Woods returns from post-Masters break to play Quail Hollow

Woods returns from post-Masters break to play Quail Hollowā€¯

Woods was runner-up by one shot at the Valspar Championship.

After a week off for DFS purposes, the PGA Tour is back in full force as the Well Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Golf Club comes around. He's a two-time victor at this track, 2015 and 2010, with four additional top-10 finishes in eight attempts.

Without a doubt, the Wells Fargo features one of the best non-major, non-WGC fields of the season.

"I'm kind of free-wheeling it at this point", he said. I had defensive putts for most of the days.

Niemann said he met Woods once at a junior tournament at Sage Valley Golf Club in SC. "I'm not the type that just because I won one major means I'm done". I would not be surprised if DraftKings already has something up their sleeve for next year's Zurich Classic.

Justin Thomas ($11,300): When you look at the three players that cost 11K+, all three of them (Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Rickie Fowler) have won at Quail Hollow. He had a tight match against eventual victor Bubba Watson until losing on the 17th hole. Playing in his first PGA event since the 2018 Masters, Tiger Woods is going off at 25-1.

Now 27, Ernst is currently 93rd on the Web.com Tour's money list, but as a recent champ of the event, he's teeing it up again at Quail Hollow this week.

"I'm never going to settle", Reed said.

While bombers will be very important this week, scrambling will also play a big role over the weekend.

Justin Thomas, back at the scene of his 2017 US PGA Championship win, struggled to a 2-over 73. The Wells Fargo Championship was held at Eagle Point previous year so Quail Hollow could prepare for the PGA Championship. The last player to do that was Jack Nicklaus. He did that twice: Pebble Beach in 2000 and Torrey Pines in 2008.

Romo failed for the second straight year to advance out of 18-hole local qualifying, which began Monday. 7 and 8 to get to red figures, but had two bogeys and a birdie on the back nine.

Better than previous year? He tied for 32nd at Erin Hills.

A number of the world's best players are in the field this week-15 of the top 25 in the Official World Golf Ranking-but it's the world's 93rd-ranked player who is responsible for the undeniable buzz on the ground at Quail Hollow Club this week. The Aussie was right in contention to win his second major, only to fluff his lines on the final two holes, as he bogeyed the 17th then carded an eight on the last. That was in 2013 at Merion.

Russell Henley and Scott Langley tied for 16th at Pebble Beach in the 2010 U.S. Open.

For good reason, the Green Mile rivals PGA National's Bear Trap and Innisbrook's Snake Pit as one of the most hard finishing stretches on the PGA Tour. He is midway through the eight tournament starts he is granted by the exemption. Still to be announced are the name of the tournament, the size of purse and tournament partners.

Jason Day and Paul Casey were among those in the group at 68.

The European Tour had four events this season in the Middle East - Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman and Qatar. In fact, he's gone 38th, 20th, 11th, and fifth in the last four years at Quail Hollow, exactly the momentum we want to see from a guy like Hideki. That being said, course history should not be weighed as heavily as it is in other tournaments.

The Wells Fargo Championship is set to get underway on Thursday morning.

"I hit the ball fine today", Woods said. He doesn't have much win equity, but he has missed the cut just once in his last 20 events.

That is also the case with the 40/1 quotes about Louis Oosthuizen, who shared second alongside Reed here last August. Because at the time, I wasn't playing well. Just inside our triple-figure price range, both Gary Woodland [100.0] and Kevin Streelman [110.0] have bags of course form.

John Peterson started his rookie season on the PGA Tour about the time Tiger Woods started to experience back problems.
