The PGA Tour's regular season wraps up this week when the 2021 Wyndham Championship tees off Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. Several players have taken the week off to rest for next week's Northern Trust, but Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama and red-hot Louis Oosthuizen highlight the field.
Caesars Sportsbook lists 2011 winner and North Carolina native Webb Simpson as the 12-1 favorite in its latest 2021 Wyndham Championship golf odds, followed by Morikawa (14-1), Oosthuizen (18-1) and 2013 Wyndham champion Patrick Reed (22-1).
Media legend and esteemed golf insider Sal Johnson has broken down the field and has revealed his top 2021 Wyndham Championship picks below. With his track record on picks, you'll really want to see who he is backing, because he knows what it takes to win at Sedgefield.
Before the 2018 Wyndham Championship, he tabbed Brandt Snedeker as one of his best bets, and last year he had Billy Horschel among his top contenders. Snedeker went 21 under to win by three strokes, while Horschel shot 20 under in 2020 and finished a shot behind surprise champion Jim Herman.
Johnson also has been on fire this season! Before the Olympics golf competition, he listed Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa, Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama among his top five golfers, and three of them made the playoff for bronze, while Schauffele won the gold medal for Team USA. Anyone who has followed Johnson's advice has cashed in HUGE!
Now Johnson, the first producer of "Inside the PGA Tour," a longtime ABC Sports golf producer who worked with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, and founder of the world's top golf stats database, has released his highly confident 2021 Wyndham Championship picks, and they will surprise you.

Shockingly, the golf expert is fading Oosthuizen, who has been on top of his game for more than a year. Johnson wonders why the South African is evening teeing it up this week with his playoff spot secure. Oosthuizen stumbled briefly in the final round last week, and he might lack the motivation if he gets off to a low start at Sedgefield. Johnson thinks he could even miss the cut!
Instead, Johnson is backing a long shot who comes in at around 40-1 odds! This golfer has won on courses just like this before, and he has the shot-making ability to make a surprise charge this week! Anyone who backs this underdog could cash in HUGE!
