*-denotes playoff win

Overview:

Last year’s playoff at the Wells Fargo Championship was one of the most exciting finishes of the year. Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlory, and D.A. Points were all tied at the end of 72 holes, but Fowler won the event with a birdie in the playoff on hole 18. All three golfers will be returning to Quail Hollow this week, so expect them to all be popular fantasy picks.

Also, tour regulars like Webb Simpson, Bill Haas, and Bubba Watson will be making the trip and have been known to have some solid rounds in North Carolina. Consider all three golfers top-tier selections this week.

To help you draft this week, here are the top 20 fantasy golfers to draft in the 2013 Wells Fargo Championship.
