Had a good look at this today fancy these players so far :

Rory, Watney , Simpson , DA , Fowler , Matt Jones , Cabrera - think Simpson may be a bigger bet then the rest

Colsaerts could be a wild card selection

Managed to get the 40s on Bill Haas early on, which leapt out to me. He's been playing well lately at courses, which he has a bad record at such as Bay hill & Hilton Head but hasn't put four rounds together, so coming back to a course that suits him, is a home game for him & he has played well on in the past, he looks very good to me this week.

In addition I've taken Glover, Stanley, Booo & Points.  The first 3 all have the obvious big hitting, ball striking credentials which seems to be rewarded on this course, along, with good current form & in Glover's case great course form. Points obviously was in the mix here last year & is also riding a wave at the moment. With all 4 available between 50-100-1 they all seem fairly priced to me.

Finally I've had a small dabble on SY Noh & Kokrak. In Noh's case I'm hoping that the form book from this event in past years of high quality 'young guns' coming of age here can repeat itself and at 200-1 e/w for top 6 on a course he played well at last year I'm hoping he can ignite his season.

Whilst a win for Kokrak would be a massive ask he has shown enough over the past year that he has the quality to get in the mix and as a Charlotte resident he might just be inspired to a 'Merrick' type week on a course which should again suit his big hitting.

Good luck all Cool

I've backed a handful for this (Cabrera, Walker, Stadler and Rollins) but particularly interested in Russell Henley at 100/1 or better. Ticks a lot of boxes for this course (driving distance, average putting distance) and already has eight Top-25 finishes in just 13 career events played.

Mickelson has a great record here, amazing he has never won. With no Tiger or any of the top 10 players aside from Rory, I make him a strong second fave and Rory in woeful form. No way can he be bigger than Westwood. That will surely correct itself, get on now while he's at 20s.

I have also put £7 on Colt Knost. His driving accuracy is pretty good at 30th and he is 6th in GIR putting over 35 ft, then
32nd in putts between 25-30 ft

Apply this to Rob Bolton's analysis of the course:
Fairways are among the hardest to hit among all courses on the PGA TOUR -- Quail Hollow ranked third-lowest in driving accuracy (47.59 percent) for the third straight year in 2012 -- and the proximity-to-the-hole measurement is always among the longest. After four consecutive years as No. 1 on TOUR, it ranked third in 2012 at exactly 40 feet.

Sean O'Hair interests me here. A win in 2009, and a top 20 last time.

I know he's not been in the greatest of form, but showed some glimpses last week with four sub par rounds. Easy to do last week, I know, but still..

On @ 200/1 E/W, and 240s on here.

I think the time of the season has come come where Rory McIlroy is the man to back....large!! I was always of the opinion that there was too much pressure being put on him to get it right for the masters. From the moment he missed the cut in Abu Dhabi, the vultures were out. 'Will he get used to the new clubs for the masters....will he find his form for the masters....will he still be no. 1 for the masters....will he play more tournaments to get it right for the masters??' The masters is over, he is not still number 1, time to move on. And where better to set his season back on track, than where he got his debut pga win? A venue where he also finished runner up last year. He wasnt bad at Augusta, just this years problem of consistency caught him out on Saturday. Nowhere near that pressure this weekend, i expect we will see a different Rory McIlroy. Took the tens e.w at Ladbrokes yesterday, but 9s e.w still looks a cracking bet.
Will have a couple of smaller than normal investments on a few others, basically because i really think Rory deserves the bulk of the stake money this wk. Going with, Garrigus, Pod and Blixt for those wagers, having thought long and hard about including Phil, whose course form is very solid. Might still add him

Traded Henley, backed Guthrie at 100, Camillo at 280, a little of Kokrak at 330s and Stenson at 55. In great form Henrik and a worthy punt at the price.

Unfortuneatly he now looks to be marking time until the senior tour. Many will disagree. But he still commands big appearance money and still getting those endorsments. Marketable is probably the word.

Are you kidding ????

Do you seriously think that Phil Mickleson is just marking time until he's fifty ?

That's an eight year wait.

He's still one of the most gifted golfers on the planet.

I've read some garbage on here, but that takes the biscuit.

The Wells Fargo Championship is now in its tenth year so we have plenty of
evicence to draw from and one thing is clear - with the exception of Joey
Sindelar winners have been top quality golfer who have had success or go
onto success in Major Championships - in particular the US Open. This makes
a lot of sense because it is a tough test of golf despite the winning score
averaging around -13. The last few years has also seen the domination of the
younger pro's - Fowler was 23, Rory 21, O'Hair 26 and Kim 22. I have
therefore gone for a Major player and a young pro who will probably go onto
great things.
It is time to play up some of the Angel Cabrera Masters winnings on the
likeable Argentinian. It is a well documented fact he still hasn't won a
normal PGA tour event but just has the US Open and Masters victories to his
name. This is just the sort of course where he could break that duck and
indeed he was 3rd here in 2010. The week after the Masters he flew home and
played in a big event in his home country scorching through the field on the
final day with a 64 and eagling the last to win. Since then he has had a
week off to recharge the batteries but as I said at the Masters he has been
playing well all season. To my mind he is being totally under rated this
week so will press things up - 1 pt ew 55/1
My only other bet is 24 year old Russell Henley who plays the course for the
first time in tournament conditions but has a close link to Quail Hollow.
After turning pro for the 2012 Web.com season where he had won as an amateur
this week in 2011 his game deserted him. He then paired up with a new coach
who is head pro at Quail Hollow and together with Webb Simpson they played
the course time and time again ironing out his problems. Once the problems
were solved he went on a run that saw him finish 1st, 3rd, 1st and 6th in
the last four starts of 2012, gain his tour card and then win the opening
event of the season in Hawaii. That first win on the lower tour came in
North Carolina on a not disimilar course and he bounced back to form last
time when 6th in South Carolina. He even made the cuts on both his starts in
US Opens when a top amateur. He ticks an awful lot of boxes this week and is
worth a decent bet 0.5 ew 100/1

Luke Guthrie had a few poor tournaments after he was probably knocked for six after a nervy final round when having every chance of winning the Honda. Returned to form last weekend here's hoping this is his week.

Traded De Jonge, Stenson, Camillo, Kokrak and Guthrie (the last at a worse price), added Kohles and Byrd. Surprised no one has mentioned Byrd yet with all his course form, gotta break out after the injury at some point and he's got 4 tournaments under his belt now, worth a stab at 180s at a venue he loves.

I am having a sizeable wager on Nicolas Colsaerts this week, each way 6 places with Pads. Its remarkable how much his best performances have come as April turns into May over the last few years.

He has had a few events to acclimatise on the US Tour and looked to be running into form with a 67 to finish T8th in the Zurich Classic. This tournament has been won in the recent past by bombers (Fowler, Mcllroy, Woods & Kim) and I reckon Nicolas can go close.

Winner, Top 5 & top 10.
