2024 Wells Fargo Championship Course: Quail Hollow Golf & Country Club

This course is long as it’s a Par 71 at over 7500 yards, but it’s scorable as Wyhdham Clark went -19 last year playing the Par 5’s in -10, and that’s how to attack this course.

The last 5 winners here have gone -6 or better across all the Par 5’s so length off the tee is a big advantage.

The course has some nice dog-leg holes and a few holes with water hazards, and the fairways are tree-lined so players can’t be too inaccurate off the tee.

Long iron play will be key to limiting bogeys on the Par 4’s so shorter players are really at a disadvantage here. The weather will be a bit cool this week with a small chance of some thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday, but nothing too bad.

2024 Wells Fargo Championship: Players That Can Trip You Up

Max Homa

He’s won here twice in the last four years, and he finished 8th here last year, but he’s not been great this year, and he really went all in on The Masters, but he followed that up with a 55th-place finish the next week.

The last 3 months he’s only +0.78 total strokes gained, and he’s been pretty bad off the tee, and that’s a big problem here.

His approaches haven’t been great, and his putting has been his saving grace so far, but at this long course, you can’t be bad off the tee and compete for the win. He’s priced as a Top 7 player this week, and I think he’ll disappoint.

Rory McIlroy

McIlroy as the betting favorite, this never goes well. McIlroy won the Zurich, and although he played way better than his partner, he still only has 1 finish better than 19th this season.

He has great history here, but he was 47th last year, and I can’t bet on him at this price when he’s consistently finishing 20th or worse.

Jordan Spieth

I have to bring him up again as he’s priced as a Top 20 golfer, and this is after he missed the cut last week in a bad field. In the last six tournaments, he has one finish better than 39th, and four missed cuts.

His approaches are terrible right now at -0.11, in the last three months and his putting and around the green just isn’t saving him like it normally does. I would bet on him to finish in the Top 40 right now, let alone the Top 20.

2024 Wells Fargo Championship: DraftKings Darlings

Taylor Moore $6700

Pretty simple here as he’s made the cut in all 11 tournaments he’s played in this year, and he’s made the cut in both years he’s played here (2023, 2022). Great numbers in T2G, I like him to make the cut this year.

Rickie Fowler $6900

Fowler has quietly made the cut in six out of seven events, and he’s finished 14th and 21st here the last two years. Less than $7000 is an incredible price for him to make the cut and get us weekend points.

Stephen Jaeger $7500

Jaeger is long off the tee, and great around the green, and he’s finished 20th or better in three out of the last four weeks. He finished 27th and 6th here the last two years, he’s a great value at $7500.

Rest Of Lineup: Hideki Matsuyama $8900, Sahith Theegala $9100, Wyndham Clark $10,500

Questions for Nick: 

Ludvig Aberg is sitting out this week with knee soreness, Will Zalatoris WD last week with back soreness You worried? 

Only 3 golfers in this field have finished 30th or better in 6 straight tournaments. Xander Schauffele, Alex Noren and Si Woo Kim? 

How much sleep did Ben Kohles get Sunday night?
