This Week In Golf: Jason Day Wins Wells Fargo By Two Strokes

Adjust Comment Print

American John Peterson led the Wells Fargo Championship after the first round with a 6-under par effort, as several golfers trailed him by two strokes after Thursday, including fellow American Peter Malnati.

He has made the cut in all but one start, and seemed to be nearing his old form when he contended for victory in consecutive events in Florida in March.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson played a practice round together before April's Masters tournament. "We are normally paired up on the weekend if we are both playing well, and even that's a rarity". Tuesday Sawgrass saw the latest round of mutual appreciation between a duo who will be playing partners for the first two days of the Players Championship, in what represents a stunning switch in attitudes. We don't get the opportunity to do it very often. "Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me, but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and i think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round". "I said, 'Yeah, you and I have the same philosophy in how we approach chipping and how we do it".

'On the United States side, Brandt Snedeker and Jimmy Walker are two guys who have been ill and injured and aren't playing as well as they used to, so I think there are a whole new breed of players coming.

"We don't really get paired together", Woods said.

This is far from the first time these two Hall-of-Famers have teed it up together: over 30 times, in fact, on the PGA Tour.

District magistrate Chandra Bhushan Singh said "there will be no internet services from 2 pm today to 12 midnight tomorrow". On Thursday, chief minister Yogi Adityanath also called for the removal of Jinnah's portrait.

The last time Woods and Mickelson were in the same group was the first two rounds of the 2014 PGA Championship, where the PGA of America determines the groupings.

McIlroy, a four-time major victor, was part of the other feature group announced, being joined by Americans Jordan Spieth, a three-time major victor and reigning British Open champion, and Justin Thomas, who won last year's PGA Championship. In that time, he has covered more than 100 events, including majors and other PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour tournaments.

"The better than most" quote is attributed to NBC analyst Gary Koch, who described the long putt on the island green as it tracked toward the hole and dove into the cup.

Day had an bad day of wayward driving and squandered a three-shot lead on the back nine with consecutive bogeys, before rising to the occasion and hitting one of the best clutch shots of his life. "You know, I think what M.J. did, getting to the Finals and dominating the league like he did, he did it in a different way than LeBron is doing it, just because of the nature of their body, the build and their game and their mental makeup".

"I do enjoy it [playing with Mickelson] because we don't get to do it very often", Woods said. Woods has not played there since 2015. Woods' hold on the top spot was a big part of that.
