Arnold Palmer To Play In Wells Fargo Pro-Am

   Arnold Palmer is coming to play in the Wells Fargo Championship next week at the Quail Hollow Club.

   The pro-am portion, anyway.

   Palmer, a Quail Hollow member, will play with his grandson, Sam Saunders in the Wednesday pro-am event. Saunders received a sponsor exemption into the tournament.

    Palmer's group is scheduled to tee off at approximately 12:15 p.m. next Wednesday.

   It will be the first public round Palmer has played in Charlotte in 10 years, his last appearance coming at the 2001 Home Depot Invitational at the TPC at Piper Glen. Palmer brought a seniors event to Charlotte in 1982 after helping bring the PGA Tour's Kemper Open to Quail Hollow in 1969.

   Tickets for the Wednesday pro-am are available at and at a kiosk in Southpark Mall.
