You might notice an extra letter in Will Wilcox's name on PGA Tour leaderboards in 2017. That's because Will Wilcox is changing his name, at least in so far as the PGA Tour knows it.

Will Wilcox is going to go by Willy Wilcox moving forward.

If that's what the man wants, that's what the man gets. Wilcox's agent has already gotten the Tour's approval to tack on the extra -y to Wilcox's name, so it's official.

Go get 'em, Willy.
