Peterson's 2 eagles carries him to lead at Wells Fargo

J.T. Griffin's first career round on the PGA Tour was not a memorable one.

Woods took three weeks off before entering the Wells Fargo, and he admitted he's not yet sure what level he can take his game to following fusion surgery on his back a year ago. On Woods' short walk from the driving range to the first hole, it was as if he had his own gravitational pull. 8 and 9. He double-bogeyed No. 8, followed by a triple bogey on nine.

That was before John Peterson came to life late Thursday afternoon. Then he holed a 56-degree wedge from 107 yards in the fairway for eagle on the next hole. To get to the 237 FedExCup points, he'll need to finish in a two-way tie for second or better. He got another par on the drivable par-4 14th but there was no reason to celebrate as he missed his birdie chance from four feet.

Peterson had never led after any round in 89 starts on the PGA Tour, and he didn't seem all that worked up over it. "Now I'm just trying to get a little better".

Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler all are playing for the first time since the Masters. This year, he earned a spot in the tournament due to the five-year exemption that exists for past champions of the event. "From one generation to the other, at both ends of the spectrum, it's been incredible".

If he wins this week? Good enough that it could have propelled him near the top of the leaderboard.

"Either way is fine with me", Peterson said. I'm busy trying to prepare and practice myself and get ready. "I have a couple of putts I missed that I usually make - at 14, at 16 - so I make those and I'm 2, 3 under par without really doing much".

But it's early, and he knows that from experience.

Reed returned last week at the Zurich Classic, a team event he played with Patrick Cantlay, and tied for seventh.

In 2007, Woods won the Wachovia Championship, the forerunner to the Wells Fargo, but a lot changed since he last played Quail Hollow. Paul Casey and Jason Day were among seven players at 69.

Woods was meeting him there after fulfilling his media obligations to figure out what went wrong with the flat stick Thursday during an even-par round of 71 that should have been in the 60s.

"This golf course is a lot harder than when I played", Woods said. "We're all going to be close", Woods said. Even on Sunday when I shot 4-under par, I was in some tough spots. It's a very odd combo to have firm [greens] but a little bit on the slower side.

His ball striking seemed to be just fine.

"I just gave you credit", Love shouted back.

'I just didn't make anything today, ' said Woods. He has four months left in the season.

"Every one", he said with a big smile. "He can obviously still play with everybody out here".
