    The Wells Fargo Championship was contested last week at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington. I have been to and played many championship golf courses, including Augusta National, and Eagle Point ranks among the top three courses I have been to.

    The players were raving about the layout and the conditions all week. Phil Mickelson said, “it ranks in the top five courses” they will play all year. Coming from Mickelson, this holds a tremendous amount of value to me.
