Golf betting will resume after a thrilling PGA Tournament last week with the Wyndam Championship from Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. Golf betting handicappers will evaluate the Wyndam Championship that has a total purse of $5,200,000 with a winning share of $918,000 and a total of 500 FedExCup points at stake.
Carl Patterson is the defending golf betting champion of the Wyndam Championship as he defeated Soctt McCarron by 2 strokes. What made Patterson’s golf betting win so special is that he played college golf for the North Carolina State Wolfpack to give a hometown hero effect for the gallery. Overall, however, Patterson has had a mixed golf betting career and he has made the cut in just 10 out of 24 events in 2009 with only 2 top 25 finishes. He has only 3 wins in his 203 career golf betting events played.
The golf betting field for this event is headlined by Sergio Garcia, Fred Couples, and Adam Scott.
Garcia is an impressive addition to the golf betting field as he ranked 6th overall in the Official World Golf Ranking. Garcia has made 10 out of 13 cuts this year with 1 top 10 and 4 top 25 finishes. Garcia’s best golf betting finish this year was 10th at the US Open. In his career Garcia has played in 192 events with 158 cuts made as he has 7 wins, 9-2nd place finishes, and 7 3rd place showings. His last tour win came in 2008.
Couples ranked 90th on the Official World Golf Ranking. This year he has played in 12 events with 7 cuts made with 2-3rd place finishes and 3 top 10 finishes. Those 3rd place finishes came in the Northern Trust Open and the Shell Houston Open.
Scott ranked 46th on the Official World Golf Ranking and has made 7 cuts in 16 events this year with 1-2nd place finish and 1 top 10 finish. His 2nd place finish was in the Sony Open at Hawaii. Scott has 6 career wins in 140 events played and 37 top 10 finishes.
