Golf Rankings for Wyndham Championship
Bill Haas [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #41
Haas isn’t setting the world on fire, but has made four straight cuts while finishing inside the top 35 with a pair of T19s. Prior to missing the cut at Sedgefield last year he finished T10 in 2009 and T28 in 2010.
Nicolas Colsaerts [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #138
Colsaerts is a first timer at Sedgefield, but has been a solid player this season on the European Tour. He hasn’t made much noise yet playing in the states and is coming off a missed cut in the PGA Championship.
Josh Teater [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #186
After struggling all year, Teater has caught fire with three straight top-10s. He's finished T25 and T18 the last two years at Sedgefield. The combination of momentum and course history makes Teater a top dark horse selection.
Brendon de Jonge [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #87
Even though he lacks much of a resume at Sedgefield, de Jonge owns the second-longest active streak of cuts made at 15. In that span he’s finished 31st or better eight times.
Ryan Moore [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #29
Moore won at Sedgefield in 2009, but missed cut the year before and the year after. Over his last seven starts, Moore has one top-10 but no other top-25s. Unless he's able to turn back the clock, Moore may not be worth the risk.
J.B. Holmes [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #66
He’s the top distance driver in the field and owns a pair of top-15s in his last two starts. Holmes is a first timer at Sedgefield.
Charles Howell III [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #56
It’s been a struggle for Howell lately after missing six of his last 10 cuts. He’s played well at Sedgefield, however. Howell finished T4 last year and owns a T13 from 2009.
Jerry Kelly [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #110
In three career starts at Sedgefield, Kelly has a top-five from last year and two top-10s. After a slow start to the season, he's made five straight cuts with a pair of top-15s. Kelly is a decent pick for those seeking veteran savvy.
Bud Cauley [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #89
Prior missing the cut at last week’s PGA Championship, Cauley had finished fourth in two straight starts -- the True South Classic and the RBC Canadian Open. The rookie is a first timer in this event.
He’s missed three of his last five cuts, but Mallinger has also finished T11 at Congressional and solo fourth in the Reno-Tahoe Open. At Sedgefield he’s finished T12 and T3 the last two years.
Ken Duke [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #132
In 24 events this season, Duke has made 19 cuts with half a dozen top-10 finishes. He hasn't played Sedgefield since a T24 in 2009. A return trip may spark the veteran to another impressive result.
Over his last six starts, Christian had registered five finishes of 21st or better. The rookie is a first timer in this event.
