Following Tony Finau’s Rocket Mortgage Classic triumph over the weekend, the 2022 PGA TOUR shifts its focus to this week’s stop: the Wyndham Championship.
The Wyndham Championship will be held for the 15th time on the Ross Course at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. The event is 7,127 yards long in total, with a par of 70.
Last year’s competition was tight, but Kevin Kisner prevailed in a six-way playoff over five other players. Kisner is returning this year, looking to successfully defend his title.
Here are the most recent 2022 Wyndham Championship odds from OKbet Sportsbook, as well as some betting selections to consider this week.

Best Bets for the Wyndham Championship 2022
Webb Simpson to Victory
This week, Kisner isn’t the only past winner coming to Greensboro. Webb Simpson will also be in the mix, and his previous experience should give him an advantage in winning it all.
Simpson first won the Wyndham Championship in 2011. He finished three strokes clear of runner-up George McNeill after shooting 18-under-par over four rounds at Sedgefield.
The Wyndham Championship adventure of the hometown hero does not stop there. The 36-year-old veteran has competed in the competition 13 times in his career, placing in the top ten nine times (including his tournament victory).
He’s finished seventh or better in eight of his previous nine races, including two second- and three-place finishes in his last five.
Although Simpson has underperformed on the PGA Tour recently, his experience in Greensboro compensates. Fans can anticipate a deep run from the Raleigh, NC native if he can recapture that spark early on.
Will Zalatoris to Victory
Will Zalatoris, one of the better names available this week, is a great selection to win the 2022 Wyndham Championship.
Zalatoris finished 29th on his comeback to the Ross Course last year after missing the cut in his debut in 2020. He now intends to capitalize on that performance this week by taking another step forward.
Zalatoris has been playing well recently, despite his lack of a PGA win. He has seven top-25 results in his previous 11 competitions, finishing T-6 or better in six of them, including two second-place finishes.
I’d be weary about rolling with Zalatoris if the field in North Carolina was stronger this week. However, with minimal opposition, he’s a solid bet to win the whole event.
Kevin Kisner to Victory
As previously said, many eyes will be on Kisner to repeat as champion this week. Given that Sam Snead is the only golfer to win the event in consecutive years, it’s evident that the 38-year-old has an uphill struggle.
Aside from his triumph last year, Kisner has had some success at the Wyndham Championship. He’s finished 10th or better in four of his previous five races, including his 2021 championship. In addition, he came in third place in 2020.
Some bettors may be cautious to back Kisner since he hasn’t been the most consistent player this season. Nonetheless, he had T-6 and T-21 results in his previous three races. With a smaller field than normal, he should be able to finish at the top of the standings and even win the whole race.
Kim Si Woo to Victory
Kim Si Woo at +3200 is another golfer I like this week.
Things were looking gloomy for him in recent months, as he had missed the cut in three straight tournaments. Fortunately, Kim has recovered well, finishing T-15 in the Open Championship and T-14 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic over the weekend.
Kim will hopefully be able to combine his current success with his previous Wyndham Championship expertise. He’s competed in the competition six times in his career, finishing in the top five in four of his previous five attempts, including a triumph in 2016 and a second-place finish last year.
Kim seems to be a lock to finish near the top every time he sets foot on the Ross Course. I believe he is capable of playing better than he has been recently, but only time will tell whether he can take that next step in Greensboro, which begins on Thursday.
