Wells Fargo Championship tee times: Tiger Woods, Patrick Reed paired together

Woods has been out of action since the Masters, where he didn't look sharp with his iron game. "From one generation to the other, at both ends of the spectrum, it's been incredible".

The Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Country Club began as a PGA Tour event in 2003. He has played in eight tournaments this year and has finished 22 or better in all eight.

That was before Peterson came to life late in his round. "At the par-5 seventh he holed out from the greenside bunker (56'7") for eagle.

Reed won't even buy into the notion that no matter what happens the rest of the year, this will be his best year.

Peterson had never led after any round in 89 starts on the PGA Tour, and he didn't seem all that worked up over it.

"I don't hate it out here, but I don't like the travel at all", Peterson said, according to the Charlotte Observer. "I made some good swings, hit some good putts, and 68 is a good way to start". Even in a round that ended back at square one, that proved to be good enough to keep Woods in the hunt ... or at least to make the cut, which he hasn't done his past two tournaments at Quail Hollow.

To remain on Tour, he'll need to earn either 237 FedExCup points or $318,096 in his next three events, including this week. While we definitely will take that into account in this week's picks, the course should be playing significantly easier.

If he wins this week? "I want to go out, compete and get that feeling more and more and try to win as many golf tournaments as I possibly can". That being said, the absence of another par 5 is something we must factor in when choosing our golfers on DraftKings.

But it's early, and he knows that from experience. North Carolina is Murray's home state and he enjoyed a fine majors debut when Quail Hollow hosted last year's PGA Championship - reaching contention through 54 holes before a understandably poor Sunday sent him down to 22nd.

On a congested leaderboard, Peter Malnati, Tyrrell Hatton, Johnson Wagner, Keith Mitchell and Kyle Stanley are at four under in a tie for second.

Rory McIlroy is aiming to bounce back from a disheartening Masters finish when he tees it up this week at the Wells Fargo Championship, where the Northern Irish star is a two-time victor.

Former champions Rory McIlroy and James Hahn join up with Paul Casey.

Woods has had a few weeks off since the Masters, where he finished 32.

"The way this golf course is set up and the way it's playing right now, the guys are going to be stacked", Woods said. He took three putts on the fourth and 16th and was exasperated after missing out on a chance to birdie the hard closing 18th hole, rolling a putt just past the cup.

It was a tough adjustment for Woods and everyone else. Its fairways are narrow, its rough can be very long (more on that in just a second) and the greens are firm and fast. They're on the slower side. "I struggled making the adjustments today".

He was tied for 35th, his worst position after the opening round since he was tied for 61st at Riviera in February.
