Why "The Undertow"?
During the CBS broadcast of the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club, announcer Gary McCord made notice that Hole No.'s 2, 3 and 4 on The North Course played among the third most-difficult on the PGA TOUR for the season (that includes the South Course).
At that point, course management decided to have fun with the interesting stat and create a naming contest. "The Green Mile," "The Bear Trap," and "The Blue Monster" now have some company. The North Course’s newly-famed three-hole stretch was named "The Undertow" by San Diego resident Peter Look, who prevailed in a summer 2018 contest featuring over 400 entries to grace the difficult holes with an appropriate moniker.
Now, you can be a part of history by playing in the first event that pays homage to the name.
