Commissioner Tim Finchem leaned on charity as a reason why he has no plans to relocate PGA Tour events from North Carolina over HB2, the so-called ”bathroom bill” that limits protects for LGBT people. The NBA pulled the All-Star Game from Charlotte, while the NCAA said it would not hold the first and second rounds of the men’s basketball tournament in North Carolina and the ACC relocated all its championships from the state. The Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte has been around since 2003, while the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro dates to 1938.
