After a first-round 68, Zach Johnson shot even-par 72 on Friday at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC, at the Wells Fargo Championship. Johnson, a Cedar Rapids native, is 4-under-par for the tournament, and trails Phil Mickelson by five shots. Here’s the story from Associated Press about the tournament’s second round:

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Phil Mickelson isn't having too much trouble at all with the greens at Quail Hollow.

Mickelson opened with two birdies and made back-to-back birdies late in his round for a 5-under 67 that gave him a two-shot lead going into the weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship. Through two rounds, he has taken only 50 putts.

Nick Watney, playing alongside Mickelson, made a few key par putts for a 70 and was in that the group two shots behind with George McNeill and 37-year-old tour rookie Scott Gardiner. Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood were another shot back.

The greens are so choppy that Sergio Garcia chose to chip a 5-foot putt because of a cleat mark. He made it, went on to a 68 and was five shots behind.
