2022 Wyndham Championship Picks

Russell Henley ($9,800)

Similar to how Happy Gilmore would be something at one of those long drive contests, Henley would be something on one of those tours where they only play on short Bermuda courses. Henley missed a three-footer on the 72nd hole to get into last year’s playoff. Soul-crushing, yes; still good enough for his second-straight Top 10 at Sedgefield, though. He gained in each T2G metric last week in Detroit en route to a T10, and he’s now back on his preferred putting surface (+0.33 SG:PUTT/round on Bermuda). Sedgefield is a layout that can let him get away with his distance deficiencies.

Adam Svensson ($7,500)

Despite being best known this season as king of the missed short putt, Svensson had rattled off positive putting performances in eight consecutive events before it stopped rolling so well at the Rocket Mortgage. It happens. I was far more encouraged to see his ball striking return. The Canadian was fourth in the field in approach for the week and gained against the field with his driver, and most certainly, Sedgefield is a much better layout for his skills.
