Woods makes cut at Wells Fargo despite putting woes

It's a list that includes Justin Thomas, who won last year's PGA Championship at Quail Hollow, newly minted Masters victor Patrick Reed and two-time Wells Fargo champ Rory McIlroy.

Lowry comes into the tournament fresh from a solid outing alongside fellow Irishman Padraig Harrington in the unique Zurich Classic two-man team event last week. In a range surrounded by Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Paul Casey, Fleetwood could go unnoticed.

His putter also may have saved him in the end.

"I'm on a hot streak right now", Woods joked with reporters following his round, referring to his continued struggles on the green.

That was a big-time epiphany for Malnati, one that has led to two consecutive rounds under par at an extremely hard golf course.

Never mind that it was the only putt he made longer than 5 feet.

The 30-year-old journeyman - ranked a lowly 673rd in the world - followed up his opening 67 on Thursday with five birdies and two bogeys to edge clear of the field at seven under after 36 holes at the Quail Hollow Club layout. 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.

McIlroy had attempted to pile the pressure on Reed ahead of the final round, pointing out his Ryder Cup rival was attempting to hold off some of the world's best players and claim a first major title.

Woods, a 79-times PGA Tour victor who needs three more wins to match Sam Snead's all-time record, used a new set of irons but it was the flatstick that caused his problems.

The Rory McIlroy Majors comments shocked traditionalists.

"I was saying yesterday the iron play just needs to tighten up", Day said.

Woods had an unspectacular round of 71 in his return to Quail Hollow after a six-year absence - mostly due to his balky back - and figured it would keep him and everyone else fairly close to the lead on a course that made it tough for anyone to get separation.

"I would have taken that score before I went out there", he said of his 68.

Man of the moment, Masters champion Patrick Reed, represent a tempting bet at 22/1. Though it might play a little differently since it is not a major, it is something that can not be ignored. Finau is coming off of a surprising Top 10 finish at The Masters on a sprained ankle and looked good this past weekend at the Zurich, finishing solo sixth with Daniel Summerhays.

"It's always nice to come back to a golf course and an event where you've played well before and you have some really good memories", said McIlroy, who has six top-10 finishes at Quail Hollow."I've always enjoyed the golf course through the different variations of it from 2010 all the way up until now", McIlroy said.
