5 players to watch at the Wells Fargo Championship

Watch the Wells Fargo Championship throughout the week on Sky Sports Golf. Dechambeau almost won the Arnold Palmer Invitational and lost by a single stroke at the RBC Heritage his last time out.

Tiger Woods will also be returning to action for the first time since the Masters. At the PGA, however, the cut was all the way up to +5, thanks in part to shaving a par 5 off the scorecard and changing par to 71.

Phil Mickelson: A consistent performer in this tournament, Mickelson has had seven top 5s and four other starts of 12 or better in 13 starts here at Wells Fargo.

"We learned a lot about Quail Hollow and that it's a better golf course when it's over-seeded and the rough is shorter than it is with Bermuda and deep, nasty rough", Wagner said.

All stats are from Fantasy National Golf Club (FNGC) and are for golfers in the field over the last 50 rounds.

Webb Simpson - Webb Simpson is another guy who is hitting the ball well now, as he has top-25 finishes in four of his last six events and is coming off a fifth place finish at the RBC Heritage. All of the Par 5's are reachable in two and two of the Par 4's are actually drivable for the bombers. In that span, he is first in driving distance and 9th in proximity on approach. The only thing missing in this event is a win - and he got that winning feeling back two months ago in Mexico...

McIlroy is at 3-under par through 13 holes, overcoming a bogey on the 18th hole (his ninth).

Niemann missed the cut at the Masters, but picked up what he said was valuable advice from playing partner and ageless-wonder Fred Couples, 58, who won at Augusta in 1992. Rory Mcilroy, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Thomas headline a star-studded field.

Dating back to 2007, Mickelson's results at Quail Hollow include a string of 10 straight cuts made, six top-5 results, and only two finishes outside the top 15.

Thomas won the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, the only golfer to claim victory here after a few holes were redesigned in 2016. He also took his chances when he had them on the greens with a solid strokes-gained putting statistic of 1.551.

Woods, a 79-times PGA Tour victor who needs three more wins to match Sam Snead's all-time record, used a new set of irons but it was the flatstick that caused his problems.

Quail Hollow is a super-long track; indeed, it's one of the longest on the Tour at a shade under 7,600 yards for its Par 72.

He finished third here in his second appearance in 2006 but has only one other top-10 since and will need to improve on the form he's shown so far this season if he is to be a factor.

Fleetwood ranks third in strokes gained: off the tee and forth in strokes gained: tee to green for the 2018 season.

He was joint-second to Thomas at the US PGA previous year, and is playing better than ever now.

Tony Finau - Tony Finau is in quite a zone at the moment, as he's put together top-25 finishes in each of his last for events and is coming off a sixth place finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

However, too much has been made of the last 20 minutes, and too little of the 70 that went before it, as Jurgen Klopp's men destroyed a very decent side with constant pressing and unbelievable pace.
