Tee Times for the Wells Fargo Championship

The PGA Tour has hit the halfway point, and with the U.S. Open a little more than a month away the attention is now turning to preparation for the season’s second major. The first half of the season got off to a little bit of a slow start. Starting this week, the tour starts to heat up as there is a big event with big names every week leading up to the U.S. Open on June 13th. This week the tour makes its yearly stop at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina for the Wells Fargo Championship. Here are some tee times and pairings to keep an eye on for Thursday and Friday.

Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Nick Watney (7:40am Thursday and 1:05pm Friday)- All three have had a lot of success at this course over the years. Fowler is your defending champion at the event. The Loxahatchee River resident got his first PGA Tour win here last year, defeating Rory Mcllroy in a playoff. In his other two starts at Quail Hollow he has finished 16th or better. Mickelson has six top-10 finishes in his nine starts at Quail Hollow, including a second place finish in 2010. Watney has finished in the top 25 in three of his last four appearances here including an eighth place finish last year.

Rory Mcllroy, Bubba Watson, Angel Cabrera (12:55pm Thursday and 7:30am Friday)- Mcllroy is the only player in the top 10 in the world rankings. Just like Fowler, the Wells Fargo Championship was the site of Mcllroy’s first win on tour in 2010. The Palm Beach Gardens resident followed that up with a second place finish last year when he lost to Fowler on the first playoff hole.

Lee Westwood, Lucas Glover, Zach Johnson (1:50pm Thursday and 7:40am Friday)- Westwood tied for fifth at the event last year and has had a pretty impressive start to his 2013 season. The Old Palm resident has not teed it up since the Masters when he finished in a tie for eighth. He has made the cut in all eight of his starts this year, including three top-10 finishes.  Glover won at Quail Hollow in 2011 and was a runner up in 2009. Johnson tied for sixth in 2011 and his still looking for his first top-10 finish of 2013.
