McIlroy, Mickelson, Westwood, and Woods to square off at Wells Fargo
Nineteen major winners, five of the top-ten in world rankings, all will be on hand when the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship gets underway this week in Charlotte, North Carolina. The "Big 4"; Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson all are ready to rock and roll and test their skills against the PGA Tour's best in what could be the strongest field to date. Both Woods (2007) and McIlroy (2010) have won this event in the past and Mickelson twice has finished second.
The depth of skill level on the PGA Tour is at an all-time high and anyone in the field has the talent to win. Hunter Mahan is the only player that has won multiple times this year, meaning that 17 others have a win a piece so far in 2012. The talent on the PGA Tour is second to none and the young kids coming out of college are not afraid anymore and come prepared to win and seem to be un-phased by the superstars.
The tournament will likely come down to the last hole, and what a hole it is. The par-4 478-yard 18th is the last in a three-hole stretch dubbed "The Green Mile" and is consistently one of the toughest finishing holes in golf. On the tee shot, players must avoid a bunker on the right, as well as a creek that meanders along the entire left side of the narrow fairway. An uphill second shot must avoid hazards on both sides of the green, which is deep and sloped. If a player must birdie this hole to win the tournament, he will have his hands full and if a player needs a par to win, he will also have his hands full. This is one tough hole!

Woods game is robotic these days. Whatever happened to the feel player we once knew? Tiger used to step up and let it go, had a short game like a wizard, and didn't seem to care much about how his swing looked - only the results is what mattered. Now, he takes 50 practice swings before every shot and seems to be obsessed with how his swing looks and that's not to mention his putting stroke which once was the best in the game and is now like his swing…robotic. Bet AGAINST Tiger in the golf matchups.
If you are looking for a long-shot, Pettersson is your man. He won three weeks ago at the RBC Heritage and lives 30 minutes from Quail Hollow Golf Club. You will get nice value with Pettersson this week - probably close to 30/1. Take the Swede in the golf odds to win this week in Charlotte.
