NCG form expert Barry Plummer breaks down the field and picks out three players who have a great chance at Quail Hollow this week
Following on from a tough week at the Valspar Championship, I am back in the saddle and ready to get back on the winning trail. This week we head to the famous Quail Hollow Golf and Country Club for the Wells Fargo Championship, host of the PGA Championship in 2017 and site of that famous Rory McIlroy win in 2015.

Wells Fargo Championship details
Venue: Quail Hollow Golf and Country Club, North Carolina
Date: May 6-9, 2021
Course stats: Par 71; 7,554 yards
Course summary: This long, difficult parkland course is a real test for players, with the winning score only exceeding 15-under-par once in the last 10 years. Mature trees line the fairways, leading to undulating Bermudagrass greens that are fast and protected by numerous bunkers. The closing three-hole stretch, named the ‘Green Mile’, will certainly be in the leaders consideration come Sunday as it threatens to dash their dreams of a victory here.
Purse: $8.1 million
Defending champion: Max Homa (-15)
