2022 Wells Fargo Championship preview
The Wells Fargo Championship is this week, and the tour comes back to my hometown, with TPC Potomac tagging in as a one-year sub for Quail Hollow while it prepares to host the Presidents Cup. This is a course that isn't difficult to play tee to green, but the putting surfaces are difficult to decipher.

2022 Wells Fargo Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks
1. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy was runner-up at the Masters in his last start, so surely that has to count for something. He's been solid all year.
2. Corey Conners: The Canadian has been playing great for the last 45 days or so, and his mediocre-at-best putting shouldn't be as big of an issue here.
3. Matt Fitzpatrick: The Englishmman surprisingly missed the cut at the Heritage, but that was after a run of three top-18s in a row. Largely been fabulous all year.
4. Tyrrell Hatton: Hatton hasn't missed a cut all year, and he's sprinkled in a whole bunch of good finishes.
5. Tony Finau: Maybe all Top 5 Tony needed to jumpstart his season was a week on a Greg Norman-designed golf course.
6. Cameron Young: This is an ideal spot for a rookie to get his first win, on a substitute course. He's been great all year and was T-3 at Heritage in his last start.
7. Max Homa: It's been a great season for Homa, notching another PGA Tour win. In 2022, Homa's missed one cut and has been in the top 17 five times.
8. Abraham Ancer: Honest Abe hasn't been playing very well in the last month or so, but the earlier portion of the year was strong.
9. Seamus Power: Power struggled on the back end of playing seven tournaments in nine weeks, but he's been decent since.
10. Paul Casey: Casey has been rather difficult to track this year given injuries, but he wouldn't be playing this week were he not feeling good to go.
