The Wells Fargo Championship returns to the PGA Tour schedule and welcomes an exceptionally strong field to Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The 2020 tournament was canceled amid the COVID-19 pandemic, so Max Homa (+3300) returns as the defending champion. He’s trying to be the first back-to-back winner of the Wells Fargo Championship. He’ll be contended by seven of the top-10 golfers in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings.
Quail Hollow is among the PGA Tour’s most famous stops. It measures 7,521 yards and plays to a par of 71. Below, we look at the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship odds and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.

Rory McIlroy (+1800)
We haven’t seen McIlroy since a missed cut at the Masters in mid-April. He enters the week at No. 15 in the Official World Golf Ranking and is without a win since winning four times in 2019.
He won this event for the first time in 2010 and did so again by seven strokes in 2015 at a record of 21-under par. His 2.76 strokes gained on the field per round over 38 career rounds played at Quail Hollow top this week’s contingent.
The Northern Irishman is in bad form with missed cuts at the Masters and the Players Championship in his last three events, but his three international top-10 finishes this year can inspire some hope.
The 18-1 payout in the strong field is weighing his recent form a little too heavily against his elite course history, including a T-8 finish in 2019.
