Rory McIlroy ties clubhouse lead at PGA Tour's Wells Fargo Championship

If McIlroy is in need of an elixir for his Masters memories, a trip to one of his favorite courses, the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, might just do the trick.

Woods tied for 32nd at the Masters, failing to break par until the final round. Established stars like Tiger Woods (2007), Vijay Singh (2005) and Jim Furyk (2006) have won at Quail Hollow as well.

He will play in a group alongside Ted Potter Jr and Martin Kaymer, and the trio will tee off at 12:40pm (Irish Time) on Thursday, May 3, for their first round. He missed the cut in 2010, skipped the tournament in 2011 and took a five-year hiatus from the event after his poor showing in 2012.

On the other end of the spectrum is Phil Mickelson who has played this tournament 14 times without a single victory. Woods' back surgery has allowed him to rediscover the club head speed which he once took for granted. Fleetwood sports some similar top-notch stats as well, ranking 4th in this field in SG: Tee-to-Green, 2nd in SG: Off-the-Tee, 6th in Birdie or Better %, 7th in Birdies, 1st in Par 3 Scoring, (only) 51st in Par 4 Scoring, (but) 6th in Par 5 Scoring.

Hashmi was impressed by everything Woods did. Fleetwood now ranks third in SG: Off-The-Tee, 38th in Ball Striking, and 28th in Driving Distance. You are not making enough birdies if you are scrambling for par. Woods gave a clinic and played ping-pong with the young golfers.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", said Woods, who received a warm welcome from the fans on the first tee box in his return to Charlotte.

Just don't get the idea that he is satisfied with his year.

"It felt great. It felt good to just shut it down, to reflect, analyse, and try and think about how I can win events".

Woods wasn't sure what to make of the Masters except that his irons were off. Just inside our triple-figure price range, both Gary Woodland [100.0] and Kevin Streelman [110.0] have bags of course form. He missed the cut here in 2016 but finished T7 in 2015. These were all unknowns, and it wasn't that long ago.

Justin Thomas hopes to join some exclusive company - winning on the same golf course where the player won a major the year before. The scores have varied. McIlroy has won the tournament twice and owns the course record.

The last three occasions, the major champions didn't have a chance because they didn't play - Rory McIlroy (Congressional), Graeme McDowell (Pebble Beach) and Tiger Woods (Torrey Pines). And which long shots stun the golfing world? He got a nice boost by finishing ninth in the limited-field tournament in the Bahamas and has steadily climbed into the top 100, now settling at 93rd. It was exciting to see him out there with his dad.

Harman started the season hot with six straight top-10 finishes in the CJ Cup, WGC-HSBC Champions, RSM Classic, QBE Shootout, Sentry Tournament of Champions, and Sony Open. He also finished second at the Valspar Championship and seventh at the Arnold Palmer Invitational so it's not like he's a flash in the pan. Woods is ranked 33rd. Of course, that's where we come in.

This week is no exception.
