The PGA Tour rolls into Charlotte, NC this week for the Wells Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club. Mix in the southern charm and hospitality along with the caliber of the host course, and it’s no surprise that this event has quickly become a favorite stop among players on tour.

Playing at a demanding 7,445 yards in length, the course will force players to hit every club in their bags but birdies can come in bunches for players who are willing to play creative and aggressive shots.

 To pull off these types of bold shots, players will need complete trust in their golf ball and this week 94 players in the field of 156 will trust a Titleist golf ball for their success, more than 4 times the nearest competitor with 22 and more than all competitors combined.

Titleist was also the top choice among players in the irons (38), sand, lob and approach wedge (153) and putter (55) categories.

Check out the gallery above for a quick tour inside the ropes from earlier in the week.

FAST FACT: Quail Hollow Club will be hosting its first major championship in 2017 with the playing of the 99th PGA Championship.

Good luck to all the players this weekend!
