Fantasy Golf: Wyndham Championship

Published:

The PGA Tour resumes this week for the Wyndham Championship, but who should be on your Fantasy golf team?

Justin Thomas was the man on top at the PGA Championship last week to join Sergio Garcia, Brooks Koepka and good friend Justin Thomas on this year's roster of major winners  - so it's no surprise he's taking this week off. 

In fact, with the FedExCup playoffs just around the corner, most of the World's top 20 players are skipping the Wyndham Championship - but there is still a quality field of players that have a lot lower values in the fantasy golf game than those like Spieth and Garcia.

This week in Fantasy golf it's all about the PGA Tour as the European Tour hosts the Paul Lawrie Matchplay in Germany, so be focusing purely on players like Kevin Kisner, Chris stroud and Henrik Stenson - who is the only one of the Worlds top 10 to be playing this week. 

The PGA Championship's final pairing of Kisner and Stroud are both dropped out of contention on Sunday last week, but they still notched up top 10s and as winners already this season, it will come as no big surprise if they continue their good form.

But who should be in your fantasy team this week?

Fantasy Picks: Wyndham Championship

Henrik Stenson: Fantasy Price £15m
Last year's Open Champion struggled at the start of the year, but he has really gained momentum in his last few events. A T13 at the PGA Championship was preceeded by a T17 at the WGC Bridgestone and T11 at the The Open. It could well be his week!

Kevin Kisner: Fantasy Price £12m
There is certainly room for debate that he may struggle to get over last week's heartache having led for most of the final major of the year, but Kisner has a good record at the Wyndham Championship. He's already had a win this year, and with top 10s in his last two outings here ('16 & '14) it could well be a week where he comes out on top.

Webb Simpson: Fantasy Price £10m
With an impressive final round 69 at the PGA Championship, Simpson could be a real contender this week. He's been pretty consistent this season and come fairly close to being really good in the last few weeks. His last four results? T33-T37-T14-T8

Smylie Kaufman: Fantasy Price £9m
Prior to his withdrawl at the Baracuda Championships, Kaufman had finally found a bit of form. His previous two results had been T27 and T12 - and spurred on by being newly engaged and motivation from his two friends winning back-to-back majors, he could be a real factor this week. 

Scott BrownFantasy Price £7m
With the exception of his second place finish in the team-event Zurich Classicc earlier this year, it's been a pretty mixed bag of results for Brown with scatterings of top 15s and missed cuts. That being said, he finished T13 at the final major of the year - so with a low fantasy price he might just be worth a bet this week. 

Bud CauleyFantasy Price £7m
With a low fantasy price, Cauley is a good bet. He finished T33 last week but still waited by the green for his good friend Justin Thomas to finish - and it would come as no surprise if he motivated by it this week. Cauley had an astonishing four top 10s in a row earlier this season, and while his form tailed off slightly, it looks to be back on track with a T35 and T12 as his last two results.

Chris Stroud: Fantasy Price £6m
Stroud won the Barracuda Championship to get in to the final major of the year, and then found himself in the final group on Sunday with a chance at the PGA Championship title. He didn't get it done and faded towards the end, but he still put on a show of incredible golf. Unsure if he can retain momentum for three weeks in a row though, so we'll leave this up to you.

Sam Saunders: Fantasy Price £5m
Saunders had a brilliant couple of weeks back in March and April before tailing off slightly, but with a T8 finish at the Barracuda Championship a couple of weeks ago and a T19 the previous week - he is definitely trending back in the right direction.
