Understanding the Wells Fargo Championship 2023

This will be the 20th playing of the Wells Fargo Championship, formerly known as the Quail Hollow Championship and Wachovia Championship. Since its debut in 2003, the tournament has been dominated by American players, with a local player winning 14 out of 19 times. Perhaps most notably, the Quail Hollow course features what’s known as ‘the Green Mile’ – one of the toughest 16th, 17th, and 18th hole stretches in world golf.

Last Five Winners

  • 2017 – Brian Harman beat Dustin Johnson/Pat Perez
  • 2018 – Jason Day beat Nick Watney/Aaron Wise
  • 2019 – Max Homa beat Joel Dahmen
  • 2021 – Rory McIlroy beat Abraham Ancer
  • 2022 – Max Homa beat Keegan Bradley/Matt Fitzpatrick/Cameron Young

Is this year’s Wells Fargo Championship destined to be a Rory McIlroy vs. Max Homa arm wrestle? The two have won five times between them, including the last three events, and undoubtedly both come into this tournament eager to add to their tally. Read on for our Wells Fargo Championship 2023 predictions as we seek to answer this question.

2023 Wells Fargo Golf Betting Tips

This is where the rubber hits the road – deciding which PGA Tour odds to bet on. Our experts have poured over all the data and come up with the top Wells Fargo 2023 betting picks for you to wager on this week. Here are our expert picks:

Playoff to Decide Winner @ 4.00 (3/1)

Of the 19 times that the Wells Fargo Championship has been played, seven events have been decided by a playoff. That means that well over a third of all tournaments played at the Quail Hollow Club end in playoffs, or at least once every three years. In fact, on two separate occasions, the Wells Fargo Championship has led to a playoff three years in a row, and between 2003-2016 the tournament was averaging one playoff every two years.

However, the last time a Wells Fargo Championship was decided by way of a playoff was in 2016. It’s been seven years since regular play ended in a draw. Statistically, considering the number of times this tournament has historically led to a playoff, it’s incredibly unlikely that we’ll go another year without one. The bookies are paying good money for a playoff as well, with odds of 4.00 (3/1). With a tight field full of past champions and in-form players, this is an excellent bet to make.

Wells Fargo Championship 2023 Betting Bonus

Rory McIlroy to Win @ 8.50 (15/2)

Rory McIlroy has won this tournament more than any other golfer in history. Heading into Charlotte, he’s seeking his fourth Wells Fargo Championship title, and without Jon Rahm and Scottie Scheffler in the field, McIlroy stands a good chance.

The elephant in the room is that despite McIlroy being World No.3, the Northern Irishman is not in good nick right now. In fact, in his past two events – the PLAYERS Championship and the Masters – McIlroy has failed to even make the cut. What is it that they say about class and form, though? McIlroy has a permanent class, and his poor form is only temporary. What better way to return to his winning ways than on a course where he’s lifted the trophy three times previously?

As the icing on the cake, McIlroy is yet to play poorly three events in a row this season either. After winning the CJ Cup, the 33-year-old bombed at the WM Phoenix Open and Genesis Invitational but then finished T2 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Now, having missed the cut in his last two events, the stage is set for another strong McIlroy showing.

Max Homa to Win @ 21.00 (20/1)

No golf PGA 2023 Wells Fargo betting predictions would be complete without mention of Max Homa. The 32-year-old is a fantastic high-return bet to place this year. Homa not only is the defending champion at the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship, but he won the event in 2019 as well, making it two of the past three tournaments at the Quail Hollow grounds that the American has won.

Add Homa’s past performance on these grounds to the fact that he’s in strong form overall this season, and a compelling case can be made for a third title here. Homa has picked up two titles already this season at the Fortinet Championship and Farmers Insurance Open, plus four top-10 finishes. Odds of 21.00 (20/1) are looking like a very attractive bet for Homa to win.

  • Playoff to Decide Winner @ 4.00 (3/1)
  • Rory McIlroy to Win @ 8.50 (15/2)

It’s one of golf’s trickiest courses to finish strong on, but eight different past champions will all be hoping to do just that as the Wells Fargo Championship 2023 kicks off this week. Rory McIlroy comes to North Carolina desperately looking to rekindle his form from earlier in the season, as does Max Homa. With both men having won here on several occasions, we say this tournament will deliver exactly what the fans want with a playoff finish between the two. Back McIlroy to have what it takes to lift the trophy – but only just.
