Golf Betting Tips – Wells Fargo Golf Championship

Event Start Time: 04/05/17 11:50

Golf betting tips for the Wells Fargo Golf Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina. As the USPGA Championship is held at Quail Hollow in California this year, the Wells Fargo has moved to a new venue and with limited knowledge of this course, a little guess work will be needed to help determine this week’s golf tips.

The course measures to a healthy 7,473 yards and this Par 72 course may play to the strengths of the big hitters, especially when taking into account that the course is playing even longer due to the recent deluge of rain.

The course itself looks top class, with large undulating fairways and resembles Augusta with fairways rising and falling. This could also really suit the decent ball strikers, as I think there will be plenty of uphill as well as downhill lies to play the approach shots from.

The greens are reported as fast and true, so again players with some Augusta form may have an advantage here. Water is in play for about half the holes. The forecast is for the course to possibly dry out through the week, with the wing being a real factor as it is due to be blustery.

Last week’s top golf betting tip Alexander Levy landed the odds at 20/1 E/W odds when he won the play off in the China Open and hopefully we can go close again.

Apart form Dustin Johnson it’s not the strongest field we have seen, but it still has a few players to catch the eye. Johnson would be a solid pick if it wasn’t for his inactivity as he recovers from falling down the stairs, which kept him out of the Masters. Possibly he didn’t get a get well soon card on the eve of the Masters from Sergio Garcia!

Wells Fargo Golf betting tips

Daniel Berger 33/1 E/W Paddy Power (7 places)

The first golf tip, Daniel Berger, didn’t quite make a run at the Masters, after having a rather sluggish start. But I still think this course may suit Berger, as he definitely has a liking for Augusta and should hold him in good stead this week. This long course should also suit, he can be deadly with the putter and is currently 15th on the stats so far this season in making birdies. He missed the cut last week but it was a team event, so I’m not really taking that form into the equation this week.

Webb Simpson 30/1 E/W Sky Bet (6 Places)

Simpson is not one of my favourite golfers to back as I think he’s got progressively flaky under pressure, but this week he’s the second golf tip as he’s a nearby resident and is member of this course. He’s going to feel really comfortable here, and whilst the majority of the field may have not seen the course before, Simpson should know where to place the ball and know the lines on the greens. He’s in pretty good form, and he should have every chance to contend.

William McGirt 40/1 E/W Paddy Power (7 Places)

McGirt played some really decent golf on his debut at the Masters and also in the next event at Harbour Town, where he came third. He’s not a player to go really low and needs a course to play tough as he likes to plot his way round and hopefully, if he can put four steady rounds together, he will be there at the end. He also plays the wind very well and he showed at the Masters that whilst others were struggling with conditions that his plodding patient game is a match for most.
