McCrory, Wells execs, golfers mingle at First Tee event

Gov. Pat McCrory, pro golfers and Wells Fargo executives mingled Tuesday afternoon at the bank's annual literacy program it conducts with Charlotte's The First Tee organization. It marked one of the main events of the second day of the Wells Fargo Championship week.

Wells Fargo gave $100,000 to the youth program, which teaches life skills through golf.

McCrory told the Observer he would also play in Wednesday's pro-am tournament out at Quail Hollow. He lauded The First Tee organization in a brief chat on his way out.

Behind him, PGA pros Rickie Fowler and J.J. Henry demonstrated a few putting and chipping tips in a brief sunny break of the Tuesday clouds.

Wells Fargo's chief marketing officer Jamie Moldafsky was also on hand. She said the bank would unveil a new commercial on Thursday in its "Conversations" campaign. More details to come on that later this week.
