It's easy to take for granted how good in every way the Wells Fargo Championship is.
That's part of its beauty.
All the little things, the details from getting people in and out to having a frozen yogurt machine for players and their families, add up to creating an event that's as special as the feeling it gives off.
The tournament did it again this year.
If you were on the 18th hole at Quail Hollow Sunday afternoon when the championship was being decided, you saw a spectacular scene. The golf course was as good as it has ever been and the gallery around the finishing hole as large as I can remember seeing.
Having Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy in a playoff with D.A. Points gave it just the right amount of star power at the end. Being the scene of Fowler's first PGA Tour victory adds another impressive chapter to a 10-year champions' story that's as good as you'll find. Woods. Singh. Furyk. McIlroy. And now Fowler.
It's 10 years old. Hard to believe. But it keeps getting better.
