Purse: $8.1 million with $1,458,000 to the winner

Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas are joint favourites at 11/1 with Bryson at 14/1. Course specialist Rory is as high as 20/1 with some bookies following his recent dip.
Doc's Top 5 Best Each Way Bets
Brian Harman 45/1
Long odds from the bookies because they maybe think Brian Harman is too short for the modern Quail Hollow. You've got to be straight first and foremost from the tee here and Harman is that player. Led in fairways hit in a T13 at Hilton Head and with a T12 at Augusta and T3 at Sawgrass (plus $1.2 million banked in those three starts) Harman has proven he's dangerous on any track. Winner of the event back in 2017 albeit on a different course (Eagle Point in Wilmington) as Quail Hollow was being readied for the PGA Championship that year.
Max Homa 35/1
This event did not take place last year due to Corona restrictions so Max Homa actually returns to Quail Hollow as the defending champion from 2019. Big return to form last week at Innisbrook with a T6 finish albeit with a final round of 74.
Cameron Tringale 50/1
Plenty of course experience but no real form at Innisbrook sees Cam out at 50/1. He's posting some good finishes though with a T13 at The Honda, T9 in Texas and a big T3 at Palm Harbour last week. He's a scrapper and has a squeak at a place here.
Victor Hovland 22/1
T8 in Fairways hit and T4 in Putting on his way to a T3 finish at The Valspar and Victor is the kind of guy that can go on a run of good results now just like he did in February with four consecutives top-6 finishes (Farmers, Saudi, Genesis, WGC Workday). A debutant here but a perfect fit for this course.
Joaquin Niemann 35/1
I'll give Joaquin the nod over Tony Finau for the final spot in my five. Liked him last week in a T8 at The Valspar where he went a cumulative -1, E, -8 for the par 3's, 4's, 5's. Long enough to be able to capitalise on the par-5's here which will be vital and accurate enough with his irons to negotiate the feared Green Mile.
Long Odds Glory Shots
Brian Bo Martin is back in the USA with Shane Lowry 60/1 and that'll be a big boost to the Offaly man who went low twice at the RBC Heritage last time out.
Pat Perez posted a top 30 finish last week at The Valspar, he loves Quail Hollow and is 200/1.
Nick Taylor needs to earn a few quid fast. He's 275/1.
