Wells Fargo Championship: First Look
The PGA Tour heads to Charlotte, NC for the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. This is also the last chance for anyone to qualify for next week’s PLAYERS Championship. If someone in the field this week has not already qualified to play TPC Sawgrass next week, their only chance to get into the field is to win this event. That should certainly add another layer of intensity to what is already going to be a spectacular tournament.
Quail Hollow has been a regular stop on the PGA Tour almost since its inception in 1962. The trio of closing holes, collectively known as “The Green Mile” is a daunting test and is widely considered to be the toughest closing stretch on Tour. You know what that means, right? The likelihood that this baby will be wrapped up early is slim. Combine that with the fact that a number of events have already gone to a playoff so far this year, and there’s a possibility this one won’t be over until Wednesday.
Rickie Fowler was able to secure his first career victory at this tournament last year by defeating Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points after the group’s first playoff hole. All three golfers will be in the field this week as 10 of the top 25 golfers in the world will compete in a warm-up for Sawgrass. Phil Mickelson has been getting some love this week despite the fact that he has never won on this track. Bubba Watson is looking to turn things around heading into the “unofficial fifth major” next week.
Quail Hollow always seems to put on an incredible event and I have no doubt the golf is going to match the quality of the venue. This is going to be a fun one to watch.
