77th Annual Wyndham Championship

This weekend, I will have the pleasure of covering one of the most classic golf tournaments in America. I will be heading to Sedgefield Country Club to cover the 77th annual Wyndham Championship In Greensboro North Carolina. I was at this event last year as Tiger Woods played his last event of the season. That moment truly opened my eyes to the game of golf and I have been hooked since. This year, the competition looks like a slightly younger field of players, but will still include some of golf’s greats like Ernie Els and Davis Love III. I believe that this year’s competition will allow for a younger guy to pull through on Sunday.

While I will be rooting for local guys like Harold Varner III and Webb Simpson, my money is on Spanish rookie Jon Rahm. Since leaving Arizona State and getting his first crack at the PGA Tour, he has not finished outside the top 10 yet. He was highly successful throughout college and he has not wasted time

showing why since graduating. I believe with this younger field of players, this weekend could be his opp

ortunity for a first career victory. He has been locating fairways and greens on a consistent basis. His iron striking, I would put right behind guys like Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson. His putting has been off by an inch on occasions, but I believe that is all completely mental. I think playing in a smaller tournament without the pressure of the big dogs (DJ, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, etc.) shaking up his momentum will help him get over the hump of getting that first PGA victory under his belt.
