Monday qualifiers: 2015 Wells Fargo Championship

For the first time in three weeks, the PGA Tour held a Monday qualifying tournament, and the four-spot for the Wells Fargo Championship was a low-scoring affair.

Scott Gutschewski, Travis Howe, Matthew Thompson and Andres Echavarria are the Monday qualifiers for the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship.

The long-hitting Gutschewski was the medalist in the 18-hole event at Rocky River Golf Club with a 7-under 65. After the Nebraska native, five players tied at 6 under par, forcing a five-for-three playoff. Howe, Thompson and Echavarria survived, leaving Mathew Goggin and Brad Adamonis on the outside looking in at Quail Hollow Club this week.

The 27-year-old Echavarria has missed the cut in all five of his Tour starts this season, but does have a runner-up finish on PGA Tour Latinoamerica.

Howe is a relative unknown, missing the cut at the United Leasing Championship on the Tour.

Thompson, who turned pro in 2012, is a product of the University of Michigan. He's played most of his golf this year on the eGolf Gateway Tour.

Scott Gutschewski has been off the PGA and Tours since 2013 and was planning on making his Tour comeback in the coming weeks to the second-tier tour. However, the 38-year-old tweeted happily that wasn't imminent.
