The PGA Tour heads off to Charlotte North Carolina this week and pitches up at the Quail Hollow Club originally designed by George Cobb in 1961.

The course has undergone a series of improvements and redesigns, including modifications to several holes by Arnold Palmer in 1986 and a redesign by Tom Fazio in 1997. The course measures 7,442-yards, it’s very much a shot shapers course from the tee and around its tree-lined doglegs, the greens are very fast here during the tournament and a premium will be placed on that aspect of the game. 

The changes to the course for last years PGA Championship were a new type of grass called Champion Ultradwarf Bermuda grass has been installed on the greens replacing the bent grass. Thousands of trees have been removed. Lastly there has been a new designed start to the course with the old first and second holes being made into a 540-yard par 4!! A new par 3 second hole and the 11th has seen extra bunkering added. 

The four par-5s are all reachable in two and there are two drivable par-4s at the eighth and fourteenth. The 14th measures 346 yards, a 15-acre lake frames the left side of the hole and the rough on that side slopes down to the water. The narrow landing area measures about 27 yards across and is guarded by two bunkers on each side. The two-tiered green has bunkers guarding the left front and middle of the green, and a collection area waits just off the right front of the green for short approach shots hit off line. 

There should be plenty of birdies and eagles this week but don’t expect the pro’s to tear the course apart, the average winning score here is 12.5 under par.

My tips to Win:

The first time Rory McIlroy 8/1 – with SportingBet – teed it up at Quail Hollow he fell in love with this course smashing the course record in his final round and setting a new record of 62. It was the first of two wins for the Irishman here who also has a runner-up and three other Top 10 finishes over this track, to say he likes the course would be an understatement.

After winning his first major on this course last year Justin Thomas 11/1 – with Ladbrokes – will no doubt have fond memories when he arrives at Quail Hollow this week. Justin has played this course three times making the Top 10 on his first outing, missing the cut the following year and then winning the PGA Championship in September last year. Thomas has two wins already this year and I can see him making it a hat-trick here this week and its only just turned May!

Another player that enjoys teeing it up on this course is Rickie Fowler 14/1 – with Ladbrokes – who has a win here – beating Rory McIlroy in a play-off – and three other Top 10s, two of which are Top 5 places including his fifth-place finish at last year PGA Championship. This is the first time Rickie has teed it up since his runner-up finish at The Masters – his second runner-up finish of the year – and he will be looking to get his first win of the season here this week.

My each-way tips:

Phil Mickelson 28/1 – with SportingBet – has never won this event but it isn’t for the lack of attempts at trying to with a runner-up and ten Top 15 finishes, two of which were Top 10s and no less than six Top 5s. I am sure Phil is desperate to add a victory to that impressive list over the Quail Hollow course and with a win a runner-up and three other Top 6 finishes so far this wraparound season, his golf game is in great shape to finally take that final step here this week.

This will be the first tournament that Alex Noren 50/1 – with Coral – has teed it up since his disappointing show at The Masters and I am sure he really believed he had a chance of doing well at Augusta this year considering he had been playing so well with runner-up and two other Top 5 finishes so far this year. Noren didn’t play well here at last years PGA Championship but I am sure he will be looking to get back to challenging this week and I think these are great odds for the Swede.

My outside tip:

I am not surprised to see Francesco Molinari 80/1 – with Paddypower – this far down the betting odds, he has decided to play full time on the PGA Tour this year and hasn’t really pulled up any trees with only two Top 20 finishes from his nine starts this year. But I have sneaky feeling he really enjoys this course, the first time he played here in 2016 he made the Top 20 and maybe it didn’t really register but then last year he took the runner-up spot at the PGA Championship which was held over the Quail Hollow course and I think he will fancy his chances this week.

Longer odds:

Try Nick Watney 200/1 – with 888Sport


As always good luck
