Weekly Golf Preview – Wells Fargo Championship | Volvo China Open

See below as we run through the tournament for you including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson and 32Red’s Jack Milner.


  • Quail Hollow Club, North Carolina
  • First staged in 2003
  • Current champion is Jason Day

OVERVIEW: Despite only being founded in 2003, the Wells Fargo Championship has become a hugely respected event, due to it’s ability to pull in very good fields and also that it is staged at Quail Hollow – often regarded as one of the best in America. Quail Hollow is renowned for the ‘Green Mile’ its last three holes, one of the toughest closing stretches in world golf.

Jason Day is the defending champion and starts as one of the favourites. Rory McIlroy is at the top of the betting, and he has a liking for this event having won twice – his win in 2015 saw him claim victory on a figure of -21 which meant his margin of success was a record seven shots. Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Tony Finau also feature in what is a top line-up.


The pro’s point of view…

Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.

Quail Hollow is a wonderful track, and it is no surprise how many big guns love playing there. I think the two favourites Rory McIlroy and returning champion Jason Day are very hard to look passed here, they both enjoy the challenge, away from those two and I would consider Phil Mickelson to go well.

The China Open is a decent event but having Haotong Li is key, and I would not be looking much passed him here, although I think Alexander Levy is a good bet – he likes this event and he won last time at Genzon too.
