The 2022 Wells Fargo Championship will get underway later this week, with the event relocating to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Maryland after previously taking place at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte.
Rory McIlroy will be looking to retain his title after winning last year’s tournament by one stroke - his first since his 2015 victory in North Carolina.
The 32-year-old is the only golfer that has won the Wells Fargo Championship more than once, while Jason Day (Australia) and Vijay Singh (Fiji) are the only previous winners outside of the US.
First held in 2003, the tournament has become one of the PGA Tour’s key events and is home to one of the toughest finishing stretches on the circuit, with 16, 17 and 18 known as the Green Mile.
