The Quail Hollow Championship is a PGA Tour golf tournament. The event is held at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolinamarker in early May. It was first played in 2003 as the Wachovia Championship and has attracted some of the top players on the tour. In 2009, the tournament had a $6.5 million purse with a winner's prize of $1.17 million.

From 2004–06, the tournament ended in a playoff. Additionally, the event is known to have one of the tougher finishes on tour with 16, 17, and 18 often ranked among the PGA Tour's toughest holes. The majority of the charitable proceeds from the tournament benefit Teach for America.

Sponsorship

The event is sponsored by Wells Fargo, which purchased Wachovia in 2008. In 2009, Wells Fargo dropped the Wachovia name from the tournament for marketing purposes (Wells Fargo is currently integrating Wachovia and dropping the Wachovia name). In addition, Wells Fargo was concerned about the image of a bank sponsoring a sporting event that had received Federal funding under the Troubled Assets Relief Program. Wells Fargo's sponsorship of the tournament runs through 2014.
