This week, the PGA Tour presents fantasy golf fans with the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship. A quality field of talent, including defending champion Max Homa, will compete to win this week’s event. Let’s take a look at this tournament from a fantasy golf perspective!
Before I discuss my fantasy golf player selections I wanted to emphasize that the purpose of this article is not to provide an exact lineup for a specific fantasy provider.
Having stated that, this article will provide multiple player options in an effort to assist the reader in generating a unique lineup that will hopefully have the potential to win a GPP (guaranteed prize pool) contest!
Now let’s shift our attention to my fantasy golf selections!
