The PGA Tour heads to Quail Hollow Golf Club in North Carolina for the 16thannual Wells Fargo Championship. Last year, Jason Day defeated Nick Watney and Aaron Wise by two strokes to earn his 12th and most recent Tour title, and he’ll be defending his crown against one of the stronger fields at a regular Tour stop. Recent Wells Fargo Championship winners in the field include Bryan Harman and J.B. Holmes. The field also features several major championship winners: 5-time major champion Phil Mickelson, 4-time major champion Rory McIlroy, and 2-time major champ Zach Johnson, just to name a few.
Qual Hollow Golf Club :
Quail Hollow Golf Club has been the host of this amazing tournament every year except 2017, when it hosted the PGA Championship. The 494-yard par-4 18th is one of the toughest finishing holes on the PGA Tour, which often leads to tense, exciting finishes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
RORY MCILROY:Despite having a rough weekend at the Masters, Rory has consistently been a factor this season. He burst onto the golf scene with his final round 62in 2010 at this event, and he will be looking for his unprecedented 3rd Wells Fargo title this week.
PAUL CASEY: He’s finished in the top-12 in this event the last two years, and he’s having one of the best seasons ever in his long career. He has never won multiple PGA Tour events in the same season, but this week presents a great opportunity to do so.
