With the dramatics of the weekend’s US PGA still fresh in the memory, attention turns to the Wyndham Championship at Greensboro, starting Thursday.
This tournament represents the penultimate opportunity for players to qualify for the season-ending FedEx Cup series, and many of the game’s elite are taking a break already assured of their positions.
The favourite is Henrik Stenson, a late addition to the field, who is playing to make sure he keeps his US card. Next in the betting is Kevin Kisner, the 54-hole leader of last weekend’s PGA, who may still be feeling some of the associated scars of letting a major slip through his fingers.
Instead we’ll look a little further down the betting coupon. Bud Cauley finished tied 33rd at Quail Hollow but hung around until the finish to congratulate his good mate Justin Thomas. As Thomas benefitted from the good vibes surrounding his friend Jordan Speith’s Open win, we think there’s a chance Cauley can also enter the winners’ enclosure.
Additionally, Chez Reavie performed well last weekend, without being in the real heat of battle, and has form at this course. We’ll take a punt on this native of Wichita, Kansas.
Bud Cauley, 1pt each way, 45/1 Bet365
Chez Reavie, 0.5pts each way, 66/1 generally available
