Wells Fargo Championship 2018: John Peterson Holds 2-Stroke Lead After Round 1

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - After two days of poor putting and mounting frustration, Tiger Woods at least had a hint of a self-deprecating sense of humor Friday when his only birdie putt of the second round dropped on his final hole. Part of his issue seemed to come from judging the speed of the greens; many of his putts from short range ran out of energy. It's a very unusual combo to have firm [greens] but a little bit on the slower side.

"If I can just putt - literally, if I just putt normal, I'm probably five or six under par", he said. "Today I tried to make sure I hit the putts harder and I kept pulling them".

"We had a testing process basically since December of a year ago and we finally got to the point where, yeah, I can put them in the bag and play", he said.

Since that time, Quail Hollow underwent alterations in advance of the 2017 PGA Championship, including a different strain of grass on the greens.

"Most of the golf courses I've played have been really hard setups, whether it's Torrey, LA., Honda, no one went low". The bunkers are certainly more in play than they used to be, and the greens are new, so they're a little springy. He won this tournament in 2007, but missed the cut the last two times he played in 2010 and 2012. 1, 2, and 3.

John Peterson upstaged several big names to grab a two-shot lead at the Wells Fargo Championship as Tiger Woods made a solid start.

Again and again Woods gave himself chances, but at each turn he and his Scotty Cameron looked out of sync.

The former world number one, who started on the back nine, made his only birdie of the day when he rolled in a 13-footer at the par-four ninth for a two-over-par 73 that left him at two-over for the week at Quail Hollow. When that fell into the center of the cup, he raised his arms as if to say "finally!" and grinned in relief. He has hit 26 of 36 greens through two rounds and ranks in the top 10 in the field in strokes gained off the tee. He knows that won't be the case on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) when he will be in one of the first groups off the tee. After finishing his round and speaking to the media, Woods went to a practice green to work on his putting. "Those two showed me that the putt hangs, the wind's coming off the right so it's going to hold it up a little bit more, and I trusted it and I hit it and I made it". "I have to trust it, what I keep telling myself, but the feels are telling me another thing".
