Kevin Kisner has walked away from Greensboro a richer man all five times he’s came. He hasn’t played the Wyndham Championship since 2017, but has top-10s in 2014 and 2016 and two more top-50s.
A T-8th in 2014 (69-64-67-67) helped the former Georgia Bulldog get his career going. He was already a top-50 player in the world by the time he came back for T-10th (70-67-67-63) in 2016.
The Aiken, South Carolina native should feel comfortable on Bermuda greens this week.
Honestly though, grass type really doesn’t matter too much when you’re as steady as Kis with the flat stick. He’s 25th on Tour in strokes gained putting (.467) and was in the top 20 the previous two seasons.
A lack of length hurts Kisner some weeks, but not this one. Sedgefield rewards accuracy and Kisner is 35th in fairways hit (65.5%).
Good iron play is also of value. He had it going last week at TPC Harding Park where he was 10th in SG approach (1.22).The 36-year-old is in good form coming into the week. He was third at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, T-25th at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and T-19th at the PGA Championship.
He also has a T-4th back in January at the Sony Open.
Kisner won the WGC-Match Play in 2019, but hasn’t won a stroke play event since 2017. This is a good opportunity to change that.
