Check out the form of those teeing-up at Quail Hollow on Thursday, in the opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship. Stats compiled by Andy Swales ...

"Although Phil Mickelson has never won at Quail Hollow, he has stood on the podium three times, while adding four more top-five finishes."

The PGA Tour is back at Quail Hollow less than nine months after the North Carolina course hosted the final major championship of 2017.

Highly regarded by most leading pros, Quail Hollow staged last year's PGA Championship when an excellent back nine by Justin Thomas on Sunday, earned him the biggest title of his career.

Designed by George Cobb and opened 57 years ago, the course has been a frequent Tour venue for much of the past five decades, after making its top tier debut by staging the Kemper Open of 1969.

The course has undergone a series of renovations during the past 30 years, most recently at the hands of Tom Fazio, and it remains one of the most respected venues in professional golf.

Accurate driving is a priority on this tree-lined and parkland course, which is not overly reliant on water hazards to make it testing, although a number of these do exist on a handful of closing holes.

There is, however, plenty of sand to focus the attention on many of the approach shots.

Quail Hollow is around six miles south of downtown Charlotte, the largest city in North Carolina.

And, as expected on a course of this quality, a number of big guns are teeing-up in this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Star Names

Twelve of the world's top 20 are taking part, including Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy who are all former winners at this course.

Fowler and McIlroy are making their first appearances since The Masters, hoping to erase the disappointment of missing out at the season's first major.

Fowler played superbly during the final round at Augusta National but, once again, came up short, while McIlroy fell away on Sunday afternoon having started the day in second spot.

The Northern Irishman is a two-time champion at Quail Hollow where he has also been runner-up.

Man of the moment Patrick Reed, the wearer of this April's Green Jacket, is in great form thanks to five successive top-10s.

The 27-year-old from Texas tied-for-second when Quail hosted the PGA Championship last August.

Excellent Shape

Among those who are also in good form right now are Phil Mickelson, Tommy Fleetwood and Louis Oosthuizen.

Lefty has played here 14 times and, despite missing the cut at the PGA last summer, has a remarkable record over the course.

Although he has never won at Quail Hollow, he has stood on the podium three times, while adding four more top-five finishes.

The ever-improving Fleetwood rarely seems to play badly nowadays, while Oosthuizen was a joint runner-up here in 2017.

Outsiders

With so many big names teeing-up on this testing course, it's hard to see an outsider lifting the trophy on Sunday, so an each-way punt may appear more tempting.

One player who is doing well in both Driving Accuracy (DA) and Greens in Regulation (GiR) is Kyle Stanley.

He's currently top of GiR and fifth in DA and, despite missing the cut in his last two appearances at Quail Hollow, has finished sixth here in the past.

Two others who are doing well in both categories are Kevin Streelman and Brian Harman. The former has had a brace of top 10s at the course during the past five years.
