Mickelson maintaining 1-shot lead

Noon update: Phil Mickelson is maintaining his slight lead at the Wells Fargo Championship, playing an even-par round through 10 holes and leading Charles Howell III, Lee Westwood, Ryan Moore and Charlotte's Robert Karlsson by one shot.

Westwood briefly tied Mickelson for the lead before bogeying No. 12.

The rain began to fall at about 9:30 a.m. and has maintained at a steady drizzle.

Howell is at 4-under for the day. Nick Watney, who began the day tied for the lead with Mickelson, is 2-over, thanks to bogeys on 6 and 8.
