Fantasy Golf 2014: Wells Fargo Championship

April 30, 2014

fantasy golf quail hollow 2014The PGA Tour returns to Quail Hollow for this week’s Wells Fargo Championship, a popular place for some of the biggest names in the sport. Derek Ernst captured his first win on Tour at this event last year.

Don’t expect that to happen again.

Why? Because guys like Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Gary Woodland have been playing stellar golf over the last few months. Fowler had a strong showing at The Masters earlier in the month (T-5), and McIlroy is moments away from having another break-out season (if that’s even possible). Woodland can overpower any golf course on the planet (and probably other planets as well). Oh, and don’t forget about Jim Furyk; the crafty veteran who always sneaks by with a win or two during the year.

This is also a great tournament to load up on some less-common fantasy golf picks. I went with Kevin Chappell and Jamie Donaldson, for example, since both have played relatively decent this season. Quail Hollow fits the game for a wide range of players.
