Rory McIlroy tied for clubhouse lead at PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship

After a "bye week" from DraftKings golf due to the format of the Zurich Classic, we are finally back!

If you get there early enough, you can have a seat and check out the action on this newly converted par 4. Paul Casey and Jason Day were among seven players at 69. McIlroy, the only two-time victor of this tournament, was within one shot of the lead with seven holes to play. "I've got everything in place for both sides of it, so I'm not going to be bothered if I make it".

Quail Hollow Club is a private George Cobb design located south of downtown Charlotte. In this second season on tour, (he won during his rookie campaign), he's also registered four further top-20s including last time at San Antonio. The 27-year-old was a runner-up at Quail Hollow last year, which seems to have been forgotten. "It's something I've really circled this year, and I'm trying my best to qualify for the team".

Peterson was only part of the show on a warm and breezy day at Quail Hollow, site of the PGA Championship last summer. McIlroy is the best bet on the board in terms of picking a victor for the Wells Fargo Championship. That being said, course history should not be weighed as heavily as it is in other tournaments.

Rory McIlroy could well be that man. You probably won't because you're not playing well. FedExCup leader: Justin Thomas.

Cobb's retirement, though not a surprise, was nonetheless the latest evolution for a legal team marked by turnover. Neither Cobb nor Flood immediately responded to requests for comment.


A special moment was captured on the golf course at Quail Hollow Club Wednesday, and the Wells Fargo Championship hasn't even officially started yet. Though it might play a little differently since it is not a major, it is something that can not be ignored. After a third place finish at the RBC, List disappointed his owners (myself included) who took him at the Valero Texas Open, missing the cut that week. Rory McIlroy, a two-time victor of this event, was among those one shot behind. Fleetwood hasn't missed a cut since the Memorial last June, and is contending against all loaded fields.

A birdie at the 16th extended his advantage, before McIlroy drained a 40-footer at the last to complete a course record-breaking round of 62 and see him become the youngest PGA Tour victor since Tiger Woods.

Tony Finau ($8,700) is also worth a look in this next range. "I drove it great on the weekend, but I kept hitting the ball in, and if I did hit a green, I hit above the hole". He knows that won't be the case in the second round when he will be in one of the first groups off the tee. I feel like I can play my game around here and that served me pretty well over the years. "I need to continue working on it and get sharp". The setup for this week will be 7,442 yards and par 72. He's playing well but don't love the price tag and he'll be heavily owned across the board. However one factor to rather distinguish it from the majors in recent years has been the nature of winners and contenders. The numbers should outweigh where Woodland's game is at right now. Grillo has made all 13 cuts this season, including four Top 10s and eight Top 30 finishes.

He goes in as 8/1 favourite this week and it is hard to look past him as the likeliest victor given his love affair with the venue.

John Peterson has never won on the PGA Tour, but finds himself leading the Wells Fargo Championship after the first round. He ranks sixth in SG: Off-The-Tee and 23rd in Ball Striking. So every credit to him. The idea was to make ordinary weeks better instead of worse. Tiger's high finishes this season were at courses where hitting driver was not a necessity. This could be the way to build in cash games. Committing to several events through sponsor exemptions, Niemann qualified for this week's event through his debut Top10 finish.
