Let's hope for a little more action this week, New Orleans was boring as batsh1t. Quail Hollow usually delivers, ripping track. It's had some changes since the prolific Derek Ernst saluted last year.

Was not expecting to see Simpson at 50s Shocked. Home course, lives a mile away and will already be familiar with the changes.

Has there ever been a worse defending champion than Derek Ernst quite how he won this last year will probably remain a mystery for ever.

Frank Lickliter II turned in a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-33=63 at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C., in today's open qualifier for the Wells Fargo Championship, good for co-runner-up honors and a berth into the tournament proper.
FL2 has been attempting to four-spot for years now. He converted an eagle-3 and five birdies in the slugfest today.

The other three qualifiers will be making their first appearance in a PGA TOUR event.
The trio is led by medalist Dustin Bray, who circled eight birdies en route to a bogey-free, 8-under 31-31=62. The 32-year-old journeyman played collegiately at the University of North Carolina and has 71 starts on the Web.com Tour to his credit, albeit without a victory.

Hunter Green posted a bogey-free, 7-under 32-31=63 with seven birdies at the OQ. Despite his colorful name, the former charge at Middle Tennessee State has yet to see action in PGA TOUR-sanctioned competition.

The final spot at Quail Hollow went to James Sacheck at 6-under 30-34=64 (8 birdies, 2 bogeys). The TCU product outlasted Fielding Brewbaker and Jay McLuen in a playoff. Sacheck is conditionally exempt on the Web.com Tour, but has yet to make a start this season. The field at the WFC is now complete at 156.

As I have completed my bets at a fairly early stage I may as well go up early with my preview of this weeks Wells Fargo Championship. It was feared that it may lose some of its status as a top venue and event after the poor conditions of the greens last year but they have all been ripped up and replaced with bermuda grass. I guess the question is will the change in greens make a difference to the type of player who wins? I will take a chance and stick with the young guns who have performed well here in recent years.
Anthony Kim 2008 was 22 former Walker Cup player - 1st PGA win
Sean O'Hair 2009 was 26 - 3rd PGA win
Rory McIlroy 2010 was 21 former Walker Cup player - 1st PGA win
Rickie Fowler 2012 was 23 former Walker & Palmer Cup player - 1st PGA win
Derek Ernst 2013 was 22 former Palmer Cup player - 1st PGA win
Even last years shock 1000/1 Monday qualifier winner fitted the mould so I have gone for three young players - two of whom are still tour virgins and one who has already won but has strong local ties.
Danny Lee seems to have been around for ages but is still only 23 and could well be inspired by "fellow Korean" Nohs win last week. He was a top amateur becoming the youngest ever winner of the US amateur when just 18 and 1 month and was number one in the world until he turned pro. He has a low scoring average around Quail Hollow if you ignore the 2nd round in 2012 which led to him being disqualified for an incorrect scorecard. He has won on the Web.com tour but is still seeking his first PGA win although he came close when 2nd in Puerto Rico last month - 0.3 ew 150/1 6 places
The man that pipped Lee in Puerto Rico was Chesson Hadley who we were on and this week he has a home game in North Carolina. He is only 26 and was a Palmer Cup player like Ernst and Fowler in fact he played alongside the latter. He won his first Web.com event in his home state and won again just three months later. We obviously have a smaller gap since his first PGA win but I am convinced he has a big future ahead of him. 0.3 ew 80/1
I think a lot of people will write off Ben Martin after last weekends exploits in New Orleans but I for one was glad he struggled a bit as it was this week I wanted to back him after his 3rd at Harbour Town. We have to remember he will be learning all the time and it took him a while to win on the Web.com tour but then did it twice in 6 weeks - so he definitely holds his form well. He is still only 26 and was a top Amateur - losing in the final of the 2009 US Amateur. This is a fairly local game - being a South Carolinan but he has strong ties with Quail Hollow as his coach Charles Frost is based there and he has played quite a bit there this year so he will know the new greens more than most. He did play here in 2011 the week after he had shot 76/77 in New Orleans and opened with a 77 but he shot a very encouraging 68 in round 2. If he can take the positives from the last two events then he stands a good chance this week 0.3 ew 125/1

Heaps of rain mate. The south is being battered. Long course with no run, need length. Soft greens suit high ball flight. Sounds like Rory to me, he likes the joint too I'm pretty sure Excited

Best bet this week Jamie Donaldson 50/1 ew. Recent form includes a 2nd in the World Golf Championships-Cadillac and T14 in the Masters. Form considerably better than the majority ahead of him in the betting.

Retief Goosen 125/1 ew. Surely must secure a high place finish soon.He seems to be in contention nearly every week.

Sure does Silly

I've picked a team of four for the week - Phil (great record here) and three guys who have a reputation for playing their best on tough courses - Cabrera, Chappell and M. Thompson, all each way.

Cabrera was second (albeit in Argentina I think) last start, so he has some form. With the other two I'm just hopeful I've caught them on a good week - they only have two or three of their last sixteen rounds in the 60s, so they're not setting the world on fire. Hence the odds I guess Tongue Out

Late bet
A few quick words about this weeks late Wells Fargo bet - Will Wilcox - if you believe in bio-rhythms then he has to be a bet! This is his weekend - 2010 Won 2011 lost play-off 2013 Won. In good form and over the last three months he tops the total driving and ball striking stats on tour - something that will fit well here. I have backed him on Betfair to win £45k - he is out early and often gets off to good starts.

Team Anomaly are off to a rare fast start, with Angel and Phil in the top-2 Cool

M. Thompson isn't out of it yet, while Chappell would need something special to get himself in the mix.

€30.80 @ 55 on Zach to start things off for me. Was in a quandary as to whether I would nominate him or Jimmy Walker on my competition team. Went for Walker. Zach putting well yesterday. Think we may see a lot of Rory over the next few days and Justin might just give it a run. Phil lead a charmed life with a few yesterday. Hard to keep that type of game going for 4 days.Best of luck to everybody. Philosophy this week is I am going for a profit on my book and not worried about backing the winner. Sometimes trying for a winner uses up needless cash that can be better used trading.
