After a much-needed week off from fantasy golf, we’re back for the Wells Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC. The WFC is a stacked field event, which includes Sir Eldrick Tont Woods, who will likely garner high ownership in DraftKings contests. Pivoting off of Tiger onto other players in our Top 30 rankings may just be the way to go to win some money this weekend!
Below is a breakdown of Taylor’s (@Sgrignoli3) rankings formula, course stats for Quail Hollow, and this week’s PAS Power Rankings.
Rankings model breakdown
The “Course Stats Rank” incorporates a wide range of player statistics, each individually weighted. This range includes the past 4, 8, 12, 24, 50 and 100 rounds played.
This week’s weighted course statistics for the Wells Fargo Championship include:
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Birdie or Better Gained
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Strokes Gained: Around the Green
- Greens in Regulation Gained
- Proximity: 200+ yards
“Current Form Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per tournament played this season.
“Course History Rank” is derived from the average number of Strokes Gained: Total per year played at this event/course. *Several players may not have course history so their course history weight percentage has been shifted to current form.
The “Prestige Rank” column was back-tested and has consistently shown positive results. “Prestige Rank” is derived from a combination of current Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and Vegas odds to win the week’s event.
The “PAS Power Index” is generated by calculating and combining the categories mentioned above: course stats (weighted at 45%), current form (weighted at 25%), course history (weighted at 5%) and prestige rank (weighted at 25%).
