Ollie Wilson under radar


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Spotted Oliver Wilson earlier this week at Quail Hollow, although the Englishman wasn’t on property in an official capacity.

“Flying under the radar,” he smiled on his way to the parking lot.

Wilson lives in Charlotte, although he predominately plays the European Tour, but did not request a sponsor exemption into the event because he played last week in Korea and he’s preparing for next week’s Players Championship.

Although he’s not a member at Quail Hollow he prepared for last month’s Masters on the layout’s quick greens.

Interestingly, Wilson will be in the first-timer’s press conference on Wednesday next week at the Players for the second consecutive year. He attended the managed meet-and-greet last year before withdrawing and plans to give it another try.
