Jim Herman was the winner of this tournament. He his spectacular comeback fuled by his third and fourth rounds of 61 and 63. Herman has not won a PGA Tour event since 2016. With a win Herman is now in the playoff race. The main part of Herman's games that stuck out was how dialed in he was with his approach shots. This was demonstrated by Herman's top 10 greens in regulation performance and his improvements on the green which he has struggled with since his last win. If Herman continues this path of success in the playoffs then I think he can be a true dark horse to make it to the tour championship.
Si Woo Kim was tied for third place in this tournament. Kim played his best golf in the second and third round shooting 65 and 62. Kim had a slim lead heading into the final round, but blew it. He shot a even par 70 to finish three shots back of the winner Jim Herman. His main struggle this week was consistency. Kim was doing fine in the beginning but then he slowly started to loose consistency which I think cost him the victory. Although Kim had a bad final round he still improved from his lackluster performances this season and showed the potential he has as a young PGA Tour golfer. Kim has now officially secured a spot in the Northern Trust Open and now needs to focus on working into a better playoff position.
Rob Oppenheim tied for fifteenth place in this tournament. Oppenheim was in a great spot after the first two rounds of 66. In this tournament Oppenheim's strength was the short game. If Oppenheim would have kept up this pace he could of had a shot of making the FedEx Cup playoffs. It all went wrong in the final round where he shot 72 which was completely unexpected due to the consistency he had in the last three rounds. Other than that abysmal final round performance Oppenheim played solid in this tournament. This performance was not enough to boost Oppenheim into the playoff''s but look out for him next year as he will be contending for a playoff spot.
The Wyndham Championship was a great tournament which showed which golfers had it in them to make the playoffs. If you want to see more articles and video's about golf and other sports go check out my channel on SportsCastr called MitchySports.
