CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Arnold Palmer will play in the Wells Fargo Championship pro-am on May 4 and be paired with his grandson.
The tournament announced Monday that Palmer will play with Sam Saunders, who is getting a sponsor exemption to play in the PGA Tour event at Quail Hollow. Club president Johnny Harris will complete the threesome.
The 81-year-old Palmer won 62 times on the PGA Tour, including seven major championships. He helped oversee the modification of several holes at Quail Hollow in 1986.
Palmer last played a public round in Charlotte when he competed in a Champions Tour event in 2001.
