Simpson tied for Wells Fargo leads
Webb Simpson is in a three-way tie for the lead at the Wells Fargo Championship after carding a first-round seven-under-par 65.
With the the tournament being held in his home town of Charlotte, North Carolina Simpson was expected to do well and didn't disappoint, carding an eagle and six birdies on his way round Quail Hollow on Thursday.
Simpson would have led the tournament outright had he not dropped a shot at the 16th, leaving the door open for Stewark Cink and Ryan Moore to join him at the top of the leaderboard.
Cink shot a flawless round of 65 with seven birdies, while Moore dropped two shots but fired an impressive nine birdies to keep himself in contention.
Further back on the trio is former Wells Fargo champion Rory McIlroy after he fired a first round 70, which featured a three-putt bogey at the last.
Tiger Woods is a shot back on McIlroy after he could only manage a one-under 71, claiming a poor front nine ruined his chances of having a good round.
"I made too many mistakes on the front nine," said the 14-time major winner.
"I didn't get up and down a couple times and made a couple of bad shots on the wrong side of the hole. Even on 10, you can't miss it right, and I missed it right."
