2023 Wells Fargo Championship Golf Betting Lines & Predictions (May 4-7, 2023)

With the PGA Championship coming in two weeks, most of the top players on the PGA Tour will come out for one final tune-up at the Wells Fargo Championship. Quail Hollow hosted the PGA in 2017 (won by Justin Thomas) and last year’s Presidents Cup. So it’s one of the more prestigious regular stops on Tour. And it’s being recognized this year with “designated” event status. Specifically, that means a $20 million purse with $3.6 million to the Golf Betting Lines winner.

2023 Wells Fargo Championship Overview

Rory McIlroy won the event in 2021 and is playing for the first time since a disappointing missed cut at the Masters. He was scheduled to play at the boosted RBC Heritage the week after Augusta. However, he withdrew. As a result of missing a second designated event, he cost himself millions.

The top two online betting players in the Official World Golf Ranking, Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler are taking their one opt-out here. But the rest of the top 10 that are healthy and eligible are competing. Including two-time Wells Fargo champion Max Homa.

2023 Wells Fargo Championship Top Contenders

Following a week south of the border, the PGA Tour heads to Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship. Last season, the Wells Fargo was held at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm due to the 2022 Presidents Cup being staged at Quail Hollow later in the year. Max Homa claimed the title in 2022. While Rory McIlroy bested LIV Golf’s Abraham Ancer in 2021. Specifically, that was the last time it was played in Charlotte.

Late on, Homa most recently missed the cut at the Zurich Classic alongside Collin Morikawa. In turn, Morikawa is playing in the Wells Fargo for the first time. While McIlroy hasn’t played a Tour event since the Masters. Additionally, he received some backlash after skipping the RBC Heritage.

Meanwhile, Jordan Spieth is making his first start in Charlotte since 2013. Also, Rickie Fowler, whose first Tour win came at Quail Hollow 11 years ago, is playing in the tournament.

Justin Thomas, who won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club, announced the latest big-name commitment. Additionally, Thomas was part of the United States squad that won the 2022 Presidents Cup at the famed course.

In turn, Thomas gives the Wells Fargo Championship six of the world’s top 10 golfers and 11 of the top 25 committed so far:

  • No. 2: Rory McIlroy
  • No. 4: Patrick Cantlay
  • No. 5: Max Homa
  • No. 7: Xander Schauffele
  • No. 8: Will Zalatoris
  • No. 10: Justin Thomas

In sum, players like Thomas, three-time champion Rory McIlroy, and two-time event winner Max Homa have helped build a connection with the course and community.
