The PGA Tour heads to Charlotte, North Carolina, for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship hosted by Quail Hollow Club.

This is another designated event on the PGA Tour calendar with a stacked field, as 21 of the top 30 players in the Official World Golf Ranking will tee it up in Charlotte this week.

After the betting favorites opened at +300 or shorter the last two weeks at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans (Xander Schauffele & Patrick Cantlay) and the Mexico Open at Vidanta (Jon Rahm), Rory McIlroy opens as the betting favorite this week at +800 odds at bet365.

McIlroy has proven himself to be one of the top performers at Quail Hollow after winning here the last time it hosted the Wells Fargo Championship in 2021. He also has two other wins at Quail Hollow Club with a 2015 Wells Fargo Championship win and a 2010 Quail Hollow Championship victory.

Patrick Cantlay opens with the second-shortest odds this week at +1200 at bet365. While Cantlay doesn't have a win on Tour this season, he has finished 26th or better in 10 of his 11 starts and has five top-10 finishes in his last seven tournaments. Cantlay has only played at Quail Hollow twice in stroke play events on Tour, with a T33 at the 2017 PGA Championship and a missed cut at the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship.

While Rahm was the betting favorite last week in Mexico, Tony Finau out-dueled him to win at -24 and secured his sixth PGA Tour win. Over his last 13 starts on Tour, Finau has finished no worse than a tie for 31st, as he has played consistently solid golf, including another win in the fall swing at the Cadence Bank Houston Open. Finau has picked up four of his six PGA Tour victories in the last calendar year.

Xander Schauffele opened with 16-1 odds on Monday morning as he enters with momentum. The San Diego State product has recorded four straight top-10 finishes and is looking for his first win since the 2022 Genesis Scottish Open.

Max Homa is the fifth and final player with odds of 20-1 or shorter as he opened at +2000 at bet365. Homa is looking to defend his win at last year's Wells Fargo Championship, although that tournament was held at TPC Potomac as Quail Hollow Club prepared to host the 2022 Presidents Cup.

Homa has continued to emerge as an elite golfer on Tour since then, but his first victory on Tour came here at Quail Hollow in 2019 at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Course Preview

Quail Hollow Club is a 7,438-yard par-71 designed by George Cobb in 1959 with fast Bermuda greens. Tom Fazio helped renovate the course several times in 1997, 2003 and 2016, as the course was lengthened to keep up with modern technology so that it can continue its rich history of hosting the Wells Fargo Championship while holding other marquee events like Presidents Cups and PGA Championships (Quail Hollow Club will host the PGA Championship again in 2025).

Distance off the tee and approach play from 175+ yards will be key this week, as nine of  the 11 par-4s play at 449 yards or more. All four of the par-3s have scorecard yardages of at least 184 yards as well. 

Past Winners

McIlroy, Homa, Jason Day, Brian Harman, James Hahn and J.B. Holmes, the past champions of the Wells Fargo Championship over the last 10 years, are all in the field for this week's tournament.

Justin Thomas also has a victory at Quail Hollow Club, winning his first major championship at the 2017 PGA Championship here in Charlotte.
