Some experts think he is due this week to finally get a win this year.  Either way, I think Toms will find himself in contention again this week.

Finally, I think Tim Clark will play well this week.  Clark finished T29 two weeks ago at Bridgestone, and T16 last week at the PGA so his game is in decent shape.  He has three straight Top 25 finishes at this event, including two 6th place finishes in the last three years.  Clark is consistent on this course and he is playing well.  I like his chances this week.

Sleeper Pick: Michael Letzig has had a pretty good season in 2009.  He finished in the Top 10 in both the Buick Open and the RBC Canadian Open, his last two starts on Tour.  He has 3 straight Top 25 finishes and 9 straight cuts made.  He has proven he can play at this event as well because he finished T-9th here last year.  Don't be surprised if you see Letzig's name on the leaderboard, or if he improves on last years good finish.

Good luck this week and let's keep moving to the top of the fantasy golf rankings!
