The magnificent seven lead the Wells Fargo Championship after the conclusion of the first round at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. Crowded at the top Rory McIlroy / Lecka / Getty Images World number two Rory McIlroy leads the seven strong pack at the top of the Wells Fargo Championship leaderboard at -5 under par. The score of -5 under par 67, proved to be a popular score today, no one seemed to be able to break out from the pack and lead by themselves. Accompanying Rory at the top are ; Ryan Moore, Nick Watney, Robert Garrigus, Derek Ernst, Daniel Summerhays and Nate Smith. Rory was comfortable with his game and himself; " I feel a lot more comfortable with my swing and a lot more comfortable with where my game is at, so that's always going to make it easier, but I love this golf course. I seem to play well around here, so that is also an added benefit. I was hitting some good shots in there and leaving the ball quite close to the pins for the birdies, which is what you need to do out here.  It's hard to hole on putts, but I played well. I gave myself plenty of chances and I'm really happy with the day." Just one shot back are the secondary six, all at -4 under par, they are,  Phil Mickelson, Boo Weekley, Zach Johnson, Lucas Glover, Kevin Streelman and Jason Kokrak. A resurgent Phil Mickelson was happy with his play, and is looking for a W. here; "When I picked up a club a week ago and started playing, I was playing really well, I wasn't trying to fix anything. I was just kind of swinging the club, and I ended up playing well at home and it kind of carried over into this week. I got just a little bit tired, I think, because I quit on a couple of those swings and pull hooked two drives on 8 and 9 and put myself in binds. I was unfortunate on 8 to be right behind the trunk. If I had been a few inches either way I probably would have been fine getting it on the green. But it was a bad drive that put me there. "Early in the morning when it was a little colder and there was a little drizzle and wind, it was difficult," Mickelson said. "As that went away, the scores got a lot easier. This is a great golf course in that there are some really good, easy birdie holes, and there are some really hard pars. Fortunately, when it was tough conditions, I played the harder holes and I was able to make pars and had the opportunity on the easy holes to make birdies.  But this is a great mixture of holes here. I really like this golf course, I think from tee to green it's one of the best I've ever seen. I've had some good finishes, but you're right. I haven't been able to break through and get a W. This year, hopefully, it will be different because I am playing well and I do really enjoy it here."
