Day 2: Lessons learned, questions ahead

  Five things we learned at the Wells Fargo Championship Friday:
  1. It's possible for Tiger Woods' golf ball to disappear in front hundreds of spectators
  2. Phil Mickelson couldn't will a birdie putt into the hole.
  3. Rory McIlroy has hit just 10 fairways in two rounds but has kept leaders in sight.
  4. The guys who played Friday afternoon got, by far, the toughest playing conditions.
  5. Stewart Cink's swing changes may be kicking in at just the right time.

  Five things to watch Saturday:  1. Who will make the big move early and play themselves into contention?
  2. How tough will Quail Hollow play after surrendering so many low scores?
  3. Will thunderstorms get in the way of third-round action?
  4. Wonder what Tiger Woods is doing today?
  5. How many spectators will be watching golf and how many will be socializing today at Quail?
