Wells Fargo Championship report: What happened at Quail Hollow?

Max Homa stormed to a first PGA Tour title as he shot a final round of 67 to beat Joel Dahmen by three shots.

The American held a share of the overnight lead and was the coolest player on the course throughout Sunday, ensuring that he was able to get over the line.

Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy and more superstars were all in the hunt on Sunday but none were able to reel in the fantastic Homa.

While there were several highlights of his round, the clutch putt to save par at the 17th was a hugely significant shot.

Homa made no mistake at 18 and there was a celebration to match…

Two years ago, the 28-year-old earned just over $18,000 dollars on the PGA Tour – this week’s victory will see him collect a huge $1.4 million.

“It’s like I’m in a dream,” he told Sky Sports on the back of 18.

Wells Fargo Championship report: Talking points

There was a big birthday to celebrate on tour this week, and the golfing world obliged.

There was a song on the 1st tee at Quail Hollow and compilation videos galore on Twitter as Rory McIlroy tricked over into his 30s.

Victory was not to be this time for Rory, but the first round in his 30s was a 3-under-par 68 on Saturday, so things could have been worse.


Its fair to say that Brandel Chamblee and Brooks Koepka don’t quite see eye-to-eye and on Saturday there was another moment that highlighted the feud.

Chamblee recently stated on his podcast that he believed only Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy could rival Tiger Woods as the best player in the game.

Clearly, Koepka, a three-time major champion, believed otherwise as he shared a photo of the Golf Channel analyst on Twitter with a clown’s nose added.

We’re on the edge of our seats waiting for the next twist…


Harold Varner III was arguably the most entertaining player to miss the cut this week.

Throughout the course of his two rounds, the American chipped-in no fewer than three times.


One of the most heartwarming moments of the week came courtesy of Desert Classic Champion, Adam Long.

The American’s 98-year-old grandmother made the trip to Quail Hollow to watch her grandson play on tour for the first time.

As you can expect, she enjoyed it and her reactions were priceless.
