NOTES:
--Since the current points structure was implemented in 2009, an average of 2.5 players per year have entered the Wyndham outside of the top 125 and played their way into the playoffs.
--Austin Smotherman holds the 125th spot in the rankings with the top three players currently outside of the playoff "bubble" being Max McGreevy, Danny Willett and Justin Lower.
--No. 148 Charlie Hoffman needs to finish in the top four or better to continue his streak of qualifying for the playoffs in every season.

BEST BETS:
--Will Zalatoris (+1600 BetMGM) is the top-ranked player in the field at No. 14 as he seeks his first career PGA Tour victory. He's the biggest liability at BetMGM and accounts for 11.9 percent of the handle. Zalatoris (+1200) is the favorite at DraftKings, drawing 13 percent of the handle and 10 percent of the bets.
--Sungjae Im (+1400 at BetMGM) is coming off a T2 at the 3M Open. He's also +1400 -- though second -- at DraftKings, drawing 9 percent of the handle and 6 percent of the bets.
--Shane Lowry (+1600) is teeing it up for the first time since a T21 at The Open Championship that followed a T9 at the Irish Open.
--Billy Horschel (+1800) is also teeing it up for the first time since a T21 at The Open and won the Memorial in June. He finished second in the Wyndham in 2020.
