FANTEAM DAILY FANTASY GOLF – WELLS FARGO CHAMPIONSHIP DAY 4

DAY PLUMMETS AND KEEGAN TAKES ADVANTAGE IN THE RAIN AS WE HEAD INTO CHAMPIONSHIP SUNDAY

The weather remained an issue at TPC Potomac on day 3. Overnight leader Jason Day had a major collapse which saw him plummet down the leaderboard and leave him 7 shots behind leader Keegan Bradley.

Max Homa is Bradley’s nearest challenger after the American carded a 71 to remain 2 shot’s behind. Pre tournament favourite Rory McIlroy remains in contention, but he will have to go low on Sunday if he is to win his 4th Wells Fargo Championship.

The Wells Fargo leaderboard remains tightly packed going into round 4 with 11 players within 6 shots of Keegan Bradley, so we should be in for another exciting day of golfing action. 

FanTeam have created a Day 4 Wells Fargo Championship contest for us to enjoy. €5 buy-in with €1000 prize pool. Contests start 6th May, 11.00am BST 12.00pm CET

Day 4 satellite contests are running side by side with the regular contest and users can enter for €3 and be in with a chance of winning tickets to our PGA Championship monster contest in 3 weeks..

ROUND 3 STATS

STROKES GAINED ON APPROACH 

TPC Potomac is definitely a middle to long iron course, with Over two thirds of all approach shots coming from over 150 yards out. The small greens caused havoc for the golfers so approach has to be on point.

  1. Jhonattan Vegas
  2. Nick Taylor
  3. Matt Kuchar
  4. Adam Schenk
  5. Keegan Bradley

STROKES GAINED OFF THE TEE 

The rough is a real problem around this golf course so accuracy is key. TPC Potomac ranked 2nd out of 37 PGA Tour golf courses in average difference of score from rough locations drives vs. drives in the fairway. This confirms the importance of driving accuracy. 

  1. Keegan Bradley
  2. Max Homa
  3. Rory McIlroy 
  4. Russell Knox
  5. Cameron Young

STROKES GAINED AROUND THE GREEN

Short games certainly matter around TPC Potomac. Players missed greens frequently in round one and with this course possessing the 5th hardest bunkers on Tour the golfers  will most certainly have to be hot with their short game to compete.

  1. James Hahn
  2. C.T. Pan
  3. Nick Taylor
  4. Chad Ramey
  5. Kelly Kraft

WEATHER

Thankfully the worst of the weather is behind us. Sunday will be sunny at the Wells Fargo Championship. There are some wind gusts that could get up to 12mph around midday for an hour or 2 but it shouldn’t affect the golfers too much, as they look to go low.
