Wells Fargo Championship 2018: John Peterson Holds 2-Stroke Lead After Round 1

John Peterson upstaged several big names to grab a two-shot lead at the Wells Fargo Championship as Tiger Woods made a solid start. With AP Photos.Tiger Woods has been at Quail Hollow four days. He stretched out both arms in mock celebration after his 2-over 74 that got him just inside the cut line.

"I've struggled with the greens being as slow as they are", said Woods.

"If I did hit a green, I hit it above the hole, I hit it in the wrong spot. I just didn't make anything today". "I haven't felt comfortable hitting the putts as hard as we have to hit them this week". He took three putts on Nos.

Playing with Masters champion Patrick Reed and U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka, Woods played well enough to be within touch of the leaders.

Starting his round on the back nine, Woods carded bogeys at 11 and 14, then rattled off nine consecutive pars.

It missed. He missed from 8 feet. 'I really struggled getting the pace right. If I just putt normal I'm right there. As was the case on Thursday, Woods hit the ball well, but couldn't find the cup with his putter.

Justin Thomas, who won his first major at Quail Hollow past year, the PGA Championship, struggled to a 2-over 73 and sits in a tie for 79th. The greens can be cut shorter and rolled to help pick up speed, but Woods understands he has to play to the course. And he was still out of golf recovering from back surgery last summer when Quail Hollow hosted the PGA Championship.

Well, that is if the 42-year-old can figure out the speed of the greens at the Quail Hollow Club.

This is a new course to him. Woods ranked 143rd (out of 156) in strokes gained putting at minus-4.131, meaning he is giving up more than four strokes to the field on the greens.

"I certainly was frustrated, there's no doubt about that".

'The golf course has gotten more hard, a lot longer. "And I did that all day and, unfortunately, I didn't make anything until the last hole".

Perhaps more important, that putt should keep him around for the weekend, as he was in danger of missing the 36-hole cut. It effectively secured two more rounds.

"The guys past year that played the PGA were telling me how quick they are and how slippery they were", Woods said. Despite winning this tournament in 2007, he failed to make the weekend in each of his last two appearances at Quail Hollow (in 2010 and 2012) ended like this one.
