Lefty Is Right For The Wells Fargo Championship

The fifteenth edition of the Wells Fargo Championship will be held at a new venue from Thursday as Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina, takes over hosting duties and players have been falling over themselves to praise this Augusta-esque course...

DJ Starts Favourite

Eagle Point hosts its first ever PGA Tour event as the usual venue, Quail Hollow, will be hosting the PGA Championship in August, so it will be fascinating to get a look at this Tom Fazio-designed track, which weighs in at nigh on 7,400 yards.

Dustin Johnson heads to North Carolina as a 5/1 favourite in what will be a first appearance since a freak pre-Augusta fall ended his Masters bid early. The world number one had won his three previous starts prior to the opening major of the year but you wonder if this week's comeback appearance will be more of a chance to hone his game ahead of some stellar events in the coming weeks.

Jon Rahm has also been in excellent touch during 2017, during which he has secured five top-ten finishes in the past seven starts, including three podium finishes in the USA.

Like Johnson, Rahm's price (12/1) is plenty short enough, with Adam Scott the next best at 20/1.

Lefty Is Right

We prefer to side with Phil Mickelson here though as all of the talk pre-tournament is about how Eagle Point bears similarities with Augusta, where few players can match the exceptional record of the three-time Masters champion.

Mickelson has a fine record at the Wells Fargo to enhance too as he has never missed a cut in thirteen visits, racking up eleven top-fifteen finishes, including seven top-fives.

'Lefty' has already secured six top-25 finishes during 2017, including his tie for 22nd at Augusta, and we fancy Mickelson is a great bet to end a title drought that stretches back to The Open of 2013 by getting the better of a relatively weak field in North Carolina.
Tip #1: Phil Mickelson (each way) @ 25/1 with Bet Victor.

Course Form

There is so little course form to go on this week so we will be keeping our powder relatively dry but it would be remiss of us not to back a couple of Eagle Point club members, with Webb Simpson a 40/1 shot this week.

Simpson, who was runner-up at the Wells Fargo in 2015, has long been pushing for this course to host this tournament and the 2012 US Open winner has been in decent touch this year, finishing runner-up in Phoenix earlier this term before tying for 11th at the RBC Heritage last time out.
Tip #2: Webb Simpson (each way) @ 40/1 with Betfred.

Finally, Carl Pettersson is another club member at Eagle Point, where he holds the course record of 62, and it is perhaps no coincidence that his best performance in the last few years came in North Carolina, at the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield in 2015. It bodes well that the 39-year-old hinted at a return to form with a tie for 16th at the Texas Open last time out and he is worth a small wager at a triple-figure price.
Tip #3: Carl Pettersson (each way) @ 225/1 with Bet 365.
