Joaquin Niemann, 19, played in the Masters in April, then turned pro two weeks later. Vogel, playing in his fourth PGA Tour event of the year, is at 4-under, good enough for a one-shot lead over Peter Malnati, Aaron Wise and Rory McIlroy.

This tournament has been one of McIlroy's best. However, the 29-year-old who doesn't have so much as a Web.com Tour victory on his resume tamed the hard Quail Hollow track with two eagles and three birdies against a lone bogey Thursday.

"Not often do you go nearly 30 minutes without having to putt", Peterson said, per PGA Tour Media.

In a limited sample size - Woods has played just six events this season - his 2018 statistics compare favorably with '13 and '06. "I know a little bit has been said about me retiring if I don't make the necessary money for my medical starts, and all that's true". Like Justin Thomas, Fleetwood has yet to miss a cut this season. "Yeah, he hit it - for how old is he, he hit it really long, and yeah, he's really good". After a third place finish at the RBC, List disappointed his owners (myself included) who took him at the Valero Texas Open, missing the cut that week.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", said Woods, who received a warm welcome from the fans on the first tee box in his return to Charlotte. "I mean (Quail Hollow) is really long (7,554 yards)". I'm not a McIlroy guy - in fact, I usually hate playing him because of frequent high ownership and a less-than-average putter, but he arrives in-form and ready to attack a course which he has won on twice and has six top 10s in eight tries.

Before you make any bets or enter a daily fantasy golf tournament on DraftKings or FanDuel, you'll want to hear what the team at SportsLine has to say. While we definitely will take that into account in this week's picks, the course should be playing significantly easier.

"I'm pretty bummed out", Mickelson said. "Yeah, he was incredible. It would be nice".

The Wells Fargo Championship has traditionally been held at Quail Hollow since 2003, but was moved to Eagle Point in Wilmington, N.C., in 2017 as Quail Hollow prepared for the season's final major.

Without a win this week, Peterson may just get his unique wish.

Next up on the PGA Tour is the 16th edition of the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Golf Club, which once again stages the tournament following last year's absence due to the PGA Championship.

"It's certainly odd not defending at the course that you won, but that's just the way it is", Harman said. 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.

"It's such a learning curve out here on Tour with the golf courses and the competition and I'm just getting comfortable. It suits me and it's always been one of my favorite tournaments, so I'm thrilled to be back". The course layout has changed since the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship as it is now a Par 71. But to win in that fashion.

McIlroy used 29 putts in the round, with birdies on all three par 5s. They're replaced by Roberto Diaz, Lanto Griffin and Cameron Tringale.
