Tony Finau closed out a second win in consecutive weeks as he ran away with the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. It was his fourth career victory and a sign that he may be working past his previous troubles closing out wins.

I am a big believer that winning brings more winning. Finau will certainly be a name to watch in his next few starts before the FedEx Cup Playoffs begin on Aug. 19.

This week, the TOUR travels back to the Southeast for the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC. There are a few big names in the field, headlined by local Wake Forest products, Will Zalatoris and Webb Simpson.

It is also a huge week for the lower end of the field as players jockey to secure their position inside the top 125 of the FedEx Cup Standings. Many of those narratives will be in place throughout the week to make for an even more intriguing tournament.

Wyndham Championship Best Bets

Russell Henley +3000 (DraftKings)

Only one player was better than Russell Henley in SG: Tee to Green at the Rocket Mortgage: Runaway winner, Tony Finau.

Henley was absolutely dialed-in with his ball-striking, even despite slipping with it a bit on Sunday. He gained five shots on the field with his irons and is showing great form heading into the Wyndham Championship — a tournament where he has finished in the top 10 each of the past two years.

Henley’s game is perfect for Sedgefield, and he has the momentum to carry him back into contention this week at the Wynham Championship.

Si Woo Kim +3200 (FanDuel)

I’ll happily start my card this week with two players in this range. Both Henley and Si Woo Kim are a great fit for this course and are bringing solid form.

Kim fits in for many of the same reasons as Henley. The former finished T14 at the Rocket Mortgage even though he did not bring his best on Sunday. It was still a strong result for Kim to make consecutive top 15s following a stretch of missed cuts.

He now gets to carry that positive result into a tournament where he hasn’t finished outside of the top 5 in any of his last three appearances. This seems to be a place that simply fits his eye. Given Kim’s recent results and current form, +3200 feels pretty good.

Alex Smalley +8000 Plus Each-Way (BetRivers)

Let me be the first to tell you that Alex Smalley is a member at Sedgefield Country Club — and that alone will give him a bit of buzz this week. You can find +8000 on Smalley at a couple of books, but I will take the one on BetRivers — where I can add in the six places each-way to give him some room for a top finish.

Smalley will obviously have an edge over many players in course knowledge, but he has also flashed strong form at times. He has three top 10 finishes this year and another at the RBC Canadian Open, where he contended with Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas through three rounds.

I believe that Smalley has the game to win at this level. Through the first year, it seems a course like Sedgefield could be a great fit for him to breakthrough.
