A marquee with Tiger and more


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Just ran into Quail Hollow Championship tournament director Kym Hougham on the practice tee who had the look of a 7 year old on Christmas morning.

“It is going to be unbelievable,” Hougham said.

No, Hougham was not talking about a marquee that includes Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Instead he was referring to the pairing of Fred Couples and Michael Jordan in the Wednesday afternoon pro-am.

The two stars are set to tee off at 12:18 p.m. (ET), while Woods is scheduled to be in the day’s first group (7:30 a.m.) and Mickelson is scheduled for a 1:03 p.m. tee time.
