Who do you think will win the Wyndham Championship this week?
I narrowed it down to Sergio Garcia, Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson, Bill Haas and Brandt Snedeker. After a lot of internal debate I rolled with Snedeker and here is a summary of what I liked:
Brandt is having a very solid year. In fact he made the cut in 13 of 17 events in 2013. Of those 13 he has 11 top-25s, eight top-10s, a third and two second place finishes. Oh and then of course are his two wins at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the RBC Canadian Open. In his career at the Wyndham Championship he racked up a tie for 28th in 2012, tie for eighth in 2010, tie for fifth in 2009 and won the event in 2007. He did not play well last week at the PGA Championship but that has not stopped him from playing well at Sedgefield Country Club. He likes this course and it appears being past the final major eases his mind.
In 2013 Brandt is 10th in strokes gained putting, fourth in birdie average, ninth in scoring average, second in the all-around and third in par breakers. He has the game to conquer the Wyndham Championship and has proven it already. The undulating greens at Sedgefield Country Club will challenge many of the professionals this week but Snedeker’s incredible putting stroke will be the key to mastering these greens once again. I expect Snedeker to have a solid final regular season event culminating in a victory with a full court press into the Fed Ex Cup playoffs in defense of his title.
What does everyone else think? It was hard to rule a few guys out but at the end of the day we have to make a call right?
