From 2003 until 2016, Quail Hollow hosted a PGA Tour event every year. Tiger Woods played in six of those.

Thursday, Woods returns to the famous Charlotte, North Carolina course for the 15th Wells Fargo Championship.

Here’s a quick overlook of the six tournaments:

YEAR TOURNAMENT FINISH

2010 Quail Hollow Championship CUT
2009 Quail Hollow Championship 4
2007 Wachovia Championship 1
2005 Wachovia Championship T11
2004 Wachovia Championship T3

Tiger's lone win at Quail Hollow came in 2007. You know what else happened at Quail Hollow in 2007? Woods was paired with Michael Jordan for the pro-am that week:

That year, Woods' final three rounds in the tournament were all sub-70.

In the first four tournaments Woods played at Quail Hollow, he shot under 71 in 10 of his 16 rounds (never shooting worse than 75), made every cut, and had an average place of 4.75:

YEAR TOURNAMENT FINISH 1st ROUND 2nd ROUND 3rd ROUND 4th ROUND
2012 Wells Fargo CUT 71 73 - -
2010 Quail Hollow Championship CUT 74 79 - -
2009 Quail Hollow Championship 4 65 72 70 72
2007 Wachovia Championship 1 70 68 68 69
2005 Wachovia Championship T11 70 72 73 71
2004 Wachovia Championship T3 69 66 75 68
    AVERAGE: 69.8 71.7 71.5 70

In the past two, both since 2009, Woods hasn’t shot under 71 once, and hasn’t made the cut.

Only one name appears twice on that list, and that's Rory McIlroy. Along with his two victories at the course, it should also be noted that McIlroy has a total of six top-10 finishes in his eight starts at Quail Hollow, and has only finished worse than 22 once. His record there looks like this:

  • 2010 — Win
  • 2011 — CUT
  • 2012 — T2
  • 2013 — T10
  • 2014 — T8
  • 2015 — Win
  • 2016 — T4
  • 2017 — T22
McIlroy is coming off of a T5 finish at the Masters, a month after his Arnold Palmer Invitational victory. A perfect setup for his annual return to Quail Hollow.
