World No. 174 Danny Lee withdrew during the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship citing a back injury.
This is the 30-year-old's 14th mid-tourney WD in 263 events, third of the season in 17 starts. It's his second in his last five starts, joining the Valero Texas Open, where he was 6-over thru nine holes in R2, 11-over total, before walking off with a shoulder injury. The South Korean-born New Zealander, who finished 45th in the FedExCup standings last season, arrived this week 173rd in FEC points with two top 25s, including a season-tying-best T21 at last week's Valspar (70-67-70-72). Today, he was 3-over thru 15 holes (4 birdies, 7 bogeys), and after back-to-back squares at 14 and 15, both of which began with watered tee balls, the Texas resident called it a day. Lee also WD'd the U.S. Open back in September (wrist), where he had made the cut but exited after an 8-over 78 in R3 (13-over total).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 204 Kyle Stanley handed in a 4-under-par 35-32=67 after the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship to sit T4 on the leaderboard, three swings shy of pace-setter Phil Mickelson.
The Clemson product, who wrapped today with 11 consecutive pars, is making his eighth appearance with three previous top 25s and two top 10s, including a T8 in the last edition contested in 2019 (69-69-71-68). He arrived 13-for-19 on the season with four top 25s and one top 10, a T6 at The RSM Classic 14 starts ago, where he was T5 after 36 and 54 holes, respectively (67-65-68-66), and off a T39 at last week's Valspar (68-70-72-71). The Gig Harbor, Washington, native is in the top 10 after 18 holes for a third time this season, first since T3 two starts ago at the Zurich teamed with Kyoung-Hoon Lee, where the tandem ultimately finished T23 (63-74-64-75) after struggling in the alternate-shot portion of the event. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, he posted 1.285 SG: Off-the-Tee, 2.523 SG: Approach, 1.064 SG: Around, and 4.871 SG: Tee-to-Green, No. 3-ranked in the latter. All of the 33-year-old's scoring took place on his first nine, offsetting a lone bogey-4 at 13 (missed par-saver from 5'7") with three circles at 10, 15 and 16, each from inside of six feet, and a hole-out eagle-2 at 11 from 163 yards away. He recorded 1.583 putts per GIR and -0.026 SG: Putting, saving par two times from between 12 and 13 feet, but missed four other putts from inside of 10 feet.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 249 Keith Mitchell tossed together a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for a six-way T4, three adrift of leader Phil Mickelson.
The 29-year-old arrived 10-for-17 on the season with three top 25s and one top 10, a T4 two starts ago at the Zurich teamed with fellow Tennessee native Brandt Snedeker. At last week's Valspar, he finished 69th (last) on 9-over 293 (70-70-71-82), where he also finished last in SG: Putting, lowlighted by a career-worst -8.884 on Sunday. On what worked well today versus last Sunday, Mitchell had this to say: "I figured out my putter was bent on Sunday. When I got here, it was a couple degrees upright and a couple degrees too much loft. I knew I was putting well and I was just hitting putts short and left. On the putting green it felt wrong. I took it to the truck and bent it back and that's all it was." This is the Georgia alum's third straight Wells Fargo with two prior paydays, including a T8 in the last edition played in 2019, where he was T8 after Day 1 (68-74-66-69). On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he lost 1.899 strokes around-the-green but gained 2.287 off-the-tee, No. 1 in that stat, and 2.789 on approach. Mitchell rang up eight birdies at 14, 15, 18, 2-5, and 7, taking some gloss off with double bogey-5 at 6, and a walk-off bogey-5 at 9, both of those failed scrambles. He registered 1.500 putts per GIR and 1.669 SGP, converting two scoring chances from between 10 and 20 feet.

World No. 61 Gary Woodland enjoyed a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship to sit T4 on the leaderboard, three back of pace-setter Phil Mickelson.
This is the Kansas alum's ninth WFC with three prior top 25s and one top 10, a T4 four tries ago in 2015 (70-71-68-67). Today's 67 matches his low at Quail Hollow in 30 rounds and he characterized it post-round: "It's as much fun as I've had on a golf course for a long time. I didn't drive it great, but iron play has been as good as it's been in a year and everything felt pretty good. Made a decision last weekend, pretty much rock bottom there playing as bad as I did last week, went back and worked with Butch over the phone on Saturday, saw Pete Cowen on Sunday and really just went back to what I was doing three, four years ago." The 36-year-old arrived 7-for-14 on the season with two top 25s and one top 10, a T6 at Valero three starts ago (71-72-67-69), and off a missed cut by seven at last week's Valspar on 6-over 148 (77-71). This is his first time in the top 10 after 18 holes since T4 at the Farmers eight starts ago before fading to T48 (66-75-77-70). On six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, Woodland posted 0.480 SG: Off-the-Tee, 2.188 SG: Approach, 1.380 SG: Around, and 4.047 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 5 and 16 (failed scrambles), outflanked by six birdies at 2, 7, 10, 11 (hole-out from 25'4" away), 12 and 15, two conventionally from between 13 and 15 feet. Woodland recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 0.798 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 175 Luke List walked off with bogey but still carded a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for T4 on the board, three swings shy of leader Phil Mickelson.
This is the Vanderbilt alum's sixth WFC with two previous top 25s and one top 10, a T9 two attempts ago in 2018 (70-72-67-70). He arrived 9-for-21 on the season with four top 25s, most recently a T17 four starts ago at Valero (73-71-70-69), and two top 10s, including a season-best T8 at the stand-alone Corales back in September, where he was T2 at the midpoint (69-65-71-71). The Augusta, Georgia, resident is in the top 10 after 18 holes for the first time since the Farmers 11 starts ago, where he was T4 before eventually finishing T10 (66-77-72-66), his other top 10 on the campaign. On six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he gained 0.757 strokes off-the-tee, 1.852 approaching and 0.069 around-the-green. The Seattle, Washington, native squared two bogey-5s at 12 and 9 (failed scrambles), outpaced by six circles at 10-15, 16, 1, 4 and 7, four from between 10 and 29 feet with two dropping from beyond 22 feet. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.168 SG: Putting, missing two birdie chances from inside of nine feet but also saving par at 14 from 8'3". List regarding swinging well but not scoring: "Yeah, that's been the majority of my career. So it seems like whenever I can putt halfway decent, I get up in contention a little bit...so it's nice to see some putts go in again."

World No. 27 Tommy Fleetwood styled a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for T4 on the leaderboard, three in arrears of pace-setter Phil Mickelson.
This is the Englishman's second appearance after a missed cut by three in 2018 on 6-over 148 (74-74). He arrived 8-for-11 on the season with three top 25s and two top 10s, most recently a T5 at the WGC-Dell Match Play two starts ago, where he won Group 5 as the 21-seed (2-0-1) before losing in the quarterfinals on Saturday afternoon to eventual champ Billy Horschel in 19 holes. The 30-year-old, who checked in off a missed cut by one at the RBC Heritage three weeks ago (76-65), is in the top 10 after 18 holes for the first time since T3 at the 2019 Open Championship 26 starts ago (Royal Portrush), where he ultimately finished a career-tying-best solo 2nd. On eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he gained 1.748 strokes on approach, 1.771 around-the-green, and eked out a 0.025 off-the-tee. Fleetwood was 1-over thru seven holes, squaring bogey-5 at 4 (missed par-saver from 8'5"), but then played his final 11 in bogey-free 5-under, circling three birdie-3s at 8, 11, and 14, adding a chip-in eagle-3 at 10 from 74'1" away. He registered 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.283 SG: Putting, converting his three birdies from between nine and 22 feet. Fleetwood afterwards: "Just really happy. I had a good stretch through the middle of the round where I hit a lot of good drives, hit some good iron shots, a chip-in eagle. I felt like I was doing a lot of things well, and when I did put in in play, my iron shots, it's not that they were like -- I wasn't hitting it really close, but I was making it very stress-free, I was hitting good shots. Overall, just sort of put like a solid round together and really happy with minus 4."

World No. 74 Keegan Bradley painted a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship to sit T2 on the board, two adrift of leader Phil Mickelson.
The 34-year-old checked in 12-for-18 on the season with seven top 25s, three consecutive, and two top 10s, two straight. He began the run of top 10s with T4 at the Zurich two weeks ago teamed Brendan Steele, and at last week's Valspar, finished solo 2nd, where he led/co-led after each of the first three rounds before stalling out with an even-par 71, three short of playing competitor and first-time TOUR winner Sam Burns. This is the South Florida resident's fifth Wells Fargo with one prior cash, a T76/MDF two tries ago in 2018 (68-77-72). On 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he gained 1.322 strokes off-the-tee, 0.287 approaching and 1.549 around-the-green. The St. Johns alum ticked five birdies at holes 4, 5 (hole-out from 42'8" away), 10, 15 and 17, two conventionally from between 10 and 56 feet. He recorded 1.714 putts per GIR and 2.652 SG: Putting, buoyed by a par-save at 9 from 12'3". Bradley post-round: "Well, I just played really well and then I made some really nice putts. I made a really nice putt for par on 9, kept me going. Made a 50-footer on 17, kind of a bonus one. Man, playing really well. To go around this course, shoot that score with no bogeys is serious, so I'm excited about that."

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 115 Phil Mickelson birdied two of his final three holes en route to a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship, currently leading by two over Kyoung-Hoon Lee (66) and Keegan Bradley, who is playing the 18th.
There's players still on the course but the 50-year-old looks to be on his way to a 30th 18-hole/lead co-lead in 643 events, first since the 3-course Desert Classic in 2019 (47 starts ago). He's converted nine of his previous 29 into victory, zero for his last five, with his most recent conversion the 2013 WM Phoenix Open, where he led by four and went on to a 4-shot wire-to-wire victory (60-65-64-67). At the aforementioned Desert Classic (now American Express) in January, 2019, he led by three after a career-tying-low 12-under 60 (LQ) before settling for T2, one shy of champion Adam Long. The Hall of Famer arrived 7-for-13 on the season with two top 25s, most recently a season-best T21 at the 85th Masters two starts ago, and off a missed cut by one at last week's Valspar (73-69). On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he posted 1.538 SG: Off-the-Tee, 2.742 SG: Approach, 1.678 SG: Around, and 5.980 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Arizona State alum squared a lone bogey-5 at 11 (missed par-saver from 9'1"), smothered by eight birdies at 10, 14-16, 18, 1, 7 and 8, with a long of 16'3" at the par-4 14th. He recorded 1.429 putts per GIR and 1.831 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. Mickelson afterwards: "I'm present on each shot. This course holds my attention. I've been doing some like, you know, some mental exercises and so forth just to try to get my focus to elongate over five hours and so forth."
