Phil Mickelson, who finished second at last week’s Masters, has committed to play in the Wells Fargo Championship at Charlotte’s Quail Hollow Club for a 12th consecutive year.
Although Mickelson has never won the Charlotte tournament, he holds the event record for most top-10 finishes with seven in 11 appearances. His best finishes have been a second in 2010, a third in 2013 and a tie for third in 2007. His $2.6 million is second on the tournament’s all-time money list.
“Phil certainly brings another level of excitement when he enters a tournament and we are grateful he has been a good friend of this tournament, said tournament executive director Kym Hougham in a statement. “During the past eleven years he has supported this event not only by his presence but as an advocate away from Charlotte. His record here has been very consistent and I anticipate he will once again be a factor during the weekend.”
Mickelson’s Masters finish was his best of the season. He’s ranked 18th in the world and has 42 career victories.

The tournament is scheduled for May 14-17. Among other players who have committed are Adam Scott, as well as 2014 champion J.B. Holmes. Players have until 5 p.m. on May 8 to commit.
