Xander Schauffele increases Wells Fargo lead; Rory McIlroy T2

schauffele

Xander Schauffele built up a four-stroke lead after two rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship by posting a 4-under 67 on Friday in Charlotte, N.C.

The World No. 4 started the day with a three-shot cushion on the field and went out to produce a five-birdie round to get to 11-under 131. He finished his round at Quail Hollow Club with his only bogey of the day after missing the 18th green in regulation and lipping out a 14-foot would-be par save.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland (68) and Jason Day of Australia (67) are the closest to Schauffele, tied at 7 under.

McIlroy had four bogeys on Thursday but put those struggles in the rearview Friday by carding three birdies and 15 pars.

Taylor Moore shot his second straight round of 68 to get to 6 under and was tied with Collin Morikawa and Sungjae Im of South Korea, who were still on the course late Friday afternoon.

The sixth signature event of the season comes with a $20 million purse while also serving as PGA Tour players’ final tune-up before next week’s PGA Championship. There is no 36-hole cut.
