This year’s Wells Fargo Championship Pro-Am will feature many notable names from various Charlotte-area sports teams.

It had previously been announced that Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey will be participating, however, a teammate and other Panthers figures will be joining him.

Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson, former head coach Ron Rivera and former tight end Wesley Walls will all take part in the event Wednesday. Rivera has taken part in years past.

Wednesday’s Pro-Am will officially be Roy Williams Day in honor of the now-retired Tar Heels basketball coach. Williams will play alongside North Carolina football coach Mack Brown. Touring professionals Davis Love III and Gary Woodland will play with the duo.
