Rory McIlroy has birthday to forget at Wells Fargo Championship

The 28-year old was three shots behind leader Patrick Reed going into Sunday at the Masters, but failed to challenge as a final round 74 saw him finish six shots behind in a tie for fifth place.

Woods had an unspectacular round of 71 in his return to Quail Hollow after a six-year absence - mostly due to his balky back - and figured it would keep him and everyone else fairly close to the lead on a course that made it tough for anyone to get separation.

Woods, healthy again after a spinal fusion more than a year ago, is playing his seventh tournament of the year. Could this be the year he finally wins the event.? Tons of trees were removed to reduce shadows on the greens.

Day's round included a spectacular hole-out from a greenside bunker for eagle on the par five 10th hole.

McIlroy's first dropped shot came at the 18th when he found water with his approach shot to the par-4. The greens were firm, with balls bouncing high upon landing.

Oklahoma State earned 23 season-best marks and seven event titles to conclude regular-season track and field competition at the Arkansas Twilight in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Friday.

Peterson was only part of the show on a warm and breezy day at Quail Hollow, site of the PGA Championship last summer. That being said, course history should not be weighed as heavily as it is in other tournaments. Checked their stats. Crunched our numbers into our model. Making it worse was that Malnati was caught up in results, which have not been good, and he wanted to get back to trying only to be at his very best over every shot. With four top-10 finishes in his last nine starts, Moore could be a sneaky good value option to win this week's Wells Fargo Championship. And that would've been 10 out of 13, but he finished T11 in 2014.

"And that's not to take anything away from the PGA as well". It's important to note that Phil was still getting used to not having his lifetime caddy, Jim "Bones" Mackay, on the bag. Defending champion: Brian Harman.

He attributes his rough week at Quail Hollow last August to a lack of "focus". The projected cut line was 2 over.

"I would have taken that score before I went out there", he said of his 68. His stats certainly suggest it...

"I struggled making the adjustments today".

This week, Lowry is priced at odds of 125/1 to land the prize at the Wells Fargo, a tournament he finished 24th in previous year, marking one of his better displays of 2017. He ranks sixth in SG: Off-The-Tee and 23rd in Ball Striking. But if he does miss the green, he is 1st in Scrambling and 2nd in Sand Saves.

His putter also may have saved him in the end. Tommy Fleetwood at $9,000 checks all three boxes when looking through the key statistics. That's not what you would expect.

If you haven't heard of Tommy Fleetwood yet, here's a crash course. I putt a lot on memory. Boom, he made it - and then mocked himself.
