The Wells Fargo Championship, celebrating its 11th year, is not only one of the premier golf events in the North Carolina region, but also in the world. During the past ten years, Quail Hollow Club has welcomed all of the world’s top 25 players and the tournament’s list of champions is consistently considered among golf’s elite.
This year, Rickie Fowler added his name to the list of golf’s young stars who have earned their first PGA TOUR victory at the Wells Fargo Championship. On the first extra hole in a playoff, Fowler birdied No.18 at Quail Hollow Club to defeat 2010 champion Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points. With this victory, he joined Anthony Kym and McIlroy as young players to get their first TOUR victory in Charlotte. Past champions are: 2003 David Toms, 2004 Joey Sindelar, 2005 Vijay Singh, 2006 Jim Furyk, 2007 Tiger Woods, 2008 Anthony Kim, 2009 Sean O’Hair, 2010 Rory McIlroy, 2011 Lucas Glover and 2012 Rickie Fowler.
Six of the tournament’s ten champions have earned major championship titles and three champions have held the No.1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking at some point in time. Currently, 2010 champion McIlroy is World No.1. Because of consistent overall excellence, the Wells Fargo Championship was awarded unprecedented back-to-back “Best in Class” Awards in 2009 and 2010 by the PGA TOUR.
