19 Revealing Photos from the Wells Fargo Championship

Published

on

Last week, The Players Championship was about as exciting as it gets; Rickie Fowler beat out Kevin Kisner and Sergio Garcia in a playoff to cap off one of the best finishes on the PGA Tour in recent memory.

This week, the Tour is at the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, N.C. Maybe we shouldn’t expect the same exciting finish, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a fresh batch of photos to analyze.

Here’s this week’s edition of Revealing Photos from the Wells Fargo at Quail Hollow Club, and in case you missed it, here are all the photo galleries from the 2015 Wells Fargo.

Back-breaking move here from Colts fan Patrick Rodgers

a9e27638027bec57f8189f5c4d712495

Back-breaking… like what the Colts did to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots by tattling about deflated footballs; eventually costing Brady a 4-game suspension, $1 million and two top draft picks for the Pats.

This week in “These PGA Tour guys are pampered,” the most perfect grass range in existence

And look at all these targets.

An average golfer’s dream, but just business as usual for the PGA Tour guys.

Luke Donald put the Mizuno JPX Prototype driver in play last week at The Players

Is Chuckie 3 Sticks next? We spotted him testing Mizuno’s new driver this week, as well.

“Should I have worn the plaid pants?”

“Ehhh, maybe not.”

Is that, what I think it is?

2d4c01d82c687437e90138643856131d

This BioMech TechDeck is kickflippin’ into everyone’s bag these days, eh?

Jhonny Vegas is sponsored by MGM Grand Las Vegas

3e6a0dba96aab0f24f8fcd14db4be8d7

The biggest no-brainer, player-sponsor combination of all time.

Phil Mickelson starring as Crocodile Dundee at the Wells Fargo

Gator leather shoes, belt and even yardage book? Can’t imagine PETA is rooting for Phil this week.

Louis Oosthuizen testing out Mitsubishi Rayon’s “Tensei” Tour prototype

Enjoy the photos, because we don’t have any information on the prototype shaft… yet.

Chesson Hadley reminds me of someone

943adecce6b92a5427e725ef93f0cb71

Remember in the show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia when “the guys” compare Dee’s dance moves to an inflatable man that car dealerships use to promote a big sale?

The resemblance here is uncanny.

Three bro’s, three poker chips…

Three happy faces. If you’re at a Tour event, make sure to find photographer Greg Moore and ask for a GolfWRX poker chip.

Golf Pride TalkBack putter grip, Golf Pride putter headcover, Golf Pride putter shaft label…

94838bdce170fe8135f14bac63cf289e

Is there a Golf Pride putter that we don’t know about?

A weekly reminder how difficult golf is

0617219c6a5326796e8a17bb3a365a7a

Look at all these training aids specifically designed to help golfers putt the ball into the hole. Boards, path guiders, mirrors, sticks… and these guys are the best in the world.

It appears that Sam Saunders is in full NHL Playoff mode

a07ca26f31bd677b15cc53fd1a273846

He even wrapped his putter grip like a hockey stick.

Finally spotted: K.J. Choi NOT working out at the range

de09082fc9f72a3f525c947431275553And it looks as though he’s testing Matrix Ozik’s new MF Series X4 shaft. He’ll probably test it between sets of squats.

Is Jason Gore signing autographs?

ece8700b7d6479279186df82b8338829

Or asking for directions?

Kevin Chappell’s delicious bag full of Vapors

Question: Does being sponsored by Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse mean you get free meals at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse? Follow up question: Does Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse sponsor golf writers? I’m asking for a friend.

Just when you think you know someone, they switch it up on you

I thought Robert Streb only had Step Brothers quotes stamped on his wedges, but this island green stamping puts my judgements to rest. I underestimated you, Robert, and for that I apologize.

Tour Edge Exotics new CB Pro F2 fairway wood

Like the new CB Pro U hybrids, the CB Pro F2 fairway woods also feature steel fork heads attached to their soles for better turf interaction.

Note: No cutlery or kitchenware was actually used in the construction of these golf clubs. 

If you ever think you’re too good to play “game-improvement” clubs, or that pros only play blades…

    Where will Streb take his wedge personalization next? The be-dazzler?

    You should at least h/t Jimmy Fallon for the old joke about the Mattress Firm inflatable flailing arm man.
