Xander Schauffele’s ruling explained at Wells Fargo Championship

Xander Schauffele’s ruling explained at Wells Fargo Championship

In the opening round of the 2024 Wells Fargo Championship, Xander Schauffele made an eventful par on No. 8. It was made possible by a ruling after the seven-time PGA TOUR winner sent his tee shot on the drivable par-4 into thick bushes right of the fairway but was allowed to drop his ball outside of the shrubbery because a ShotLink tower stood between him and the hole. Golf Channel analyst Johnson Wagner and Senior Tournament Referee David Donnelly returned to the par-4 8h hole on Friday to explain the ruling in further detail.


The PGA TOUR heads to Charlotte, North Carolina this week for the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club – site of the 2017 PGA Championship and 2022 Presidents Cup. This is the sixth signature event of the season, which features an elite field of 69 players. Rory McIlroy returns this week to a place where he’s had plenty of success. He’s claimed three victories here (2010, 2015 and 2021), as well as five top-10s. He enters this week with momentum after winning the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with Shane Lowry two weeks ago. Wyndham Clark will also tee it up as he looks to become the first player to win back-to-back here. This was Clark’s first win on TOUR, and he has claimed two more titles since that victory – including the U.S. Open. Xander Schauffele will also be in Charlotte this week as he hopes to secure his first win. He finished second here in 2023 and claimed T25 or better in 10 of 11 events this season. Others to look out for are Max Homa, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Tommy Fleetwood.
