First off, congratulations to Jason Day on his PGA Championship win at Whistling Straights. I was lucky enough to attend the Wednesday practice round last week and had a great time watching the coverage all weekend. As a golf fan it was a great tournament…the course looked/played great and Sunday’s leaderboard was loaded with some of the biggest names in golf.

This week the PGA heads to Greensboro, NC for the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club. The field is a little weak since it is the week following the PGA Championship. The course plays at par 70 and around 7,100 yards. Course and tournament history shows that length isn’t a huge advantage here. I looked mostly at par 4 scoring and current form for this week...very simple. I am introducing a new rating system which I will use as PART of my rankings. I think it provides a decent statistical breakdown of who looks good week to week. The ratings for this week are below…

  • Will Wilcox: 17.80
  • Hideki Matsuyama: 19.00
  • Brooks Koepka: 22.10
  • Paul Casey: 27.38
  • Russell Knox: 28.47
  • Bill Haas: 29.70
  • Justin Thomas: 32.73
  • Brandt Snedeker: 34.05
  • Webb Simpson: 43.05
  • Brendon Todd: 43.95
  • Daniel Berger: 49.00
  • Billy Horschel: 51.05
  • Harris English: 51.07

2015 Wyndham Championship Fantasy Power Rankings

  • 1) Brooks Koepka – top 5 at PGA and on a roll right now. Might have challenged if he didn’t draw an afternoon tee time on Thursday last week
  • 2) Brandt Snedeker – 12th at PGA and tons of past success at Sedgefield including a 2007 win
  • 3) Justin Thomas – plays aggressive and can go real low. 18th at the PGA
  • 4) Hideki Matsyuama – consistent as ever…3rd in par 4 scoring and 5th in strokes gained tee to green
  • 5) Bill Haas – going on his course history here. Hasn’t played great lately but is almost guaranteed a top 20 every time he plays the Wyndham
  • 6) Will Wilcox – rattled off top 10s in 3 of his last 4. T3 in Par 4 scoring.
  • 7) Branden Grace – great showing at the PGA with a 3rd place finish. Definitely trending upward.
  • 8) Webb Simpson – like Haas, another course horse. Win in 2011 and top 22 every year since
  • 9) Paul Casey – has cooled off since earlier this year but I think a top 25 is in line. Consistent player.
  • 10) Billy Horschel – starting to heat up like he did last year. Averaging a 23rd place finish over his last 5 tournaments with his worst being a 33rd
