Strong course, minus strong field at Quail Hollow

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Quail Hollow had the energy of a major when it first returned to the PGA Tour schedule 11 years ago.

Now it's gearing up to host the real thing — the 2017 PGA Championship — with new grass on the greens and an exciting renovation of its daunting, three-hole closing stretch known as the "Green Mile."

Phil Mickelson says there's not much that can make the Wells Fargo Championship much better.

All that's lacking is a major field.

Mickelson and Justin Rose are the only players from the top 10, and while that's one more than last year, it's a mighty change from the time when Quail Hollow once attracted everyone from the top 10, and 27 of the top 30 in the world.
