Rory McIlroy betting favorite to win Wells Fargo Championship at 6-1

By

The PGA Tour returns to Charlotte, N.C. and Quail Hollow this week with the Wells Fargo Championship.

Jason Day is back in the Queen City to defend his title. Meanwhile, Tiger Woods opted to skip the event. He played in it last year and finished T55.

Rory McIlroy is the pre-tournament betting favorite at 6-1, according to odds posted Monday at Golfodds.com and the Westgate Las Vegas sports book. McIlroy last played in the Masters, where he finished a disappointing T21. He is in a featured Round 1 pairing Thursday afternoon with Tony Finau and Sergio Garcia.

A two-time Wells Fargo winner, McIlroy boasts a solid record on the Quail Hollow track. He shot an 11-under 61 during the third round at Charlotte four years ago, breaking his own course record. McIlroy’s 21-under 267 in 2015 also gave him a seven-shot victory, another tournament record.

Rickie Fowler and Day are the second betting option at 10-1.
