Playing in his first tournament since The Masters, Tiger Woods is having another middling round at the Wells Fargo Championship, but he's trying to salvage things on the back nine at Quail Hollow. Woods stumbled right out of the gate, bogeying the first hole at the tough Charlotte track. He had three bogeys and two birdies to go out in 37, but he's working to make a charge over the final nine to get into the red and move up the leaderboard. Woods birdied No. 13 and No. 15 to move to 1-under.
Woods's playing partner, Webb Simpson, co-leads with Stewart Cink and Ryan Moore at 7-under. Simpson lit it up on the front nine with a 31, which included an eagle on the par-4 eighth hole after sinking a wedge from 36 yards out. He continued his hot round on the back nine, and did not bogey a hole until he missed a putt on No. 16 to drop a shot and come back to Moore and Cink, who are both in the clubhouse. Simpson is one of the rising stars on tour, and a local, who will figure to be in the hunt throughout the weekend.
Rickie Fowler, the popular young star who has yet to win on Tour, shot his best opening round of the year with a 66. He is 6-under and just one shot off the lead, looking to finally break through at one of the most popular stops on the Tour. Rory McIlroy captured his first win on the PGA Tour at Quail Hollow just two years ago. He's back on the American circuit this season and is currently four shots back at 3-under.
