2021 Wyndham Open Betting Preview

The last tournament before the FedEx Cup Playoffs – the 2021 Wyndham Open – tees off this Thursday with an interesting field of golfers competing for one last win during the 50 PGA Tour event “Super Season” that is about to conclude. Get ready for the golf action with our 2021 Wyndham Open betting preview

Wyndham Open 2021 Betting Picks 

Although not always the most extensive field of golfers (or at least biggest name golfers), the Wyndham Open is a shockingly important golf tournament. Why? It is the last chance for any golfer to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs

Some golfers, firmly in the top-30, top-70, or a top-125 ranking, skip the event, but for the guys not locked into a spot, a chance to compete in the FedEx Cup Playoffs and $60 million prize pool is quite motivating. Other guys want to compete for one final tune-up before the golf postseason.

Sedgefield Country Club a Signature Course for Favourite Webb Simpson

Excluding his first outing at the North Carolina golf course (and a rough go of it in 2016), Webb Simpson has played some of the best golf of his career at Sedgefield Country Club. Webb Simpson won the event in 2011 shooting -18. He has matched that score or shot better from 2017 to 2020 (with three -18s and a -21). In those four years, he finished second twice and third the other two appearances.

Simpson also has three more top-10 finishes at the event (2010, 201

4, and 2015). His skills translate well to the course. Over his last eight rounds, he shot 66 or better every time. In his career at the course, he has nine rounds of 64 or less. 

It is understandable why he is the golf betting odds favourite here. A win here should also be huge for his finish in the FedEx Cup standings. Simpson sits 292 points back of a top-30 finish in the FedEx. A win at the Wyndham Open nets a player 500 points, guaranteeing him a spot in the top 30. Ride with Webb to win this weekend.

Louis Oosthuizen – Highest Ranked Golfer Without a Win this Year

Betting on Louis Oosthuizen is a bet on “who is the best golfer in the world this year without a win.” Oosthuizen ranks eighth on the FedEx Cup Standings and is the only golfer 500 or fewer points back from the leader (Collin Morikawa) without a win.

Oosthuizen has never played at the Wyndham Open – usually taking the week off already locked into a spot in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. He is locked into the top-30 again this year, but without a victory, he wants to end the regular season on a high note. 

Oosthuizen is the top putter – in strokes gained putting – on the PGA Tour. He also ranks high in going for the green – hit green percentage (29.91, eighth on the Tour) and strokes gained: approach the green. If he plays the few par 5s well (where driving distance is less critical than approach accuracy on the second shot) and he putts like we have seen all year, he could win his first PGA Tour win since the 2010 Open Championship.

Tommy Fleetwood at +4000 is our choice for Best Underdog Wager

Tommy Fleetwood is going into the Wyndham Tournament, sitting in 136th place on the FedEx Cup standings. However, unlike the majority of the guys ahead of him, he has only played 17 events on the PGA Tour this season (only Adam Scott and Matt Wallace are ranked between 100 and 136 and played less than 20 events). 

Last year, Fleetwood made his debut at Sedgefield and Wyndham Championship. He played an excellent first three rounds, going into the Sunday at nine under par. However, he sputtered on the Sunday, shooting a 74 to finish -5 for the tournament. The first three rounds were promising, though, especially the 64 in the second round

Fleetwood’s biggest strength is strokes gained around the green. He ranks 17th on the Tour at .359 (in comparison, Webb Simpson is seventh at .419). It is an excellent golfing stat to have as a strength at a course that ranks just outside the top-10 shortest courses on the PGA Tour.
