This week we head to historic Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship.
The George Cobb-designed course is a par-71 that measures approximately 7,500 yards with Bermuda-grass greens. Course history goes a long way here, so we will target a few guys that have been successful in the past.
This is a stacked field, with Rory McIlroy opening up as the betting favorite to win the tournament, +700 at FOX Bet.
Now that we teed off with the basics, let’s approach the favorites and my outright portfolio for this tournament.
Wells Fargo Championship Odds & Field
Rory McIlroy +700 (bet $10 to win $80 total)
Patrick Cantlay +1300 (bet $10 to win $140 total)
Xander Schauffele +1400 (bet $10 to win $150 total)
Tony Finau +1500 (bet $10 to win $160 total)
Jordan Spieth +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Viktor Hovland +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Cameron Young +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Collin Morikawa +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Justin Thomas +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Matt Fitzpatrick +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Max Homa +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Sungjae Im +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Viktor Hovland (+2000 at FOX Bet)
I love Hovland this week! He hasn’t won a big one yet this season, but finished T-3 at The Players, T-10 at Arnold Palmer and T-7 at The Masters. Hovland played this course back in 2021, where he finished T-3.
He’s also gained strokes in 14 straight events, and this course fits his skill set.
“Play the course, not your opponent”
Justin Thomas (+2200 at FOX Bet)
Compared to Thomas’ standards, he is in a little bit of a rut right now. However, he isn’t playing as badly as some may think. Thomas has gained strokes off the tee in five straight tournaments and has gained over five strokes ball striking in three out of his last five events.
We spoke about course history in the introduction, and Thomas is my favorite pick in that category. What better course to turn things around than where he won his first Major back in 2017? Thomas also went 4-1 here in 2022 in the President’s Cup.
“Grip It and Rip It”
Sahith Theegala (+5000 at FOX Bet)
Long hitters will be rewarded on this course, which works well for Theegala. And in case he leaks out, the rough isn’t as bad as some other daunting courses (relatively speaking), so he’ll be able to recover. Theegala also comes into this tournament playing well and has gained strokes on the field in five straight off the tee.
His around-the-green game has also been money as of late, which started with this memorable shot on hole 16 at The Masters.
Jordan Spieth (+2000 at FOX Bet)
I love these odds for Spieth, who comes into this event on fire. Here is how he has done over his last five stroke-play events: T-4 at Arnold Palmer, T-19 at The Players, T-3 at Valspar, T-4 at The Masters and second at RBC Heritage (lost in a playoff).
Last year, Spieth also went 5-0 in the President’s Cup here, so he checks all the boxes.
Cameron Young (+2000 at FOX Bet)
Young can drive the ball with the best of them, which will be big this week. His off-the-tee game is money and his ability to attack par 5s will go a long way on this course. Young also has had three top-10 finishes in his last six events.
One big note to remember: Paul Tesori (his new caddie/ Webb Simpson’s longtime caddie) knows this course like the back of his hand.
Sungjae Im (+2200 at FOX Bet)
Im is Mr. Consistent, as he has four top-10 finishes over the last three months. Bermuda is also his favorite putting surface.
Im’s game is tailor-made for this course, and if his putter gets hot, watch out!
