Sleeper picks: Wyndham Championship
Brendon Todd ... Making his fourth appearance in this feature and for good reason. As the last man inside the top-150 bubble entering 2013, he's put together five top 20s in only nine starts. In his last outing in Reno, he tied for 13th to match his season best. It positions him 154th in FedExCup points and 143rd in earnings. If he logged enough rounds to qualify for official stats, he'd lead the PGA TOUR in both scrambling and par-3 scoring average, and would rank T3 in par-4 scoring. Also 17th on the Web.com Tour money list in just six starts.
Matt Jones ... Closed out a T40 at the PGA Championship with a 2-under 68. It's the first time he's survived a cut in three starts in a major. It was also his first start after a three-week break following a T2 at Greenbrier and a T7 at TPC Deere Run, more evidence that his rededication has succeeded. No weaknesses in a consistent bag as he sits 39th-61st in all eight categories contributing to his all-around ranking of 11th.
Morgan Hoffmann ... Riding a wave of five consecutive cuts made that includes two top 10s and another two top 25s. Under par in exactly three rounds in each of those starts. Aggressive game is supported by ranking 11th in par breakers despite sitting 104th in greens in regulation. Also T8 in par-4 scoring average.
Brad Fritsch ... After being forced to withdraw with a back injury after making the cut in his national championship, the Canadian showed some moxie with a T20 in Reno the following week. Leads all rookies with 18 cuts made. Also ranks T37 in greens in regulation and T28 in proximity to the hole. Arrives in Greensboro slotted 128th in the FedExCup standings.
Andrew Svoboda ... As he prepares for this week's shootout in Greensboro, a solo second-place finish wouldn't reward him with enough FedExCup points to qualify for the Playoffs, so he'll have to tap into Sunday's success to play on. Arguably best known as the other product out of St. John's University (Keegan Bradley), the PGA TOUR rookie picked off his first win on the Web.com Tour at last week's Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr. Pepper. It vaulted him to 20th in earnings on the development circuit. He was 22-under for the week on the par-72 Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield, Mo.
