CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Rickie Fowler made three birdies on his last four holes for a 6-under 66 and a five-way tie for the lead Thursday among the early starters in the Wells Fargo Championship.
Scoring was relatively low on a scorching day at Quail Hollow, with nearly one third of the players breaking 70 from the morning wave. Fowler was joined at 66 by John Senden, Brian Davis, D.A. Points and Patrick Reed, who turned pro last year after playing on the Augusta State team that won the NCAA title.
Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy played in the afternoon.
Fowler is known for bright clothing and mop-top hair, though he is getting more attention these days for not winning on the PGA Tour. He appears to be trending in the right direction.
