Course Breakdown

  • Quail Hollow Club
  • Charlotte, N.C.
  • Par 71
  • 7,400 Yards
  • Bermuda/Poa Fairways
  • Bermuda/Poa Greens

Quail Hollow Club is known for its demanding layout, with most par-4s measuring longer than average. The course culminates in the “Green Mile,” a stretch of three challenging closing holes that includes a 529-yard par-4, a long par-3 and a 500-yard par-4, all with significant water hazards in play. The course’s layout requires accuracy and a well-rounded game, with heavily bunkered greens and sloping fronts making approach shots and putting critical.

The weather looks favorable, with no rain and maximum winds around 10 mph. This should allow players to take full advantage of the course without major disruptions.

Our projected winning score is -21, with no cut in this event. Pars are good scores at Quail Hollow and birdies should be seized whenever possible. Previous winners like Wyndham Clark and Max Homa illustrate the need for a consistent approach game. Success at the Wells Fargo Championship requires precise driving, an effective short game and avoiding costly bogeys.

Stats to Build Around:

  • Shots Gained Approach
  • Proximity 150-175 Yards
  • Proximity 200+ Yards
  • Shots Gained Putting
  • 3-Putt Avoidance
  • Shots Gained Par-4s 450+ yards
  • Shots Gained Par-5s
  • Bogey Avoidance
  • Birdie-or-Better Rate
  • Driving Distance

PGA DFS Strategy

The ideal DFS lineup focuses on distance, accuracy and consistent putting. Despite talk of scrambling and around-the-green game, recent winners at Quail Hollow have shown that these factors play a lesser role in victory. Consistent scoring and avoiding bogeys are critical to success.
