PAMELA MALDONADO: The PGA season is finally coming to a close with the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club. It is a par-70 and just over 7,100 yards with rolling fairways and purposely-placed bunkers from tee to green. Looking at the odds boards, Sungjae Im is the 1401 favorite, followed by Shane Lowry, Will Zalatoris, Billy Horschel, and Russell Henley rounding out the top five.

Now, because the fairways are a bit more narrow and because of the purposely-placed bunkers, I am more so looking to driving accuracy this week, putting an emphasis on iron play because the rough, it is the Bermuda grass and a little bit tougher to get out of. Plus, your experience on Bermuda grass greens and recent form. And when I say recent, I am looking at the last 16 or 20 rounds. And perhaps this is the South Korean golfer's appreciation video because there's two players that I'm eyeing this week, both of which are from South Korea.

Starting first with Joohyung Kim. Minus 130 for a top 40, plus 170 for a top 20, 35 to 1 for a win. The 20-year-old is big on the Asian tour, had his temporary membership, but just earned his tour pro card last week after placing seventh at the Rocket Mortgage.

Now, I know it is a small sample size because I did say that I'm looking at the last 20 rounds, but in the field, Kim is top 30 in driving distance. More importantly, first in driving accuracy, top 10 in greens regulation, top 30 from tee to green, and second in strokes gained around the green. Kim has gained strokes in every category in the last four tournaments that he has played, which have resulted in a solo third at the Scottish Open, solo seventh at the Rocket Mortgage just last week, and though he has never played here, he definitely fits the mold, has the skill set to contend in this field.

The second player that I am eyeing is Si Woo Kim, a player that can definitely make or break you on the weekend. Plus 130 for a top 20, 28 to 1 for a win. Kim has three straight top five finishes here at Sedgefield, including a T2 last year.

Kim is fourth in driving accuracy and perhaps could be coming into this with some really good form peaking at the right time. He had three missed cuts, however, backed that up with back-to-back top 15 finishes. T15 at the Open Championship, followed that up with the T14 last week at the Rocket Mortgage.

Now, I know that the stats are a bit jumbled. He's a hit or a miss in every category. However, Kim is mostly accurate off the tee, he's good around the green, a neutral putter, and this is a weak field. This is a good opportunity for him to find his form once again or come into this at the right time.

So those are two players that I'm eyeing this week, both from South Korea. Looking to Joohyung Kim and Si Woo Kim. You can find the odds for both players and more at the "Yahoo Sportsbook."
