AmericaIn addition to the championship race with $ 1,152 million in prize money, Matthew Wolff is also wide open to hold another $ 1 million at the Wyndham Championship this week.

Wolff will fight the Wyndham Championship – a PGA Tour event with a $6.4 million prize fund in North Carolina – from today August 12. This event concludes the regular prize program of the PGA Tour 2020-2021, and summarizes the Risk Reward Challenge (RRC).

RRC is a season long race with a million USD for the winner with a minimum of 40 rounds. In which, the Organizing Committee takes the average of the two best results at a pre-designated hole at each tournament. The final results are based on the average of the RRC hole performance over 47 tournaments.

Wolff is leading this race with a score of -1,105 – 1,105 under par through 38 laps. He is followed by Cameron Smith (points -0.92), Louis Oosthuizen (-0.90). However, Wolff had the upper hand, as only Oosthuizen and him attended Wyndham.

Wolff needed two more rounds to qualify for the prize, while the other two heavyweights passed the minimum requirement.

The RRC hole in the Wyndham Championship is a 545-yard par5 15th hole belonging to the Sedgefield Country Club. It has a water hazard that pulls from the front to the right of the green. The PGA Tour said that at this “stage”, 87% of the golfers participating in the tournament were able to get to the green on the second shot.

Without Smith, Wolff will win RRC if he reaches a total score of -1 on hole 15 over the next two rounds. If even par, he finished -1. Meanwhile, to reach this milestone, Oosthuizen needs two eagles. In contrast, Smith will finish first in RRC, if Wolff +2 goes through two turns of the 15th hole, and Oosthuizen maxes out at -2.

Wolff has been on the PGA Tour since 2019 and won the 3M Open the same year he started playing. The American player born in 1999 surprised the experts with an unorthodox, but effective swing. He bounced a few times as he loaded the swing, lifted his heel first, pointed the clubhead in the air after that, followed the hook line and then came in right in the second half of the swing.

Despite belonging to the “heretic faction” and this season resting his stick for two months to take care of his mental health, Wolff still received more than $ 2.5 million in prize money through 18 events. The governing organization calls the PGA Tour2020-2021 a “super season” with 50 stages, including all three playoffs after the Wyndham Championship.
