2023 Wyndham Championship fantasy golf rankings, picks, strategy: Back Si Woo Kim, fade Hideki Matsuyama

The 2022-23 PGA Tour regular season wraps up this week in the first tournament of August. The tour visits Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina for the 2023 Wyndham Championship beginning on Thursday. The results of the tournament will also firm up the top 75 players in the FedEx Cup standings for next week’s playoffs. In addition, 2022 champion Tom Kim withdrew from the field, ensuring there will not be a repeat champion in the event.

Sungjae Im (+1600) is the betting favorite in the latest 2023 Wyndham Championship odds, followed by Hideki Matsuyama (+1800) and Sam Burns (+2000). In addition to the top players on the PGA odds board, can Justin Thomas (+2800) bounce back and provide strong value among your 2023 Wyndham Championship fantasy golf picks? Before considering any 2023 Wyndham Championship fantasy golf picks or PGA Tour bets, be sure to see the Wyndham Championship fantasy golf rankings from SportsLine handicapper Eric Cohen.

Cohen is an avid golf bettor who correctly predicted the pre-tournament outright winner of the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic (Rickie Fowler +1400), 2023 PGA Championship (Brooks Koepka +2000), 2023 Honda Classic (Chris Kirk +3500), 2022 Open Championship (Cameron Smith +2200), 2022 U.S. Open (Matt Fitzpatrick +2500), and 2022 Phoenix Open (Scottie Scheffler’s first career victory at +2800).

He is a daily contributor to SportsLine’s YouTube Show “Early Edge in 5” and is a guest on “The Early Wedge” SportsLine YouTube golf show hosted by Jonathan Coachman. Cohen also has correctly predicted three correct finishing position parlays in May/June on SportsLine’s Early Edge in 5 on YouTube. Anyone who has followed Cohen’s predictions is way up on their golf picks.

Now, Cohen has ranked his top golfers for the 2023 Wyndham Championship. Cohen’s picks are only available at SportsLine.

2023 Wyndham Championship expert picks

One player Cohen loves this week is Si Woo Kim. He won this event in 2016 and has tremendous results beyond that performance. Kim has four top-five finishes at the Wyndham Championship, and he is also the highest-ranked player in the field when it comes to the current FedEx Cup standings. Course history isn’t the only positive, as Kim is in strong form right now. He has gained more than two shots as a ball striker in seven of the last eight tournaments, and Kim won the Sony Open earlier this season in Hawaii. He has five top-10 finishes this season.

On the flip side, the expert is fading Matsuyama. Matsuyama has missed the cut four times at the Wyndham Championship, including the last two appearances in 2019 and 2021. Matsuyama remains a strong player, but he does not have a top-three finish this season and also has a missed cut recently at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Matsuyama also has documented issues with his putter. He is 124th in strokes gained putting on the PGA Tour this season, and Matsuyama is also 78th in putting average and 72nd in putts per round.

For this week, Cohen is backing several underdogs in his 2023 Wyndham Championship fantasy golf picks, including one massive longshot who comes in at 80-1. Cohen says this player could be in for a strong performance “if he can gain more than a shot off the tee for the first time since March.” See who it is, and get all of Cohen’s fantasy golf picks, at SportsLine.
