CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

This week, Augusta will be the center of the golf world but in 3 weeks, Charlotte will be under the spotlight and one of the top golfers in the world will be at the Quail Hollow Club.

On Tuesday, Rory McIlroy committed to play in the upcoming Wells Fargo Championship.  McIlroy is currently the 2nd rated golfer in the world and won the championship back in 2010.  That was his first professional win of his career.

He almost won last year before falling in a playoff to Rickie Fowler.

The Wells Fargo Championship now has 3 of the current major winners from last season committed to play.  McIlroy (2012 PGA Champion) joins Bubba Watson (2012 Masters) and Webb Simpson (2012 U.S. Open).

Expect more top names to continue to commit after the completion of the Masters.
