2019 Wells Fargo Championship Sleeper Picks

Wells Fargo Sleeper PicksAfter a break from daily fantasy golf because of last week’s Zurich Classic we get to once again look at finding sleeper picks for the Wells Fargo Championship to help win some money playing fantasy golf.

The Wells Fargo is played at the Quail Hollow Country Club and is a long course measuring 7,554 yards and only a Par 71. This is a week to look at the bombers on the PGA Tour when picking sleepers since we know all the names of the favorites this week.

If you are looking at course history remember that this event wasn’t played at Quail Hollow in 2018 while it was renovated for the PGA Championship so look at how guys played in that major and then look at previous years for course history but keep in mind that the course is different from those past Wells Fargo Tournaments.

This should be a pretty solid field of golfers getting in their games before taking next week off before the PGA Championship. If you are looking for sleeper picks for the Wells Fargo you will get to have some decent names on that list given how top heavy this tournament is with favorites.

Wells Fargo Championship Golf Course

Quail Hollow Club par 71 - 7,554 yards

As mentioned before, Quail Hollow was lengthened and made into a Par 71. There are only three Par 5’s and although they are a bit long some are reachable in two and offer a great chance for golfers to birdie and/or eagle the hole. Look at guys with solid Par 5 stats but keep in mind that 8 of the 11 par fours stretch over 450 yards so par 4 scoring stats are important too. In addition to the length of the holes above 3 of the 4 par threes are over 200 yards so you will be looking at the bombers and strong ball strikers to excel at the Wells Fargo. Guys are going to use driver first on most holes so driving accuracy stats are important as are fairways hit. The rough isn’t as punishing at Quail Hollow but if guys are going to drive the green in two being in the fairway will help.

Strokes gained on approach from 150-175 will be a key stat to check out when looking for Wells Fargo Sleepers. The majority of the second shots at Quail Hollow will fall in that yardage range so you want to focus on guys that are consistently good from there with their irons.

We mentioned above about Par 4 scoring but one stat that can be applied this week is the Par 4 Efficiency especially from 450-500 yards. The Par 4’s are long at Quail Hollow and you want guys that aren’t just going to grip it and rip it but actually can string together a few shots from over 450 yards and get a birdie try on the par 4’s (at least make sure they get par).

Both the fairways and greens are Bermuda grass which is typical for a Carolina course. The fairways are all tree-lined with lots of dog legs for guys to draw and fade through. Overall this is a ball striker’s course so keep an eye out for the bargain sleeper picks that fit the bill.

2019 Wells Fargo Fantasy Golf Sleeper Picks

Trey Mullinax - Mulliniax played well two weeks ago at the RBC Heritage and then carried his two man team at the Zurich Classic. He is a low cost at DFS sites this week and he is riding a hot hand right now so he's worth a sleeper pick for the Wells Fargo this week.

JT Poston - Poston is 1-1 at the Wells Fargo in his career with a T24 and a MC last year although he had a solid second round. He's coming off two good finishes at the RBC and the Zurich and has made most of his cuts this PGA Tour season. A low to mid round salary cap pick Poston should make the cut and score you a few more points for the weekend.
