McIlroy Returns Seeking Third Win at Quail Hollow

Two-time FedExCup champion McIlroy is back in action this week for the first time since the Masters. McIlroy has an excellent track record at Quail Hollow, winning the Wells Fargo Championship twice in his career – he’s the tournament’s only two-time winner.

McIlroy set the course record in each win, shooting a final-round 62 in 2010 and a third-round 61 in 2015. The Northern Irishman has finished outside the top 10 just twice in nine starts and in 2018 he placed T-8.

Overall, 13 of the top 20 golfers in the FedExCup will be in attendance this week. This year’s Wells Fargo will be the last one at Quail Hollow until 2023, as the course will host the 2022 Presidents Cup. Next year’s Wells Fargo will be played at TPC Potomac.

Can Homa Go Back To Back?

No golfer has ever successfully defended his title at the Wells Fargo Championship, but Max Homa will be looking to buck that trend this time around. Homa is +4000 in 2021 Wells Fargo Championship odds.

Homa captured his first PGA Tour win at the 2019 Wells Fargo, shooting a 4-under 57 in Sunday’s final round to edge runner-up Joel Dahmen by three shots. Homa began the final round as one of the three co-leaders but trailed Dahmen through six holes.

After going -3 in a five-hole span, Homa held a four-shot lead before a weather delay with only five holes remaining. After the weather delay was completed, Homa hit a five-foot par saver and was well in control after that. 

Justin Rose finished third in 2019, with Jason Dufner and Rickie Fowler rounding out the top five.


Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Wells Fargo Championship is no different.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.

Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.

Live Betting

Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the team you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the Wells Fargo Championship, you can bet on another team as the days go by and have another stake in the game.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
