Round 4 Recap - Sunday

Jim Herman wins the Wyndham Championship

Herman ($6,100) caught fire with the flat stick on the weekend and vaulted from almost missing the cut, all the way to a one-shot victory at Sedgefield Country Club. Herman shot a 61-63 on the weekend to claim his third PGA TOUR victory adding the Wyndham Championship to his wins at the Shell Houston Open and the Barbasol Championship. Herman jumped 138 spots in the FedExCup standings to well within the top-125, so he’ll be in the field now for next week’s playoff opener at The Northern Trust. Zach Johnson ($7,000) also earned a spot in the playoffs with a strong T-7 finish after shooting a five-under-par in the Final Round. — Zach Thompson


Denny McCarthy, Kevin Kisner surge on Sunday while Si Woo Kim fades

The Wyndham Championship finished with a shootout down the stretch with Jim Herman ($6,100) getting the win. Herman’s Final Round seven-under-par 63 was matched by Denny McCarthy ($6,900), who surged to a T-9 while Kevin Kisner ($8,300) and Patrick Reed ($10,700) fired 6-under-par rounds to finish T-3 and T-9, respectively. Kisner ended up tied with Si Woo Kim ($8,600), who led after the third round but faded on Sunday with a bad double-bogey on the sixth hole and another dropped shot on the 17th that moved him even with Kisner. Billy Horschel ($9,100) ended up in solo second just one shot behind Herman after leading for much of the day after he caught and passed Kim. - Zach Thompson



Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Si Woo Kim leads heading into Final Round of Wyndham Championship

Kim ($8,600) was tied for the lead heading into the third round of the Wyndham Championship, but he has sole possession of the lead heading into Sunday. He shot an eight-under-par 62 on Saturday, which brings his total to 18-under-par for the tournament. He holds a two-stroke lead over Rob Oppenheim ($6,100) and Doc Redman ($7,800), who are currently tied for second. Kim is now the odds-on favorite to win the tournament at +125 on DraftKings Sportsbook, while Redman sits in second at +450. Both players have also provided excellent fantasy value at relatively low ownership: Redman was owned in approximately 12.5% of DK lineups and Kim checked in around 10%. — Matt LaMarca


Jim Herman, Zach Johnson go low on moving day

Herman ($6,100) and Johnson ($7,000) both had excellent rounds on Saturday to put themselves in contention at the Wyndham Championship. Both players shot 61, which was good for a score of nine-under-par. Herman moved up to T-5 heading into Sunday, and he currently sits four shots behind leader Si Woo Kim ($8,600). Johnson is six strokes behind Kim, which puts him in a tie for ninth place. Despite the strong efforts, neither player is really considered a huge threat to win by the DraftKings Sportsbook. Herman is currently listed at +4000, while Johnson is listed at +7000. — Matt LaMarca



Round 2 Recap — Friday

The top of the leaderboard is crowded at the Wyndham Championship

Heading into the weekend, we have a four-way tie for the lead at the Wyndham. Talor Gooch ($6,900; 83.5 DKFP), Tom Hoge ($6,500; 84.5 DKFP), Billy Horschel ($9,100; 80.5 DKFP) and Si Woo Kim ($8,600; 85 DKFP) all have a share of the lead at 10-under par. Of the four, Horschel had the best round on Friday, finishing with a 64. In what should be a fun finish, DK Sportsbook currently has Horschel (+750) as the favorite to win. Kim (+800) has the next best odds. — Greg Ehrenberg


Third-round tee times moved up at Wyndham Championship

Inclement weather is expected for Saturday at the Wyndham Championship, so tee times are being moved up in anticipation. All groups will go off in threesomes between 7-9 a.m. ET, with half the groups going off on the first tee and the other half teeing off on No. 10. Tom Hoge ($6,500), Si Woo Kim ($8,600), Talor Gooch ($6,900) and Billy Horschel ($9,100) are all tied for the lead at 10-under-par, and five golfers are just one shot back. Horschel is currently the betting favorite at +750 on DraftKings Sportsbook, while Kim and Webb Simpson ($11,200) are just slightly behind at +800. — Matt LaMarca

Round 1 Recap — Thursday



Webb Simpson shoots 66, tied for 13th after opening round at Wyndham Championship

Simpson ($11,200; 28.5 DKFP) got off to a good start at the Wyndham Championship, carding a first round score of 4-under. That puts him in a tie for 13th place, and he’s just four shots back of first round leaders Harold Varner ($7,600), Tom Hoge ($6,500) and Roger Sloan ($6,300). Simpson entered the tournament as the betting favorite, and he remains the favorite at +750 at DraftKings Sportsbook following his strong outing on Thursday.
