An eight-under in the second round allowed Nick Watney to take sole possession of first place at the Wells Fargo Championship.
Watney, the 25th-ranked golfer in the world, started his round off strong with four birdies on the front nine. He cooled off a bit on the back, but an eagle on the par-five 15th allowed him to storm from 4-under to first place. Webb Simpson is only one back at 11-under, and a pack of Stewart Cink, Ben Crane, D.A. Points, and John Senden are two back at 10-under. Crane also shot an 8-under to catapult himself into the tie for second place.
Tiger Woods notably missed the cut. Rory McIlroy, who was very recently the World Number 1, had a good day to finish four-under, finishing in a tie for 14th place at six-under.
