Fantasy Golf Picks: The Wyndham Championship

Fantasy Golf Picks: Ryan Moore

Fantasy Golf Picks: Ryan Moore

The Wyndham Championship golf tournament is set for Aug. 16-19 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. That means it's time to pick your optimal fantasy golf lineup. Fortunately, our fantasy golf experts are ready to help. 

Here's what our best Wyndham Championship 2018 lineup looks like for DraftKings:

Webb Simpson ($11,600)

Fantasy Golf Picks: Wyndham Championship

Defending champ Henrik Stenson is battling a balky elbow, making Simpson the clear favorite this week. Webb's weaving quite a season: 6th in scoring, 12th in SG: Putting, 13th in SG: Total. Oh, and he's second all time in earnings at the Wyndham with a win (2011) and five top-15 finishes. This week will let him do a little points racing heading into the FedEx Cup playoffs.   

Ryan Moore ($9,000)

Moore (pictured above) seems ready-made for the Wyndham: He's 4th in driving accuracy and 17th in SG: Tee-to-Green. He's shown a lot of under-the-radar consistency this year, with four top 10s and eight top-20 finishes. Played the weekend at the PGA. T24 here last year and T10 in 2015.    

Kevin Tway ($8,100)

Since a couple of missed cuts in the spring, Tway's been cruising, with three top 10s and lots of nice paydays (only one missed cut since The Players). Third-round co-leader at the Canadian Open before a final-round fade.  

Chris Kirk ($7,500)

Kirk's sneaky consistent, with only one missed cut since mid-February and two top 10s during that stretch. Finished T31 at the PGA with no round worse than even-par 70, so his current form is solid. 13th in SG: Approach-the-Green, which will come in handy at a course that de-emphasizes distance.  

Brian Gay ($7,100)

Gay played the weekend at Bellerive and had two top 10s in four starts before that. He's made his money on the greens this year (20th in SG: Putting). A fun guy to root for given his comeback from back surgery. 

Zac Blair ($6,600)

Blair's strictly a cheap flyer this week, but if you temper your expectations, you might not be disappointed, and that's the name of the game for a sixth pick. Blair has made eight of his last nine cuts, including a T15 at the Barbasol. His lack of distance is less of a factor at Sedgefield, and he's solid once he gets it close (10th in SG: Around-the-Green).
