Phil Mickleson has posted his intentions in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. Wells Fargo Championship Phil Mickelson / Getty Images Phil shot a second round -5 under par, 67 which moved him to the top of the leaderboard, leading by two shots at the close of play in the Wells Fargo Championship. Phil is happy with his putting, despite the poor state of the greens, but his driving still leaves a lot to be desired; " I got off to a good start. I birdied the first two holes, so that set a good tone for the round. The first 27, 28 holes I have not driven the ball very well which is, most people would say, not surprising. But before I came here, I was driving the ball phenomenal. I really am excited about the way I've been hitting it off the tee, and I'm looking forward to this weekend. After the 28th hole, after I played 10, I made a slight alignment adjustment and I was able to get it back to where I had been driving it. I think if I drive it well this weekend, it's going to be a fun weekend and I fully expect to. I've putted really well. It's been fun." Phil is a from horse, and it is difficult to beat a form horse to the finish line, unless of course there are some real thoroughbreds coming up behind. There are a few in this field, so Phil had better be aware. Three players share second place at Quail Hollow, all at -7 under par for the tournament, they are; Scott Gardiner, Nick Watney and George McNeill. A -5 second round from Scott, -4 from George and a modest -2 under par from Nick. Nick is excited about the week-end; " I'm excited for the weekend. It's always fun to play with Phil and Rickie. We had a good time, and I'm in good shape, so I'm excited." Scott was surprised to be where he is; " Probably nobody's more surprised than I am. But it's really a treat to play on such a great golf course. I've watched this tournament for many years, and I'm just it's great to be out here on the PGA TOUR and to play some good golf is nice too." George said there were some low numbers to be had out there; " There are some low numbers out there because the greens are soft. They're not putting great, but the greens are soft, so you can still aim at the flags and try to get close in. So I didn't feel like I had to shoot a low one. I just kind of plodded along and made some birdies here and there and not too many mistakes and we'll see where I end up." A bunch of players are at -6 under par, including Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy. Lee had a second round of -4 under par while Rory could only manage a -1 under par 71.
