Tiger Woods survives the cut at Wells Fargo Championship

He scored 73, two above par, Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship.

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. Phil also has been producing some impressive birdie-making and bogey-avoiding numbers, ranking 2nd in both Birdie or Better % and Birdie Total and 1st in Bogey Avoidance (over the past 24 rounds).

He did not attempt to backtrack on his comments that he did not "care about the US Open or the Open Championship" after a three-under 68 on Thursday which kick-started his quest for a third Wells Fargo Championship.

Tiger Woods waited until his final hole at the Wells Fargo championship to record the first birdie of his round and it got him just inside the cut line. He is also expected to add the Memorial Tournament in early June, giving him three tournament starts before next month's U.S. Open.

"It was a little bit disappointing I didn't hit my irons as well as I needed to for this particular week, " Woods said after the Masters. I just like being at home and I like being around my family and friends more than I like chasing it around here.

Woods hit a 13-foot putt on that pivotal birdie, his only made putt longer than six feet all day. With so many high-quality players jammed into such a small space on the leaderboard, the weekend at Quail Hollow is sure to be thrilling.

From the time Woods teed it up at the Farmers Insurance Open in January, there was a steady progression toward the Masters and never more than a two-week stretch of tournaments skipped.

This week, McIlroy is playing his first event since the Masters at a place where he has won twice, including 2015. "I've got everything in place for both sides of it, so I'm not going to be bothered if I make it".

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.

See the clubs Rory McIlroy used to win... Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship last summer at Quail Hollow. Though it might play a little differently since it is not a major, it is something that can not be ignored.

Hoping to avoid a similar round yesterday, Thomas turned to his playing partner and close friend Rickie Fowler for assistance. The reason for that lies in his 9 top-10's at Quail Hollow in years past.

Another player with distance that I will be targeting from this price point is Gary Woodland ($7,400).

Returning to a hard course where he has had success in the past might be just the tonic to kickstart a return to form, Lee posting just one top-10 this season and that coming in October a year ago.
