2:25 p.m. update: Phil Mickelson bogeyed the third hole and Scott Gardiner birdied No. 1: that adds up to a tie for the lead between the two at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow.

Mickelson and Gardiner are at 8 under, a shot ahead of rookie Derek Ernst and Nick Watney. Ernst birdied No. 1, as did Watney (although he would bogey No. 2).

Rory McIlroy is even par today, two shots behind the leaders. He birdied No. 4, then bogeyed the par-5 fifth.
