Wells Fargo Championship 2024 Betting Preview And Picks

The Wells Fargo Championship 2024 tournament will feature a limited field of 69 players, but not world No. 1, Scottie Scheffler with the birth of his first child soon. I preview the Signature Event golf tournament in Charlotte in my PGA Tour coverage in Forbes. A limited field of 69 players and no cut event with the top players shooting for a top prize of $3.6 million from a $20 million prize pool.

The 7,558-yard Par 71 Quail Hollow Club hosts the tournament for the fifth time since 2016, and it was also the host course for the 2022 Presidents Cup. Wyndham Clark (-19) won here in 2023 by four shots over Xander Schauffele. Rory McIlroy (-10) won at Quail Hollow in 2021 and is a three-time winner of the event along with a runner-up here in 2012 in a playoff to winner Rickie Fowler. Max Homa (-15) won by three shots in 2019 for his first PGA Tour win, and Jason Day (-12) captured the 2018 event. Justin Thomas won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow.
