Wyndham Clark set to begin first title defense at Wells Fargo

wyndham clark

The last time Wyndham Clark found himself in the field for the Wells Fargo Championship, he didn’t have a single win on the PGA Tour to his name.

What a difference a year can make.

Clark will be gearing up for this year’s edition of the event as a defending champion for the first time ever. After taking the Wells Fargo title in 2023, he added two more victories to his ledger, prevailing at the U.S. Open last June before winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am just three months ago.

In seven events since Pebble Beach, Clark has missed the cut twice, but he has also come away with three top-five finishes. He landed in second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 10, then tied for second at The Players Championship a week later.

Clark most recently finished T3 at the RBC Heritage, and he’s been able to find the silver lining when it comes to finishing just behind the leader.

“I just think the more times I put myself in contention, the better I get even if I don’t win. So recently coming up short in Bay Hill and at The Players, I learned a lot,” Clark said. “I mean, even though I had won three times prior to those two second-place finishes, I still was learning. I just think the more I put myself in that situation, the better I’m going to get and learn.

“And as you put yourself in those positions, you want to be in those positions more. So that’s really what I look forward to every week when we tee it up on Thursday.”

Even though another one of his titles will be on the line in just over a month at the U.S. Open, Clark insists that he isn’t overlooking the Wells Fargo Championship by any means.

“This is one of my favorite Tour events, one of my favorite golf courses,” Clark said of the Wells Fargo, which is held at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. “If there’s anything that I before the year get excited about, it’s this event. So I’m really focused on this week.

“It’s fun, it’s my first chance to defend. I don’t know what that’s like, so it’s been exciting. Hope I can go out and have a great week and play my best and maybe defend it. Yeah, no, I’m focused on this week.”

Clark carded a 19-under 265 at Quail Hollow last year for the lowest 72-hole score in the history of the Wells Fargo. He beat Xander Schauffele by four strokes.
