Wyndham Championship 2023
Midjourney's take on a gentleman working at Wyndham and playing golf.

Wyndham Championship 2023

Wyndham Championship 2023. Here's our preview, stats analysis and betting picks.
Chairman's note:
We are taking a break from sharing larger betting cards for now. Development of models is taking too much time and we'll focus on model and macro trends based betting for now.

Now onto the preview made with assistance of an American journalist who loves to write in a dramatical way.

The Wyndham Championship 2023 arrives as a symbol of finesse, precision, and absolute mastery over the golfing art. The Sedgefield Country Club, a playground for the accurate drivers and wedge wizards, hosts the event. A preview of this grand competition reveals a dance with angles, the harmony of woods, and the fickle temperament of Bermuda greens.


The Wyndham Championship is not just about a game of golf; it's a poetic journey through the Carolina woods. The very essence of the game is manifested here in its challenging landscape and profound contrasts:

  • Location: Par 70, 7,131 yards, Sedgefield Country Club
  • Design: Donald Ross masterpiece
  • Nature: Tree-lined parkland, heavily wooded, rolling fairways; feel the Carolina humidity on your skin
  • Difficulty: Averaged-1.24 under par (2018-2022), 13th easiest, yet deceptive in its simplicity

The Wyndham Championship 2023 prepares a stage where the keenest minds will prevail, crafting tales of triumph, and memories of narrow misses.

The Course: A Portrait

A meticulous analysis of Sedgefield reveals secrets hidden within its embrace:

  • Narrow Fairways: 9th narrowest at 29 yards, beckoning precision OTT
  • Greens and Rough: Bermuda greens, 6,000 sq. feet, fast 12.5+ stimp, with the rough at 2.5" Bermuda
  • Hole Distribution: 12 par-4s (9 under 440), 4 par-3s (2 at 200+), 3 par-5s (easiest on Tour)
  • Challenges: Four toughest holes include two 500+ par 4s, two 225+ par 3s

Sedgefield's contrasts, the narrow "Less Than Driver" tracks, and one of the toughest "Scrambling From the Rough" courses on Tour with only a 42.7% success rate all add up to a compelling narrative.

Key Stats for Sedgefield

These are the virtues that would lead to success:

  • Accurate Drivers: Emphasis on precision
  • Wedge/Short Iron Wizards: Creative approaches
  • Consistent Bermuda Putters: Mastery over the unpredictable
  • 3-Putt Avoiders: Essential for success

Birdies on both Par 5s will be the norm, and playing from the fairways is an absolute must. The course ranks in the top 10 narrowest fairways on the PGA TOUR since 2015 at 29 yards.


  • What makes the Wyndham Championship 2023 so unique? Last competition of the PGA Tour's regular schedule before playoffs of top 70 will start. Many prevalent major winners are still looking for a spot in the playoffs.
  • Who are likely to succeed at this Championship? Accurate drivers, wedge experts, and those adept in handling Bermuda putting surfaces.
  • What are the specific challenges of this course? Narrow fairways, unpredictable Bermuda rough, four extremely challenging holes, and the requirement for precision in every shot.
