Fantasy League: Wyndham Championship preview

Published:

Straight off the back of the excitement of Keegan Bradley's win at the USPGA Championship, the Today's Golfer Fantasy League is staying in America for the Wyndham Championship.

The field lacks the majority of the star names of the last two weeks so it will really test your knowledge of the middle and lower echelons of the PGA Tour.

But with it being the last week before the lucrative FedEx Cup play-offs, a lot of players are hoping to consolidate their position or push into the top 125 qualifiers, including Ernie Els, Ian Poulter, Retief Goosen and Paul Casey.

Sedgefield Country Club is one of the lowest-scoring courses on the PGA Tour, ranking as the easiest par 70 in 2008 and 2010. It is likely to be a shootout on the greens so favour players who are good with the putter and make plenty of birdies.

TG's six-man Fantasy League team for the Wyndham Championship is:

Brendon de Jonge, $1.2m
The Zimbabwean is on impressive form. He continued a run of T7-T13-T4 with a T26 at the USPGA that pushed him into the top 100 in the world. Ranks 26th in birdie average.

Jim Furyk, $3.0m
Last season's FedEx Cup champion has endured a difficult campaign to this point, but he showed signs of a return to form last week, thanks largely to using a long putter. A quality player in an average field.

Lucas Glover, $1.6m
Already has a win to his name this season and hasn't finished outside the top 25 in three starts at Sedgefield. Ranks highly in strokes gained putting and birdie average.

Bill Haas, $1.8m
His form fell away in the middle of the summer after a blistering start to the season, but it's returning just in time for the play-offs with a runner-up finish at The Greenbrier three weeks ago and a T12 last week. Shot a 62 on this course in 2009.

Charles Howell III, $1.0m
The world number 84 hasn't missed a cut in eight starts, including three top fives and a lowest finish of T32. Closed out last week with a 68.

David Toms, $1.3m
Toms makes it into the TG team for the second week running for good reason. The resurgent American followed a top 10 at the Bridgestone Invitational with a T4 at the USPGA. He's one of the best putters on Tour and got the winning feeling back at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in May.
