Sedgefield is once again the host for the 2015 renewal of the Wyndham. The course is inviting to the punter as we can narrow our search for a winner due to it's intricacies. The course is a shortish par 70 that rewards accurate driving and stellar wedge play. The great and the good of wedge players have always fared well here down the years and I expect this time around to be no different. The course may receive a bit of rain over the next few days which isn't ideal for our betting preparations. Ideally we'd be looking for one of the shorter hitters who has a decent wedge game. The rain might cause a little concern to those guys as it will play longer, as a result I have focused my search on those who are a a shade more average in length off the tee.

Brooks Koepka heads the market and with the potential for the course to get soft he has every chance of obliging. Quotes of 16/1 are fair although I think his chances best lie on a wider open track. This tree-lined layout won't exactly suit his driving as he likes to really open his shoulders. I'll conclude the price is quite good but I'll pass him up because of the venue.

Branden Grace arrives here in very good nick off the back of an impressive performance in the PGA. Grace has really become a big time player in recent months with looking all over the winner at Chambers Bay in the summer before sending his tee shot on the 16th into oblivion. That remains his weakness while in contention. He has a tendency to get very fast with the club and body not perfectly in motion together which results in some wild shots under pressure. Still, he is worthy of consideration taking into account his form, but we will leave him off the staking plan because of those reasons, despite the fact he is putting as well as ever. We'll go with a three pronged attack to the Wyndham.

Brandt Snedeker is one worth a few dollars this week. Snedeker usually shows some form before landing a win and he is posting some very impressive results of late. Four top tens on the trot during the summer, one of which was the US Open was backed up with an impressive 12th placed finish at Whistling Straits last week.

The 70s on offer last week was very tempting considering his form and we were a bit unlucky he couldn't turn it on a bit more. Quotes of 20/1 have made way for 18s here and although I consider that quite short, I feel he is the most likely winner so we'll have to invest. He won this title in 2007 on a different track however he has backed that up with two top 5 finishes at Sedgefield since. This place really suits his game and if he can get the putter a bit hotter than what it has been then he'll be in contention no doubt. A solid each-way bet.
Brandt Snedeker - 1.25pt e/w @ 18/1
Luke Donald is slowly working his way back to where he used to be. I was surprised Luke went so off the boil, but it happens when you start messing around with different coaches, and it can take a long time to get back. This summer has been very encouraging. Top tens at the Travelers and Scottish Open were backed up by a solid tied 12th finish at the British Open. He is on a run of 9 made cuts on the trot and this is a welcome return to consistency for the Englishman.

Possibly the most impressive of those was a 43rd place finish at Whistling Straits last week. The Straits course was a long slog for somebody who doesn't hit it a mile out there. Also, considering how short he hits it, if he strayed left or right it would have been severe punishment as he'd be left long approaches in. He has never taken part around Sedgefield which I find surprising. Maybe it has clicked that this venue should suit, and with the form he is beginning to show he is certainly an ounce of value at 66/1.

I'm disappointed to have missed out on the early quotes of 33/1 about Billy Horschel. I can't leave him out though and we'll have to invest a few quid at 28s. Billy hasn't finished any lower than 33rd in his last nine events and is slowly building towards another fine ending to the year. He scythed through the world of golf last autumn to win two events and claim the treasure chest that is the Fedex Cup.

This might just be the time of year to catch Billy as he starts thinking about defending that trophy. He will need a win or two along the way and with three made cuts from three appearances here he might be able to improve on that. He played quite well at Whistling Straits last week and has every chance of going better at Sedgefield. 0.75pt each-way B.Horschel 28/1
