like CNY-Bikeman I first suspected a broken axle, but hat would b obvious to you since you greased the hub.
So there are a few possibilities, such as the bearings being tight, and the added compression form the closed QR making the difference.
OTOH, I think you might look elsewhere. The photo shows a bent hanger, it's possible or even likely that the dropouts aren't parallel. That means the closed skewer flexes the axle into an arc binding the bearing. Straighten the hanger which needs to be done anyway, and while at it bring the dropouts to parallel and try the wheel again.
