The Wyndham Championship never draws the biggest field, simply because the PGA Championship is the week before, so don’t expect to see Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, or Justin Rose hitting balls at all this week.
However, the tournament down Greesnboro still has enough of a crowd to keep us fantasy golf fans interested. To help you draft this week, here are the top-20 fantasy golfers for the 2013 Wyndham Championship.
20. Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth – The 20-year-old has been somewhat erratic since his win at the John Deere Classic. However, he is clearly the new kid on campus and will be a good sleeper with the limited field this week.
19. Chris Kirk
Chris Kirk – Kirk has six top-25 finishes on the year and will be a very underrated sleeper to grab.
18. Brendon de Jonge
Brendon de Jonge – BDJ finished 14th here last year. He has been up and down this year, but his past success here will make him worth a shot.
17. Jimmy Walker
Jimmy Walker – Walker may have missed the cut in four of his last five tournaments, but he still has 10 top-26 finishes on the year.
16. Scott Stallings
Scott Stallings – Stallings finished tied for 14th here last year. He had four top-four finishes earlier in the year and the veteran has shown that he can get hot.
15. Bud Cauley
Bud Cauley – Cauley finished third here last year after shooting a 66-65-68-68 in his four rounds to finish 15 under.
14. Padraig Harrington
Padraig Harrington – Harrington has four top-10 finishes in his 16 appearances this season, including a win at the Reno-Tahoe Open.
13. Roberto Castro
Roberto Castro – Castro has racked up three top-12 finishes in his last five tournaments.
12. Patrick Reed
Patrick Reed – Reed finished seventh at the John Deere Classic and ninth at the Canadian Open. He enters the Wyndham playing his best golf of the year.
11. David Toms
David Toms – Toms has made the cut here in four of his five attempts, including a solo second place finish back in 2010.
10. Nick Watney
Nick Watney – Watney is 11th on the tour in Greens In Regulation (69.0%) and will shine on the open greens at Sedgefield.
9. Hideki Matsuyama
Hideki Matsuyama – The Japanese sensation has been on fire this season since joining the PGA tour. Matsuyama has finished inside the top-21 in his last five stateside tournaments, including the last three majors.
8. Chez Reavie
Chez Reavie – Reavie has made the cut at Sedgefield in all three of his appearances, including tying for 10th in 2009 and 11th in 2011.
7. Tim Clark
Tim Clark – Clark finished second here last year with an incredible score of 16 under. He is also first on the tour in Driving Accuracy (70.5%) and should hit plenty of fairways down in North Carolina.
6. Carl Pettersson
Carl Pettersson – Pettersson tied for fourth here last year, fourth in 2011, and won it all in 2008.
5. Bill Haas
Bill Haas – In his last 13 tournaments, Haas has nine top-25 finishes including six top-10’s.
4. Sergio Garcia
Sergio Garcia – Garcia is the defending champion at Sedgefield after shooting 18 under last year. The Spaniard also finished fourth (2009) in his only other appearance here, so expect Sergio to be near the top of the leaderboard all week.
3. Brandt Snedeker
