Harrington cracked the top-10 here in back-to-back appearances between 2010-11. Unfortunately, he has missed the cut in three straight trips to Quail Hollow. Luckily, I think that streak will end and the veteran will be playing golf this Sunday.

Matsuyama has become a reliable fantasy options over the past few seasons, but he has never fared well at Quail Hollow. He recorded a T20 in 2015 and a T38 in 2014. I wouldn’t bet on him even cracking the top-25 on Sunday.

No one has had success here like Mickelson. He has cracked the top-11 in eight of the last nine years at Quail Hollow, including a T4 here last spring. He may not have ever won this event, but he can certainly post another top-five.

After dominating last year’s event, McIlroy will naturally be a popular pick to repeat this year. He also has five top-10 finishes in 10 worldwide events. However, he hasn’t participated in an event in over a month and will be somewhat rusty.

Most people will be betting on Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson to win it all this weekend. However, this course always keeps scores low. My money is on a dark horse to finish on top.
