The Wyndham Championship

Sedgefield Country Club is the home of the Wyndham Championship, formerly the Greater Greensboro Open until the new title sponsor changed in 2007. Because of its position on the calendar as the last tournament before the playoffs, the Wyndham Championship has become very popular for players over the course of the last several seasons with the FedEx Cup.

Players know that the more points they have, the further they will advance into the playoffs. By the time the Wyndham Championship rolls around, players will be eager to get into the playoffs, or get as high as they possibly can.

The winner will receive 500 FedEx Cup points, and just under $1 million in first-prize money.

What Happened In 2012?

A familiar name was atop the leaderboard at the 2012 Wyndham Championship, with Sergio Garcia getting his first win in 2012 in the middle of August. Garcia won by two shots over Tim Clark and three shots of Bud Cauley. Garcia shot all four rounds in the 60s, including a 63 during Friday's round. Garcia finished the week second in the field in putting and 12th in driving accuracy. And when you are ranked that high in putting, greens in regulation aren't quite as important. But he finished 26th and that is a recipe for a PGA Tour victory.

The 2013 Wyndham Championship

The last opportunity to accumulate points for the FedEx Cup Playoffs takes place this week at the Wyndham Championship. Players in the field will be trying to increase their playoff standings, or vying for a spot in the top-125, who make the first playoff tournament at The Barclays next week.

The PGA Tour is coming off of the final Major Championship of the season, as Jason Dufner claimed the PGA Championship from Oak Hill by two shots over Jim Furyk. Dufner will not be in the field this week for the Wyndham Championship, but there will be plenty of players who fans will recognize.

Sedgefield Country Club will provide a stern test for those players teeing it up this week. Like Oak Hill, this is also a Par-70 layout that stretches more than 7,100 yards. But it's the greens that really make things difficult, as they are among the smallest that players see all year long.

Sergio Garcia won last year at the Wyndham for his first PGA Tour win in four years. Garcia will be in the field this week, where he is a top-five favorite to contend. But he is not at the very top of the list of Wyndham Championship favorites. Check out who oddsmakers think the players to beat are this week, seven days prior to the FedEx Cup Playoffs beginning.

Odds To Win 2013 Wyndham Championship

Brandt Snedeker & Webb Simpson 14/1 (+14000) - Snedeker didn't have a good week at the PGA Championship, but he won just three weeks ago at the RBC Canadian Open and is No.3 on the FedEx Cup point standings. He has won twice this season and a victory this week heading into the playoffs would put him in second position behind Tiger Woods. As for Simpson, he put himself in contention going into the weekend at Oak Hill with a course-record 64 (at the time until Dufner). But he was unable to break par on the weekend and finished 25th. Oddsmakers obviously like the way that Simpson is swinging the golf club coming in though.

Zach Johnson 16/1 (+1600) - Johnson is working off of four-straight top-10 finishes, which includes a T6 in the British open and a T8 at the PGA Championship. Let's not forget about the runner-up finish at the John Deere Classic and a T4 at the WGC Bridgestone. Other than maybe Henrik Stenson, there hasn't been a more consistent performer since mid-July.

Bill Haas & Sergio Garcia 18/1 (+1800) - Haas won at the end of June when he claimed the AT&T National, and since that win he has another two top-10 finishes to his credit, including a T7 at the Bridgestone. Haas finished T25 at the PGA Championship last week, but has turned it on in the past right at the end of the year, which is why he won the FedEx Cup in 2011. Garcia we said earlier is the defending champion so he is certainly expected to play well here. But since his near-win at the PLAYERS Championship in May, Garcia hasn't recorded a top-20 finish. After shooting 69-68 on Thursday and Friday at the PGA Championship to get in contention, he closed 75-76 on the weekend to finish T61.

Wyndham Championship Winner - It's hard to predict who will play well after an exhausting week at a Major Championship. Players tend to put a little more extra effort into trying to win one of those. As such, playing the following week can have an effect, which could favor those who weren't in the field. But then again there would be a reason for them not being in the field. PGABettingOdds.com is going to go with consistency this week, and predict Zach Johnson to become a multi-time winner in 2013 with his second victory.

Darkhorse Value Bet - It's crunch time for some players looking at the FedEx Cup standings. For three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington, he sits at 128th on the FedEx Cup point standings. He needs to play well to get into the Barclays, and we think that he could be a player to watch out for, knowing what's at stake.
