Round One: What we learned, what's next

   Five things we learned from the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship:
   1. Membership has its advantages as Quail Hollow member Webb Simpson showed.
   2. Tiger Woods is still chasing his swing and consistency
   3. When No. 17 plays only 167 yards with little wind, it's not so scary.
   4. Golf has a heart -- struggling Stewart Cink shot 65
   5. J.B. Holmes still has it as his 368-yard drive at No. 7 proved.

   Five questions entering Friday's second round:
   1. Will the scoring be as low or will the greens firm up and be more difficult?
   2. Can Woods, Mickelson or Westwood post a low number to get in contention?
   3. Is Patrick Reed a one-day wonder or will he stay in the mix?
   4. What will it take to make the 36-hole cut?
   5. Is this Rickie Fowler's breakthrough week on the PGA Tour?
