2023 Wells Fargo Championship rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy has won this tournament three times. He loves the venue. He might have something to prove with the debacle around Harbour Town.

2. Tony Finau: Finau picked up his sixth-career win over the weekend in Mexico. He made it look easy. He should thrive at this venue.

3. Max Homa: Homa is a two-time winner of this event, albeit at two different venues. He has been a little down of late, but Quail Hollow should perk him up a bit.

4. Xander Schauffele: Schauffele is having one of those years where he probably should have a trophy but doesn't yet. He's been a strong player.

5. Cameron Young: Young has been wonderful since teaming up with Paul Tesori as his caddie. He dominated this venue in the Presidents Cup.

6. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay has been playing tremendous golf lately, and he probably could be higher on this list, but I don't particularly like him at this venue.

7. Keith Mitchell: Mitchell should be a great play this week. He's been strong all year, and this is a venue that should suit him.

8. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa has been tremendous all year, but he just hasn't figured out how to get another trophy in his hands. His game plays everywhere.

9. Viktor Hovland: Hovland has played somewhat sparingly through March and April, and that might make him fresher later in the year. I think he'll do well this week.

10. Justin Thomas: Last time we saw JT, he missed the cut at the Masters and followed that up with a T-25 at Harbour Town. He's n a bit of a funk, but he should break out of it soon.
