The PGA Tour playoffs start next week, and while most of the top players are resting, many up-and-coming and lesser-known players have an opportunity at this week's 2022 Wyndham Championship. When the tournament tees off Thursday at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., some of the PGA Tour's fan favorites are battling to finish above the No. 125 cutoff spot. They include Webb Simpson (117th), Rickie Fowler (123rd) and Cameron Champ (130th). Will Zalatoris, 17th in the World Golf Ranking, is the top player in the Wyndham Championship 2022 field. He will be joined by players like defending champion Kevin Kisner, 2019 winner J.T. Poston, Harold Varner and Shane Lowry.
Caesars Sportsbook lists Zalatoris (16-1), Lowry (16-1) and Sungjae Im (16-1) as the favorites in its latest 2022 Wyndham Championship odds. Simpson (20-1) and Billy Horschel (20-1) also are top contenders in the Wyndham Championship 2022 field.
Which players can you trust for your 2022 Wyndham Championship fantasy golf picks? Before you bet the 2022 Wyndham Championship or lock in any Fantasy golf lineups, you NEED to see the 2022 Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf rankings from Fantasy expert Riley Gates.
Gates is a writer for 247Sports and has covered a range of sports for nearly six years. He has followed golf closely for much longer and has a profound knowledge of the sport. He also knows what it takes to win, on the course and in fantasy sports.
Before last week's Rocket Mortgage Championship, Gates touted Cameron Champ as one of his bargain Fantasy golfers. Champ was priced at just $7,600 at DraftKings and came away with a top-20 finish. The expert also had Will Zalatoris (T-20) and Max Homa (T-24) as worthy options for your fantasy picks and was behind Patrick Cantlay as an outright winner. The reigning FedEx Cup champ couldn't keep up with winner Tony Finau and tied for second, but anyone who followed Gates' advice surely had success with their Fantasy golf picks.
Gates also NAILED the Open Championship, going with champion Cameron Smith among his outright winners despite many experts writing off the Australian. And before last week's 3M Open, the expert touted Emiliano Grillo as one of his top longshots and also backed Sungjae Im despite his terrible recent run.
Grillo was priced at just $7,600 on DraftKings, while Im was listed at 18-1 in Caesars Sportsbook's odds. They finished in a tie for second, and Fantasy players who picked Grillo and bettors who backed Im for a solid finish cashed in huge.
Gates has been crushing his golf picks all season. For the John Deere Classic, Gates pegged 40-1 longshot J.T. Poston as a potential winner before his second tour win. At the Travelers, he was all over Sahith Theegala, who was priced at just $7,300 at DraftKings and finished as a runner-up.
Now, Gates has ranked his top players for the 2022 Wyndham Championship, and we can tell you the expert is strongly recommending Corey Conners for Fantasy players this week. The Canadian's recent funk is going to break, and the expert fully expects it to be this week on this easy Sedgefield course.
On the other hand, Gates is fading Russell Henley, who comes in as one of the favorites and was the 54-hole leader here last year. His top-10 at the Rocket Mortgage was his best finish in months, and he regressed every round last year at Sedgefield in letting a win slip away.
For this week's event in Greensboro, Gates is backing a sleeper for fantasy rosters who is priced at around $7,500! This golfer has rounded back into form after taking some time off after a bumpy period. His recent struggles will scare many people away, but Gates is using that to his advantage for his Wyndham Championship Fantasy golf picks. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who Gates is backing and check out his top picks before you lock in any Wyndham Championship 2022 fantasy golf picks!
