OVERVIEW

The PGA Tour returns back to normal play this week as we head to Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship. The course plays to long hitters as it’ll play about 7,600 yards this week. The Par 5’s on the course are the four easiest holes, so making sure that you’re carding birdies at worst should be the ideal play for the guys we target. The Green Mile gets all of the attention this week as the closing three holes are the most difficult holes on the course. Finishing these three holes cumulatively at Par is the goal and if your guy is leading by only a shot heading to 16, it should make for quite the swings in scores come Sunday. We’ve seen some longshots win here more recently (Hahn, Derek Ernst – 2013) as well as some longer shot players finishing runner-up (Watney, Wise, Castro, Rodgers) which gives even more merit to taking some shots on either in form value plays or those who have a game fit for success here. If you’re leading 1AD leagues, your play is either Rory, Day or Rose (assuming you haven’t burned any of them yet), if you’re trailing I like Rose, Day, BHA, Phil in that order. Day’s health is a wild card right now and should keep people off of him until they can get confirmation that he’s 100% (which might not ever happen).
