TENDING THE FLAG ON 17

The standard Wells Fargo Championship pin flag on Quail Hollow Club’s signature 17th hole was replaced this year with an American Flag. Each day, Thursday through Sunday, a different Wells Fargo Team Member, who is an active reservist or military veteran, was asked to tend the flag. This marks the second year Wells Fargo has adopted this program.
