Sahith Theegala had a disappointing missed cut in his previous start alongside Will Zalatoris at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

He’s vying to get back on track by resuming the form he left off on playing his own score. Theegala recorded his fourth career PGA Tour runner-up finish (to go with his win in 2023) in his last solo tournament, the RBC Heritage.

Theegala beat all but the red-hot Scottie Scheffler, who’s not in the field this week at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Theegala is at Quail Hollow for the second time. He debuted last year with a T-56th finish (67-74-71-73). The highlight of the week wasn’t the result, but rather his creativity to hit a tremendous lefty recovery shot. 

That kind of panache and shotmaking is what makes Theegala a talent and a fun player to watch.
The Pepperdine alum is up to four top-10s, three of which have been at Designated Events.

Theegala ranks fourth on the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Total (1.528). He’s eighth in SG: Putting (.71), 21st in SG: Off-the-Tee (.453), and 23rd in SG: Tee-to-Green (.819).

At 51st in driving distance (302.5 yards), he’s not a bomber, but he’s got enough firepower to hold up at a burly layout like Quail Hollow.

Theegala’s maiden win last fall at the Fortinet Championship was an important milestone as a pro. It was validation after he had an elite amateur career.

The next step for the Californian is getting it done away from home and friends and family. It’s getting it done against a much more skilled field than what was on hand in Napa.

Theegala is poised to get it done this week, especially with no Scheffler in the field.
