Rory McIlroy, defending champion Max Homa, Jordan Spieth highlight the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship field
After a week south of the border, the PGA Tour heads to Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship.
Last season, the Wells Fargo was held at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm due to the 2022 Presidents Cup being staged at Quail Hollow later in the year. Max Homa claimed the title in 2022 while Rory McIlroy bested LIV Golf’s Abraham Ancer in 2021, the last time it was played in Charlotte.
Homa most recently missed the cut at the Zurich Classic alongside Collin Morikawa — who’s playing in the Wells Fargo for the first time — while McIlroy hasn’t played a Tour event since the Masters and received some backlash after skipping the RBC Heritage, the second elevated event he didn’t play in in 2023.
Jordan Spieth is making his first start in Charlotte since 2013. Rickie Fowler, whose first Tour win came at Quail Hollow 11 years ago, is also playing in the tournament.
Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm, the top two players in the world, are sitting this one out. Players are allowed to skip one designated event this year.
Here’s the full field for the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship.
