We’re going Carolinas heavy with this week’s top 10. Haas, a Wake Forest grad and Charlotte native, has played well in front of his home fans.
He tied for seventh in 2012, second in 2014, sixth in 2015 and 22nd in 2016. Haas has made the cut five years in a row at Sedgefield and missed only twice since playing each year since 2008.
Haas has had a prototypical Bill Haas year in that he’s racked up made cuts and top-25s, of which he has eight.
All he’s missing is a win, which seems inevitable for him one of these years at the Wyndham.
Driving accuracy will be something to watch (122nd on Tour), but at 25th in greens in regulation his iron play could keep him on the straight and narrow.
The Wyndham is always a home game for this Raleigh native. His results show his comfort level around Sedgefield in front of his hometown fans.

Simpson went 18 deep to win here by three in 2011. He’s also tied for eighth in 2010, 22nd in 2012, 11th in 2013, fifth in 2014 and sixth in 2015.
Simply put, he gets it done.
Since the anchored putter ban went into effect last year, Simpson was slow out of the gate to acclimate. He now appears to have turned a corner with three top-10s in 2017 and a current eight-tournament cut streak.
His putting isn’t great (143rd in strokes gained), but his short game and iron play have both been elite this season.
Simpson is about as close to as a lock you can get this week to get into contention.
