Well, the 2012 Major championship slate came to an end on Sunday, and what a performance it was by Rory McIlroy at Kiawah Island. Two Major championship victories by a combined 16 shots is definitely impressive. Now, the PGA Tour gets set to shift to their playoff series. But before that, we have one more week.
This week the 2012 Wyndham Championship will be played from Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Webb Simpson comes in as the defending champion. And since that victory a year ago, just about every golf fan knows who this guy is if they didn’t before the 2012 U.S Open. Simpson’s victory at the U.S Open back in June certainly rocketed him up the status of who’s who in the game.
There will be the final 500 FedEx Cup points to the winner this week, as players will try to stamp their spot in the playoffs field beginning next week.
Simpson has been set as one of the favorites to win the tournament this week, but he is not at the top. That title goes to Jason Dufner, who is arguably the player of the year in 2012. Dufner has two victories, and numerous top-10’s. He, along with Tiger Woods, has probably been the most consistent player on Tour this year.
Dufner has been set at 11/1 on Wyndham Championship Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook to get his third victory of the 2012 season. Simpson is not very far behind though, going off at 12/1.
Carl Pettersson was in contention last week at the PGA championship, leading after the first two rounds. But no one could keep up with McIlroy on Sunday. Pettersson has been slated at 18/1.
A lot of the big names are taking this week off to prepare for the playoffs, but we still have a solid field. Brandt Snedeker and Charl Schwartzel come in next in line, going off at 25/1 respectively, rounding out the top-five favorites.
