2021 Wells Fargo Championship Picks

After a break from the last two PGA tournaments, I am back with picks for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship. This year the Wells Fargo Championship is being played at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte North Carolina. Max Homa is the reigning champion due to last year’s tournament being cancelled due to covid-19. Now I am excited for this tournament. I am beyond invested in this tournament this year. With that being said here are my picks for the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship.



Rory McIlroy +1800

Rory McIlroy is a two time winner of this tournament. Also the second time he won the tournament back in 2015, he set a course record through all four rounds. Rory is definitely not a favorite here, but I can see him becoming the first ever three time winner at the Wells Fargo Championship. I like McIlroy’s odds here and at +1800 it seems like a solid bet to me.


Top Five: 

Corey Conners +650 

The 29 year old Canadian has caught my eye as of late. He finished top ten in the Masters and the RBC Heritage Classic. Then he had a stinky performance at the Valspar Championship. Conners has two top five finishes in the 2021 season so far. I think we will see Conners compete at the top of this tournament, but I do think he ends up finishing in the top five.


Will Zalatoris +750

Zalatoris disappointed for me at the RBC Heritage Classic. Now after time to regroup, I think Zalatoris is going to jump back into the top five of the Wells Fargo Championship. He already has two top five finishes so far during the 2021 season. I think Zalatoris will struggle at the beginning, but keep himself in the running. Then on day three he will cement himself within the top five, and will finish in the top five of the Wells Fargo Championship. Watch out because his first career win is coming; just not at Quail Hollow Club.


Top Ten: 

Rickie Fowler +650

Rickie Fowler has probably one of the worst luck when it comes to golfers at this point and time. Fowler has yet to get a top ten finish in any tournament in the 2021 season. The best Fowler has done so far is 17th place in the Valero Texas Open. I am calling my shot now, Rickie Fowler has won this tournament before and he will be finishing in the top ten at the Wells Fargo Championship this weekend.


Patrick Cantlay +250

Patrick Cantlay has put together a good 2021 season so far. He has won one tournament so far and has 4 top ten finishes as well. He has struggled as of late as he has missed the cut at the RBC Heritage Classic and the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Cantlay can easily bounce back this week though. I think we will see Cantlay putting together yet another good round together and finish in the top ten for the fifth time this season.
