The Money List: Best bets for the Wyndham Championship
After a 40/1 place and 18/1 winner in the past two weeks, our tipster is back with his golf tips for this week at Sedgefield.
Back to win: Rafa Cabrera-Bello –
The Wyndham looks like a good spot place win a first PGA Tour title for Cabrera-Bello, who finished fifth in his last appearance at this event in 2016.
The Spaniard has found form over the past fortnight with a T17 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and a T10 at last week’s PGA Championship, and his closing round of 64 at Bellerive shows just how well he’s playing heading into the Wyndham.
Sedgefield suits Cabrera-Bello’s game. He’s a Bermudagrass specialist, tends to perform well on shorter courses and currently ranks 13th from tee to green on the PGA Tour.
The 34-year-old’s T4 at last year’s Players Championship bodes well for his chances, as five of the last Wyndham champions had also won at TPC Sawgrass.
Each-way shout: Si Woo Kim –
Kim triumphed at this event in 2016 and also won last year’s Players Championship.
Like Cabrera-Bello, the Korean excels on Bermudagrass, and the relatively short Sedgefield masks his lack of length off the tee.
Kim missed the cut at Bellerive last week but finished T10 at the WGC-Bridgestone a fortnight ago, and the 23-year-old’s form is arguably irrelevant given that his last win here came after a T23-MC-T25 run.
At , the two-time PGA Tour winner is a generous price this week and is well worth an each-way bet.
Outside shot: Abraham Ancer –
Ancer has had an impressive season on the PGA Tour, with six top-20 finishes so far.
The Mexican has placed inside the top five in two of his last four starts, tying Tiger Woods in fourth at the Quicken Loans National at the start of July and placing fifth at the RBC Canadian Open later that month.
Ancer isn’t a particularly long driver but he ranks inside the top 25 in scrambling on the PGA Tour, which could be important this week as the small greens of Sedgefield are difficult to hit.
The 27-year-old is so talented that he’s almost certainly going to win a PGA Tour event soon enough, and he looks a decent outside bet this week at .
