CHARLOTTE – The PGA TOUR honored the 2019 Wells Fargo Championship during its tournament meetings on Nov. 20 with the “Players Choice” award.
The award, voted on exclusively by PGA TOUR members, is based on players’ experiences during tournament week. It considers tournament services, hospitality, player and family amenities and the golf course.
“The tournament committee and title sponsor Wells Fargo should be extremely proud of their collaborative efforts and for being celebrated by the players themselves as the best on TOUR,” said Andy Pazder, chief tournaments and competitions officer.
Tournament staff created an exceptional player experience, with players taking special note of the player hospitality area.
“We are honored the players, their families, as well as the caddies, have selected us – out of all the other PGA TOUR tournaments – as the week where they have the best experience,” said Gary Sobba, director of the Wells Fargo Championship Tournament. “Since the birth of this tournament in 2003, one of the primary goals each year is to make sure everyone who steps on the property of Quail Hollow Club feels at home.”
This is the first time the Wells Fargo Championship has won Players Choice. It won Tournament of the Year in back-to-back years (2009 and 2010), and was most recently recognized for Best Tournament Sales and Salesperson of the Year in 2018.
The 2020 Wells Fargo Championship will be held April 27 to May 3 at Quail Hollow Club.
