CHARLOTTE, N.C. — This year’s Wells Fargo Championship is the ninth designated event of the PGA Tour season, meaning the 156-player field was competing for a $20 million purse, with a whopping $3.6 million going to the winner.
After two rounds of play at Quail Hollow Club, 68 players made the weekend cut and another 88 are now heading home early and empty handed.
Three players who competed for the American team at the 2022 Presidents Cup last fall at Quail Hollow were sent packing, as well as a major champion, a rising PGA Tour star and a former world No. 1 who seemed to be rounding into form.
Here’s a closer look at some of the notable names who didn’t survive the 36-hole cut at the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship, which came in at 1 under par.
