Who are the players to watch at Quail Hollow?
Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are among the stars competing in the Wells Fargo Championship just nine months after the course hosted the PGA Championship.
Tiger Woods put his clubs in closet for 10 days after disappointing Masters
CHARLOTTE ? Tiger Woods is still getting used to his new fused back and a new set of irons he put into the bag this week. He?s also been getting to know an old friend again. Playing the Wells Fargo Championship for the first time since 2012, Woods needed to put on his reconnaissance cap since arriving at Quail Hollow Club on Tuesday. While the wooded setting and much of the course looked familiar ? he won here in 2007, after all, and has played here six times ? he was on unfamiliar ground during a Tuesday practice round and Wednesday?s pro-am. Since he last played here, the course has undergone major alterations, many required ahead of last year?s PGA Championship. New routing and reshaping sprung
Two-Time Major Champion Jacklin and Former McDonald's General Counsel Yastrow...
WASHINGTON, May 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A two-time Major champion and four-time Ryder Cup captain collaborating with the former general counsel for McDonald's on a courtroom suspense novel? Sounds unlikely, but it's real. The result is Bad Lies, released online and in bookstores May 1. Bad Lies follows Eddie Bennison, a successful pro golfer on the Senior Champions Tour. At the peak of his success, Bennison is accused by a major golf magazine of doping. His world is shattered. The damage to his reputation is irreparable, so he files a highly-publicized lawsuit accusing the magazine and its affiliated companies of libel. Now it's a battle between Bennison's lawyer and the battery of high-priced
The Forecaddie: Work begins around Augusta National?s fifth hole
Several Augusta residents driving down Berckmans Road have reported a massive construction effort underway on the western border of Augusta National Golf Club. Based on photos and plans dug up by the Augusta Chronicle, the landscaping effort appears to be phase one for preparing to extend the club?s fifth tee. The Forecaddie knows this is hardly shocking news given a January reveal of plans filed to work on a 23-acre area. Given that the club is still open for member play through the end of May, the initial outer landscaping effort is an inevitable precursor to lengthening the 455-yard fifth hole once play ends for the season. Permits called for ? are you ready ? 119 trees to be planted to shield
2018 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Regionals teams selected
Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and LSU earned top seeds when the NCAA men?s golf committee announced on Wednesday the 81 teams and 45 individuals to play in the six NCAA Men's Regional tournaments May 14-16. The Cowboys
Dabo pranks Dan Mullen with exploding golf ball
At last year's Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf event, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was the victim of the old exploding golf ball prank. This time, it was Swinney who did the pranking. When new Florida coach Dan Mullen lined up for his tee shot, he had a suspicion that the golf balls had been switched but thought little of it. Then, this happened: Mullen was confused at first, but he was a good sport about it all. And for good measure, this was the prank last year: At least they let him take a mulligan.
Column: Justin Thomas trying to make his bad golf better
The question Justin Thomas faced seven months ago was how to follow a season that featured five PGA Tour victories, his first major championship, the FedEx Cup and all the awards that go along with the best year in golf. Quail Hollow presents one of those challenges. Thomas played nine holes Tuesday with Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau and Dru Love. It was the first time he set foot on Quail Hollow since the PGA Championship, when he holed a 15-foot putt on the first hole of the final round to escape with bogey, watched a birdie putt hang on the edge of the cup at No. 10 for the longest time before dropping, chipped in for birdie on the 13th hole and hit the best shot of his life ? a 7-iron on the par-3 17th ? for a birdie that clinched his first major.
FANTASY PLAYS: Daily fantasy strategies for baseball, golf

The PGA of America's Next Big Move
Last August, while the PGA of America was revealing its plans to shift its oldest event, the PGA Championship, from August to May starting in 2019, leaders of the organization were deep in the planning stages of another move?one potentially far bigger in scope and impact. In the coming weeks, the 100-year-old association is expected to announce that it is moving its national headquarters from its longtime home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., to new environs, most likely in Texas, though the location still is in doubt. A report last month indicated that the PGA was eyeing Frisco, Texas, near Dallas, but PGA of America spokesman Julius Mason told Golf Digest that a couple of bids are under consideration, including others in South Florida.
Should a team title count as much as a regular PGA Tour win?
For all the (deserving) attention the Zurich Classic has gotten the past two years for switching to a team event, there are two important distinctions that keep winning it from being worth as much as winning a regular PGA Tour title. Billy Horschel now has five wins under his belt -- plus a nifty title belt for his latest triumph at TPC Louisiana -- and teammate Scott Piercy now has four. Is that really worth the same as winning a tournament on your own?
Here's why Wells Fargo's sponsorship of Quail Hollow after 2019 isn't a done ...
Wells Fargo ?certainly likes golf,? but the bank is still reviewing its options before deciding whether to renew as title sponsor of its namesake Charlotte golf tournament after 2019, a bank official said this week. The decision is complex because the tournament?s place on the PGA Tour schedule after next year is still being finalized, said Kendall Alley, the bank's Charlotte region president. Quail Hollow Club is also hosting The Presidents Cup competition in 2021, and it?s not clear if the course would be able to host a second event that year. The outcome is important for more than just the bank. The tournament is one of the city?s premier sporting events and contributes more than $1 million
