Russell Henley is one of our picks for the Wyndham Championship Odds

Wyndham Championship Odds & Picks: Plenty Of Value In Busy Oddsboard

The final regular season event of the year takes place this week as the PGA Tour travels to Greensboro, North Carolina for the 2023 Wyndham Championship. Players seek one final chance to make an impression on the FedEx Cup standings as the top 70 competitors in the season-long race will advance into the postseason next week for the St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind.

Before we get there, we must attend to the business at Sedgefield Country Club. The Donald Ross design has rewarded similar winners in recent years with Tom Kim blitzing the field last year with a final-round 61 to win by five as Jim Herman did two years prior. Kevin Kisner emerged from a six m-man playoff in 2021 defeating the likes of Si Woo Kim, Branden Grace and Kevin Na.

Each of those players are among the most accurate drivers of the golf ball and have proven time and time again their putter is a weapon. Looking to follow in their footsteps is a quartet of betting favorites: Hideki Matsuyama, Russell Henley, Si Woo Kim and Sungjae Im all listed at +2000.

All players have enjoyed immense success around this par 70 and look for more of the same. Sam Burns checks in at +2500 while his Presidents' Cup teammate Justin Thomas is priced at +3500. Major champions Adam Scott and Shane Lowry round out the notables near the top of the oddsboard at +3000.

2023 Wyndham Championship Betting Picks

In addition to a few outright picks this week, I have a top-20 prop you should consider as well.

Russell Henley (+2000 to win outright)

On short golf courses where positional prowess and heady iron play are key, Henley has proven to be a problem. A winner at El Camaleon Golf Club in Mayakoba this past fall, the former Georgia Bulldog bulldozed the field. He arrives in Greensboro off a missed cut at The Open, but Sedgefield CC should be the perfect medicine.

Henley has captured three straight top-10 finishes in this tournament including in 2021 when he entered the final round with a three-stroke lead before squandering it on the final nine to miss a six-man playoff by a single stroke.

Over the last six months, he leads this field in terms of driving accuracy and strokes gained tee-to-green and ranks top five in both strokes gained approach and strokes gained around the green.

Si Woo Kim (+2000 to win outright)

As far as horses for courses go there are few that are more compatible than Kim and Sedgefield CC. Claiming his first career PGA Tour victory here in 2016, Kim has continued to enjoy success around this Donald Ross design. He claimed top-five finishes three years straight from 2019-21, including a podium finish behind a streaking Jim Herman in 2020 and a playoff loss in 2021.

Similar to Henley, Kim is coming off a pair of missed cuts, but before his play at the Travelers Championship and The Open, the South Korean was rolling. He was a member of the final pair in the final round of the Memorial before finishing in fourth place.

A month prior, Kim finished runner up to Jason Day at the Byron Nelson. He ranks 10th in driving accuracy, ninth in strokes gained tee-to-green and inside the top 20 in strokes gained off the tee and strokes gained approach since February. 

Andrew Putnam (+8000 to win outright)

Recent winners point to the statistical profile that Putnam possesses. Kim, Kisner and Herman all consistently find fairways, have the potential to get scorching hot with their scoring clubs and are all sound with the putter in hand -- that is Putnam to a tee.

Over the last three months, Putnam ranks 11th in total strokes gained, 16th in driving accuracy and inside the top 10 in both strokes gained approach and stokes gained putting. He has now made six consecutive cuts including a top-five finish at the Memorial, but it is his iron play from his two most prior events that strike confidence as he gained more than four strokes on approach at both the Scottish Open and The Open.

Doug Ghim (+8000 to win outright)

Ghim has run into some trouble at the Wyndham Championship with three straight missed cuts, but he did start his career here with showing some form with a top-20 effort. He arrives this time around in stellar form connecting on top-35 finishes in seven of his last eight starts.

The highlights have come at shorter, positional golf courses such as TPC River Highlands with a T-15 and the Canadian Open via T-12 result. He ranks 14th in strokes gained tee-to-green over the last three months and inside the top 40 in each tee-to-green metric during that span. As accurate as they come with the driver in hand, Ghim is an adequate putting week away from his first PGA Tour victory.

Aaron Rai (+200 to finish inside the top 20)

Wyndham Championship Top-20 Finish Odds
Hideki Matsuyama-110
Russell Henley-110
Si Woo Kim-110
Sungjae Im-110
Denny McCarthy+110
J.T. Poston+110
Sam Burns+110
Adam Scott+120
Shane Lowry+120
Aaron Rai+140
Alex Smalley+140
Cam Davis+140
Justin Thomas+140

Odds as of August 1

The Englishman continues to flash brilliance with his top-20 finish at the 3M Open. Rai may not be able to make enough putts to contend in a birdie fest, but he is plenty good enough to cash a top-20 result for the second consecutive week.

He has five top-25s in his last seven starts with the best of them coming at the Canadian Open and the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Since the beginning of May, Rai ranks third in driving accuracy, ninth in strokes gained tee-to-green and 12th in strokes gained approach among those in the field.

Here’s a helpful outline of some of the different betting options for the Wyndham Championship to help you decide which wager(s) would be best for you.


Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on golfers to make or miss the cut, to name a few. Similar to other sports, props are a fun way to enhance your betting experience.

Live Betting

Live betting is an exhilarating way to watch golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the event, you can easily get back in the game by wagering on another golfer as the days go by.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are.

Depending on your sportsbook, you should be able to access live betting options during most PGA Tour tournaments.
