This week’s stop on the PGA Tour, the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club, the location of the 2017 PGA Championship and 2022 Presidents Cup, is loaded. Ten of the top 15 players in the world — including four of the top five — will tee it up at the biggest post-Masters and pre-PGA Championship tournament on the PGA Tour slate.
On Thursday, it was Phil Mickelson who took a two-shot lead with a 7-under 64 heading into Friday’s Round 2.
The featured groups for the first two days are packed. Justin Thomas (who won that 2017 PGA here) will tee it up with Viktor Hovland and Patrick Cantlay. Major champs Rory McIlroy, Patrick Reed and Stewart Cink will play together. So will Jon Rahm, Webb Simpson and 2019 champion at this event, Max Homa.
The golf should be as tremendous as the field. This course has produced some memorable tournaments and great winners over the years. McIlroy set a pair of course records here, once beating Mickelson and once beating Simpson. Tiger Woods won here. Rickie Fowler (who is also in the field this week) defeated McIlroy here for his first PGA Tour win. Anthony Kim (!!) beat Ben Curtis back in 2008.
Regardless of who wins this week, the golf should be tremendous at a course that has not seen PGA Tour action in 24 months (last year’s event was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic). With a great field at a great course, it’s a fantastic week to watch a little PGA Tour golf. Here’s how you can follow all week at Quail Hollow Club.
