CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A month removed from the Masters, Team Canada standout Corey Conners returns to the PGA TOUR by way of sponsor exemption to this week’s Wells Fargo Championship.

Conners, a 23-year-old Listowel, Ont. native, will play in his second PGA TOUR event as a professional—he played in the RBC Heritage in April following his top-amateur performance at Augusta the week prior.

Joining Conners at Quail Hollow are Canadians Adam Hadwin (Abbotsford, B.C.), David Hearn (Brantford, Ont.), Roger Sloan (Merritt, B.C.), Nick Taylor (Abbotsford, B.C.) and Canadian golf Hall-of-Famer Mike Weir (Brights Grove, Ont.).

Conners is set to tee-off Thursday at 8:50 a.m. EST.
