Rory McIlroy clears the air over US Open and Open Championship comments

His comeback is compelling from a sporting perspective but Tiger Woods' resurgence is like gold dust for golf's PGA Tour His comeback is compelling from a sporting perspective but Tiger Woods' resurgence is like gold dust for golf's PGA Tour

He made clear on more than one occasion he wants to win the Wells Fargo Championship, or the two tournaments he has left. Woods is playing in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Country Club. That course, while similarly long and just as pure, does not play like Quail Hollow, however.

"Now, I think after everything that's happened over the past 50 years and the improvements that Augusta makes year on year, I feel like the amount of time between the last major of the season, the first major of the season, the hype, the eyeballs, the everything, I think it's just a slight - it's just a notch above the other ones".

A final round 77 for Kevin Kisner and his playing partner Scott Brown saw them fall down the leaderboard at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans but a T15 continues Kisner's good form, following a T7 finish at the RBC Heritage, T28 at the Masters and runner-up finish at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. "I couldn't be more happy with the outcome".

Fowler picked up his first win on the PGA Tour at Quail Hollow, defeating Rory McIlroy in a playoff in 2012.

Here's everything you need to know about one of the year's best non-Major, non-WGC tour events.

Justin Thomas, back at the scene of his 2017 US PGA Championship win, struggled to a two-over 73. Jason Day, Louis Oosthuizen and Hideki Matsuyama also finished in the Top 10 here a year ago. Rory Mcilroy, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Thomas headline a star-studded field. He's grinding and, just as I predicted in my preview, is frustrated with the greens, their grain and speed.

First among this week's picks is a player I've long had in mind for this. He's played in 13 Wells Fargo Championships at Quail Hollow, meaning Phil finishes in the top-10 in just over 2 out of every 3 visits. Cameron Champ was among 21 players who made it through both qualifiers previous year. Experience should also signal that Day could be on the verge of delivering his best performance ever at this event. "My back wasn't very good".

Boylesports go 40/1 and will pay seven places so he is a no-brainer for the each-way list, while Webb Simpson should likewise be considered at 50s with Ladbrokes.

In the video, the fan Sean Powell can be seen signalling Thomas over at the end of his round at Quail Hollow.

Sean O'Hair [150.0] is another with good course numbers.

The Northern Irishman, who was in contention at Augusta National before fading badly, carded a three-under-par 68 on his return to action.

At the prices he has to be worth looking at, although this big-time event deserves a big-name victor. "If I did hit a green, I hit it above the hole, I hit it in the wrong spot". At this price, Hadley is a ideal option to compliment your type priced studs, as I could easily see him sneaking into the top 10 this week since he's in form and comfortable on this track.

Woods smiled, interrupted and said, "One time".

"They are on the slower side".

They might have to soak up early pressure but can strike on the break to put things to bed.
