The 5 best places to watch the Wells Fargo Championship

The 5 best places to watch the Wells Fargo Championship

Hadwin plays for the first time since the Masters and was 61 here in 2016.

SportsLine's prediction model, which was built by DFS pro Mike McClure, was all over Tiger Woods' resurgence at the Valspar Championship. With four top-10 finishes in his last nine starts, Moore could be a sneaky good value option to win this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Reds won the tie once last Tuesday night, and they can do it again tonight in Rome, although in all honesty they have already booked their spot in the final in Kiev on May 26 - the bookies go no bigger than 1/14 about them qualifying.

If you're wondering what you can expect from Tiger this week, that exact issue was discussed in this week's FORE Questions.

The course flexed for the major, but this is a private, member-owned club when not hosting PGA Tour events. McIlroy is a resilient character and you can be sure that he will return to Quail Hollow with lots of positive memories.

PGA Tour Live: You can also watch early Thursday and Friday action (featured groups and featured holes) via PGA Tour Live, which costs $5.99 per month or $39.99 per year. The course is a 7,554-yard par 71 that demands length and accuracy off the tee.

Murray gave us a decent run when a fast-finishing 14th at the Houston Open - which Steve Rawlings notes a useful correlation with Quail Hollow in his tournament preview. "It's longer and it's more hard". The last three holes are known as the Green Mile and are an absolute beast. They're tied for trhe lead at 3-under par, ahead of Adam Hadwin, Russell Henley and Aaron Baddeley by one shot.


Adam Scott continues his search for form when he returns to competition for the first time since missing the cut at the Texas Open two weeks ago, his history at Quail Hollow a chequered one.

Ruffels is clearly capable of playing at the highest level and while he is yet to put together four good rounds in a PGA TOUR event in his limited opportunities there is no reason it can't happen this week. Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship last summer at Quail Hollow. "It's weird. The greens are slow".

"When I talked to Mr. Nicklaus past year, he said he adjusted his game plan according to how he was playing", Thomas said. Putting is always important but this course is not known for the most challenging greens.

As mentioned previously, there's a really, really strong field teeing it up this week. And Tiger, of course.

The 2017 Wells Fargo Championship was the largest sporting event Wilmington has hosted in decades.

"I had a number of my friends who were playing in the tournament tell me that tee was better suited as a lemonade stand", Harris joked in the video of the new tee box on the fourth hole.

Clara's Shane Lowry along with Seamus Power and Graeme McDowell are all among the field later today as the PGA Tour switches to the Wells Fargo championship at Quail Hollow. The 28-year-old set the course record in 2015 en route to setting a tournament scoring record at 21-under. It's wonderful now that I'm playing the same tournament as he, so I hope I can play with him on the weekend.
