There may be a draw bias in the first two days of the Wells Fargo Championship and Rory McIlroy fans may be disappointed to see their man get early and late tee times.

Thursday should be a good day, with maybe the later starters getting slightly better and warmer conditions, but Friday could be a different story. Heavy rain in the afternoon is expected, so it may be advantageous to do the second round in the morning before the downpour begins.

McIlroy, Tony Finau, Tyrrell Hatton, Corey Conners, Abraham Ancer and Matthew Fitzpatrick are among those who could play the second round in unrelenting rain.

Kevin Streelman, one of the course record holders at the site this week, is on the seemingly favorable side of the draw, and the 43-year-old stable player can be backed on his first round at 5:32 p.m. Kingdom and Ireland). three balls against Peter Malnati and Vincent Whaley.

Streelman, seventh in the Valspar Championship at the end of March, shot a 62 in the second round of the 2018 Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac. His stroke average on the track this week is 69.38.
