John Peterson leads after one round of the Wells Fargo Championship

John Peterson leads after one round of the Wells Fargo Championship

"I hit the ball fine, I struggled with my speed all day", Woods told the Golf Channel. But he missed a 4-footer for birdie at the 14th and another 4-footer for par at the 16th. He started stroking 5-foot putts between two tees that guided his putter down the proper path. They feel springy, and they feel fast-especially as I'm walking on them, but they're not putting that way. "Still need to continue to work on it and try to get sharp and hopefully this will be a good week".

Woods tees off at 7:40 a.m. for Round 2 alongside Patrick Reed and Brooks Koepka with plenty of ground to make up. "What I was feeling and what I was sensing just didn't match up".

Woods was staring at the possibility of making the clubhouse outside the likely cut mark but, after following up a crunching drive with a short iron to 13 feet, he sank the putt to give himself a chance of staying in the tournament.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", said Woods, who received a warm welcome from the fans on the first tee box in his return to Charlotte. But the surface was a little on the slow side, and several players left putts extraordinarily short. And when it finally came to an end Thursday evening, after more than five hours of toiling around the course, Woods' round began the exact same way it ended. His ensuing putt lipped out hard, and while he dissected the par-5 that followed to make his third birdie of the day, Woods 3-putted from 15 feet on the 16th hole for bogey.

Tiger Woods fired a two-over-par 73 in Friday's (May 4) second round of the US PGA Wells Fargo Championship, leaving the 14-time major champion clinging on the projected cutline.

Woods bogeyed two and birdied one on the back nine to finish at even par on the day.

He walked off the seventh green holding his putter, one hand on the grip, the other on the head, as if he wanted to break it in half.

Woods said he's confident he will hit his irons better because he has a new set of them in his bag.

"I just didn't make anything today". I could take it straight from the range onto the golf course this morning.

John Peterson tops the leaderboard following a 6-under 65 that included eagles on back-to-back holes.

McIlroy says he licked his wounds for about a week after a final round 74 at the Masters, but is now trying to look forward rather than back.

"When Tiger committed to the tournament my teacher Jordan Dempsey texted me and said, 'You should play with Tiger on Tuesday, '" Love said. "I've always been a pretty good putter all of my career, so that's something I've never really anxious too much about". I needed to be more precise and I wasn't.
