CHARLOTTE - By Monday morning, it was quiet at the Quail Hollow Club except for the sounds of a tournament city being deconstructed.
Rory McIlroy was off to The Players Championship in Florida, the fans and volunteers were back at work, and it was another 51 weeks until it happens again.
When the 2011 Quail Hollow Championship returns - perhaps with a different name - it will have a tough act to follow.
Club president Johnny Harris said Wells Fargo's presence was more prominent around the event this year and likely will continue to increase in the coming years.
He said it's likely the Wells Fargo brand will become part of the event's name. Wells Fargo is the title sponsor through 2014.
"I can't imagine they won't put their name back on it in some way," Harris said. "The main thing with that is you don't want to confuse people by changing the name every few years."
It was the Wachovia Championship for six years and the Quail Hollow Championship the past two.
Kym Hougham, the tournament's executive director, said this year's event might have been the most successful overall.
"In a lot of ways, it was our best one," he said. "The champion was great. The fans and the volunteers were great. Our hospitality went well. There just weren't many issues.
"I don't know why all the stars lined up, but it seemed like our smoothest event ever."
Hougham said there were no issues related to Tiger Woods' return. Security was heightened around Woods, but no significant problems were reported.
"We were prepared, and I credit the people of Charlotte. They were courteous and they were respectful," Hougham said. "We figured there would be one or two loose cannons out there, but there weren't."
"Our security said it may have been our best year in terms of not having rowdy people to deal with."
Hougham said early reports indicate concession sales and parking were up over a year ago. There was also no noticeable drop in attendance during the weekend after Woods missed the cut.
