Wyndham Clark Player Profile And What's In The Bag

By: | Tue 09 May 2023 | Comments

WYNDHAM CLARK saw off a world-class field as he won the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow by four shots to claim his maiden PGA Tour title.

The 29-year-old American started the final round with a two-shot lead and he followed his magnificent third round of 63 with a three-under 68 to finish on 19 under and four shots clear of compatriot Xander Schauffele.

"It's been a long five years to get to this point, it was well worth the wait and I'm so grateful," Clark said. "I think in years past I might have folded," he said.

"This time I just stayed patient and hung in there and got hot on the back side.

"There's so many times I wanted to cry and break clubs - and I did break the club sometimes - in this journey and to get to this point is so sweet. It's just amazing to finally do this."

England's Tyrrell Hatton, who had shared the halfway lead, was tied third on 12 under with American Harris English. Tommy Fleetwood was a shot further back alongside Adam Scott of Australia.

Clark lost his two-shot advantage in the first three holes and trailed Schauffele after seven holes.

But he pulled away on the back nine, leading by five at one stage, and could even afford to bogey the final hole.
