This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.
The PGA Tour heads to North Carolina as the annual one-week respite prior to the FedEx playoffs begins. As expected, many of those gearing up for the playoffs are taking a final break before what could be a three-week run, concluding with the Tour Championship.
One player not in the field this week is Brooks Koepka, whose world domination tour continued last week in Memphis. The only thing left on the checklist is a FedEx Cup title. Oh, and a Green Jacket and a Claret Jug. But you get the point, the man just continues to amaze.
As for this week, there are no confusing scenarios involving an event moving sites and two defending champs. We have a ton of course history to consider as Sedgefield Country Club has been host since 2008. A nice mix of young guns and proven veterans should lead to a fun weekend.
This Week: Wyndham Championship – Sedgefield Country Club, Greensboro, N.C.
Webb Simpson (10-1)
This looks like one of those "too good to be true" situations. Simpson has an outstanding track record at this event, he's in good form and there isn't a lot in his way. Simpson, who grew up in nearby Raleigh and went to Wake Forest, won this event in 2011 and has six top-10s in his last nine starts here.
