Wyndham Championship

Sedgefield Country Club
Greensboro, NC

The PGA Tour heads to Greensboro, NC this week on the heels of the first major of the year. What a major it was. To say that Sunday leaderboard's was stacked is an understatement. Sure, the top-ranked players in the world were nowhere to be found, but the PGA Tour is so loaded right now, that even without Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy in contention there was plenty of firepower at the top. The days of the likes of Shaun Micheel and Ben Curtis winning majors appear to be long gone. 

Sunday's winner, Collin Morikawa is beginning to pull away from Viktor Hovland and Matthew Wolff as the clear leader of the Class of '19. While they all have wins, Morikawa is the only one with a major, and we all know about impressive made-cut streak that recently ended. It will be interesting to see the heights he can reach and if he will maintain his lead over Wolff and Hovland throughout his career. 

As for this week, we have the Wyndham Championship, which serves as the bridge between the first major of the season and the FedExCup Playoffs. It's the last chance for some to earn a playoff spot, and you can bet there will be drama all over the leaderboard with a top-20 result possibly making the difference between playing next week and sitting at home.
