Rory has Quail on his schedule

   Checking in from the Masters, where it looks as magnificent as ever, even if the azalea blooms are largely gone:

  -- Rory McIlroy says on his official website that that his next event after the Masters will be the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in early May. McIlroy still has to put his name on the PGA Tour's official commitment list but that's essentially a formality. McIlroy, of course, won the 2010 event at Quail Hollow;

  -- Webb Simpson is going to be a father for the second time. Simpson said Monday his wife, Dowd, is due with their second child in early August. Their first child, James, is 13 months olds.

  -- Johnson Wagner says he's hitting the ball as well as he has at any time in his PGA Tour career and he feels he's ironed out a few unwanted wrinkles in his putting. Wagner said he got too focused on certain mechanics in his stroke and is working on decluttering his pre-shot process on the greens.
