Arnold Palmer to play in Quail Hollow pro-am

Arnold Palmer will play in the Wells Fargo Championship pro-am

on May 4 and be paired with his grandson.

The tournament announced Monday that Palmer will play with Sam

Saunders, who is getting a sponsor exemption to play in the PGA

Tour event at Quail Hollow. Club president Johnny Harris will

complete the threesome.

The 81-year-old Palmer won 62 times on the PGA Tour, including

seven major championships. He helped oversee the modification of

several holes at Quail Hollow in 1986.

Palmer last played a public round in Charlotte when he competed

in a Champions Tour event in 2001.
