With the projected cut currently at 1-under, Tiger Wood may be headed home early after shooting 1-over Friday at the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship, putting him at even overall for the tournament. The day could have been even worse, but Woods earned a free drop off his hooked approach on hole No. 5 when a fan apparently pocketed his ball after it landed in a clearing. Woods would have earned a one-stroke penalty if the ball had gone missing. He eventually was able to save par.
Meanwhile at the top of the leaderboard, Nick Watney took over sole possession of first place at 12-under overall with a score of 8-under Friday. He tied Ben Crane with the lowest score on the day to break through the three-way tie for the lead among Stewart Cink, Ryan Moore and Webb Simpson entering Day 2. Simpson is in second place after shooting 4-under to finish at 11-under overall. Crane and Cink are tied at 10-under and Moore is in fifth place at 9-under.
John Senden is currently the highest player on the leaderboard who has still yet to finish his round. He is at 1-under on the day through four holes starting on the back nine. At 7-under overall, he has a chance to make a big move up the leaderboard considering how well players have been shooting at Quail Hollow.
