It's game week 5 of Fantasy Golf as Quail Hollow hosts the Wells Fargo Championship where seven of the world's top 12 are in action.

Rory McIlroy defends his Wells Fargo Championship this week at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Northern-Irishman won the title last year by seven shots for his second Wells Fargo Championship.

He first won the tournament five years ago when he shot a final round 62 (10-under-par) for his maiden PGA Tour victory.

It will be the World Number three’s first appearance since The Masters where he ended T10th.

The field includes the likes of Rickie Fowler, Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Patrick Reed.

World Number five Rickie Fowler, like McIlroy, also won his first PGA Tour event at the Wells Fargo Championship when he beat McIlroy and D.A. Points in a play-off in 2012.

On the European Tour this week it’s the Trophee Hassan II where Richie Ramsey looks to defend the title he won last year.

GM Fantasy Tipster’s picks for fantasy golf week 5:

USA 1: Rickie Fowler – Won here in 2012 and is having a good season that includes a win in Abu Dhabi and a runner-up finish at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

USA 2: Patrick Reed – The Texan almost won his home open two weeks ago but came up one shy thanks to Charley Hoffman’s clutch birdie on the 72nd hole.

GB: Justin Rose – The World Number 10 finished 5th here two years ago and, despite a poor week at TPC Louisiana where he missed the cut, finished T10th at Augusta last month so his game can’t be too far away.

Ireland: Rory McIlroy – The overwhelming favourite this week, McIlroy could set up an exciting summer of golf with his third victory at Quail Hollow. Interestingly, it is the only venue on tour where he’s won multiple times.

Scandinavia: Henrik Stenson – The big Swede hasn’t played since The Masters so has had the best part of four weeks to work on his game. He finished T3rd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational mid-March and then 2nd at the Houston Open the week after.

Rest of Europe: Alexander Levy – The Frenchman goes into the Trophee Hassan II as favourite after a strong spell on the European Tour. He could have won at Valderrama three weeks ago and again at the Shenzhen International the week after.

Asia: Byeong-Hun An – The South Korean lost in a play-off at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans last week but a T2nd finish was still his best PGA Tour result to date.

Africa: Retief Goosen – The Goose was seven-under through 14 holes of his opening round at TPC Louisiana last week so there’s signs his game may be on its way back.

Australasia: Adam Scott – The Aussie leads the FedEx Cup points list after his wins at the Honda Classic and WGC-Cadillac earlier this season. He makes his first start this week since a disappointing Masters.

South America: Emiliano Grillo – The Argentine won the Open in his first start as a PGA Tour card holder earlier in the season.
