Craig Edwards previews the Wyndham Championship place markets trying to hit another big winner for the 3rd week in a row

<div><h2><strong>Wyndham Championship </strong></h2><p><strong>Sedgefield Country Club, Ross Course</strong></p><p>This is the last regulation week on the PGA Tour this season and many players are under pressure to regain their playing privileges for next season while qualifying for the Fedex Play-offs starting next week.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;It’s time! It’s &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/WyndhamChamp?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@WyndhamChamp&lt;/a&gt; week in Greensboro! &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/soGSO?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#soGSO&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/PGATOUR?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@PGATOUR&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/LrmICnviCH\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/LrmICnviCH&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— City of Greensboro (@greensborocity) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/greensborocity/status/1155601823308419072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;July 28, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><h2><strong>Predictions and Betting Tips </strong></h2><p>2011 champion <strong>Webb</strong> <strong>Simpson</strong> is a good player to start with, he has six top 10 finishes and eight top 20 finishes. A prolific course specialist who has been a model of consistency all season. The only player that equals his impressive course statistics is last year’s champion <strong>Brandt</strong> <strong>Snedeker</strong> but there may be more value on both in the Outright market.</p><p>For our selections we are going to look further down the betting market starting with the Sanderson Farms 2017 champion <strong>Ryan</strong> <strong>Armour</strong>. At forty-three years of age he is a late bloomer to the PGA Tour and these birdie fests suit him as back to back top 10 finishes here prove. At 117 in the current Fedex play off rankings he will want a solid week to guarantee his participation next week at The Northern Trust Open which takes the top 125 players.</p><p><strong>Bill</strong> <strong>Haas</strong> is the next course specialist we are going to consider whose career was derailed in February 2018 after a very serious car crash near Los Angeles most famous golf course Riviera. There was one fatality and that was the driver of the car Bill Haas was travelling in. Famous actor Luke Wilson was also involved and hailed a hero for helping one of the victims to get free. An event like that not only has physical injuries to recover from but in these circumstances, psychological scars also. Prior to this he was a well-established name on the PGA Tour with six wins including the 2011 FedEx Cup. There can be no surprise that on his return to competitive golf in 2019 it has taken him a long time to get close to the level he reached prior but there has been encouragement recently with back to back top 11 finishes at the John Deere Classic and Barbasol Championship. I mentioned he was a course specialist and that is proven by four top 10 and seven top 30 finishes in the last decade here.</p><p>With place only betting it can be prudent to look for players who rarely threaten to win but have shown a previous affinity for the event and course. One such player who has shown up on my radar this week is <strong>Scott</strong> <strong>Langley</strong> from Florida. Since turning professional in 2011 he has underwhelmed despite a promising debut at the Sony Open where he was the 36-hole leader. Since then he has flitted between the PGA Tour and feeder tour with his only win being the 2018 Panama Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour. Two previous top 20 finishes here in four attempts and his first outing at Sedgefield Country Club since 2016 comes on the back of a solid 29<sup>th</sup> at the Barbasol Championship.</p><p>Last but not least we are going to take a punt on <strong>John</strong> <strong>Chin</strong> to back up last week’s third place finish at the Barracuda Championship. It has been a tough debut season on the PGA Tour for the thirty-two-year old form Fairfax, Virginia but the last two weeks have shown significant improvement. He will need another big week to retain his playing privileges so 51.00 about a top 10 finish looks too big considering he has nothing to lose and can attack this birdie fest tournament.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets</strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><strong>Bill Haas – Top 10 @ 12.00 (11/1) Betfred </strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><strong>Scott Langley – Top 20 @ 15.00 (14/1) Boylesports </strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><strong>Ryan Armour – Top 20 @ 7.50 (13/2) Paddy Power </strong></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><strong>John Chin – Top 10 @ 51.00 (50/1) Betfred</strong></a></p></div>
