Quail Hollow is a magnificent, long, classical course that’s been long overdue a major championship for a number of years.
The three trends I like to at are players in-form, course specialists & major players, based on the last 10 weeks (form), 10 years (course) & 10 majors.
Formstar: Paul Casey @ 40/1
Paul Casey has been in great form lately, benefiting from only playing 4 times in the last 10 weeks. He has finished in the top 15 the last 3 outings & the top 5 twice.
Courstar: Phil Mickelson @ 66/1
Phil Mickelson enjoys playing here at Quail Hollow, finishing in the top 5 six times (last 10 years). He also hasn’t been out of the top 15 here since 2012.
Majorstar: Xander Schauffele @ 100/1
Xander Schauffele has only featured in one major before which will stay in his memory forever has he finished tied-fifth. It was the US Open, played only 2 months ago. He will be full of confidence going into this.
