With the odd-ball formats out of the way (hello, Dell Match Play and Zurich Classic), the PGA Tour returns to the normalcy of stroke-play this week in Charlotte (NC) for the 17th edition of the Wells Fargo Championship.
Headlining at the majestic Quail Hollow Club will be three former top-ranked champs in world No. 4 Rory McIlroy (2010, 2015), No. 10 Rickie Fowler (2012), and No. 14 Jason Day, who’ll be defending his 2018 title.
All three will be part of the Tour’s featured pairings, as will world No. 2 Justin Rose – the field’s top-ranked name. Joining the 38-year old Englishman in the marquee pairings will be seven more big names, all ranked in the OWGR’s top 30, including Paul Casey (13), Tony Finau (15), Patrick Reed (19), Webb Simpson, Phil Mickelson (23), Hideki Matsuyama (28), and Sergio Garcia (29).
Filling in as the 12th man will be Harold Varner III (No. 167), who grew up in nearby Gastonia (North Carolina).
