John Peterson surges, Tiger Woods plays 'fine' at Wells Fargo

John Peterson surges, Tiger Woods plays 'fine' at Wells Fargo”

He did not play in the PGA last year and missed the cut here in 2016, but impressively rattled off T9, T14 and T6 in the three years prior.

Which brings us nicely to McIlroy, the Quail Hollow course record holder, who makes his reappearance after a bitterly disappointing final round at Augusta nearly a month ago. I'm not a McIlroy guy - in fact, I usually hate playing him because of frequent high ownership and a less-than-average putter, but he arrives in-form and ready to attack a course which he has won on twice and has six top 10s in eight tries.

Peterson used three birdies on a five-hole stretch on his first nine holes to make the turn at 3 under before closing with back-to-back eagles on Nos. They'll go off at 12:50 p.m. ET on Thursday and 7:40 a.m. on Friday. You'd expect for those types of numbers to bring about some great finishes, and that's exactly what's happened for this young Brit... The field for this event is absolutely loaded, which should add to the excitement surrounding a tournament that has already established itself as one of the strongest on the PGA Tour schedule. Hell, Quail Hollow does not play like Quail Hollow anymore. Long off the tee with excellent Bermuda numbers, he ticks the right statistical boxes and won't need much improvement on recent efforts to contend.

Malnati didn't qualify for the PGA Championship previous year. Molinari proved his upside by finishing runner-up to Justin Thomas at Quail Hollow in the PGA Championship a year ago.

Paul Krishnamurty previews the annual PGA Tour fixture from Quail Hollow, occasionally billed as the "Sixth Major", in search of betting value at odds of 99-1 plus.

Murray gave us a decent run when a fast-finishing 14th at the Houston Open - which Steve Rawlings notes a useful correlation with Quail Hollow in his tournament preview. "When you get overconfident on those three holes, it can bite you". He is 3 shots off the lead. What he lacks on the greens won't be exposed as much under regular Quail Hollow conditions, and he should have an easy time getting around with his terrific tee and ironplay. "With greens this firm, they're spring and putting slow, so my feel was off all day". Additionally, the rough is significantly shorter (about an inch in most places) than it was a year ago, when players hit only 54% of greens from the rough, a season low.

Waffle House Shooting-The Latest story
James Shaw Jr , the hero who disarmed the shooter of his AR-15 rifle, likely prevented even more people from being hurt or killed. Police spokesman Don Aaron said Reinking requested a lawyer and was taken to a hospital before being booked into custody.

The course set-up this week will be more forgiving than it was when Thomas won last August, with more grass around the greens expected to offer better lies for chip shots.

Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler all are playing for the first time since the Masters. And Tiger, of course.

Peterson will go off at 8:30 on hole number 1.

"I would be lying if I said I wasn't thinking about it a lot", Harman said Tuesday ahead of the Wells Fargo Championship.

The PGA Tour is heading to Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C., this week for the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship. The 28-year-old set the course record in 2015 en route to setting a tournament scoring record at 21-under.
