Wells Fargo Championship 2019, Outright Preview

337

The PGA Tour continues this week at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina with the Wells Fargo Championship and Rory Mcilroy tops the betting boards.

Quail Hollow is now a par 71 layout and it generally suits the long hitters, accuracy is also important though and it certainly is a challenging layout and finding the Greens in Regulation is always critical.

Rory Mcilroy who won this event in 2015 currently tops the betting boards at 6/1 with Jason Day and Rickie Fowler tucked in behind at 12/1, Justin Rose at 15/1 and you can get 20/1 and better the field.

Selections

Webb Simpson each way at 22/1

Simpson has had some pretty consistent form here over the years and he has a runner-up and a Top 5 finish to his credit.  Last year he finished just outside the Top 20.  He has also been very consistent of late with a Top 5 and a Top 20 in his last two starts.

 

Sergio Garcia each way at 35/1

Garcia looks very well priced at 35/1 and he finished runner-up in the team event last week and has had some consistently good finishes this season.  You are going to have to go back to 2005 to find when Sergio Garcia was runner-up at this course and he has not played it alot in recent years and did miss the cut two years ago.  I just have this feeling that Garcia is going to win again soon and want him on my side this week.

 

Nick Watney each way at 125/1

Watney has had some strong showings here over the years and last year was particularly impressive with a runner-up finish.  It was important as his game had been in the doldrums for a good while.  His recent form is nothing to write home about, although he did partner up for a Top 10 finish last week and he looks a worthy long shot in North Carolina.

 

Kyle Stanley each way at 140/1

My second triple figure pick for the week is Kyle Stanley who finished in the Top 15 here last year and who, while he hasn’t been in the greatest of form of late, has been fairly consistent with a couple of Top 25 finishes in his last 4 starts
