The PGA TOUR heads over to the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C.


Each week we'll take a look at the best round matchups to try and build up a nice bankroll.

Phil Mickelson (+120) vs. Tony Finau (-150): Finau is a masher, and that's a nice trait at Quail Hollow. However, no one knows this course better than Lefty. While Mickelson has never won at this event, he has played at Quail Hollow on 14 previous occasions dating back to 2005 when it was the Wachovia Championship and he finished seventh in his debut at the event. He has finished 18th or better in 12 of his 14 appearances in Charlotte, and he is fifth or better in seven of his past 12 stops at Quail Hollow, including fifth place last season.

Phil Mickelson (-140) vs. Sergio Garcia (+110): As stated above, there aren't many golfers who have the knowledge of Quail Hollow like FIGJAM. In fact, in this field, only Lucas Glover has as many appearances (14) at this event. He might be getting a little long in the tooth, but his vast knowledge of this course will pay big dividends.

Gary Woodland (-130) vs. Paul Casey (+100): Woodland missed the cut at this event last season, but he has had a measure of success at Quail Hollow in the past. That includes a fourth-place showing in 2015, and he is 24th or better in three of his past four starts at the Charlotte event.

Lucas Glover (-110) vs. Patrick Reed (-120): Glover has made 14 previous appearances at this event, including victories in 2011, and a runner-up finish in 2009. Reed has been up and down, finishing 47th or worse in four of his past five, including two missed cuts. He isn't hitting on all cylinders, making Glover the play here.

Last event (RBC Heritage): 0-3 (-335)
This season: 11-14-2 (-410)


Top 20 Finish - Phil Mickelson (+100): Again, Lefty has a vast knowledge of this course, and he has been 18th or better in 12 of his 14 previous appearances at Quail Hollow.

Top 20 Finish - Lucas Glover (+177): Glover has a win and a runner-up at Quail Hollow in the past, but he has four top-20 finishes, so he is anything but a slam dunk, thus the longer odds.

Top 20 Finish - Kyle Stanley (+425): Stanley has six previous appearances at Quail Hollow, including a sixth-place showing in 2013. He was also 13th last season in Charlotte. At this price level he is worth a roll of the dice.

Last week: 0-3 (-530)
This season: 12-18 (-438)
