Before I dive into my Draftkings player selections for this event let’s review the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a player’s success at this week’s 2024 Wells Fargo Championship.

2024 Wells Fargo Championship Draftkings Picks

Wyndham Clark $10,500

Since the beginning of February, Wyndham Clark has played eight tournaments on the PGA Tour. In those eight events just mentioned, Clark accumulated an impressive four top three finishes, including a win at the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

In relation to this week’s 2024 Wells Fargo Championship field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Wyndham Clark ranks eighth in birdie or better percentage, sixth in strokes gained putting, third in GIR (greens in regulation), and eighth in strokes gained tee to green.

Wyndham Clark also checks the box for me when it comes to previous/event history. Clark won the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship.

Matt Fitzpatrick $8,700

The 2022 U.S. Open winner has accumulated two top ten finishes in his last four events played on the PGA Tour, including a fifth-place result at the 2024 Players Championship in March.

Fitzpatrick finished second at the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship.

Adam Scott $7,700

The talented Australian has accumulated two top 22 finishes in his last three tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a 14th place result at the 2024 Valero Texas Open last month.

In my opinion, Adam Scott presents the best fantasy value of any player on the slate at the low Draftkings price of $7,700.

Sepp Straka $7,300

Sepp Straka arrives at this week’s tournament on the heels of two consecutive top 16 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a fifth-place result at the 2024 RBC Heritage three weeks ago.

In relation to this week’s 2024 Wells Fargo Championship field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Sepp Straka ranks first in GIR (greens in regulation), second in driving accuracy, 13th in bogey avoidance, and first in strokes gained on par fours.

Additional golfers I like to play well (Draftkings price noted): Rory McIlroy $11,800: Ludvig Aberg $10,300: Justin Thomas $8,500: Rickie Fowler $6,900: Jake Knapp $6,500.
