The 2015 PGA TOUR rages on this week, as some of the top players in the world gather together for the 2015 Wyndham Championship. The tournament will go down in Greensboro, North Carolina at Sedgefield Country Club, where golfers will compete for a $5,400,000 purse from August 20-23.
Some notable stars will be absent from this week’s golf tourney, as fans can forget about the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson. Despite three of golf’s biggest names not hitting the green at Sedgefield Country Club, there is plenty to follow, as Tiger Woods will look to get things back on track as he battles against the likes of Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Bill Haas, Justin Thomas, Hideki Matsuyama and Brandt Snedeker.
Even without some of the big names the sport has to offer, there’s definitely still plenty of talent involved, which is why this year’s Wyndham Championship should still be an exciting showing. Fans looking to make the trek and catch all the action can do so with Hipmunk.com, the one-stop shop in crafting one’s trip. They have a plenty of cheap Greensboro airfare to get you around the green, while also offering the perfect Greensboro hotel, with rooms starting as low as $59 for fans who want to stick around awhile and soak it all in.
While this PGA TOUR tourney isn’t as high-profile as some others, nor will it have arguably the two best golfers in the world at the moment, it definitely represents some killer value for golf fans and promises to be entertaining. Wyndham Championship tickets start off low on day one, as fans can get in and see the action start off for just $50 on average. Fans will see a solid spike on day two ($125 on average), but Wyndham Championship tickets drop back down to $40 on average on Saturday, before climbing back up to $127.08 for Sunday’s final.
This week’s tournament has the makings of a major bargain buy with two of the four scheduled days getting fans in for $50 or less. On top of the value, this should be a tight tourney, with Brooks Koepka entering the week as the odds-on favorite to take first-place. Koepka isn’t about to run away with this thing, of course, as Snedeker, Matsuyama and Scott all figure to be in the mix. The most interesting storyline may continue to be Tiger Woods, however, as he attempts yet again to round his game into form for The Barclays next week. Woods would need an epic run at this year’s Wyndham Championship to make it into the next big tourney, though, and that will be one huge storyline for everyone to track.
Of course, the biggest question is who will ultimately win, and that will likely come down to a few aforementioned big names. Bill Haas is a sneaky favorite in a field without three of the best players, as he has one win on the year and three top-five finishes. Undoubtedly, a strong favorite is Justin Thomas, who has finished inside the top-20 in each of his last three tournaments and has to be closing in on his first win of 2015. Koepka is the odds on favorite for a reason, of course, as the 25-year old will be looking for his second triumph of the season, and already has an impressive four top-five finishes under his belt. Koepka won’t have it easy come Thursday, but is slightly in the lead and could end up standing above the field when it’s all said and done at the end of the weekend.
