CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Patrick Reed is without a top 10 on home soil in more than 10 months but starting to show signs his game might be turning around.
Reed played bogey free on a tough Quail Hollow course on Thursday for a 4-under 67, giving him a share of the lead among the early starters at the Wells Fargo Championship. Adam Schenk, Martin Laird and Nick Taylor also were at 67.
Reed hasn’t had a top 10 since his runner-up finish in Dubai to end the European Tour season in November. His last top 10 in America was fourth place in the U.S. Open last June.
He did everything well on a firm, fast course that made it tough to get close to the hole.
Defending champion Jason Day was at 68.
