Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Rory McIlory returns to winner’s circle at Quail Hollow

After an 18-month winless drought, McIlroy ($10,000; 102 DKFP) claimed the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday for his third career win at Quail Hollow and his 19th career win on the PGA Tour, to go with seven addition European Tour wins. McIlroy admitted earlier this season that his game was being negatively influenced by trying to push to keep up with the metrics of some player, but he returned to his solid tee-to-green game to claim a one-stroke victory with a three-under round on Sunday that included four birdies and just one bogey, which came on the last hole. He’ll be in good form coming into the next major championship, which is in two weeks when the PGA Championship will be held at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. — Zach Thompson

Bryson DeChambeau rallies for top-10 finish at Wells Fargo Championship

After literally flying home on Friday because he thought he had missed the cut, DeChambeau ($11,000; 74.5 DKFP) came back to Quail Hollow, climbing his way back all weekend with back-to-back rounds of three-under to surge into a tie for ninth. He finished six shots behind Rory McIlroy ($10,000; 102 DKFP), who won by one stroke over Abraham Ancer ($8,900; 96.5 DKFP). Viktor Hovland ($9,800; 90.5 DKFP) and Keith Mitchell ($7,000; 98.5 DKFP) tied for third while Luke List ($6,800; 81.5 DKFP), Patrick Reed ($9,300; 75.5 DKFP) and Matt Wallace ($7,500; 78.5 DKFP) finished tied for sixth. DeChambeau was joined in his tie for ninth by Aaron Wise ($7,100; 72.5 DKFP). Sunday’s best round was turned in by Ancer, with a bogey-free, five-under. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Keith Mitchell leads by two strokes after third round of Wells Fargo Championship

Quail Hollow is set for an exciting finish on Sunday. Mitchell ($7,000; 99.5 DKFP) shot up the leaderboards on Saturday, finishing five-under-par on the day to claim the top spot at nine-under-par for the tournament. Rory McIlroy ($10,000; 74 DKFP) and Gary Woodland ($7,500; 78 DKFP) are tied for second at seven-under-par. Luke List ($6,800; 74.5 DKFP) also jumped into contention with a solid outing, finishing the day at six-under-par in fourth place. Mitchell, despite the two-stroke lead, is not the DraftKings Sportsbook favorite at +275. That honor belongs to McIlroy, who comes in at +175. Woodland trails the two favorites closely at +500. — Jeff Pratt

Viktor Hovland moves into contention at Wells Fargo Championship

Hovland ($9,800; 60.5 DKFP) made his move on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Championship, firing a three-under 68 to move into a tie for seventh place heading into the final round. The young American was five-under through 11 holes thanks to five birdies before he gave three shots back on the back nine. He came back with a birdie on 17 to finish with a solid round, moving up 17 spots to -4. He sits five back of leader Keith Mitchell ($7,000; 99.5 DKFP). He was the most-owned golfer in the $750K Flop Shot contest at 22.6%. Not to far behind was Joaquin Niemann ($9,100; 51 DKFP) at 19.2%. He was one under on Saturday and sits in a tie for 23rd place. — Kenny Ducey


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Three golfers tied for the lead after the second round of Wells Fargo Championship

The PGA TOUR headed to Quail Hollow this week, and things are set up for an exciting weekend. There are currently 23 players within four shots of the lead, so there should be plenty of drama. The leaders are comprised of Matt Wallace ($7,500), Patrick Rodgers ($6,500) and Gary Woodland ($7,500), who are all sitting at six-under-par for the tournament. There are some big names in the mix as well, with Rory McIlroy ($10,000) at four-under-par and Phil Mickelson ($6,900) at three-under-par heading into the third round. McIlory is actually the betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook at +500, which gives him a slight edge over Wallace (+600) and Woodland (+800). — Matt LaMarca

Jon Rahm highlights notable missed cuts at Wells Fargo Championship

Rahm ($10,800) was the third-highest owned golfer at this week’s Wells Fargo Championship, but his week is ending early. He finished the first two rounds at four-over-par, which puts him two strokes on the wrong side of the cut line. This is Rahm’s first missed cut since all the way back in June 2020 at the Charles Schwab Challenge, and that event came following a nearly four-month layoff due to COVID-19. Rahm wasn’t the only big name to go down before the weekend, either. Cameron Tringale ($8,400), Will Zalatoris ($9,400), Tony Finau ($9,500) and Harold Varner III ($7,600) were other golfers who missed the cut with a top-10 ownership. — Matt LaMarca


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Phil Mickelson shoots 64 to take early lead at Wells Fargo Championship

Mickelson ($6,900; 61 DKFP) shot his best round since last June, carding a seven-under 64 on Thursday to take the lead at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte. Lefty made just one bogey, on 11, and birdied four of the last five holes to earn himself a birdie streak bonus. All told, he made eight birdies en route to taking a two-shot lead. Keegan Bradley ($8,500; 44.5 DKFP) shot a bogey-free 66 to grab a share of second after one round with Kyoung-Hoon Lee ($6,900; 43 DKFP) who birdied seven times but gave a shot back on 16. If you’re wondering, Mickelson currently has the second-best odds to win the event on DraftKings Sportsbook, sitting +1000 behind the favorite, Justin Thomas ($11,300; 20.5 DKFP). — Kenny Ducey

Will Zalatoris, Viktor Hovland up and down to start Wells Fargo Championship

Zalatoris, ($9,400; 12 DKFP) who is rostered in 21.7% of the lineups in the $750K Flop Shot, got his day started off on the right foot as he birdied hole 10. On the following hole, he gave it right back. On the back nine, Zalatoris bogeyed hole 4 then got it back three holes later. He ended the first round even at 71. Hovland ($9,800; 22 DKFP), rostered in 22.6% of the $750K Flop Shot lineups, birdied his first hole and gave it back three holes later. But, he came right back and birdied the following hole. On the back nine, it was much of the same, except in a different order. Hovland bogeyed hole 2, then birdied holes 5 and 8. DraftKings Sportsbook has Hovland at +1200 to win it all while Zalatoris is at +4500. — Stan Son
