Varner can still make impression at Wyndham

Chase is on to catch Stenson at Greensboro

Harold Varner has had a good week in the Wyndham

Henrik Stenson's motives for playing in this week's Wyndham Championship were unusual as if he had not and he failed to make the Tour Championship, the Swede would not have played the required amount of tournaments to keep his PGA Tour card.

He may be glad he did, though, as he heads into Sunday's final round with a one-shot lead over the field at the Sedgefield Country Club.

Stenson has been playing solid golf during the second half of the season after he missed the cut at the Masters - apart from another missed weekend at the US Open, his worst finish in his last nine events has been 26th - and he is such a class act it would be no surprise to see him complete the job at Greensboro.

However, he looks short enough at 13-8 so it could pay to look for a bet elsewhere as the top eight are separated by three shots.

Slowcoach Kevin Na and his fellow Americans Ollie Schniederjans and Webb Simpson - recommended at 25-1 at the start of the tournament in Racing Post Sport - are in closest attendance, but it could pay to keep a close eye on Harold Varner, who is tied for sixth.

The 27-year-old has claimed just two top-20 finishes on the tour this season, but it looks as if he is coming good at the right time as a strong finish should see him into next week's Northern Trust, the first tournament of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

He has been in superb form this week and has missed just six of 54 greens in regulation.

Varner would be even further up the leaderboard had his putter been hotter this week, but his game has been so solid that he may not fall away.

There is a decent chance he can push on and he is worth backing to finish in the top five at 13-5.

Recommendation
H Varner top-five finish
