A Quick Peek at the Wells Fargo

Since the Wells Fargo Championship is played in Charlotte NC, just about 90 minutes south of where I live, and since GC's coverage starts today, I thought I'd take a quick look at what you can expect this year. Overall, things look pretty good.

Defending champion Rory McIlroy

Of course, defending champion Rory McIlroy is there, as are Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Adam Scott and Phil Mickelson. These guys are just some of the big names who show up at Quail Hollow fairly often, and it means we may get a change in my RGWR this week should one of them win.

Jim Furyk usually plays here and this is his first tournament back from wrist surgery. I don't expect him to win but it should be a good place to test how well he's healed up.

There are some new names like Bryson DeChambeau, Ollie Schniederjans, Patton Kizzire and Bobby Wyatt (remember him from last week?). And the Carolina contingent is back in force -- guys like Webb Simpson, Chesson Hadley and rookie Harold Varner III, led by Davis Love III.

Names that have withdrawn are Stewart Cink, because of his wife's cancer diagnosis, and Dustin Johnson, who quoted a schedule conflict (apparently unexpected) that interfered with his trip down.

And I haven't even touched on the large international cast, many of whom are likely warming up for THE PLAYERS next week.

Wells Fargo is an event that usually delivers on its promises, and this week should be no different. Plus, the weather looks like it's going to be pretty good so the guys are probably looking forward to that!

GC's coverage begins today at 4pm ET.
