Westwood, Gardiner tied for lead at Quail Hollow

11 a.m. update: Lee Westwood and Scott Gardiner are both at 4-under for the day and are tied for the lead at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club.

Gardiner has birdied three straight holes -- 6, 7 and 8 -- and shares the lead with Westwood at 6-under par, one stroke ahead of a huge (nine) group of players. Among them is Rory McIlroy, who is even for the day.

Vaughn Taylor, a Monday qualifier, is 3 under for the day and part of that logjam behind Westwood and Gardiner.

Gardiner is an Aussie who has just one top 25 finish this season and has missed eight straight cuts. Looks like that streak comes to an end Friday.
