McIlroy in the mix again at Quail Hollow

Adjust Comment Print

Peterson, the 29-year-old free spirit who has pledged to retire from golf's vagabond lifestyle if he doesn't earn enough money to keep his card in three events, made back-to-back eagles late in the opening round Thursday for a 6-under 65 that gave him a two-shot lead in the Wells Fargo Championship.

After a one-week dip into team play, the PGA Tour switches back to the trusty 72-hole stroke play format for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

"It's pretty cool when Tiger is a couple groups behind you, Rickie (Fowler) is two groups behind you and the crowds are awesome". Although he doesn't have the length off the tee we would normally like, his magical putter can more than make up for it. Perhaps, therefore, this is a good opportunity for one of golf's forgotten prospects to step up. Over that span, he was one of the most consistently excellent golfers on Tour and most recently had finished in the top-25 in all but one event this season, including a win at the Valspar. As one of the top distance drivers on the Tour, Mitchell took advantage of the his length and go as low as 5 under on the round with a birdie on No. 14. "I feel like I don't have to play that well and I can still get it around". He should be able to reach the three par 5s easily, and turn the nine par 4s that play over 450 yards into driver/9 iron, driver/wedge holes. This week should be no different, as Streelman arrives with back-to-back top 10s and has four top 15 finishes at Quail Hollow in the past six years. Rory enters the week 5th in strokes gained: tee to green and 19th in strokes gained on par 4's.

Tesla Reports Another Loss as It Struggles With Model 3
But when analysts wanted to delve into the details about gross margin, Musk brushed off the questions as "not cool" and "boring". But Tesla isn't making that version yet; more recently, it's referred to that price point as a "variant" instead of a "base".

The Masters champ shook off his post-Augusta hangover last week at the Zurich Classic, finishing tied for seventh, giving Reed five straight top-10 finishes. "I mean, not a lot of people get to do that, make a long putt on the last hole to win a tournament, that's something that you think about all the time". He closed strong at The Masters to finish T19.

"Either way is fine with me", Peterson said.

In his highly anticipated return to Charlotte, Woods was left puzzled by the greens. "If I did hit a green, I hit it above the hole, I hit it in the wrong spot".

Dhoni, Watson fifties help Chennai Super Kings put 211 on board
An enterprising innings from Pant included four sixes before the impressive Lungi Ngidi removed him in the 18th over. Dhoni has been in incredible form during this year's IPL and once again showed just how valuable he can be.

"I didn't have any speed probably the last four-five years", Woods said.

"The golf course is much harder than it used to be, that's for sure", Woods said after his pro-am round Wednesday. Phil also has been producing some impressive birdie-making and bogey-avoiding numbers, ranking 2nd in both Birdie or Better % and Birdie Total and 1st in Bogey Avoidance (over the past 24 rounds).

McIlroy said it took him about a week to start getting over it. Last but not least, Joaquin Niemann is a big prospect and fancied to go well, although [180.0] seemed a bit skinny about a teenager from Chile who's only just turned pro.

Tiger shoots even-par 71 to open Wells Fargo Championship
Or even if he makes enough money to keep his card? Woods, Koepka and Reed won't have long to wait before teeing it up again. What to watch for: As Bob Harig notes at ESPN.com , Woods' short game has been as good as anyone's.

Those modifications don't even include the updates made on the course a few years back, when a redesign for the tough 16th hole put water into play on a longgg second shot.
