Wells Fargo PGA Tips

The cream of the PGA Tour head to Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship today and we have taken a look at who will be competing come Sunday. The Quail Hollow course is notorious for its last three holes which have wrecked many a tournament for even the best in the world. Since 2003 the field is 810-under par for the first fifteen holes. The last 3? A staggering 4,298-over par!

Webb Simpson (16/1 at Paddy Power)

There’s a lot of money going in on Webb Simpson and it is easy to see why; a local to the area he knows the course well and he strikes the ball beautifully. With the US Open to his name and a loss in the play off at Harbour Town last time out he is in cracking form. He’s performed well at his home town course for the last two years and should be in contention on Sunday afternoon.

Phil Mickelson (18/1 at Paddy Power)

Lefty adores this course and yet somehow he has never won it. He’s played here nine times and made the cut on every occasion, finishing in the top 10 six times. Another great ball striker who’s work around the greens has certainly not declined with age. Experience, a competitive streak that belies his congeniality; what’s not to like about Phil Mickelson here?

Bill Haas (28/1 at Bet365)

Last time out at Quail Hollow was something of an aberration for Haas as he missed the cut. In his 12 previous rounds here he had been under par on 10 occasions. He’s finished in the top 25 in his eight of his 11 starts this year including five top 10s. Another fantastic ball striker who is 8th in greens in regulation this season.

And now for something a bit bigger:

Matteo Mannassero (160/1 at Betfair):

The young Italian is making his debut here at Quail Hollow but don’t let that put you off. What he lacks in distance off the tee he more than makes up for in accuracy. He is a fantastic putter with a strokes gained average of 0.828 that compares favourably with the very best. With lofty odds and a good start Mannassero who turned 20 only two weeks ago could go a long way towards breaking his PGA Tour duck. Three wins on the European Tour show he is no choke artist.
