Wed, May 3, 2017: Zac Blair meets Eagle Point

(Screenshot: @z_blair)

The Wells Fargo Championship has been played at the Quail Hollow Club every year since its inception in 2003. Except for this year.

This year, the PGA Championship is at Quail Hollow, and in preparation, the Tour moved the Wells Fargo about 4 hours east. Normally the pros like familiarity – going back to a place they’ve played and mapped out numerous times – but it seems like the reception of Eagle Point has been really, really good in the past few days.

 

Resident Tour architecture guru/aficionado Zac Blair has been documenting his practice rounds on Twitter. The place looks uber pure, but judge for yourself: scroll through his page to get the full live-tweet experience, or, check out this nice little gallery packaged by the No Laying Up guys. Here’s my curated selection:

#1 – Blair may have the advantage this week with his “full immersion” technique – not afraid to get his hands dirty

#3 – Cool insight into other parts of the property as well as his creative thoughts on course design

Other notes:

Quail Hollow will host the President’s Cup in 2021 (More Eagle Point??)

DJ returns this week from injury – check him out on PGATOURLIVE.com tomorrow morning.

Webb and Pettersson (is that spelled right?) are both members here (credit to Golf Channel).
