Wyndham Championship :: Runners & Riders

2014 08 176648629

The regular PGA Tour season draws to a close at the Wyndham Championship this week, with a strong field – including no fewer than 15 major champions – set to go all out for glory at Sedgefield Country Club.


Defending champion


Patrick Reed is aiming to, once again, top the field of 156 players at the Wyndham Championship this week. The 24-year-old will be hoping to reproduce the form he displayed at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two weeks ago, where he shot a final round 65 to finish in fourth place.

The favourite


PGA Championship - Round One

With a Ryder Cup wildcard pick in his sights, world No.33 Brandt Snedeker travels to Sedgefield as the slight favourite. Wyndham Championship winner in 2007, the American shot 66-67 during the weekend at the PGA Championship last week. He will be determined to carry that good form into this week.

Likely to challenge


Ernie Els has experienced an upturn in fortunes since missing the cut at the Open, finishing 12th in the Canadian Open, 26th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and seventh at Valhalla last weekend. With a wealth of experience, the four-time major winner could pop up among the leaders come Sunday.

The outsider


PGA Championship - Final Round

America’s Brooks Koepka impressed at the PGA Championship last week, ending the year’s final major in 15th place after weekend rounds of 66 and 67. Having began June ranked 100th in the world, the former Challenge Tour pro has climbed 30 places to 70th since then. Playing well, and full of confidence from Valhalla, the 24-year-old could make a push for victory this week.

Scot watch at the Wyndham Championship


Ryder Cup hopeful Stephen Gallacher is in need of a big performance at the Wyndham Championship. Missing the cut at the PGA Championship did his push for a place in Paul McGinley’s Ryder Cup European side no favours. He’s sitting just outside the automatic qualification spots, with only a few weeks to go. The world No.32 needs to up his game.
