2015 Wells Fargo Championship
Where: Quail Hollow Club, North Carolina, USA
When: Thursday, May 14 (First tee off 9:00pm AEST)
Last week’s Players Championship was one of the best finishes that I have watched in recent times. I felt very sick for Kevin Kisner who had a putt to win in regulation and also in the playoff but came up short on both occasions. Ricky Fowler’s finish was an amazing effort. Fowler set a new record for the last four holes at the stadium course going birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie to get to 12 under. He then had an anxious wait in the clubhouse but you could see a playoff was eminent. His shot into the 17th to win the playoff was “clutch” to say the least. Congratulations Ricky Fowler.
This week the PGA heads into Charlotte as the Quail Hollow Club hosts the Wells Fargo Championship. This is a long beast of a track and you may have heard of “The Green Mile” which refers to the final three holes. We have three players on our radar this week and also a couple of back to lay options. So without further ado here are our latest PGA betting tips!
With Rory at such short odds I believe Phil is great value this weekend. This is the time of the year he will start ramping it up and he will be in our crosshairs around US open time as well. He holds the all-time top 10’s here at Quail Hallow with seven from 2004 – 2013. In 2014 he shot an unbelievable front 9 of -7 under (29) and also a 63 in round 3. He’s long off the tee and looks a big threat.

You need to drive the ball well to score at Quail Hollow. Moore ranks 16th in driving accuracy and he has played well here in recent years with two top 20’s and two top 10’s, including a T5 in 2012 @ -11 under that included a front 9 (30) -6 under.

Kokrak, “The Local”, is a Charlotte resident and averages 302 off the tee (ranked 11th). He is having a solid year and currently sits 53rd in Fed Ex cup standings. His results aren’t stellar in this event, however he is trending in the right direction with T50 and T23.
