Webb Simpson nervous with Tiger, and outplays him for 3-way tie at Quail Hollow
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) ' Webb Simpson said he was nervous playing golf with Tiger Woods. It sure didn't show.
Simpson chipped in for eagle and holed a 60-foot birdie putt that might have rolled off the 12th green if the cup didn't get in the way. It led to a 7-under 65 and a share of the lead with Stewart Cink and Ryan Moore in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship.
Woods one-putted three of the last four holes for a 71.
It was the first time Simpson had played 18 holes with Woods. They were paired in the final round at Doral, where Woods withdrew after 11 holes because of a sore left Achilles tendon.
Rickie Fowler was among those one shot back on a day of low scoring.
