I hope everyone enjoyed the week off from PGA DFS but it’s time to get back to it. The team event is always fun and it’s a nice break from the traditional PGA grind but we get right back into the thick of things this week with the Wells Fargo Championship. The players will be welcomed back with a very difficult challenge at Quail Hollow. We have a strong field this week as players look to prep for the approaching PGA Championship. Lets take a closer look at the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship.
Quail Hollow Club is the host this week and has been since 2003 (except in 2017 when it was prepping to host the PGA Championship). Located in Charlotte, NC, Quail Hollow is a difficult Par 71 that will play about 7,550 yards this week. The average cut here is +2 while the average winning score is 13 under Par. Last year Quail Hollow was the 5th toughest (out of 51) course on the PGA schedule.
The fairways at Quail Hollow are tree lined and difficult to hit. Only roughly about 50% of tee shots will find the short grass. The fairways and rough are Bermuda grass over-seeded with Rye. Along with the trees there are 2 water hazards that come in to play on a total of 6 holes. There are also bunkers guarding every green. The greens are average size but are fast and firm. They will run at about a 12.5 on the stimpmeter. Quail Hollow is a great test to get players ready for Bethpage Black in a few weeks.
