2019 PGA Wyndham Championship Golf Preview, Betting Tips & Live Stream


The PGA Tour resumes its summer schedule at the 2019 Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. Ahead of the first tee shot on Thursday, we take a look at the leading contenders, see which outsiders might be worth backing and select our best tips.

  • Jordan Spieth (17.00)
  • Collin Morikawa (19.00)
  • Paul Casey (21.00)

2019 PGA Wyndham Championship Top Contenders


Webb Simpson (11.00)


The champion in 2011, a joint runner-up 12 months ago and playing tournament-winning golf this season without quite getting over the line - little wonder Webb Simpson is priced as the pre-tournament favourite. The American arrives at the Wyndham following a second-place at the WGC St Jude Invitational so his game is in superb shape and he is full of confidence.

Hideki Matsuyama (15.00)


Hideki Matsuyama has a mixed record at the Wyndham Championship, with a tied-third and two other top 15s from five visits. The other two results, though? Missed cuts. The Japanese No. 1 started well last week at WGC St Jude but faded after the first round. He certainly has the iron play to succeed around Sedgefield but his inconsistency means he's better off avoiding. 

Jordan Spieth (17.00)


It has been more than two years since Jordan Spieth won a title, going back to the 2017 British Open. However, after a frustrating spell, the three-time major winner looks to have turned a corner. Top-20s in his past two events follow three successive top-10s earlier in the summer. Spieth is still not quite at that all-conquering level of 2016, but he is trending in the direction of title-winning golf. It may have been six years since he played Sedgefield, but he did finish runner-up on that ocassion. We fancy Spieth to make a run at the title this week and he should place high.

Collin Morikawa (19.00)


Perhaps World No. 1 Brooks Koepka aside, is there anyone playing such incredible golf right now as Collin Morikawa? The 22-year-old rookie claimed his first PGA Tour title last week at the Barracuda Championship, which followed back-to-back top-five finishes at the 3M Open and John Deere Classic. Can he maintain this standard for another week? We're not so sure, and at this price, there is better value to be found elsewhere. 

Paul Casey (21.00)


Paul Casey is enjoying a typically consistent season with one title at the Valspar Championship, five top-10s and a further four top-20s. The Englishman has a solid record at the Wyndham Championship, placing tied-third in his last visit in 2015 and tied-18th in 2014. His most recent result was a tied-27th at the WGC St Jude. It's difficult to see Casey winning the tournament but he could get himself a top-20 finish.

2019 PGA Wyndham Championship Outsiders


Patrick Read (23.00)


Patrick Read's form is ticking along nicely this summer, with a tied-fifth at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, tied-10th at the British Open, and tied-12th last time out at WGC St Jude. The former US Masters winner is a former champion at the Wyndham Championship, winning the title in 2013.

Brandt Snedeker (26.00)


Unless a defending champion is hopelessly out of form, then I have a general rule to include them among the outsiders if they are not a top contender. Brandt Snedeker is a two-time winner at the Wyndham Championship, although the first of those wins came at Forest Oaks. The American has four top-20s in his past eight events, which combined with a return to a course that has brought him success, he should contend come Sunday.

Billy Horschel (29.00)


His struggles at the British Open aside, it has been a season of solid consistency from Billy Horschel, exemplified by his recent run of six top-20s in his past nine events. Horschel also has a good recent record at the Wyndham Championship, with a tied-fifth in 2016 and tied-11th last year.

Lucas Glover (51.00)


Lucas Glover has enjoyed a solid summer, with a tied-seventh, tied-10th, and tied-20th heading into the Wyndham Championships. He also has a strong record at Sedgefield with five top-25s in 10 previous visits and he shot a career-best 61 at the course in 2016. At these odds, he is worth considering for a top-20 finish.
