2022 Wyndham Championship Prop Bets: Conners Poised For Top-20 Finish

With our outright wagers placed, we now turn our attention to the prop market for our expert selections for the 2022 Wyndham Championship. It is always important to search for value in the top finishing markets, so remember to shop around for the best lines for your 2022 Wyndham Championship prop bets as they typically differ from sportsbook to sportsbook.

Another week on the PGA Tour has come and gone and with it was yet another successful tournament for our prop bets. After connecting on two large paydays at the 3M Open, the Rocket Mortgage Classic was even kinder to us with Patrick Cantlay finishing inside the top five and both J.J. Spaun and Taylor Pendrith finishing inside the top 20.

This week, the Wyndham Championship presents a great opportunity to once again take advantage of market inefficiencies. With only a few big names in the field, it is no surprise to see Sungjae Im and Shane Lowry headline the oddsboard. They have both factored in major championships and regular PGA Tour events this season and both are in search of their first victory of 2022.

However, Will Zalatoris is the man who is currently highest in the FedExCup standings as he ranks 11th ahead of the regular-season finale. With the top 10 players at the end of this event receiving a monetary bonus, Zalatoris is playing for more than just his first career victory on the PGA Tour.

Sungjae Im is listed at -150 to finish inside the top 20 at the Wyndham Championship, arriving in solid form, and he should once again contend. According to our odds calculator, this gives him a 60 percent chance to find either the first or second page of the leaderboard. Needing to lay $150 to profit $100 at those odds, we will instead look elsewhere for value in the Wyndham Championship prop market.

Wyndham Championship Prop Bets

Corey Conners Top-20 Finish (+110)

Wyndham Championship Props: Top-20 Finish Odds
Shane Lowry-150
Sungjae Im-150
Will Zalatoris-125
Billy Horschel+100
Webb Simpson+100
Corey Conners+110
Russell Henley+110
Si Woo Kim+110
Adam Scott+150
Joohyung Kim+150
Kevin Kisner+150
Tyrrell Hatton+150

The Wyndham Championship should be an ideal landing spot for Conners, who has not played since The Open. The Canadian finished T-28 in the year’s final major championship, impressing with the putter in the hand, which typically is not the case.

Before this trip to Scotland, he had finished in sixth place at the RBC Canadian Open where he posted +0.66 strokes gained off the tee per round and +1.21 strokes gained approach per round. This followed up a finish of T-13 at the Memorial where he was even more impressive in the ball-striking department, gaining nearly nine strokes on approach and an additional three with the driver in hand.

This will be Conners’ fourth appearance at the Wyndham Championship – the best he has done yet is a T-22 effort in 2019. He has yet to figure out these Donald Ross greens but he has proven his ball-striking is more than enough to carry him into contention.

Brian Harman Top-20 Finish (+165)

Harman is a boom-or-bust option for the Wyndham Championship as his history at Sedgefield Country Club is extremely sporadic. In nine prior appearances, Harman has missed the cut six times yet his results in his three made cuts read T-27, T-6 and T-3. If he is able to play himself into the weekend, one should expect a similar finish for the Georgia product.

He arrives off a T-6 finish at The Open and a T-8 result at the Travelers Championship. Harman thrives on these shorter, positional-based golf courses as seen in two other top-five finishes on his 2021-22 season.

He is striking the ball well and is among the best keeping the ball in the short grass. Known to be able to get the putter going, this week at the Wyndham Championship should be the perfect storm for a player such as Harman.

Russell Henley Top-10 Finish (+350)

Wyndham Championship Props: Top-10 Finish
Shane Lowry+150
Sungjae Im+150
Will Zalatoris+165
Billy Horschel+200
Webb Simpson+200
Corey Conners+225
Russell Henley+225
Si Woo Kim+225
Adam Scott+300
Joohyung Kim+300
Kevin Kisner+300
Tyrrell Hatton+300

A victim of nerves down the stretch last season, Henley should relish in his redemption story brewing at the Wyndham Championship. He arrives off a strong start at Detroit GC – another Donald Ross design – where he finished in a tie for 10th.

On the week, he ranked second in strokes gained tee to green, trailing only Tony Finau, and posted +0.42 strokes gained off the tee per round, +1.26 strokes gained approach per round and +0.97 strokes gained around the green per round.

Henley should be able to ride this momentum into North Carolina and make amends for last season’s heartbreak. He has finished inside the top 10 at the Wyndham Championship in back-to-back years and has a realistic opportunity to make it three in a row based on his current form.

K.H. Lee Top-20 Finish (+400)

The Sportsbook at the Byron Nelson has since struggled to find his way, but the Wyndham Championship should bring good vibes. A course that forces players to take less than driver off the tee and has the propensity to turn into a birdie fest does fit Lee’s skill set.

Since his win, the South Korean’s best finish has been a T-19 effort at the Travelers Championship on a course with some similarities to Sedgefield Country Club. While his quality has fallen a touch, his putting has not as he gained +1.75 strokes per round at TPC River Highlands and continued to perform well on the greens in Scotland.

He will be making his fourth Wyndham Championship start and was able to put forth his best effort last season with a T-24 result. He gained strokes in each tee-to-green metric in 2021, but bled strokes to the field with the putter in hand. If able to marry his current putting with his historical tee-to-green efficiency, he should make his way inside the top 20 by week’s end.

Matthew NeSmith Top-10 Finish (+900)

The last couple of weeks have not been kind to NeSmith as he has lost his ball-striking prowess. This should change at the Wyndham Championship as the South Carolina product returns to a familiar part of the country and on a course suited for his game.

Known to play his best golf on shorter golf courses, NeSmith should find some comfort around Sedgefield Country Club. With his best finish coming in 2020 in the form of a T-42 result, the 28-year-old surely has room for improvement.

Yet he comes in as one of the most accurate drivers of the golf ball on the PGA Tour and with his wedges in a strong spot. He posted +1.67 strokes gained approach per round at the Travelers Championship and +0.80 strokes gained approach per round at the Memorial Tournament. If able to conjure up an effort similar to those two, he should have a chance to sneak inside the top 10 at the Wyndham Championship.

Wyndham Championship Prop Bets: What To Look For

With the final regular-season event of the season comes the last chance for competitors to play their way into the postseason. One player who is among the fan favorites is Rickie Fowler, who is inside the cut-off point just narrowly to begin the week.

Standing at 123rd in the FedExCup standings, Fowler is in danger of missing the postseason for the second consecutive season. His struggles have been well documented and a weekend appearance would all but secure his place in the field next week in Memphis.

Other players who are hoping for strong weeks include Webb Simpson, who is just inside the top 120 after his finish last week at Detroit Golf Club. More veterans such as Stewart Cink, Danny Willett and Lucas Glover need strong performances while PGA Tour rookies Nick Hardy, Austin Smotherman and Max McGreevy are in the same boat as well.

Rookies have contended with some consistency in 2022 when looking at players such as Cameron Young, Sahith Theegala and Davis Riley, but this is a reminder just how difficult it can be to find your footing on the PGA Tour. With schedule changes coming in 2024, being able to secure one’s playing privileges in 2023 becomes all the more important and as such the pressure will be turned up a notch at the Wyndham Championship.
