Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler confused by slow greens at Wells Fargo Championship

He would shoot another 1 over 72 today to finish his 2 rounds at 2 over which means Lefty will be playing this weekend at Quail Hollow as well.

"I've hit it good enough to be right up next to that lead", Woods said.

Rory McIlroy reflects on a strong start to the Wells Fargo Championship and discusses his performance at the Masters.

Tiger Woods drained a birdie putt on his final hole of the day Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship to make the cut and survive into the weekend, but he said he still hasn't adjusted to some of the more confusing greens he's dealt with.

Going out as one of the afternoon starters, McIlroy failed to convert from eight feet to save par at the first and dropped another shot at the fifth after being unable to get up-and-down from a bunker.

"Struggled with my game, struggled to get my ball in the fairway, made some pretty bad mistakes, didn't birdie any of the par 5s", McIlroy said.

McIlroy mixed five birdies with two bogeys to shoot a first-round 68, which now positions him in the top five on the leaderboard and just one stroke off the pace as the afternoon wave of players begin their rounds.

Rory was three shots off the lead in second place heading into the final round of the season's first major - the only one to-date he has yet to win.

Unlike past years, when Woods seemed to spend his time away from tournaments simply rehabbing and resting so he could play, he presumably has gotten in some good work to prepare for this next stretch. I never want to get in the way of his putting or whatever he's doing, but we always try and help each other out.

"I don't see him retiring anytime soon", Peterson said with a smile. "But having fun and being relaxed aren't the same thing".

"I expect a lot of myself as a player so I'm thinking about the couple that I missed out there", Malnati said.

He was at his best over the last three holes Friday.

Facing a delicate pitch on the next hole from about 50 yards, to a slightly elevated green with the pin on a slope, he got that to 10 feet and holed the putt. Didn't birdie any of the par-5s.

Beginning on the back nine, Malnati cancelled out a bogey on the 10th with birdies on 15 and 18, with another three birdies added on the front nine.

So far, Quail Hollow is the second-toughest course of the season. Aaron Wise and Jason Day were tied for second. Woods even played back-to-back tournaments twice - the Genesis Open and Honda Classic, then after a week off, the Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational. But this week is a combo that I'm just not. they're springy, firm but a little on the slower side.

"If I don't make it, I'm not playing golf anymore". "I'm trying to have it for a long time". They treat you great every week.
