"Only once in 11 years has the champion fired a 72-hole total greater than 264, with the last three winners all breaking 260. The average four-round score of these 11 champions is 261.4."

The PGA Tour is off to North Carolina for this week's Wyndham Championship which, for many players, is the most nervous tournament of the season.

When the dust finally settles on Sunday evening, the leading 125 golfers in the FedEx Cup standings will be invited to contest the opening event of the forthcoming Plays-Offs.

However, the real tension is not about qualifying for the first play-off event in New Jersey, but more to do with golfers securing their playing rights to compete on Tour during 2019-20, which tees-off again in mid-September.

And because of the re-structuring of this year's schedule, the Wyndham Championship is being staged around two weeks earlier than before.

Firing Low

As Tour venues go, Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro is one of the lowest-scoring on the calendar.

Only once in 11 years has the champion fired a 72-hole total greater than 264, with the last three winners all breaking 260.

The average four-round score of these 11 champions is 261.4, while even the 14 players to finish either second or joint-second have averaged an incredibly low 263.1.

Strong Sedgefield History

The two leading course specialists from recent years, Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker, are both teeing-up this week.

Simpson was the winner here in 2011, while Snedeker is the defending champion.

The 33-year-old Simpson, who was born 80 miles from this week's venue - in the North Carolina capital of Raleigh - is in good current form, having finished runner-up at Sunday's WGC event in Tennessee.

He stood on the podium at the Wyndham Championship in both 2017 and 2018 and, in his last nine visits to the tournament, has only once failed to finish inside the top-25.

Many eminent tipsters believe Sedgefield is a course where a strong scrambling game goes a long way.

Therefore, it's no surprise to find Simpson the owner of an impressive course history, as he is currently ranked third in the PGA Tour's category for Scrambling.

Snedeker, meanwhile, is third in the category Strokes Gained: Around The Green, so expect another big performance from him.

Chasing The Biggest Cut Of All

Historically, those players with other things on their minds, such as finishing in the top-125 of the FedEx Cup standings, tend to be so distracted by the threat of losing their playing rights for next season that they rarely find themselves in contention come Sunday afternoon.

Such issues will not affect the likes of Billy Horschel, who is playing fairly solidly right now, while same applies to Jordan Spieth and Aussie Cameron Smith.

Spieth was runner-up at Sedgefield on his only previous start in the Wyndham Championship six years ago, just a few weeks after his 20th birthday. In-form Patrick Reed, a former champ here, is also worth keeping an eye on.

Course Overview

Sedgefield has been around since the mid-1920s, and is the creation of famous architect Donald Ross.

For four decades the course hosted the Greater Greensboro Open and, after a gap of 32 years, reappeared on the PGA Tour schedule in 2008 as home of the Wyndham Championship.

Ahead of this long-awaited return, $3m was spent on restoring the layout and according to the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, the course "must be played from the green back to the tee in order to get the appropriate angle to the green. The greens at Sedgefield are very undulating and slope from back to front."

Since the upgrade was carried out 12 years ago, further changes have been made to the smaller than average putting surfaces, which switched from Bentgrass to Bermuda a few months before the 2012 tournament.

Although this lush, well-wooded parkland course has a number of ditches criss-crossing fairways, the only two sizeable water hazards arrive late in the round.
