Three against the field at the Wyndham

Young Chez Reavie has already shot 62 twice this year, was 10th here last year and he has an early tee time. Mr Reavie ticks a lot of boxes this week and is hard to ignore.

It's last chance saloon for those hoping to make the FedEx Cup but will Dan Geraghty be backing any of those low in the rankings?

So, the Majors are over for another year and it was left to the rake thin Keegan Bradley to thwart the Chubby Slam and spare American blushes. The next Major (The Masters, in April) is a long way off but there's no rest for the wicked and we must dust off the laptops and prepare for battle at the Wyndham Championship.

Brandt Snedeker [26.0] has had a fine year, he's racked up five top 10s and a win at the Heritage and when you consider his last four years at this tournament have read 8/5/69/1, I think he should be shorter than his current [26.0]. It's true that his win in 2007 came on a different course but his form here at Sedgefield is not to be sneezed at and he rates the man to beat this week.

Chez Reavie [80.0] has been in fine form recently, he has four top 20s in his last five outings. The young American has already shot 62 twice this year, was 10th here last year and he has an early tee time. Mr Reavie ticks a lot of boxes this week and is hard to ignore.

Henrik Stenson [100.0] has struggled in recent times but he brings a touch of class to this field. The Swede struggled with illness last year but played on regardless so his missed cut here last year is easily forgiven. His appearance this week is a clear attempt at making the next stage of the FedEx cup, Stenson currently lies in 155th place, and he needs a solid week here to climb into the top 125 that move onwards. While his form in America this season leaves a lot to be desired, he made a run at the US Open recently and his form in Europe has certainly been promising. With the pressure on, I think the former Players Championship hero is worth chancing this week.

Dangers: Jason Bohn [180.0] clearly likes this tournament, he has no recent form but his form figures at this tournament read 2/2/3 so he is hard to ignore. Webb Simpson's [21.0] price keeps getting shorter and shorter but the pressure of getting over the line is clearly weighing heavy on his mind. Garrett Willis [140.0] has shot some low rounds here, Paul Krishnamurty makes a case for him here. Bill Haas [25.0] and Ben Crane [60.0] are in decent form and must rate dangers in this field.
