Tiger back for Wells Fargo looking to build

McIlroy, the only two-time victor of this tournament, was within one shot of the lead with seven holes to play.

Though he wouldn't divulge what he has typed in his phone as his personal goals for 2018, "Make everyone like me", likely didn't make the list. McIlroy is a two-time victor at this event, has three other top-10s, and finished 22nd at the PGA Championship here a year ago.

Woods, who has 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major championships, hasn't won a tournament since 2013 because of back and knee issues that dropped him from the best golfer in the world to an also-ran.

Brian Harman - Brian Harman has produced top-25 finishes in two of his last three events and is now seventh in greens in regulation percentage and 16th in birdie average.

Starting on the 10th at Quail Hollow, McIlroy began his round brightly with three birdies in his opening six holes. He took three putts on the fourth and 16th and was exasperated after missing out on a chance to birdie the hard closing 18th hole, rolling a putt just past the cup. Despite being a 25-1 long shot, the model projected him as a top contender. Mickelson is 1st in strokes gained: putting (Bermuda) and is 1st on the entire Tour in putts per round this season. "I want to go out, compete and get that feeling more and more and try to win as many golf tournaments as I possibly can". "I've done OK (at Quail Hollow) and and I finished (tied for) 13th in the PGA". This standard par 72 has four par 5's and four par 3's that stretches out 7,575 yards. The Aussie was right in contention to win his second major, only to fluff his lines on the final two holes, as he bogeyed the 17th then carded an eight on the last. Although he doesn't have the length off the tee we would normally like, his magical putter can more than make up for it. Talk about the rub of the green going someone's way. Since then, he finished T37 at the Genesis Open, 4th at the Honda Classic, T14 at the WGC-Mexico Championship, T26 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and T17 at the Masters.

The South African has done this column a couple of favours over the past year, most recently with a flying start at the Heritage (another course where he had previous).

Woods was six shots behind after a day in which he struggled to get his speed right on the greens. "I don't care about the U.S. Open or The Open Championship". In this second season on tour, (he won during his rookie campaign), he's also registered four further top-20s including last time at San Antonio. However, at just +1100 odds you might be better off looking elsewhere when it comes to identifying a golfer to win the Wells Fargo Championship outright.
