A day-by-day look back at the Wells Fargo Championship:

Thursday: Playing in benign conditions in the morning, Argentina’s Angel Cabrera shoots a 6-under 66 to take the first-round lead. The wind picks up in the afternoon, but Phil Mickelson and Martin Flores manage to shoot 67s to tie for second. Charlotte’s Webb Simpson, former Clemson star Jonathan Byrd and Stewart Cink each shoot 68.

Friday: Flores and Cabrera tie for the lead at 9-under, but the day’s big news comes from Charlotte resident Brendon de Jonge, who ties a tournament record with a 10-under 62.

Saturday: Mickelson nearly matches de Jonge’s score from Friday with a 9-under 63. But J.B. Holmes shoots a 66 and takes a one-shot lead over Flores at 13-under. Mickelson is by himself in third place, two shots behind Holmes. David Scott
