Golf One And Done pool players are about to enter a crucial stretch, with several Signature Events and Majors over the next month. This week, it’s the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in North Carolina.

The biggest name in golf is not playing, but that just means a more wide open tournament with several pick options to consider.

In addition to the Wells Fargo, this week also has another opposite field event, the first-ever Myrtle Beach Classic, just a short distance away. We have a bonus section at the bottom for the Myrtle Beach Classic if your OAD pool uses that event.

Let’s go through what to think about in making your One And Done picks for the Wells Fargo Championship.

Last Week’s One And Done Pick Results

  • Taylor Pendrith got his first PGA Tour win at the Byron Nelson, when Ben Kohles bogeyed the 18th hole, allowing Pendrith to win outright with a birdie.
  • Neither Pendrith nor Kohles were likely to be picked in most One And Done pools.
  • The top scoring popular OAD pick was Alex Noren, who was in our top five of recommendations.
  • However, most of the other recommendations faltered, as Jordan Spieth failed to make the cut as the pre-tournament favorite, and Jason Day, last year’s champ, finished in a tie for 59th.
  • Si Woo Kim, another of our top recommendations, was typically the most popular pick for the week and finished tied for 13th.

Here are some notable highlights for the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship field:

  • No. 1 ranked Scottie Scheffler is sitting out this event, with his wife still expecting to deliver a baby very soon, though he hopes to play at next week’s PGA Championship.
  • With Scheffler out, we will have our first “non-Scheffler” winner at a Signature Event or Major since Hideki Matsuyama won at the Genesis all the way back in mid-February.
  • Rory McIlroy, who recently won the team event at the Zurich Classic, is now the betting market favorite, ahead of a field that includes pretty much all the top ranked golfers not on the LIV Tour (besides Scheffler).
  • McIlroy has won here three times (last in 2021) while Max Homa is a two-time champion in the field, with wins in 2022 and 2020.
  • Wyndham Clark (2023), Jason Day (2018), Brian Harman (2017), Rickie Fowler (2012), and Lucas Glover (2011) are other past champions in this week’s field.
