Mitchell leads McIlroy by 2 at Quail
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Golf hasn't had this much noise, this much energy, since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Maybe it's just a coincidence that Rory McIlroy is right back in the thick of it at the Wells Fargo Championship.
He is playing in the final group for the first time since Riviera, a month before golf shut down and fans were mostly kept away the rest of 2020.
"It was buzzy, that atmosphere," McIlroy said after a 3-under 68 left him two shots behind Keith Mitchell. "Just so cool to play in an atmosphere like that again. I've missed it. I didn't think I would miss it as much as I did, but I really have. So to be in contention, to have the fans back, I really enjoyed it out there today and I'm excited about tomorrow."
