The Wells Fargo Championship gets underway May 4-7, 2017. It debuted in 2003 as the Wachovia Championship and was known in 2009-10 as the Quail Hollow Championship before the current sponsor, Wells Fargo, took over in 2011.
The tournament has been held annually at Quail Hollow Golf Club but this year it moves to Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina, while Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 PGA Championship.
I am curious to see how many players make the trip to Wilmington with the PLAYERS a week away. The players loved Quail Hollow and it attracts a strong field year after year, but Wilmington isn’t the same as Charlotte, and some may decide to skip it this year and wait until it returns to Quail Hollow in 2018.
The tournament moves to Wilmington, North Carolina this year to a new city and new course. Eagle Point Golf Club. The layout was designed by Tom Fazio in 2000 and is currently among the Top 100 Golf Digest courses in America. Several TOUR players have played Eagle Point and believe it will be well received by the players.
After missing eight consecutive cuts, James Hahn stunned the field by coming out of nowhere to claim his second PGA Tour win here in 2016. Hahn played steady, posting four straight rounds under par to force a playoff with Roberto Castro. He then had the advantage of watching Castro launch his tee shot into the water, which he took full advantage of to earn the win.
Past champions Jim Furyk, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy twice, Vijay Singh, J.B. Holmes and Rickie Fowler.

Dustin Johnson played his first competitive round of golf since missing the Masters with a back injury, shooting a pain-free 2-under 70 during the opening round of the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, N.C.
Johnson hit his first 10 greens and 16 greens overall in regulation, 40 days since he last played on the PGA Tour. He enters play Friday tied for 15th, four shots back of Francesco Molinari.
The ever-steady Johnson made an early charge after teeing off from No. 10 early in the day, and was 3-under after six holes. He came in at a 3-under 33 after nine holes.
