Matsuyama to break Quail Hollow duck


The PGA Tour stops off at Quail Hollow this week for the Wells Fargo Championship and the consistent Hideki Matsuyama looks primed to land his first victory at the North Carolina venue.

Hideki Matsuyama – Outright Winner @ 20/1

Although failing to taste success since the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Matsuyama has been a model of consistency on the PGA Tour and he hasn’t missed a cut in nine months – with the 147th Open Championship the last time he failed to make the weekend.

The world number 28 hasn’t been seen since finishing tied-32nd at the Masters – a slightly disappointing result based on his record at Augusta National – but that break will have helped to recharge the batteries.

Japan’s number one is currently second in strokes gained: off-the-tee, behind only 11/2 tournament favourite Rory McIlroy in this category, while he is also second in strokes gained: approach-the-green category.

Matsuyama is also 5-for-5 at Quail Hollow, with a T5 in the 2017 PGA Championship among three top 20s, and he looks good value to land his maiden Wells Fargo Championship.

Lucas Glover – Top-10 Finish @ 59/20

One player that has certainly rediscovered his mojo this season is Glover. The 39-year-old has a superb 11 top-20s to his name already this season and these results have helped him back to 84th in the world, a remarkable rise having been down at 162nd at one stage last year.

Since his rookie season of 2004, the American has featured in every edition of the tournament and he managed to land the 2011 title when beating compatriot Jonathan Byrd in a play-off.

Glover, who is 40/1 to lift the trophy for the second time, is 11th in greens in regulation and scoring average this season and he looks ready for another solid performance.

Rory Sabbatini – Top-20 Finish @ 3/1

Sabbatini, who switched his allegiances from South Africa to Slovakia in 2019, has shown some decent form so far this year and a T10 at the RBC Heritage last time out was further evidence he is heading in the right direction.

The 43-year-old also looked in decent form when finishing tied-18th at the Valspar Championship earlier this season and a return to a course he has impressed at in previous years could help him even further.

Sabbatini has only missed the cut once at Quail Hollow, where he’s netted three top 10s, and he seems worth a punt at 3/1 to record a third top-20 of the campaign.
