The Wells Fargo Championship PGA golf tournament is taking place from May 14-17, 2015, at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. Here is a list of the odds for PGA golfers to win the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship.
In a great bit of irony, Rickie Fowler who just won the 2015 Players Championship is not playing here this week. The irony is that prior to winning The Players Championship the only other victory Rickie Fowler ever had on the PGA Tour was at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012.
Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are also not playing here this week, but golf’s arguably biggest star in 2015 is. Not only is Rory McIlroy playing here this week, he’s a heavy favorite to win the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship. Phil Mickelson is also teeing it up this week so the tournament has plenty of pizzazz in 2015.
I’ve listed all the players with odds of 100 to 1 or less with comments and then a few notables who have won this tournaments before. Good luck to all the bettors this week!
PGA golf betting odds for players to win the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship
1. Rory McIlroy – 4 to 1
For a golf tournament, 4 to 1 odds are pretty low but that’s the odds for Rory McIlroy to win the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship. Rory McIlroy won the Wells Fargo Championship in 2010, and he’s already won the Dubai Desert Classic and the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship this year.
2. Jim Furyk – 18 to 1
Jim Furyk won the Wells Fargo Championship in 2006, and he won the 2015 RBC Heritage about a month ago.
3. Henrik Stenson – 20 to 1
Henrik Stenson has four wins on the PGA Tour but none since 2013. Stenson also has eight win on the European Tour with his last win coming six months ago. Stenson finished tied for 17th last week at The Players Championship.
T-4. Phil Mickelson – 25 to 1
Phil Mickelson missed the cut last week so you know he’s out to play well this week but can he win? I’d still like to know why he withdrew from the Match Play Championship two weeks ago suddenly. Is he OK physically?
T-4. Hideki Matsuyama – 25 to 1
Seeking his second PGA Tour win. Matsuyama finished tied for 17th last week so he’s playing decently.
T-6. Adam Scott – 28 to 1
Scott was playing well last week at six under through three rounds but then shot a 75 on Sunday to finish tied for 38th.
T-6. Bill Haas – 28 to 1
If Bill Haas didn’t miss a few really short putts last week he could have won for sure. Instead he finished in a fourth place tie. Hass has six wins on the PGA Tour including the 2015 Humana Challenge.
T-6. J.B. Holmes – 28 to 1
Won the Shell Houston Open in early April. Finished in 51st place last week but is the defending champion at the Wells Fargo Championship.
9. Patrick Reed – 33 to 1
He’s a threat here. Reed has won four times on the tour over the last 20 months including the 2015 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Finished tied for 24th last week.
10. Kevin Na – 35 to 1
Kevin Na played well at The Players Championship and finished tied for sixth but has only one win lifetime on the PGA Tour in 287 starts.
T-11. Kevin Kisner – 40 to 1
Played great but lost playoff to Rickie Fowler at Players Championship. Kisner has yet to win on PGA Tour in 92 starts but is playing best golf of his life. You’d still be broke betting him up to now.
T-11. Ryan Moore – 40 to 1
Has four wins on PGA Tour with last in November of 2014. Just missed the cut last week.
T-11. Louis Oosthuizen – 40 to 1
Lone win on PGA Tour was his British Open win in 2010. Took home $20,000 when he finished tied for 69th last week.
T-14. Ben Martin – 50 to 1
Has one PGA Tour win which came last year. Played well to tie for fourth last week which earned him $440,000.
T-14. Hunter Mahan – 50 to 1
Finished fourth in anonymous PGA Tour poll of most overrated golfers. Has six career wins and his last was The Barclays in 2014. Missed cut last week.
T-14. Justin Thomas – 50 to 1
PGA rookie looking for first win on tour. Finished tied for 24th last week.
T-14. Sean O’Hair – 50 to 1
Missed cut last week. Four PGA wins including the Wells Fargo Championship in 2009, but his last was in 2011.
T-17 – Brendon de Jonge, Charl Schwartzel, Gary Woodland, Russell Knox, Webb Simpson – 66 to 1
Knox and de Jonge have yet to win a PGA Tour event.
T-22. Charles Howell III, Brian Harman, Chesson Hadley, Daniel Berger, David Hearn, George McNeill, Morgan Hoffman, Rory Sabbatini, Pat Perez – 80 to 1
Charles Howell III has only two PGA wins but he ranks 24th on the all-time PGA Tour money list with earnings of $28.6 million.
T-31. Brendan Steele, Jason Kokrak, John Peterson, Kevin Streelman, Lucas Glover, Martin Laird – 100 to 1
Lucas Glover won the Wells Fargo Championship in 2011
- David Toms – 125 to 1
David Toms is intriguing a little bit because he played well last week to finish tied for 13th and he won this tournament in 2003. His last win was in 2011 though.
- Derek Ernst – 200 to 1
Recorded his only PGA Tour win here in 2013
- Vijay Singh – 200 to 1
Vijay won this tournament in 2005
