Phil Mickelson commits to play at Quail Hollow

Phil Mickelson, coming off a disappointing performance at last week’s Masters, is the latest player to commit to the Wells Fargo Championship May 2-5 at Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club .

Mickelson, ranked 10th in the world, tied for 54th at Augusta National with a 9-over-par 297. He has usually played well at Quail Hollow, with six top-10 finishes in nine appearances at the Wells Fargo tournament, a record.

His best finish is a second in 2010, followed by a tie for fifth in 2005, tie for third in 2007, tie for fifth in 2004, tie for fifth in 2009, tie for seventh in 2005 and tie for ninth in 2011.

Others who have already committed include Rory McIlroy, Charlotte’s Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Lee Westwood and Sergio Garcia. Tournament officials have said they expect Tiger Woods to play, with an announcement coming possibly by the end of this week. David Scott
