The 2009 Wyndham Championship begins play on Thursday, Aug. 20 and our team of writers and handicappers have put together three free picks for this week’s PGA event.
Following the PGA Championship, most of the top-level golfers take this week off, which leaves the Wyndham Championship lacking in star power, but leaves the opening for a long shot winner come Sunday.
Here are some plays to consider for this weekend’s tournament
Lucas Glover 16/1
Glover is the top ranked player in this tournament, coming in 15th in the world.
