Wells Fargo Championship
Quail Hollow Club
The PGA Tour heads to Charlotte for the first edition of this event since 2019.
The list of PGA Tour winners increased by one last week, as Sam Burns added his name to the list. Quite honestly, not many people were surprised to see him in the winner's circle. It's never a given that a player with plenty of game will win a Tour event at some point during his career, but it looked pretty evident heading into this season that Burns would get one at some point. The fact he picked one up so early in the season might be a surprise, but he just missed at The Genesis Invitational in February, and at that point, it was clear he'd wind up on top once he managed his nerves. It's always interesting to see where a win takes a player like Burns. He has loads of talent, and now that he's shown that he can handle the pressure while holding the lead on Sunday, he could take off. Of course, he could rest on his laurels with a Tour card in hand for the next two years. If you've followed Burns at all over the past year, though, it's clear he won't be resting on anything.
As for this week, although the Tour has not stopped here in a couple years, it will be a familiar venue for many, as the Wells Fargo event has been held at Quail Hollow regularly
