5 Under Par – Daily Fantasy Golf – Wyndham Championship

reed-patrick-justine-trophy-081813-640x360

We are in my state and only a ride away from my hometown this weekend. Golfers will tee it up at the Wyndham Championship and I will actually get a chance to be there on Saturday. Now i’m not saying I will be in a luxury tent, but I will be in a luxury tent with free beer. It should be a great time and should make for some great golf over the course of the weekend for daily fantasy golf players.

We are in Greensboro, NC this week (even though it is technically closer to Jamestown, NC). Golfers will tackle the Sedgefield Country Club course. The course plays at 7,127 yards and a Par 70. Davis Love III was last years surprise winner, but will not return this year to defend his title. To make the 5 Under picks this week I used the following metrics: Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, Strokes Gained: Putting, Greens in Regulation, Driving Accuracy, Birdie Average and Scrambling.

The weather forecast doesn’t look that bad. However, around these parts in August a pop up evening thunderstorm can’t be ruled out. This article and my picks are being brought to you by Tour Golf Revolution, the site that let’s you “Reinvent League Golf.”

1. Patrick Reed – Reed sets up nicely on this course and has won here before. He posted a top 25 last year and a win in 2013. His game can carry him to victory here.

2. Jim Furyk – Furyk posted a T-9 in 2011 and is another guy that fits this course. He has been playing with a vengeance since coming off of injury. I look for his consistency to put him in contention over the weekend.

3. Rickie Fowler - Fowler hasn’t played in this tournament yet, but he will be one of the focal points this week. He should be a popular play, but rightfully so as he can win any week.

4. Webb Simpson – This is a homecoming for Webb, as he went to college only 20 minutes down the road. He has been extremely consistent at Sedgefield and won in 2011. He hasn’t missed the cut since 2009 and should be a guarantee for a top 10.

5. Brandt Snedeker – Sneds won here since 2007, but has been hit or miss since then. He has the ability to to play well here, if his putting is on then he get find himself with the trophy on Sunday.
