This week, the PGA Tour presents golf fans with the 2022 Wyndham Championship.
Before I discuss my favorite tournament prop bets for the 2022 Wyndham Championship let’s take a look at the current leaders in scoring average on the PGA Tour that are in this week’s field.
Top Five Golfers in Scoring Average
- Shane Lowry 69.44
- Will Zalatoris 69.90
- Keith Mitchell 69.91
- Denny McCarthy 69.94
- Russell Henley 69.97
Now that we have established who the top five golfers with regard to scoring average are on the PGA Tour (in this week’s field) let’s shift our attention to my favorite tournament prop bets for this week’s 2022 Wyndham Championship.
Top South Korean: Si Woo Kim +275
Si Woo Kim arrives at this week’s 2022 Wyndham Championship on the heels of two consecutive top 15 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a 14th place result at last week’s 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Due to the fact that Si Woo Kim performed so well at the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic, I decided to take a hard look at Kim’s player statistics relative to the field.
After four rounds of competitive play at the 2022 Wyndham Championship, in relation to the field, Si Woo Kim ranked 11th in strokes gained putting (4.58) and sixth in strokes gained around the green (3.25).
It should also be noted that Si Woo Kim finished second at the 2021 Wyndham Championship.
To Miss Cut: Davis Riley +150
Full disclosure, Davis Riley started the year playing outstanding golf, highlighted by a second place result at the Valspar Championship in March. However, Davis Riley’s most recent results are NOT good. More specifically, Riley has finished no better than 64th in his last three tournaments played on the PGA Tour.
