Wells Fargo Championship: Tyrrell Hatton shares the lead, while Rory McIlroy almost misses the cut.
Tyrrell Hatton of England achieved a second-round six-under-par 65 to tie for first place at the Wells Fargo Championship.
He moved to eight under par with an eagle, six birdies, and two bogeys at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Hatton is tied for first place with Americans Wyndham Clark and Nate Lashley, who finished in 66 and 67, respectively.
The overnight leader, England’s Tommy Fleetwood, at six under, while Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy nearly missed the cut on one under.
McIlroy, playing in his first competition since missing the cut at the Masters last month, scored 73, with four bogeys and two birdies.
“Nobody is really getting away, and there aren’t that many low scores,” Fleetwood added.
“It just goes to show how difficult the golf test is out there.” I performed admirably. I believe that if you do that, opportunities will present themselves for you to seize.”
Hatton, who began his round on the back nine, finished strong, sinking a 26-foot eagle putt on the seventh hole, one of three putts of 25 feet or more in his final four holes.
