The PGA Tour returns to Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the first time since 2019 for the Wells Fargo Championship. The 2020 tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Max Homa is the defending champion from 2019 and looks to become the first-ever back-to-back winner at Quail Hollow. Two-time champion Rory McIlroy and eight of the top-10 golfers in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings will look to stop him. Justin Thomas has never won the Wells Fargo Championship, but he won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club.
Below, we look at the fantasy golf power rankings and odds for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship, with odds and predictions here. Odds provided by BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Odds last updated Monday at 7 p.m. ET.
Fantasy golf rankings
20. Stewart Cink (+6600)
The 47-year-old is one of two two-time winners on the 2020-21 PGA Tour season. He won the Safeway Open in the fall to snap an 11-year winless drought and most recently won the RBC Heritage against a much stronger field following an impressive T-12 showing at the Masters.
He has averaged 1.47 strokes gained on the field per round over 38 career rounds at Quail Hollow.
19. Tommy Fleetwood (+5500)
The Englishman is struggling with the driver this season, but his short game has been adequate and he’s still gaining strokes on approach to the green.
18. Jason Day (+4500)
The winner of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship enters off a missed cut at the Masters. The familiar venue should improve his putting, and he’s still averaging 0.61 SG: Off-the-Tee for the season.
17. Brian Harman (+4500)
His 2017 Wells Fargo Championship title was at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina, but he’s a strong fit for this venue, as well. He’s averaging 0.65 SG: Tee-to-Green per round for the 2020-21 season.
16. Abraham Ancer (+4000)
Finished alone in fifth at last week’s Valspar Championship and his odds rose this week against a stronger field. His putter ran hot last week, but he also averaged 0.91 SG: Off-the-Tee per round and will need to replicate that at the lengthy Quail Hollow.
15. Corey Conners (+3300)
The Canadian has made the cut in six straight strokeplay events and had four top 10s in that stretch before a T-21 finish last week. He’s averaging 0.84 SG: Approach this season, and he was second among those to make the cut with 1.54 SG: Approach at the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship.
14. Sungjae Im (+4000)
Tied for 31st in his debut at Quail Hollow in 2019 with 0.77 SG: Around-the-Green per round. His short game is struggling this season, but he has been excellent off the tee and with his irons.
13. Max Homa (+4000)
The 2019 champion did so while leading the field with 2.47 SG: Putting per round. He earned his second PGA Tour win earlier this year and is coming off a T-6 at the Valspar, but he’ll face a much stronger field this week than he did two years ago.
12. Will Zalatoris (+3000)
Ranked 28th in the Official World Golf Ranking, the runner-up at the Masters is in this field on a sponsor’s exemption. He still needs a win to qualify for this season’s FedExCup Playoffs and remains highly motivated.
11. Joaquin Niemann (+3300)
His T-8 finish last week was his third top-10 showing through nine events this year, and he hasn’t missed a cut since The Northern Trust in August. His 1.38 SG: Tee-to-Green will play well here.
10. Webb Simpson (+2200)
Has never won this event but was a co-runner-up in 2015 and has averaged 1.43 strokes gained per round over 38 rounds at Quail Hollow. He’s first on Tour in scrambling this season and his short game is very strong.
9. Viktor Hovland (+2000)
Made a valiant charge up the leaderboard Sunday with a round of 65 and finished eighth among those who made the cut with 1.23 SG: Approach per round at the Valspar Championship.
8. Rory McIlroy (+1800)
Won this event by four strokes in 2010 and by a record seven in 2015. His 2.76 strokes gained per round at Quail Hollow lead this field.
7. Patrick Reed (+3000)
The 13th-ranked player in the Golfweek rankings comes off a missed cut at the Valspar. He was undone by putting with 1.00 strokes lost per round on the greens, but he averaged 1.01 SG: Tee-to-Green over two rounds.
6. Xander Schauffele (+1800)
Hasn’t played competitively since a disappointing T-3 finish at the Masters. Has poor course history at Quail Hollow, but should be a much better fit with strong irons and solid putting.
5. Tony Finau (+2800)
Fifth among PGA Tour regulars with 0.96 SG: Approach through 38 measured rounds on the season. He’s 10th on Tour and fifth in this field in Birdie or Better Percentage.
4. Patrick Cantlay (+2500)
Missed the cut at both the RBC Heritage and the Masters, but is still ninth among qualified golfers with 1.57 SG: Tee-to-Green per round. Makes his debut at the Wells Fargo Championship; tied for 33rd at the 2017 PGA Championship.
3. Justin Thomas (+1000)
Has an average of 2.28 strokes gained on the field over 14 career rounds at Quail Hollow, including his major victory. He tied for 21st in this event in 2018 and leads the Tour in SG: Approach this season.
2. Bryson DeChambeau (+1400)
The only two-time winner this season other than Cink and leads qualified golfers with 1.21 SG: Off-the-Tee per round. He has just 10 rounds played at Quail Hollow to date and his recently-added distance will play well at the 7,521-yard venue.
1. Jon Rahm (+1000)
Rahm is the Tour leader with 2.28 total strokes gained on the field per round through 35 measured rounds and top-ranked golfer in the Golfweek rankings. He hasn’t played since a T-5 finish at the Masters and enters well-rested.
