Tournament officials announced today the commitment from one of golf’s greatest players, Phil Mickelson, for the Wells Fargo Championship, scheduled for April 30-May 6 at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC.
Mickelson, the World Golf Hall of Fame member and winner of 43 career PGA TOUR titles, will be competing in his 15th Wells Fargo Championship. The five-time major championship winner holds the tournament record for the most top-ten finishes with nine. These include a third-place finish in both 2007 and 2013, a runner-up finish in 2010 and back-to-back fourth place finishes in both 2015 and 2016. Mickelson also holds the tournament record for most consecutive 36-hole cuts made with 14.
“We are delighted that Phil will be joining us once again as we return to Charlotte this year,” Tournament Director Gary Sobba said. “He has supported and praised our tournament throughout the years and I know he wants to add the Wells Fargo Championship to his list of career titles.”
With over $3.3 million in career earnings at the Wells Fargo Championship, Mickelson is the only player ranked among the top ten on that list, who has not won the tournament.
Earlier this season, Mickelson won the World Golf Championships—Mexico Championship. Players have until Friday, April 27 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time to commit to the Wells Fargo Championship. They can withdraw from the tournament at any time.
