With the 2020-21 PGA Tour campaign rolling right along as we get set for the 2021 PGA Championship on May 20, it’s time to find out who’s looking good as we head into this weekend’s 2021 Wells Fargo Championship so you can bet against their Golf odds. While this event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship gets underway on Thursday at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.
This year’s field is relatively loaded with four of the world’s top five players in action and all looking to tame The Green Mile — the nickname for the course’s final three holes, which rank among the most difficult on the PGA Tour.

Five for the Win!
- Tony Finau
13th in the Official Golf World Rankings (OGWR), Tony Finau looks like a guy due for a win. In 15 events this season, the 31-year-old Utah native has made the cut 13 times while recording six Top-10 finishes and a pair of second place finishes. After missing cut in the Texas Open, Finau rebounded nicely by finishing 10th at last month’s Masters and T17 in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Finau ranks ninth in eagles per hole (86.4), 13th in birdie average (4.44) and 11th in scoring average (69.9). Finau is hungry and talented enough to get it done this weekend.
- Will Zalatoris
28th in the OGWR, gifted youngster Will Zalatoris has made the cut 15 times in 16 tournaments this season. The 24-year-old Californian has recorded a stellar six of Top-10 finishes, including at his Masters debut last month. Zalatoris finished 42nd in the RBC Heritage Classic in his last event, but could very well win the 2021 Wells Fargo title. Zalatoris ranks 22nd in greens-in-regulation (69.44%), 26th in eagles, 49th in birdies per round (4.03) and 12th in scoring average (69.9). Make no mistake about it, Zalatoris has the kind of all-around game that is well-suited for success. I see no reason why the blossoming star won’t challenge for the outright win on Sunday.
- Justin Thomas
In 13 events this season, Thomas has made the cut 12 times while recording five Top-10 finishes and a win in The Player’s Championship in March. Thomas ranks first in birdies (4.89) and first in scoring average (69.7) while ranking fifth in eagles and 22nd in G.I.R. Thomas finished a solid T13 in last week’s Valspar Championship and looks like a sure-fire pick to finish inside the Top 5.
- Xander Schauffele
In 13 events this season, the world No. 4 has made the cut 12 times with six Top-10 finishes. The 27-year-old Californian comes into this event with three consecutive Top-20 finishes, including a T11 finish in last week’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Schauffele ranks sixth in eagles, a stellar third in birdie average (4.69) and fifth in scoring average (69.8). More importantly, Schauffele is due for a win and I believe he could get it.
- Jon Rahm
In 13 events this season, Rahm has made the cut each time out while recording nine Top-10 finishes, including one second place finish. The 26-year-old Spaniard comes into this event riding the wave of a four-tournament stretch of Top-10 finishes, including a seventh place finish in last month’s Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Rahm ranks fifth in G.I.R., 23rd in birdie average (4.34) and eighth in scoring average (69.8). Another Top-0 finish looks like a certainty while a win looks very, very possible as well.
