TPC Potomac hosting 2022 Wells Fargo Championship - Here's how to see the top PGA golfers up close

The tournament is also looking for volunteers to help out in many areas on the course this year. You can score tickets and perks by volunteering. Here's how.

POTOMAC, Md. — EDITOR'S NOTE: WUSA9 is the media sponsor of the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship, hosted at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farms.

The PGA Tour 2022 Wells Fargo Championship swings into TPC Potomac from May 4-8 and WUSA9 is proud to be this year's media partner. While WUSA9 Sports Director Darren Haynes is out testing the course alongside Sharla McBride and Chief Meteorologist Topper Shutt during Media Day, we're getting the scoop on what to expect if you make your way out to the greens in May. 

While the Wells Fargo Championship usually is played at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, this year the event moves to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm because of the Presidents Cup held at Quail Hollow in 2021. 

TPC Potomac is known for its natural rolling terrain and Scottish-style bunkering. The par 70 golf course measures 7,139 yards and has played host to several PGA Tour events such as the Quicken Loans National and the Neediest Kids Championship.
