Sergio Garcia spun a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and leads Rory McIlroy by three strokes with 18 to play.

The Spaniard's four birdies and one bogey boost him to 14-under 196 for the week. With three birdies in his first six holes, he looked poised to post something similar to his second-round 61, but he couldn't keep it up. Among the highlights were a 12'11" birdie at the par-4 fourth and a 19'10" birdie at the par-4 sixth. He landed 17 GIR and is tied for the lead in that category for the tournament. Garica's last win on American soil came at the 2012 Wyndham Championship, and he will try and secure his ninth PGA TOUR win on Sunday.

A total of 78 players made the 36-hole cut on 1-over 145 at the Wells Fargo Championship but at 4-over 73-75=148, past champ Jim Furyk wasn't among them.

This was Furyk's first action since T4 at the Deutsche Bank last September. Despite the missed cut, his return from a 34-week layoff following wrist surgery has to be deemed a success all things considered. The 45-year-old and 2006 Wells Fargo champ completed 36 holes uneventfully insofar as the wrist is concerned, and circled four birdies against four bogeys and two doubles. He's scheduled to tee it up at THE PLAYERS next week where he'll be making his 21st appearance. Joining Furyk with early exits include: 146- Kevin Streelman ... 147- Henrik Stenson; Ryan Moore; Bill Haas; Shane Lowry; Kevin Kisner; Patrick Rodgers; Bryson DeChambeau ... 148- Charles Howell III; Jason Kokrak; Byeong-Hun An; Justin Thomas ... 149- Webb Simpson.

Henrik Stenson bobbed and weaved to a 3-over-par 38-37=75 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship and at 3-over 147, will miss the 36-hole cut.

Stenson's last missed cut came 36 events ago at the 2014 Honda Classic after rounds of 73-76. He followed that with a TOUR-leading 35 consecutive cuts made, but that comes to an end at the par-72 Quail Hollow Club where prior to this week, he had a 73.43 scoring average over 14 rounds and had missed the cut three times in five tries. The Swede circled seven birdies and at last check gained 2.908 strokes tee-to-green, but squared 10 bogeys and sits 144th in strokes gained: putting at -4.083. With his early exit, past WFC champ J.B. Holmes, who will make the weekend in Charlotte, moves up to the top spot on TOUR with 17 straight made cuts, tying Dustin Johnson who was idle.

Roberto Castro crushed Quail Hollow Club on the way to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, signing for the low round of the day and reaching 7-under 137 on the week.

The Georgia Tech product opened on the back nine and began the highlight barrage with an 11'2" birdie roll at the par-5 10th hole. Four holes later he stuck an 114-yard wedge to 11 inches for a tap-in birdie. The real fireworks would come on the difficult par-4 18th, though. On a hole that's surrendering more double bogeys than birdies on the week, Castro skipped the birdie entirely and holed out from 221 yards for eagle. With the hole averaging north of 4.4 strokes, Castro picked up more than two strokes on the field right there. Coming into the clubhouse, Castro missed a 4'6" par-saving attempt at the par-5 seventh, so this round could have gone even lower. He entered the week with a 3-for-3 record including a T8 in his last appearance, and he's well on his way to another strong finish here at a course that fits his eye.

Francesco Laporta overcame an early wobble to shoot 2-under-par 35-35=70 and take a one shot lead into the weekend at the Trophée Hassan II.

Starting from the tenth tee the rookie endured a wild first nine that saw him post 5 birdies (on 10, 12, 15, 17 and 18) and yet only make the turn in 2-under 35 thanks to a bogey-5 on 13 and double bogey-6 on 14. A birdie on No. 2 and bogey on No. 8 saw him card a level par second nine that left him one clear of the field after 36 holes on 6-under 138, unprecedented heights for a player who has plied his trade mostly on the Sunshine and Challenge Tours. He did provide a hint last week, however, when only a third round 77 prevented him finishing higher than T4 on the Challenge Tour. This week, at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, he will seek not to repeat the mistake as he sits ahead of Jeunghun Wang, Borja Virto Astudillo and Jason Scrivener, who are all in a tie for second. He's thus far taken a mere 49 swishes of the putter.

Andrew Loupe settled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, staking an early claim of the clubhouse lead at 8-under 136.

The LSU product really regressed on the greens today, after sinking seven putts from outside five feet, yesterday. In today's navigation of Quail Hollow Club, he rolled in just one putt from outside eight feet, it was a 17'5" birdie roll on the par-4 fourth hole. Loupe also missed a 4'6" par-saving attempt at the par-4 eighth, overall posting a -0.550 strokes gained putting number at the time he walked off the course. This was the fourth time in his career that he's led/co-led after the first round. Today's follow-up effort was not inspiring, but he's still in the clubhouse with the early lead, and he'll have two more rounds to push toward his first career PGA TOUR victory.

Zac Blair self-reported a bent putter during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship, disqualifying himself after 24 holes of play.

Blair's DQ was a mystery until he took to Twitter to announce the reasoning. He stated, "I let my emotions get the best of me today. Missed a putt on hole #5 and I hit my putter against my head, and proceeded to tap in for par. I noticed the putter on the next hole and went over to the official to let him know about the situation." When he says "I noticed the putter" he is referencing that the putter was bent after hitting it against his head. When he bent the putter, it became non-conforming, but he had already used the club by the time he noticed, leading the the DQ in this situation. Balir was 7-over-par at the time of his exit.

J.J. Henry withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship prior to his second round tee time, he was 3-over through 18 holes. For now, no injury has been cited as the reason for the WD.

Henry had an up-and-down opening round. He circled an eagle at the par-5 10th but also a double bogey on the par-4 14th hole. He sprinkled in five additional bogeys and two birdies, scribbling just nine pars. While his score does not look extreme, he only split four (of 14) fairways on the round. If any news about a potential injury pops up, we will make sure to pass along that information with an update.

Steve Wheatcroft walked all over Quail Hollow Club on the way toward a 7-under-par 32-33=65 to grab a piece of the early lead at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Wheatcroft traded an opening birdie with a bogey at the par-3 second hole. The latter came after a missed 4'8" par-saving attempt. At that point, you may not have predicted a 7-under round was in the cards. Wheatcroft had different plans, as he holed out from 43 yards at the par-5 fifth hole to circle his first eagle of the round. His second would come five holes later as he landed his approach shot to six feet, for a relatively easy eagle roll. Wheatcroft rinsed his approach shot on the par-4 14th hole, swallowing his second bogey of the round. He bounced back with a birdie at the next hole and rolled in a 19'4" putt from the fringe on the par-3 17th hole, keeping his stake of the lead intact. Last week's T36 at the Zurich Classic was his best result of the season and his most recent top 30 came at last year's Quicken Loans National where he finished T11 (19 tournaments ago).

Andrew Loupe torched Quail Hollow Club with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 to grab a share of the first-round lead at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The LSU product is known for his distance, but it was his short game that was clicking on all cylinders today. Loupe opened with a 12'5" birdie splash on the par-4 first hole and proceeded to roll in six more putts from outside five feet before making the turn. His last two birdie putts on the front nine totaled 63'3" (par-5 seventh and par-4 ninth holes). The flat stick wasn't done working yet, as he added two more birdie rolls coming in, both from outside 13 feet. Loupe walked off the course having gained 3.302 strokes with the putter and now he'll sleep on the co-lead with one of his playing partners, Steve Wheatcroft.
May 5 - 5:40 PM

Thomas Linard painted a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in round one of the Trophée Hassan II in Morocco, good enough for a share of the lead.

The Frenchman shares top spot with Aussie Jason Scrivener and Italian Francesco Laporta although he'll be disappointed not to hold the outright lead on his own after hitting 6-under with four holes to play. Linard arrived there via an eagle-3 at 12 along with birdies at 15, 16, 17, 2 and 4. His only blemish had come at 14 but he dropped another shot at 6 and then bogeyed 9 to fall back into a tie. Linard crafted one of the few afternoon rounds in the 60s at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam today after splitting 9 (of 14) fairways, hitting 11 greens in regulation and taking just 26 putts. His best result this season is T5 at November's Alfred Dunhill Championship while he ended a run of four missed cuts with T26 in the Open de Espana on his latest start.
May 5 - 1:23 PM

Rory Sabbatini withdrew from the Wells Fargo Championship prior to his round one tee time. Replacing him in the field is Martin Piller.

The South African had a trio of top 10s on his Quail Hollow resume, but also a six-pack of missed cuts. There was no reason or injury cited for this late, pre-tournament withdraw. Martin Piller jumps into his tee time slot today, and he will be making his Wells Fargo Championship tournament debut. Piller is 151st in the FedExCup standings, so any and all starts are crucial to the Web.com Tour graduate.
