Date: Thursday August 19 – Sunday August 22nd
Event: Wyndham Championship
Course: Sedgefield Country Club, Greensboro, North Carolina
Purse: $5.1 million
Defending Champ: Ryan Moore
FedEX Cup Points Up For Grabs: 500

Sigh. The four majors are finished for 2010. That means the year is over, right? We’ll, not completely. We still have the Ryder Cup on the docket and also the “playoffs.” Before we start that home stretch, there’s one “regular-season” event remaining: the Wyndham Championship.

Who are the best bets for this week’s tourney at Sedgefield Country Club, which rewards driving accuracy?

THE CONTENDERS

Carl Pettersson

Wyndham Championship odds: +1850

The books are high on Pettersson this week. He won the Wyndham in 2008 and was a respectable 24th at the PGA last week. Pettersson also ranks third on Tour in putting – another skill that helps at Sedgefield.

Ryan Moore

Wyndham Championship odds: +2250

Moore’s win here last year wasn’t a fluke, as he was second in the field in fairways hit. This year, he’s 24th on Tour in that crucial stat category. Since his confidence should be high at his old stomping grounds, he’s a fine pick.

SOLID PICKS

Jonathan Byrd

Wyndham Championship odds: +3250

Byrd is one of the hotter or at least most consistent players in the field, with four top-25 finishes in his last five starts. He was 24th at the Wyndham last year and flashed an ability to go low, dropping three eagles.

J.J. Henry

Wyndham Championship odds: +3250

Henry has the right skill set for this tournament. He was sixth in putting during his recent second-place finish at Turning Stone and he placed fourth at Sedgefield last year, cracking the top 20 in fairways and putting. He’s not the most exciting choice but he’s solid.

THE SLEEPERS

Michael Sim

Wyndham Championship odds: +4550

Sim could be this week’s sentimental favorite as a long shot who just locked up his 2011 Tour Card. Sim is a crackerjack putter, 21st overall and best on Tour from 20-25 feet. If he gets hot, who knows what he could do?

Alex Cejka

Wyndham Championship odds: +4550

Cejka looks like an excellent play this week, as he’s experienced, offers good sportsbook value and has the right game for Sedgefield. He’s 18th on Tour in driving accuracy and has four top-10s in his last seven tries worldwide.

Woody Austin

Wyndham Championship odds: +5250

Austin has the most momentum of anyone in this week’s field, having posted back to back top-10 finishes. He putted beautifully in each of those efforts and has recorded nine consecutive rounds under par. That’s not too shabby for a guy who pays at better than 50 to 1.

THE PICK

I went for the deepest of the deep sleepers last week and Jeff Overton burned me, so I’m scared off picking Woody Austin, Instead, I like a moderate sleeper like Alex Cejka. The weak field this week won’t intimidate him and he does what you must do to win the Wyndham Championship: keep the ball in the fairway.

Pick: Alex Cejka +4550
