The Wyndham Championship is a professional golf tournament in North Carolina on the PGA Tour. It is played annually in Greensboro and was originally the Greater Greensboro Open.
The event has been played in the Greensboro area for its entire history. In its first four years, it was played at both Sedgefield Country Club and Starmount Forest Country Club. During World War II, it shifted solely to Starmount Forest in 1942, and was not held in 1943 and 1944. Starting in 1945, it alternated between Starmount Forest and Sedgefield until 1952, when Starmount Forest hosted for consecutive years.
It returned to Sedgefield in 1953 before Starmount Forest hosted for three consecutive years, (through 1956). Sedgefield hosted in 1957 and Starmount Forest hosted for another three straight years from 1958–60, then back to Sedgefield from 1961 to 1976. It shifted to Forest Oaks Country Club from 1977 to 2007, then returned to Sedgefield in 2008. The course at Sedgefield was designed by noted architect Donald Ross; it opened 96 years ago in 1926 and was restored in 2007.
SEDGEFIELD COUNTRY CLUB
Sedgefield Country Club is a country club in the eastern United States, located in Greensboro, North Carolina, southwest of the city centre. Established in 1925, it is primarily known for its golf course and the PGA Tour event it has held since 2008: the Wyndham Championship, formerly the Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic, and the Greater Greensboro Open (GGO). It also hosted the tournament from 1938 to 1976 (alternating some years with Starmount Forest Country Club).
The course was designed by Donald Ross and opened for play in 1926. Along with Detroit Golf Club, they are currently the only two Ross-designed courses hosting a regular event on the PGA Tour. The Ross course consisted of Bent-grass greens until a major $3 million restoration project initiated in 2007, which added Champion Bermuda greens and restored its rolling fairways.

The Wales Open is a professional golf tournament on the European Tour played at the Celtic Manor Resort. It was played annually from 2000 to 2014, as part of a 15-year deal between the tour and the Celtic Manor Resort that included staging the 2010 Ryder Cup. The event was not held from 2015 to 2019 but returned in 2020, following a revamp of the European Tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
THE CELTIC MANOR
The event has always been played at Celtic Manor in Newport, Wales. From 2000 to 2004 it was played on the Wentwood Hills course. While that course was being redeveloped for the 2010 Ryder Cup, the Wales Open was played from 2005 to 2007 on the par-69 Roman Road course. From 2008, the event has been played on the Ryder Cup Twenty-Ten course.
The Twenty Ten – It was designed by Ross McMurray. Wentwood Hills has been extensively remodelled for the 2010 Ryder Cup Matches, making the new version the first course to be purpose-built for the biennial transatlantic tournament. Opened in 2007, the resultant course comprises nine pre-existing holes from the Wentwood Hills course and nine new ones. The layout is designed to allow large galleries to conveniently follow the small number of concurrent matches which are played during the Ryder Cup. The course has only one fairway crossing, and there are open views of the 16th, 17th and 18th holes, which are situated in an amphitheatre. The spectator capacity is 50,000. The course hosted the Wales Open tournament prior to the Ryder Cup.

SEBASTIAN MUNOZ 50/1
Great bet here this week my banker bet. He has been playing well this season, he only missed the one cut in fourteen starts. His last event was the 150th Open where he did not have his best week on the greens. The team have seen a major improvement within his putting from inside ten feet so trending in the right direction.
Winner of the Sanderson Farms a couple of years ago he is looking to add number two to his collection and feel this week could be his best chance of the year.
We got to watch his first round at the AT&T this year and he nearly made history carding a 60 he seems to get out the blocks early so if he is on for the task this week watch him for first round leader bet as well.
SI WOO KIM 30/1
I backed him at the Memorial this year where we of course tipped Billy Horschel the winner at 60/1. Woo Kim was 80/1 that week and just missed out on the places for us.
It’s another player I just love the way he is trending right now. Coming off three straight missed cuts he has gone two top twenties at the Open championship and then last week at the Rocket Mortgage.
For me the putter cost him his missed cuts, what I have liked the look of is that since the Travelers has been his strokes gained putting is looking impressive he was over one shot better than the field last week on the greens.
If he follows suit here then watch out.
BILLY HORSCHEL 21/1
He is bound to be one of the favourites here this week and for very good reason. As you know he won for us already this year so as with Cam Smith can he do us the double here?
His stats for the PGA Tour are some very good reading:
- SG Off the Tee – 36TH
- SG Around the Green – 12TH
- SG Putting – 13TH
- SG Tee to Green – 36TH
- SG Total – 16TH
You can always forgive a player missing the cut a week after his win which is to be expected. His last event was in fact the Open Championship where again he had a good week he started slow but closed Sunday with a very nice 67 just finishing outside the top twenty.
For me it has been his iron play that has improved since the Open and he has been here early and looks to be striking them as per as on the range and out in practice.
One to watch a must on any betting slip.
SUNGJAE IM 20/1
Currently sitting in 15TH place on the FedexCup and the world number 21 it’s a very exciting time for this youngster.
With two PGA Tour wins already under his belt with plenty more to come that’s for sure.
We saw plenty of his golf at the 3M Open where he played some great stuff. Things we liked the look of and he ticks the boxes around here are:
- Driving Accuracy 30TH
- Greens in Regulation 12TH
- SG Off the Tee 11TH
- Total Driving 5TH
- Scrambling 4TH
The odds will be pretty low but I had to put him in.
STUART MANLEY 125/1
The team have been following Stuart a lot on the Challenge Tour over the past couple of years and feel his experience now he has gained will be only a good thing moving forward for the future. His home track is Mountain Ash and plays a lot of his golf around Wales.
He has won three times on the Challenge Tour since 2013 with his last win coming in 2021 at the Euram Bank Open.
He had one of his best results on the DP World Tour last week finishing in a tie for 22ND. He closed his final round well so will be very positive coming back to his home country and should have another good week.
CONNOR SYME 45/1
I feel this will be our best value bet for the week. He has not had the best of results leading into this week. Which will be a good thing for us coming in under the radar from the bookies.
It was only back in May where he had a chance to get his first win on the DP World Tour at the British Masters he was only two shots back from Olesen.
As with a lot of golfers some players just seem to turn up at certain events and like the feel and have good memories around certain courses this place is to Connor’s liking and his previous results here read: 3RD 8TH 18TH
I feel the game is trending for yet another good week so could be the danger man and a good odds winner for us.
CALLUM SHINKWIN 25/1
It was quite a watch last week and that second shot on the 18th on Sunday was the worst we have seen on that hole the whole week haha. Even though he tried his hardest to throw away a place for us he did hold on in the end.
I feel this form carries on and should be another solid week from him.
The funny thing was that Sky Sports and the DP World Tour have spoken to him and asked him to watch his language if he is on air again.
ROBERT ROCK - TOP 20 BET 5/1
I just feel watching and catching up with him last week it should be a good value top 20 bet here.
