Shane Lowry back in PGA Tour action at the Wells Fargo Championship

06 May 2018

Tiger Woods blamed his inability to adjust to slow greens for another mediocre putting performance in the second round at the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina on Friday. My feels just aren't matching up with the speed of these greens. He took his opportunity on the par-five seventh to bounce back with a final birdie of his round before closing out his day's work with two pars.

Woods said earlier in the week the greens were "springy" and doubled down on the sentiment Friday. 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've had ample time to make the adjustment and I just haven't. Especially in practice and at home, [I remember] the putts I would have to certain pins, going through the golf course in my head. Following Thursday's first round, he didn't sound anxious about his putting woes, for he was confident he would find a cure because he has throughout his career.

Malnati, who is chasing only his second victory on the PGA Tour, attributed his smooth start to a more laidback approach to his game. Which is understandable seeing as he has taken 64 putts through 36 holes.

McIlroy had bogeyed his first and fifth holes before a first birdie in sending a booming 376-yard drive down the ninth and then brilliantly landing his second to just four feet. "I made the last putt". Guys will be happy to play those three holes at even par all four rounds if they can. However, recent form is an issue as he has made just two cuts in his last five events since his win at the Phoenix Open.

Peterson, a former American collegiate champion, led a group of five players by two strokes, while Woods missed two putts from inside five feet en route to a 71.

But through 18 holes at Quail Hollow he's ahead of some of the biggest names in the sport: Woods, McIlroy, Mickelson.

The score ranges from zero to six where a 0 would indicate no evidence of book cooking, and a 6 would indicate a high likelihood. The ETF registered $-109.84M asset outflows for -0.27% decrease, reaching $40175.12M after yestarday's trading session.

Malnati rarely is without a smile, even though this is the a year ago of his exemption from winning an opposite-field event in MS in the fall of 2015. Today I tried to make sure I hit the putts harder and I kept pulling them.

"I've hit it well enough to be right next to that lead", he said.

At least he hasn't lost his sense of humor.

13 feet, two inches later - Woods' birdie putt on No. 9, his final hole of the day, disappeared into the hole and left Woods to lift his arms in the air in mock it's-about-time celebration. Tiger Woods also makes his first start in the event since 2012, when he missed the cut. He finished T28 at the WGC-Bridgestone, then made the cut in his first appearance at Quail Hollow as he finished T61 at the PGA Championship.

"I'm on a hot streak right now, I made the last putt", Woods said when he met with reporters.
